NFL players should be role models not someone people feel ashamed of looking at on the T.V. screen. NFL players should be role models. When I watch football most of the time I see a lot of showboating. Sometimes it 's cool, but other times it just gets annoying. Some people do think that showboating isn 't really that bad unless you get a penalty. Also, parents are getting more concerned about their children getting to sucked in with the taunts and showboating. It is a problem that will never go away.
Last year, over 5,000 athletes had somebody else do their homework, and coaches encouraged it. Colleges generally spend 79 million dollars each year on sports, and even after The Syracuse Scandal and other academic frauds, the funding only continues to grow. Since the colleges pour large funds into the teams, the athletes often are able to cut corners in education. College sports are definitely a terrible investment for universities as they discourage education, drain university funds, and gives athletes unfair advantages over everyone else.
“I wonder how many times a Tom Brady is asked about how handsome he is, or J.J. Watt... it’s something that us female athletes have to deal with all the time,”(Hatch.) quoted by the famous Delle Donne of the WNBA (Women’s National Basketball Association) Chicago Sky. Delle Donne is one of the many female athletes, who endure sexism in sports today. Today in society, people still struggle with the idea of females being involved in sports. Sexism is “ the unfair treatment of people because of their sex; especially : unfair treatment of women” (Sexism.) Many would agree that watching an all female athletic game, is not as entertaining as an all male athletic game. Men believe women are incompetent when it comes to sports talk. During a sports conversation, women tend to get ignored
Most people think that athletes are overpaid and see huge contracts come out every year. It’s not everyday that an athlete wakes up to a 20 million dollar contract. In fact, they actually worked for it over many years of training and dedication.
The amount of children participating in competitive sports has been on a steady decline in the past decade. Between the years of 2008 and 2013, the total number of children participating in competitive sports has dropped by approximately 2.6 million. This is mainly due to the many negative impacts that young athletes face when partaking in these sports. Competitive sports involve sports where competition is encouraged, and where winning is more important than anything else. Competing in these sports causes the children to be vulnerable to many risks and many other negative impacts. Children who participate in competitive sports at a young age experience more serious negative impacts than positives, including a risk of severe injury, losing
Did you know that the highest paid Cubs player will make 19 million dollars, the average pay is 6 million dollars, and the lowest is $417,000. Even the lowest pay is pretty high. Athletes are being paid a ton of money,and it’s getting to be too much. Athletes are overpaid and are very irresponsible and don’t deserve to make what they do.
Pierre Peladeau is a French Canadian man who built a multi-billion dollars media company with $1500 loan from his mother . During his existence on earth, he has accomplished a lot of things such as giving millions to charities and visiting the sick in hospitals. Despite all the good things that Pierre Peladeau has done, I believe the bad actions that he made conquers and overcomes his good deeds. For instance, Pierre Peladeau was engaged in various disputes such as Anti-Semitic comments against the Jewish community, sexist statements towards business women, being a womanizer and an alcoholic. In my opinion Pierre Peladeau is not a good role model for business students.
Professional athletes have a tremendous influence on youth and society, largely because almost everyone looks up to them from toddlers to senior citizens, but in one way or another; everyone is influenced by professional athletes. Some think that athletes should be able to live their lives however they please, not worrying about how their actions may affect other people; however, it is important for athletes to understand that many people are watching them and that their actions do have large impacts on society. Professional athletes’ image affects today’s society and youth because they influence drug use, attitude on and off the field, and contribution to the community.
Baseball is a game that has been played professionally for about 150 years and throughout all these years, thousands of players have taken the field, and billions of dollars have been shelled out to pay these players. Fans have spent even more money just to see these players play in person. Out of all the players to ever play the game only a select few are considered to be the best of all time. The best players in the history of baseball all share certain qualities. The best players have the ability to come through for their team when they are needed the most. The greats have set records and won numerous awards throughout their career, and are very well rounded individuals. For example, great players would
Children have strived for years to make their parents, teachers and coaches proud of them. Kids have come to practice Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday, and Friday to get better, while their academics are suffering. Students have pushed their bodies to the limits, causing extreme injury that will hold them back from sports in the future. Student athletes are not getting the opportunity to play multiple sports during the year, because they are expected to spelize in one sport and focus on it year round, leaving no opportunity to play other sports or do other activities. Youth sports are becoming too intense for young children to keep up with.
Naval Officer Robert Ballard once said, “Follow your own passion- not your parents’ not your teachers’- yours.” In today’s society, what a parent thinks affects what a child thinks. Children often values a parent’s happiness over their own. More than twenty-six million kids play sports around the world starting as young as age six. Forcing a child into doing a sport can damage a child’s well-being, physical-being and can cause them to not have any interest in the sport. Research has shown that children that are forced into sports can be affected negatively in a physically, mentally, and emotionally way due to parent performance expectations.
“In the U.S., about 30 million children and teens participate in some form of organized sports, and more than 3.5 million injuries each year” claims Stanford Children’s Health. It’s definitely true that competitive sports can cause all sorts of injuries from big to small. The media teaches people simply that sports leads to horrific injuries and can cause stress, but what the mainstream media hardly discusses are the great benefits of competitive sports. While there may be some negatives to competitive sports, that’s just life, and to add on to that; there are plenty of benefits which are sure to override to media’s facts. Kids should play competitive sports because competitive sports teach children powerful life lessons, contributes to their social and mental stability, and because of the physical gain competitive sports provides.
Sports in today’s world have gained a lot of importance and there have been a lot of additions to sports in the form of new rules, policies the way it is meant to be played etc. Though many stringent laws are framed, implemented and monitored there are always some sort of issues in the way the sports activities are carried out. Regardless of the level of participation some of the players resort to unethical ways of winning the event.
Socialization is a process of learning and social development. Socialization occurs when we interact with one another and become familiar with the world we live in. Socialization is important to the development of personality. Youth sports can play a crucial role in social interaction such as actively interacting with others, synthesizing information, and making decisions for ourselves. Although sports may apply stress, anxiety, and social pressure on the young athletes, youth sports build and develop character, confidence, and ultimately self-worth.
In this day and age with professional athletes being at the top of the social spectrum, youth sports have gotten very popular. “More than 26 million children ages 6 to 17 played team sports in 2014(Rosenwald).” Youth sports are very popular because it brings the great feeling of being on a team. When you are on a team you feel like you can do anything together, and nothing is stopping you. There are also many flaws in youth sports. In recent years studies have found that some kids have been steering away from sports. Numbers in kids playing sports has gone down nearly 4 percent from 2009, according to a widely cited survey by the Sports and Fitness Industry Association. Total sports played have plummeted by nearly 10 percent. People were curious why this was happening, so studies were conducted to find out. The researchers found out that there have been added pressures by three main sources, parents, coaches, and self pressure. Kids look up to their parents and coaches and would never want to disappoint them. The parents and coaches being the role models they are for the kids, that makes the pressure even more effective. Many kids around the United States have been leaving
