Sports: Do we focus on the negative too much?

October 17, 2006 at 6:16 pm Leave a comment

Bob Kravitz was the subject of many conversations this last weekend.  Bob was on the radio yesterday morning (Bob and Tom Show again), and as surprising as this might sound to some, since Bob is such a controversial sports writer in many peoples opinion…back to the subject at hand – Bob brought up a good point.  Why do we spend so much time focusing on the negative athletes.  He agreed that all the negative things that happen in sports (Artest, T.O., Randy Moss, S. Jackson, and many others) tend to get more focus by not only him, but even the national sports shows too, like ESPN.  Here is the question he asked – why don’t we see Marvin Harrison on the cover of any magazines, profiled as a good example, a great athlete, and the kind of guy you’d want in any locker room.  If we spent more time emphasizing the positive, does anyone think more athletes would step up and become better role models – or are they too highly paid and too self absorbed to give a damn?

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
