Should Athletes who behave badly in their private lives be punished professionally?
I think they should if the sport they play trains them to get their strength, like in the NFL were they train people to be in the team. Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson should be punished highly for what they did, Ray Rice knocked out his wife in an elevator and Adrian Peterson whipped his child with a stick. Even if these things had nothing to do with NFL, NFL still had a contribution on it, I’m not saying that it’s the NFL’s fault I’m saying that the NFL trained Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson to get strength and both of them abused it. I know you can’t take someone’s strength away but you can take their job away, personally I would have kicked them out for this because the NFL gave them the strength they have now and they are abusing it.
I know people would be mad if the NFL kicked them out but it would give a message to the 2 players: Don’t abuse your powers or it will have professional consequences especially if you were trained to have that strength.
This is what my fellow students have told me while we were in the cafeteria. Paul’s idea on if they should be punished was if Ray and Adrian get mad they might beat up another NFL player. Roxy thinks the police should choose if they continue playing in the NFL. I am for Paul’s idea because it is basically my idea and I am not for Roxy’s idea because the police is not in charge of NFL they should only punish for the crime they did.
But the bigger question is would be punishing professionally if they are violent for a non-sport job. So to know we need a scenario. Ok, let’s say you are a cashier, if you were a cashier and you were violent, you would be fired, which is obvious since a cashier is with people all the time. Another scenario is a chef; this would also be professionally punished because they could spit in the people’s food. So my personal answers are they should be professionally punished and probably take anger management.
Personally I have a small clue on to why kids bully but I am clueless when it comes to adult bullying! I’m not saying I don’t understand it but why do adults need to bring the bullying? But I do know why NFL players bully and it is completely their fault, what I’m trying to say is that if NFL players don’t take care of their strength they get and “take a chill pill” after playing these types of things will happen! It’s technically like me! Since I have ADHD I have to take a pill for it (some weird name for the pill) every morning! But with that one out of the way I think that I’ve made a pretty good point!
Beatrice said they shouldn’t be punished professionally because if someone who wasn’t famous did it they would not be punished professionally.
In conclusion I still think that Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson should be punished professionally because after talking with the others I still thought that Ray and Adrian were abusing their strength!!!
