This is a major reason I feel that ethics has went down hill due to the importance of making more money. 

Richardson, A. 's curator insight, November 16, 2014 9:06 PM

Money and epic salary and endorsement deals certainly has not enhanced and increased ethics in sports.  With millions of dollars to be earned or lost due to wins, contracts and endorsement money, athletes are playing for much more than the love of the game.  In the words of Jerry Maguire, "show me the money."

Mike Falvo's curator insight, January 19, 2015 4:29 AM

I don't think it has COMPLETELY ruined ethics in sports, but it is definitely a driving force in the decisions made on and off the "field" of sport.

michelle shakir's curator insight, July 17, 10:10 PM

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.

Loved this article!

Michael Walsh's curator insight, October 19, 2014 9:46 AM

Great look at athletes struggling with the fact that they cant always be the best and how coaches have got them through those struggles.

Mike Falvo's curator insight, January 19, 2015 4:47 AM

If someone feels like they're losing their ethical edge, it then comes time to metaphorically step back and reevaluate.

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.

The Right Stuff?

The Right Stuff? | Sports Ethics: Wetzel, J. | Scoop.it
If you're like many runners, you've spent the last few months training for a big race. And as your 5-K, half-marathon, or marathon approaches, you're probably taking extra care with what you eat and drink.
Jaimie Wetzel's insight:

I really liked this article because there are so many myths about what you should do prior to a sporting event. This explains what you should and should not do!
