Many athletes try not to take ownership of their actions. They will try to blame others or say they didnt' do it. They also try to pay to cover up anything they have done wrong. This is not a good way to show a positive Sports Ethics.

A rare site in sports. When you think golf, you don't think just men like you might if you think of NASCAR or maybe Rugby, however, there is one place that is sticking to its guns and only allowing men on its 'hallowed' ground.

nikofenton's comment, March 11, 2014 5:53 PM
i feel this is a clear example of ethical behaviour by the media, the nfl, the public and their understanding and respect. Clearly now that he has come out he has hoped that he will just be known as Michael Sam the football player but unfortunately for him that wont happen for not only is he a openly gay football player but the first in history. This is still a very good ethical example for he will still be given the chance to be drafted because he is a good football player and just that, and the respect and fairness shown by both the nfl and the media shows how he is currently known as "the gay football player" but that wont effect how they see him as a player.
Jarad Ashburner's comment, March 11, 2014 5:58 PM
yes a agree with niko comment this was a very clear example as ethical behavior by the media and his fans. <br>his fans a very happy that he came out with his sexuality and they are very supportive of him being the first gay foot ball player ever.

Damian Lenoel's curator insight, February 9, 2015 5:19 AM

I can definitely say that violence has always been a part of human life throughout the ages. It(Sports) has always been about authority, and dominance, that is hardly going to change. Playing contact sports always gets people fired up (Players included) and there is always going to be violence demonstrated through sport. For some people, contact sports can be a stress reliever, letting them take out their anger on other people in a more controlled way than fighting on the streets. I think society needs to stop worrying about violence in sports. Yeah sure it leaves an impression on our growing generation, but shouldn't they(The children of society) be taught by their parents or caregivers what is right, and what is wrong?

Hansen makes some great points around who is 'accepted' by mainstream society into the NFL through the draft system. His comment 'you sleep with another man, well now you've gone too far' really brings a great light to how ridiculous some peoples thoughts towards this are.
Becca Mower's comment, March 11, 2014 2:14 AM
This video clip was good at highlighting what is socially accepted in the sporting world. It goes on to talk about how some players in the NFL have criminal records for drunk driving, assault, family violence and even rape, yet they are considered 'normal' players as opposed to Michael Sam who is considered 'abnormal' because of his sexuality. It shows that homosexual people are not welcome in the sporting world by a lot of people. This is considered an ethical issue because it touches on what is morally accepted in today's society.

Paige Stanners's comment, March 10, 2014 8:10 PM
I think it's true that money has spoiled sports. It seems that the more money a sport gains, the more the players stray from the core values and more likely they are to cheat and use drugs. It's becoming more and more about the money instead of playing for the love of a sport and this upsets me. it shouldn't be about the money at all.
Tyler Owen's comment, March 12, 2014 4:03 AM
I believe that you play the sport for the love of it and if you get paid doing it its just a bonus, and once the players start earning more and more they get greedy and then cheating comes into play. Money is ruining sport when it should be making it better
Brendan larsen's comment, February 8, 2015 10:28 PM
I think that money has had an impact on ethics in sport because players are leaving behind the love of a club for the money that other big clubs have. This is making certain teams almost impossible to compete against just because the clubs owner is extremely wealthy. Players are now more greedy than ever, going after clubs that might not necessarily benefit them but have the most money. Also the fact that they're not worried about the fines they receive for on and off field wrongs because they have so much money so they've not receiving much of a punishment.

i think jack burkmans proposal for this new bill is ridiculous . this bill will never happen and evident by the huge support Micheal has gotten (who the bill was directed at). "We are losing our decency as a nation" for a man who believes prostitution is ok but not gay sports players and he says a comment like that he is truly pathetic. i think a man like jack burkman wont be able to stop this vehicle for change
Tyler Owen's comment, March 12, 2014 3:58 AM
I think jack is barking up the wrong tree, is this how he would like to be treated if he was gay?, this bill will never go through because people care about people and sam is just another person who wants to be treated the same and respected
