Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: The Fragility of Athletes

Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: The Fragility of Athletes | Sports Ethics | Scoop.it
Sports Ethics: The Fragility of Athletes. Just a normal jump tangle going for a rebound in a hard fought close game. A Texas A&M player Derrick Roland went up, lost the rebound to Washington's Quincy Pondexter.

Brian Huff's insight:

The injuries associated with team sports are prevalent, but when coaches push their players past their limit is when ethics come in.

A twisted ankle or torn ACL can signal the end of a career for a college or professional athlete.  These athletes will put everything on the line for the love of the game and to be able to play in the play-offs.  Oftentimes, the athlete may be pushed too far, beyond what their body should endure.  This article skirts around the possibility of athlete's pushing themselves too far and possibly compromising their own personal ethics to stay in the game.

Brian Huff's insight:

Outstanding article on the condition of Sports Ethics in college and professional sports. The state of our sports and the number of ethical violations are astounding and effects not only the teams, but the players and the fans.

Discipline in sports has to be the number one priority for not only coaches but also players

Richardson, A. 's curator insight, November 16, 2014 8:10 PM

Nice spin on realizing the "win at all costs" is not the most important thing in regards to teams and individual athletes.  The NFL code of conduct is representative of strides made to ensure the sports professionals return the games to a "respectable profession".  The fans want to see their sports stars on TV for doing good things within the community and not for reprehensible acts.

Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: Keep Your Edge

Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: Keep Your Edge | Sports Ethics | Scoop.it
Sports Ethics: Keep Your Edge. “I lost my edge.” Athletes and professionals mutter this when they struggle with their skills and when they begin to feel their skills eroding or when they feel competitors starting to surpass them.

Via Rudy J. Gonzalez
Brian Huff's insight:

Excellent article on performing on the edge of your abilities. Also, pointing out that while performing on the edge can sometimes push the boundaries of ethics to cheat to get one step ahead of your opponent.

Loved this article!

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

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

Interesting article on how money has changed sports. No longer is it just for the love of the game. How does this affect sports ethics?

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.
