Should we broadcast sports stars public lives?

Professional sports players are no longer just in the spotlight for their talent and hard work. With the rise of the celebrity phenomenon, sports stars now have their public lives broadcast and judged by the media almost daily. Do you think that it is fair that these sports stars now have to consider their positions as role models when all they wanted to do was play sport professionally?

    No i do not agree if they publish everything about them. They some time for themselves. They already do so much for our Country.

    As much as they don't necessarily plan to be role models when they become elite athletes, in our society they are seen to beunfortunately. It is because we put so much emphasis on sporting prowess mote than academic or vocational talents.

    They are viewed as role models & so must live up to the standard; the highest noble standards they are capable of. Others do, so all should live up to the standard, if not exceed it. There should be dire consequences for publishing false reports. Drugs & alcohol must be banned from sports & sportspeople in their lives at all times. Gambling should be penalised & socially frowned upon. There should be more focus on participation; less upon winning. I long for the days when INDEPENDENT media are pre-occupied with reporting on the latest government infrastructure building projects & their progress instead of the rot & filth that has plagued OWNED media for a generation or two.

    The media and others need to calm down. The players need some privacy. Non players and non celebrities get privacy so why cant them.
