Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : April 15th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, April 16, 2009 11 OPINION STREETVIEW Booze, biff and sport stars Ted Kay Susan Davidson Robyn Wolfendale Marija Castellari Don Ashton After the recent decision to drop Nick D'Arcy from the World Swimming Championships team, the Inner-West Weekly asked residents what they thought about violence and alcohol amongst sports people. Marija Castellari, Rodd Point ''I think they should be role models; they should be responsible. If they are represent- ing Australia, they should be professional, as young people look up to them. There is a balance between celebrating and getting out of hand. Prohibition will just make it go underground as they are going to drink anyway. They just need responsible use.'' Susan Davidson, Five Dock ''We tend to put our sports people on a pedestal, but if they break the law they should be like anyone else. Not back on the pedestal. I feel sorry for him though, as he is only a young fella and maybe he does deserve another chance.'' Robyn Wolfendale, Abbotsford ''They just do not go together. They earn far too much money and have too much time. Now it's getting so bad, every time you turn on the TV, it's about sports people -- saying 'Hey, let's go out and party'. It's a very hard line, but they should know, same as any of us -- you just can't do it. It's not just one body, swimming, they all need to be pulled into line. Big attitude change.'' Ted Kay, Five Dock ''It's all part and parcel of it. It is low they dropped him from the team. He did what he did, you've got to give him a chance. Look what happened to Jobie the cyclist, he went the wrong way. He (D'Arcy) deserves another chance. It's unfortunate Australia has the tall poppy syndrome working well for it.'' Don Ashton, Russell Lea ''It seems to be getting to be a big problem for just one incident. He was kicked off before and suffered the first time. I can't see why it should be continued for him.''
