Scott Weiland and Ryan Braun are two famous personalities of the nation while the first one is a notable rock singer and the later is a renowned baseball player. However, they both have some similarities. Both of them are performer and also sacked from their career being alleged of drug intake.
It is noticed that the crime they have committed by consuming drugs, snatched their heroism and turned them villain in the eyes of the common people. However, it is noticed that Scott is a little fortunate in this case than Braun as Scott is allowed to perform on the stage while Braun is completely disregarded by people.
The reason behind this is quite clear. Although both of them are entertainer, general people accepted the fact of taking drugs of the rock star as in America it is quite a common incident. It is interesting to notice that their tales of corruption quench the thirst of celebrity gossip of the media as well as common people. The gossip along with their music entertains the public.
Throughout the year, Scott remains busy in stage show and entertains numerous people across the country by singing his iconic song of the former band but obviously with a new group. He is accepted and allowed to earn money by plying his craft.
However, the outfielder of Milwaukee Brewers, Ryan Braun is not as lucky as Scott Weiland. The main reason behind this is the American society cannot accept this bribery of the role models. It is worth to mention that in case the players lack the required skills and determination to achieve success they became prone to drugs that are more effective in acquire success more easily than regular practice, dedication and passion.
The view of traditional American society becomes clear from the amount of money paid to a baseball player every year. It is evident that in most of the cases average salary of a baseball player is around $3,440,000. In this context, mention must be made of the income of the rock stars who usually bank million of dollars for singing songs. Moreover, they also have strong fan following who are so obsessed with the songs of the rock stars that they do not think twice to name their kids after them.
It is notable that most of the companies offer sponsorship to the baseball team as well as the rock bands are drug companies like pharmaceuticals and alcohol companies. Here lie the most striking points. When Americans are thriving for perseverance and equality, why two persons after committing the same offense do not face the same fate/? In case, the society really wants a drugs free environment, it is important to punish all the offenders equally.
However, this task is bit impossible. After banishing, a baseball super model or a rock star for drug allegations, new players or rock stars replace them, some of whom also alleged for the same offense. In this way, the tradition of game, rock bands and drugs is going on. Self-consciousness is needed to stop this problem.
