Professionalism in sport
I believe professional sports people make ideal role models.
The definition of role model is "A person who serves as an example of the values, attitudes, and behaviours associated with the role. Role models can also be persons who distinguish themselves in such a way that others admire and want to emulate them." Professional sports people do just that. whether the person who looks up to them is looking at doing the same career choice when their older or even transferring the skills they learn from them into their everyday life. Professional sportsman train hard and repeatedly try to do their best effort which is a good skill for those who look up to the professional sportsman to pick up that skill.

Pro's resolution implies that all professional athletes make ideal role models for all people. Therefore, my burden is to prove that there are professional athletes who do not make ideal role models.

My character limit is 500, so I can't provide my arguments. I will provide examples of athletes who do not make ideal role models.

O.J. Simpson murdered 2 people

Mike Tyson raped a girl and went to jail.
