1. Did it ever have a good reputation?
Pushing dogs beyond their physical limits in a race that gets longer and harder every year, keeping them in substandard conditions, all for prize money only the human enjoys... it's a sick event.

If people want to pull sleds in a race they should do so, and leave the dogs out of it.
