We read about thuggery like Ron Mexico, Jr., Sean Taylor, etc. etc. etc. We also discuss the ostentatious endzone celebrations, self promotion, etc. so prevelant in the NFL.


All of us frown upon the thuggery. However, there are varying degrees of tolerance/acceptance of other "activites not directly related to the competition" that we see in sports. The moralists believe that athletes are role models (see option #3) and therefore, the thuggery and showboating is totally unacceptable. Others think sports are just entertainment so anything goes.


For the purposes of this poll, I ask that you choose one of the three options, not a combination of two or more. The poll involves all sports, amateur and pro, common and esoteric, as a participant and spectator.
