  • 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."

  • It's all about psychology

    They do sports, so they are in good shape. But that is not the case of 3 years old children. That difference of abilities decreases our kids' self-esteem and makes them depressive. I think profesional sports should be banished of this planet. The children' lower confidence will pull down society into a psychological failure.

  • No no no

    Most of the athletes are maniac, alcoholic, and trouble makers. They cause lots of troubles all over the world. Sometimes they hurt their co-player and who wants to see such things be done by kids right? Athletes also are boastful. They like to boast every achievement they have. How poor.

  • No they are not!

  • Some athletes are bad role models

    Some are bad role models because they do drugs and they get caught then every one knows about it on the news and some end up going in jail. Some athletes never try to help anyone out but they act like they care but they really don't. It could affect how kids look at them.

  • Nope nope nope

    Look at the australian former nrl player todd carney. He was drinking his own urine. And then look at paul gallen and beau ryan who were both caught cheating with their partners and/or wives. Then there are the afl players who were caught taking cocaine and elicit drugs. They're terrible.

  • 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.

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
