    Default Another stupid sports star

    I see in the news of the world they have a video of Ricky Hatton snorting cocaine.What a stupid fool.Another sports man to disgrace himself.He is a legend to alot of people and he has just let himself his family and his fans down.When are these so called role models going to wake up.These days if you do anything wrong you are going to caught.

    I agree with you about how it's much harder to get away with stuff these days, but did Ricky ask to be made into someone's role model? Just because he put in the hard work to rise to the top of his chosen career, and win the acclaim of people - that means he has to be like Jesus or something?

    It's not any celeb's fault if people look up to them - those people need to stop emulating others and look to themselves for inspiration. People let you down, bottom line.

    Nonsense. He's a good boxer. Why does that lead you to assume he has to act like a paragon of virtue in all other areas of life. If you need a 'role-model' you're lacking in some of your critical faculties. Why not demand that he be good at ballroom dancing also, or that he be able to pilot a Boeing 747? It's about as logical.

    If you like him, go watch him box.

    I personally don't see him as role model but there are alot of kids out there that do.I think when you are in the spot light like these sport star you have an obligation to your young fans to be behave in the right mannor.

    Jaysus right if Ricky Hatton is a role model it doesn't say much for society does it .I mean like a skanger from the getto F.F.S . It would wanna be a right dumb-assed kid who looks up to him and anyway them sorta kids r going to end up snorting all on their ownio.

    I was really disappointment to hear this mate, Iím not a massive Hatton fan but I love sports all sports and so when a sports man or women starts taking shit like that I loose all respect for him or her. Messing about behind your womanís back is one thing but drugs thatís another thing. Hope he gets a life time boxing ban.

    I cant believe you just said that!!!lol!

    if he has pulled himself up from an underprivileged background, this makes his sucess even more admirable and therefore
    a huge role model for children with similar backgrounds who can relate to him!if hes from a "skanger" family he would not have had oppurtunities handed to him on a plate that people from more affluent societies would have had.

    ricky hatton is a role model whether he wants to be or not, he chosse this profession and would have know this would be a side effect to his sucess!i know everyone makes mistakes and nobody is perfect but in his situation he cant afford to making seriously stupid mistakes like this, he is glamorising drug use!i hope he is severely reprimanded for his actions so as to send out the message that behaviour like this is not acceptable!

    youd think a sportman above all others would be more heath conscious and be more careful about what he puts into his body!

    Ricky Hatton is retired!!!!!! Banned from what??? Reprimanded by who????

    Even if he wasn't retired he still wouldn't/shouldn't be banned. Boxing has had far worse people than Ricky. Murderers, rapists, pimps, drug dealers, out and out scum bags. Hell we've even seen cannibalism in the ring. Sugar Ray Robinson beat his wife so much that she had a couple of miscarraiges. Jack Dempsey worked as a professional rapist in a brothel as a teenager. If we were to start banning boxers for doing some coke then we would have none left. I heard of some fighter entering the ring absolutly wired. Some went into the ring cold turkey and had a break down during a fight. A lot of these guys come from extreme poverty, so take your middle class morals and shove em!!
