The loss of ethics in sports is becoming more and more prominant in today's world!

Joshua Evans's curator insight, January 17, 2014 11:15 PM

Ethics are a vital part of sports and there is a lack of ethics in some of our players today.

Victoria Molnar's curator insight, March 13, 2014 4:08 PM

This article has some good points about how the game and sports industry has turned into money. I feel this author is just venting about how they are using money and turning players into money hungry athletes. However, it is true some players will not even sign with a team over a couple of million dollars. This is crazy, many people would give their left arm for just one million dollars and here they are complaining that they are not paid enough. It should be about playing the sport because they love it and want to be a good role model not just to make millions and move on with life.

I appreciate this article, it describes me and opened my eyes to what is truly important.  Within the article it says as coaches sometime we loose the insight on the true goals.  A win does not make a winner.  It is o.k to win, and o.k to lose.  -GARY M.

Sara M Hall's curator insight, November 10, 2014 7:57 PM

In his article, Coach Long brings up many good points on how ethics should be in youth sports. In his article he doesn't go to say winning is bad, but the way winning is glorified and taught is wrong. Long also points out how playing a game with no score does not make sense either, playing and teaching youth sports is a way to find a balance between winning, having fun, and teaching young athletes about sports in a healthy way. Allowing students to grow and learn life lessons through sports, and most importantly allowing them to learn to have fun. I really think Long did a fantastic job at helping coaches of young athletes get back to the basic ethics and good morals of what youth sports should be about.

Jayme Dannen-Deal's curator insight, April 16, 11:01 PM

This is a great article - as coaches we need to remember that we are role models and there are so many more important things that just winning.
