Do you expect athletes to be fairly tough when it comes to all injuries? Or are there certain exceptions?

Well yea we expect you to be tough cause you guys go through so much training and whatnot, but we understand that you're not invincible and that you are human. So if you get injured, seriously, like break your leg or arm, then we understand if you show a little weakness cause that shit hurts.0

They need know the difference between pain from working out vs pain from real injuries. Ignoring pain from injuries is stupid. The idea of "shake it off" and "no pain no gain" sends the wrong message because too many people make real injuries worse by doing that.
So no, athletes should NOT ignore injuries. When they get to be older and all those injuries come back at them, they'll wish they took better care of themselves when they were younger. There's a time to keep going, and a time to back off. You gotta know the difference.0
Few comments. Generally speaking, athletes are tougher than the average person.
To all the people that make fun of Lebron and other hateable athletes for being in pain for cramps, have y'all ever had a severe cramp? (Ladies, shut up :p)
That shit will bring any man to the ground.0
The bigger the muscle, the more it hurts when you pull it.0
