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.

  • Yes, they should.

    Why? Because, as someone said before, and this is extremely important actually, they are role models ( emphasis on 'role models' ) towards people who could think wrongly because of what they are doing, therefore having a negative impact on everything ( towards their fans ) and so on. No?

  • Yes they should be

    Here are the main points:
    1. Athletes are role models for the youth and they look up to them for behavior so if they are allowed to play sports it appears as if they have been pardoned and doesn’t send a good message to the youth and society.
    2. When athletes represent a country it shows the country in a bad light if they have a criminal record.
    3. If they know that they will be allowed to play sports in spite of doing crimes it will make it easier for them to cheat and get away.
    4. If they know, that they’ll be let off the hook, they could take easy advantage and commit the largest and most destructive and corrupt crimes and get away with it. Just because they are an athlete. Why is there special treatment for athletes?
    5. If athletes were to commit a crime then it would also affect the other athletes. For example, in a school, if all the cool kids were buying skateboards, then the other kids are affected by that and also want to buy skateboards so that they are also cool. Similarly, in this context, if the top and most famous athletes do common crimes like drug-dealing, robbery, etc, then all other athletes will follow suit. And not just athletes. People can be easily affected by this kind of an act. The average person could think that if a famous athlete can get away with crime, then why can’t he/she? Athletes are role models and people who are aspire to be athletes will see what methods they use
    6. Athletes should be banned from their sort because they broke the law. They already make a lot of money a year at least and can easily support themselves and their family.
    7. Suppose an athlete commits a crime, and suppose the police finds out that the crime has happened. That is the common occurrence. The guilt and the feeling that you have just done something wrong, will affect the performance of the athlete. ANd suppose that its a team sport. Then, if one player’s performance is bad, the other players also slowly weaken due to the one player that committed a crime.

  • Should athletes be banned after commiting a crime?

    I say yes because they broke the law and they should be puished for something that they knew was braking the law. Its the same thing as knowing what to do and doin the total opposite thing. So my point of view on this is yes they should be banned.

  • 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.

  • Hell phucken yeah

    Chur brutha and the a guy with who you are is the most important thing part of the game and your pretty cool kid with the same story as about you guys who were you in the same way position to be your father and you father your father and brother are

  • 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

  • Would you like to be banned from something you love and probably your only source of income.

    I understand that they have committed some messed up stuff but they love what they do and that is probably their only source of income. It also depends on what felonies you have committed, if you pull a Mike Vick or a Josh Brown or even what Ezekiel Elliot was convicted of (but found not guilty) and then maybe you can be banned.

  • Because that might be their only way of making money so the athletes have to keep their job or else they might not make it.

    The athletes have only one job in their life, so if they blow by committing a crime, they might not get a second chance on their life's work. These athletes have committed their whole life to this one sport and they might die if they do not make the monye that is needed.

  • 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.
