Buena Suerte!

Pablo Nunez's curator insight, November 17, 2013 2:47 PM

Very well written article on the tradition of wishing opponents good luck and the understanding of an underlying respect for sport, each opponents commitment, and good sportsmanship.

Joshua Evans's curator insight, January 17, 2014 11:18 PM

Players need to have more sportsmanship because as much as players get traded, the player you just hurt could be your teammate next year. Respect is a big part of the game.

Brian Candage's curator insight, May 16, 2014 9:16 PM

This article makes a great point for coaches. If mistakes were made and they were your fault, own up to them. If they were a specific players fault, put the blame on yourself and the team. There is no need to call one player out, I'm sure he/she knows exactly what they did wrong. Bring the issue up to the entire team at the next practice, make the whole team practice what went wrong, but emphasize the correct way to accomplish it. 

James Mackay's curator insight, February 18, 2015 10:19 PM

This was an interesting take on the importance of taking and assigning responsibility in the interest of developing an organization's strong ethical foundation.  A little flippant, but still worth reading.
