This article presents the author's comments on the criticism of his article on moral realism in sports. The author agrees with his critics that use of harmful performance-enhancing drugs should not be approved. A sporting world without such practices would be a better place. He also agrees that sports like boxing glorify male violence and aggression. And the world would be a better place for women without these sports. However, the author believes that a realist epistemology could hurt these outcomes.
