False idols

Have your say

Angela Innes (Letters, 8 January) repeats the assertion that footballers are role models to thousands of young boys. This is bunkum.

Footballers, like pop stars, 
actors etc are idols – an idol is not a role model.

Any parent suggesting to their child that professional footballers should be their role model needs to have a word with themselves.
