I'm glad my dad turned out to be my role model. He came home from the post office one day very angry because the guys invited him out for a drink...and the bar was a strip joint. He announced that he was a faithfully married man who didn't believe in ogling other women, and that he was leaving to go home to his wife and kids. Those guys picked on him a lot for junk like that but most of them came to his funeral out of respect, too.
Actually, what point in time were football players ever desirable role models? I'm thinking back to Tommy Kramer and his ?how many? DWIs. It seems like these guys just get more loose and less private with their business every year.
