Should professional athletes be banned for committing felonies?

  • Yes athletes should

    Professional athletes think they can get away with anything because the league allows it. If a regular person murders sum one, they get 25 yr to life. If pro athlete murder or kills a person they get suspension or fines or couple of months in jail. Its like the rules of society or the world doesn't pertain to professional athletes.

  • Pro Athletes should be banned from their sort if they break the law

    Pro Athletes should be banned from their sort because they broke the law. They already make a million dollars a year at least and can easily support themselves and their family. They also broke the law which shows that they are not fully equal because others probably haven't committed a crime in their whole lives.

  • Yes they should.

    I think professional athletes should be banned from their sport because breaking the law with no consequences because the are an athlete could lead to bad role modeling and violence in game. Child abuse and drug taking will have its effects on the player playing the sport and could lead to worse effort in game.

  • No they should not

  • You're a role model!

    As a role model athletes are on the top of the list. If the sport their in is their source of income then they shouldn't have to sell drugs or be hanging out with the scum that carry out these crimes. If they commit a felony there should be repercussions for their actions. There's kids, teenagers, and even some adults that look up to them. They're constantly in the public eye. So act like a professional and act like you have some sense.

  • Professional Athletes should be banned after committing a felony

    Athletes should be banned after committing felonies mainly because there are role models to kids even though it dose not state that in any written contracts its is a perk that comes with the job. Not only are they role models but committing any crimes will desensitize you to many things allowing for more violent ruthless athletes

  • People look up to them

    People look up to athletes and some of their fans are kids. Would you want your kids to be looking up to a athlete who did crimes? And as for second chances, if they truly love their sport, then they wouldn't break a law in the first place because they are scared to loose their profession.

  • Professional athletes are considered role models

    Yes, I believe if a professional athlete is found guilty of committing a felony, they should not be able to participate in sports. Regardless whether athletes want to be role models or not, our young consider them as people to look up to. We do not want our children emulating those that are committing felonies because they believe it to be cool.

  • My point is

    My second point I would like to make is that the athlete, once his job has been taken off him, will have to search for a new career. In order to get that job, you are asked numerous questions. One of the questions is have you been convicted of a crime? He/ she should answer truthfully. It is then up to the company to employ you. The percentage of not getting the job is more than getting it. The consequences for it are the athlete can go in debt or get bankrupt. That is why athletes should spend time in jail and pay the fine and then return to their career.

  • No. No. No.

    Athletes use the money that they earn in sports to by food, clothing and other things we need to live. If they don't have a job and don't have a backup career, than they have no money and might go bankrupt. That is why athletes should be able to return to sports after serving time in jail and paying fines.

  • They are cool

  • Professional athletes should not be banned for committing felonies.

    If an athlete commits a felony he/she should get in major trouble, YES! However, after they do their punishment, whether it be jail or a fine or probation, they should be allowed to continue their job. A pro athlete uses sports as their source of income and their livelihood. Never under any circumstances should a human being be deprived of the ability to support themselves and their family. Committing the felony does not affect their athletic skill, therefore should not affect whether or not they are allowed to play. They are paid to play sports and what they did has no impact on how good they are at their job.

  • Have they turned their life around?

    I personally know a guy that I did not think was a convicted felon. Turns put he had a pretty rough past when he was 17. Mistakes happened. And he spent time in jail. Half his life later he has designed and build his own house, been involved with community sports club, and had the same job for over a decade. This guy is sepne you would WANT on your team. An actual role model.

  • Should be left up to the sport

    If you apply for a job you are asked if you have been convicted of a felony. It is then up to the company hiring you if you can receive the job or not. This should be true of sports athletes. They should have to tell if they have been and then leave it up to their employer about what to do.
