  • Athletes are good role models

    Athletes are good role models because they do charity events and they visit children in need. Some athletes are stupid and waste their money, but most are nice and care about being a good role model to children and adults. Athletes are very nice to their fans as well.
    They are very caring

  • I believe athletes are positive role models

    Many athletes understand their role as a higher figure and take a responsibility to serving their individual communities. The reason people may think they are bad role models is that the media only talks about what players do wrong. Rarely do you hear or see what each athlete does right. This leads to the only image seen as negative.

  • Role Models for life

    I think they are excellent role models for children. They show all the characteristics of a true performer. These can be used for physical and academic use. They show hard work, determination, team skills and commitment. Do you see any athletes quitting because they did a foul throw or a bad shot? No, this teaches kids that its fine to mess up, you learn from your mistakes. Bad role models, they cant take the pressure of being determined and thoughtful to others, all the care about is the money and fame and not what they are suppose to be thinking of...Showing children the correct way in life.

  • Yes they are but only few

    The few good athletes are tring so hard to be perfict example for children like foot ball player Kanoti. He built mousq in spain. There are reasons made athletes not do positively. Such as negative effective of their society. They are among on environment which is not supporting to be postive person. Most the people doing wrong habit for example drugs.

  • They are Role Models

    Mostly all good athletes try really hard to be a positive athlete for children. Some athletes spend time volunteer at many different venues, such as: Charity, hospitals and other sporting clubs. The try as hard as they can to make a good decisions and not to commit crimes. They Inspire young athletes to work hard for what sport they do whether if it is basketball, swimming,tennis, football, golf, cricket, baseball, soccer and many more.

  • Of course they are

    I think professional athletes should be role models because they inspire people, especially young and teenage children.Athletes inspire kids to play more outdoor activities and be fond of one particular sport. Then kids even start practicing, exercise and have the sense of competition. This inspiration leads them to an excellent life and they can fulfill their dreams.

  • There not good role models

    Pro sports stars are bad. Some don't but most do sports enhancing drugs. You can find them doing charities or caring for hurt children, but thats only publicity. Sure, they show hard work, but do they show sportsman ship? No. Most talk trash or backtalk other players. You could say that thats for publicity but a five year old wouldn't know that. Think about what your putting in these kids minds.

  • Of course they are

    Athletes are good role modes, because they can encourage young kids to follow their sport dreams. Even kids looked up to Babe Ruth when he was a baseball player. And why, you ask? Because he could always get a freaking ton of home runs, so he was a great role model.

  • Positive Role Models

    Role Models are somebody you look up to. Athletes are not all about the money and fame. What about the people giving money to charity or people who are dying of sickness...? Athletes show sportsmanship on and off the court. Now a days athletes like Kevin Durant are humble about their accomplishments!

  • They are terrible role models

    Not all athletes are sefish but the majoraty of it is sad. I mean most people think ahletes are good role models but I think the opposite. The little kids only look up to athletes is because they play the same sports as them or because they are good at playing.

  • Sports people are BAD role models.

    They do drugs, inappropariate behaviors, smoke and lots of other bad behaviors that does not help their health issues. They are egocentric. They only think about themselves. Do they realize that its not only affecting them but also another kids who look up to them may follow their wrong behavior.

  • Start To Be Spoilt Children

    In an interview with Steven Ortiz, a sociology professor at Oregon State and the author of several published studies on athletes' bad behaviour, explained:

    "Spoiled-athlete syndrome begins early in sports socialization. From the time they could be picked out of a line-up because of their exceptional athletic ability, they've been pampered and catered to by coaches, classmates, teammates, family members and partners. As they get older, this becomes a pattern. Because they're spoiled, they feel they aren't accountable for their behaviours off the field. They're so used to people looking the other way."

  • Hey kids, baseball players as role models are bad

    I think some baseball players are bad role models because they do drugs.Like Alex Rodriguez, Nelson Cruz, Johnny Peralta, and Everth Cabrera. Kids shouldn't be looking up to these kinds of people, for many other reasons other than doing drugs. Yeah they do charity events for kids, but take a look at their bad side.

  • Are you serious

    Has anyone watched the news lately,. I guess that you want you children looking up to ray rice, who knocked out his wife, or Alex Hernandez who just got convicted of 1rst degree murder, i know some are real role models, but half go to charitys just to get attention and to get people to recognize them more.

  • I don't think they are good role models they don't show it

    They think they have everything and that nobody will care what they do only their coaches. There are many stories of them doing drugs and hitting there girlfriends. My own opinion is that they shouldn't even be professional athletes. They can do most things wrong, even when they think they do.

  • Some athlets are terrible role models

    Think about Charles Barkley "I'm not your kids role mode," some of them only care about money and doing their job , although some are good role models , others do bad things and act in an inappropriate way. Do not judge people on how they are on the field, but off it as well. Your reall role model should be your mom or dad or the military. Judge by what you know kids

  • Sports Athletes are poor role models

    Sports athletes may seem like people you should look up to but most of the kind acts they do are mostly for publicity. Whether its bad sportsmanship or use of drugs there is nothing good for a kid to look up to. Kids only want to be like them because either they play the same sport they do or they are just good at the sport.

They should because alot of them have powerful words and since people look up to them they will also follow them.Everyone follows the top and famous people. Just like everyone starts wearing jordans when michael jordan started it
