Highly publicized ethical lapses by sports celebrities have raised questions about morality in athletics. If coaches help their athletes achieve peak physical performance, can they also teach their sports charges to make ethical choices?

Hudson's insight:

Coaches are teachers. Athletes learning and not focused too much on winning and focus on sportsmanship, morals, and developing an open mind is what makes sports great.

Interpreting Sportsmanship

Recently, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers shocked many American football fans with an act that might not seem particularly controversial: they continued playing until the game officially ended.

Via EA, Ben Abair, michael roginski
Hudson's insight:

It is all about how you play the game rather than focusing on winning or losing. Tampa Bay played through the game until it ended while the New York Giants made assumption that they were going to win.

As a coach you always teach players to play until you hear a whistle or the horn blows. The Gaints my think that it was a cheap shot but their coach should have had them prepare for anything. I wonder did they learn from that mistake?

Kelly Joey Seay's curator insight, September 14, 2014 7:42 PM

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.
