Fame to Infamy

This chapter discusses how athletes are expected to be a role model to all. It explains that athletes are somehow duty bound to conform to the moral standards set by society by becoming dedicated stewards of the trust and faith fans place in them. When athletes fail to comply with those moral standards, fans and society will take such transgressions seriously and, in some cases, personally.

Keywords:   moral standards, athletes, fans, role model, trust, faith
