Victoria Molnar's insight:

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.

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.

Lisa Kirk's curator insight, May 15, 2015 12:10 AM

I really enjoyed reading this article regarding ethics in athletes. Players are acting like children when they are supposed to be role models and professional leaders in an organization.  This article encompasses several situations where it involves baseball players spitting on each other, football owners building the biggest stadiums and players robbing banks. Where are their ethics and morals for the future athletes to emulate?  


My sister's friend met their classmate, who was a professional baseball player, at a professional baseball game.  After the game, there was a meet and greet for the fans.  His friends screamed out his name and he  ignored them as he continued to sign on the merchandise and walked away.  They never had a chance to talk to him and he never gave them the time or day.  Some may say, maybe he didn't remember them? When you start screaming out your High School team and friend's names, you never forget.

Victoria Molnar's insight:

This is a great video just to show that therapy does help people. People who attend therapy or even know someone who has had therapy show their appreciation and feel they would never be where they are without it. Some people need that help to heal injuries and phyical therapists play a major role in helping people in the right way.

Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: Power Through

Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: Power Through | Sports Ethics: Molnar, V. | Scoop.it
power through, sports ethics, Nietzsche and athletics, overcome adversity athletes.
Victoria Molnar's insight:

This article has some good points about powering through. It doesn't mean specific powering through it is for many situations. Basically being loyal and playing or doing things with integrity even when the plan is not going the right way. Never giving up and having the ability to make the right decisions and come out on top. Many people rely on help from team mates and coaches to teach them how to get through situations and they can base that off of their ethical and moral beliefs to find a solution.

This video talks about how we have to teach the young kids what is right and wrong from the beginning. If we do not who is going to teach them when we are gone.

Victoria Molnar's insight:

This is my FAVORITE video!!!

This shows both the angel and demons on your shoulder when faced with difficult decisions in a professional ethical situation. All cases end up chosing the correct action because their personal ethics were tried which could affect their paychecks. Most people would chose not to affect their income, however, here they chose the correct action and confront their boses. It proves that personal and professional ethics always overlap.

John Wooden: the difference between winning and succeeding

http://www.ted.com With profound simplicity, Coach John Wooden redefines success and urges us all to pursue the best in ourselves. In this inspiring talk he ...

Via Joshua Hansen, jonathan mckenzie
Victoria Molnar's insight:

I have really come to admire Coach John Wooden. I didn't even know about him until this class, and he taught in my home town (South Bend, IN). Here he is talking about the score and win or loss is not what is important in the game it is about doing the best you can do. I feel many kids lose this insite during the game and after the game and the win is not what is important and that is not what is going to make you better in everyday life.

MARSIELLE FOSTER's curator insight, May 18, 2014 6:58 PM

The" Wooding" definition of Success breeds winning in more areas the sports. With high moral standards and ethical practices he makes success about the dedication of doing your best instead of winning at all cost. 

Dillon Fury's curator insight, September 10, 2014 12:47 PM

Winning the game is not everything. Being successful is not defined by who won the game either.

Jasmine Szemenyei's curator insight, April 13, 2015 10:41 AM

I love Coach Wooden!

Victoria Molnar's insight:

This article shows how money does change people in the world of sports. Athletes used to just be happy to play the game and now they will do whatever it takes to get paid more and make that money. I like the example of Ali. He was retired and out of shape yet offered a new fight and he accepted based on the money offer. It just shows that money can make up peoples minds even if their personal ethics are based on good moral intentions.

Victoria Molnar's insight:

This is a great advantage in the career of physical therapy. Being able to move around and run under your own professional and personal ethics. If a physical therapist is certified and well recommended they have the ability to utilize that and travel for their career. This way choosing and treating patients in their own way and choosing an ethical decision on how to help them based on their own morals and ethics.

Victoria Molnar's insight:

This is an interesting article about concussions in contact sports and is it an ethical decision for parents to push their children into contact sports. It is proven that concussions have side effects down the road and parents need to think long and hard and determine when it is worth pushing them into the sport or pulling them out of the sport if they get concussions.

Victoria Molnar's insight:

This video is about teaching personal ethics from the beginning. Some ethics are lost along the way and if they are not taught personal ethics it can impact their lives in the future. Some athletes lose ethics on during the game and it is important to teach them at the very start in their lives otherwise they may have a rough road later in their careers. Even talks about professionals being stripped of medals from steroid use and non-professional ethics of doing what is wrong for the game.
