  • 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!

  • 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

  • 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."

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.

  • 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.

  • Athletes don't need to have the responsibility to be role models

    Athletes are suppose to do sport and not also having the responsibility of having a good impression. Athletes are also humans like us , is not fair for athletes , of you to expect that they are going to behave like you want them too. They have also a life and they have to enjoy it. I am not saying that they should behave badly , no , I am saying for example that if they are smoking , people like us shouldn't make a big deal.

  • I think tha tsports peaople are bad role models

    They can give the wrong messages. A lot of kids look up to these people and just because your a good sports player that doesn't mean you're a good leader. The bible says a good role model is honest, just , fair , not a bad sportsmanship and is encoraging.

  • They are not positive role models.

    Most athletes today only care about money and fame. Thy show little care for the children that they are role models for. Pro athletes (not all of them) commit crimes and show bad behavior on and off the court, field etc. On the positive side though they can teach kids to work hard to achieve goals and to follow their dreams. All in all though, athletes teach kids (as well as some older people) to show bad sportsmanship and tomake terrible choices in their sport and in life.

  • Athletes are bad role models

    I'm not saying that all athletes are selfish. But the majority have a monetary ambition. For example when they advertise unhealthy foods they do it for the money and they put aside their fans health. They use their talent as a way to lie to people especially children. Sometimes children thing all these junk food would transform them into their athletic role model. The people that deserve recognition are the military, policemen, and firefighters because they risk their lives to protect us and they do it without waving a flag for recognition.

  • Pro Athletes aren't going to help the kids

    No, I don't think their good role models. Their only looking for fame and will do anything to get people to notice them. I think a good role model is someone who try's to get kids to learn about the real world, like teachers or scientist, try to educate them because most kids don't focuses on school and why do you think that is? It's because all they want to do is be in sports like the pro athletes.

  • They belive they are alone

    Kids today admire a lot of sport stars,but these sport stars don't admire there fans.This leads to the breakdown in the kids life in which his or hers hero turns into their lives villain. The stars do bad things which help them do do there profession but those things affect others and also leads to the use of drugs and misleading in the supporters life.
