Footballers seem to do it more often and are caught doing something unsavoury perhaps its there are more of them than cricketers in the publc eye. Sailors can be raucous but tend to be better educated and have better taste than professional sports people. Having seen the finish of the sailing in Hobart the sailors are fun to be around. Have to add age as well footballers are youngest then cricket then sailors

I would ay because they are a group of low IQ people. The Labor voting type

It's got more to do with salacious tabloid media attention than anything else, an easy target, if you will. The footballers are just a large and visible group, the cricketers a very small group, and the sailors, we only hear of once a year, no one hears of what the sailors get up to in their personal lives. The percentage of misbehaviour would be very similar across all.

Sheila, maybe it's because the media, paints them (footballers), in a different light to Cricketers and Sailors. Footballers a pictured as no pain brut strength.

I have to agree with K on this,I think you are way off the mark.Cricketers on the whole have never been known as drunken louts,in fact the one or two occasions one has strayed off the beaten path it has been well publicised so unusual is it.Footballer(all codes) on the other hand, just can't help themselves,they are continually in the news for bad behaviour,and believe me the bad publicity is well deserved.I think you must have blinkers on Sheila because AFL players are among the worst offenders.
