This article was simple and to the point and spot on.  It demonstrates the important role sports plays in teh moral development of children and the impact coaches and parents have in that arena.

Ever meet a youth sports coach with some ethics challenges?

This article speaks about the importance of being ethical whether you are a coach, player, and/or parent.  Coaches and parents has a responsibility to set the tone when it comes to teaching ethics in sports.

Performance Enhancing Drugs in Professional Cycling

In the fall of 2012, the United States Anti Doping Agency brought a case against Lance Armstrong, 7 time Tour de France winner. These are the details of everything that went down.

Jenny Sanchez Liermann's insight:

"The crux of the case is provisions in the contract between the USPS and Tailwind making it clear that doping was strictly prohibited and to be disciplined immediately. “Zero tolerance” is the precise phrase. In short, the sponsorship was contingent on the team racing clean."

 

"...as a cancer survivor, invincible athlete, and eventually, Sheryl Crow’s boyfriend and celebrity philanthropist. Arguably, Armstrong did more to enhance the U.S. Postal brand while he was cheating than he’s done to harm it since confessing."  Interesting take on the topic.

Jenny Sanchez Liermann's insight:

This article I like!  I like it brought back the idea of sportsmanship, the honor with which atheletes  held for each other.  The wishing of good luck, the knowing that fate knows no color, does not desccriminate nor do the gods of injury!

Buena Suerte!

Pablo Nunez's curator insight, November 17, 2013 2:47 PM

Very well written article on the tradition of wishing opponents good luck and the understanding of an underlying respect for sport, each opponents commitment, and good sportsmanship.

Joshua Evans's curator insight, January 17, 2014 11:18 PM

Players need to have more sportsmanship because as much as players get traded, the player you just hurt could be your teammate next year. Respect is a big part of the game.
