Maybe. It actually does in some cases. They may have to pay fines or if they are released from their current team because of behavior, it may be hard for them to find another one willing to take them. Leading to them having to take less money than originally wanted to gain interest from a team. (Even though the salary they do get is still enormous) So, it already does...
No...sorry but they are not "role models". They are the dreams and goals that people want to achieve. Your role models are the loved ones that get you to those goals. I really don't care what athletes do outside of sports...they are there for our entertainment when they play.
No, I agree with Helix. Sports are fun for us, now they may need to use their big salaries to pay their way out of jams or legal troubles, but that's their business. The more they get in trouble the less spectators will like them too.
Of course it should. If i plaster a guy with my vehicle, i go to jail, which would without a doubt mean that i lose my job. But Ray Lewis gets to flatten a guy and never does a second of jail time. AND he gets to keep playing football. Talk about twisted.
