Wendy R's insight:

"Laughable?" a bit derogatory isn't it?  How about something along the lines of, "We are unclear as to where these allegations came from, we don't coach in the manner he described, but we are eager to get to the bottom of this as fast and as civilized as possible."

I hope more athletes will be encouraged to take a stand against unethical behavior be it from a staff member or teammate.

Ethics Sometimes Missing From Some Athletes

Top athletes often are held to high standards, both on and off the field. So when they are accused of cheating or using performance enhancing drugs, or simpl...
Wendy R's insight:

I don't agree with the title of this media clip. I think it should read, "Ethics sometimes get lost along the way." Because as the video states, ethics are taught at a young age, however the pressures from media, coaches, parents or one's own desire to be number one can result in  losing sight of what is right and wrong, It is not that the ethics are missing, they just got overshadowed by the desire to be the best and not disappoint. Thoughts?

Wendy R's insight:

Although not related to girls basketball, this video is a must see. This coach exemplifies what all coaches should possess; true passion for the sport and undeniable dedication and caring for his players. I was in tears at the end. As far as ethics? The opposing team player in the video has still got his in tack, he was raised right. I applaud him for doing what he did.

Sports Ethics? | At the Threshold

There is an American sports ethic, but what is it? When I was a boy, we played football and baseball and basketball and every sport you can think of, including sports games we made up. One thing for sure: on the playgrounds ...
Wendy R's insight:

What would be the effect on American ethics if in fact each player did call their own fouls? Who would step up to the plate and admit their wrongs? How would that affect the roles of coaches and also media coverage as we see it today?
