Good sports: Coaches help athletes be more ethical, study suggests

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?

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.

9, including coaches, busted for illegal sports gambling on Florida pro, college and youth football games | Sports Ethics: Butler, T. | Scoop.it

Nine people were arrested in an operation into illegal gambling on professional and college sports and youth football games in Broward County, the sheriff’s office said Tuesday.

 

The sheriff’s office said that the 18-month investigation called “Operation Dirty Play,” showed that coaches, team affiliates and the president of the South Florida Youth Football League were regularly betting on games.

 

Two businesses, which served as gambling houses, were searched on Monday, the sheriff’s office said. Authorities said illegal bets were made at Showtime Sports and Apparel at 3685 N.W. 19th Street in Lauderdale Lakes and Red Carpet Kutz Barbershop at 1835 N.W. 38th Avenue in Lauderhill.

 

They were charged with felony bookmaking and some of them were charged with keeping a gambling house, the sheriff's office said...

In the opinion of many, gambling in sports should not be allowed. It takes away from the integrity of the game and the overal reason of enjoyment and love of the game.

Jade Nicole Burman's curator insight, October 1, 2014 11:24 AM

This is so unethical. Enough said.

You see this all too much in youth football, especially in the football hotbeds.  It's a shame.

Wow!  What a seriously ethical dilemma.  I can see both coaches point of views.  I also have to ask the question, why should one coach make a decision that forces the other coach into a corner?  This could have been a great learning experience for both teams, but that choice should not have been forced on another.

There should never be a time when words result in violence.  The children should not be subjected to this.  Where are the ethics when hiring the coaches for this team?  If this was the first issue with the law, then I may look at it as a loss of temper. This wasn't the situation, this man had been previously involved with the law and should not have been on that field coaching impressionable children.

Ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky receives 30-60 year sentence for child sex abuse

Ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky receives 30-60 year sentence for child sex abuse | Sports Ethics: Butler, T. | Scoop.it

Via CBS News:

 

BELLEFONTE, PA. -- Jerry Sandusky was sentenced Tuesday to at least 30 years in prison — effectively a life sentence — in the child sexual abuse scandal that brought shame to Penn State and led to coach Joe Paterno's downfall.

 

Judge John Cleland sentenced him to 30 year minimum to 60 years maximum in prison. Under Pennsylvania law, Sandusky cannot be released on parole before the minimum term is up.

 

A defiant Sandusky gave a long, rambling statement in which he denied the allegations and talked about his life in prison and the pain of being away from his family.

 

The 68-year-old former Penn State assistant coach was found guilty in June of 45 counts of child sexual abuse, convicted of molesting 10 boys over a 15-year period. Witnesses said Sandusky used the charitable organization he founded for troubled children as his personal hunting ground to find and groom boys to become his victims.

 

His arrest 11 months ago, and the details that came out during his trial over the summer, transformed Sandusky's public image from a college coach who had been widely admired for his work with The Second Mile charity into that of a reviled pervert who preyed on the very youngsters who sought his help.

 

Eight of the boys he was found guilty of molesting testified at his trial, describing a range of abuse that included fondling, oral sex and anal intercourse. One of the prosecution's star witnesses, former graduate assistant Mike McQueary, testified that he saw Sandusky raping a boy in a locker room shower.

 

At today's sentencing hearing a victim impact statement from Victim #1 was read: "I have tried to think of the words that would describe how Jerry Sandusky has impacted my life. It all began with Jerry Sandusky building my trust over a long period of time. Then came the ultimate betrayal. My psychologist describes it as PTSD - I describe it as emotional agony. To the end Jerry Sandusky wanted to manipulate and abuse each of the victims. No remorse, only evil..."

This has to be one of the most worst cases in history. You were looked upon as a role model but you took innocence from children.

Michael 's curator insight, November 21, 2014 11:08 AM

In the previous article i scooped i said that 'it can happen to anybody any age" this article proves it this coach was abusing 15 year old teens and this shows that no matter what the age you can get abused.
