Gregg Popovich, Spurs To Face Sanctions For Benching Stars | SportsGrid

Gregg Popovich, Spurs To Face Sanctions For Benching Stars | SportsGrid | Sports Ethics: Palmer-Scott, P. Coaching Dilemmas. | Scoop.it
Gregg Popovich, coaching mastermind that he is, went over his schedule at the beginning of the season and determined games in which he would bench some of his aging stars.
Patrick Palmer-Scott's insight:

Coach Popovich set the example in how to make a tough ethical decision with his actions regarding his "star players" and was punished by the league. Not a good example to set for those attempting to become better coaches, and actually care about the members of his team.

Emphasis in Sports � What�s Best for Your Child

Patrick Palmer-Scott's insight:

Excellent points throughout the article. The one area in which one should focus on is in the Potential Solutions section, annotating what sports in school should be like. This could be said about collegiate and professional sports; however, there is only one level in which the players receive payment to play. That is the only level in which this should be completely acceptable and it is up to coaches on every level to have the ethical courage to ensure the players improve and have playing time.

Throw away the selfishness... ...and let the beauty of helping others comes into our hearts. Be a blessing! Video grabbed from: http://www.youtube.com/Global...
Patrick Palmer-Scott's insight:

This is a great example of how a coach influences their players, not only on the field, but their morals and ethics. I can only imagine how easy it could have been to not help her around the bases because of the importance of the win. The team lost anyway, but the story is more important.

Patrick Palmer-Scott's insight:

It is appropriate one of the most violent sports across the globe has a code of ethics. There are many unwritten rules in many sports, but something like ethics must be taken into account for any organization.

Work ethic plays role in Shafer's decision to reshuffle wide receiver corps

Work ethic plays role in Shafer's decision to reshuffle wide receiver corps | Sports Ethics: Palmer-Scott, P. Coaching Dilemmas. | Scoop.it
The shape of Syracuse's wide receiver corps took on a new look against Wake Forest. Jeremiah Kobena's role was nonexistent. Brisly Estime's role was expanded.…
Patrick Palmer-Scott's insight:

All coaches face the dillema of who to start each individual game. It is imperative other coaches instill this level of competition within their players to identify who deserves to play, rather than play those who feel entitled to a starting position.

Benched

Benched | Sports Ethics: Palmer-Scott, P. Coaching Dilemmas. | Scoop.it
Patrick Palmer-Scott's insight:

"My job as a coach is to put players into situations where they can be successful," says one Pee Wee A-level hockey coach. "The player with the skills might not like the pressure of being in a big game. If a coach uses one player for one kind of play and another for something else, that may not be benching-that's coaching."


This is one of the most useful quotes I have read in a long time. This will be incorporated into my current coaching position.

Get Up and Play: How the Ethics of Players Faking Injury Is Killing the Game

Soccer is beyond question my favorite sport in the world. It is brilliant in so many ways, yet almost at its very best with its simplicity. I can watch almost anyone play as long as the quality is there...
Patrick Palmer-Scott's insight:

"Who is to blame? Hard to say. There seems to me enough blame to go around. Players, coaches, associations, fans—even the media. However, the primary blame, for me at any rate, has to fall with the referees."


This type of action is frequently seen in other sports, namely American football. The National Football League is beginning to punish players for this activity, and I believe it will not be long before soccer does the same. Again, it comes back to how is faking, or lying about an injury morally or ethically correct?

LeBrun: Fighting debate is on, like it or not

LeBrun: Fighting debate is on, like it or not | Sports Ethics: Palmer-Scott, P. Coaching Dilemmas. | Scoop.it
Fighting isn't likely to be eliminated from the NHL, but like it or not, the debate and opinions continue to evolve, Pierre LeBrun writes.
Patrick Palmer-Scott's insight:

We teach our children fighting is bad, and yet this sport glorifies it as much as boxing or kickboxing. This sends a mixed signals to kids growing up. Coaches, especially at the younger age levels need to limit the amount of confrontation and fighting occurs in order to prevent the connotation that fighting is morally correct. Fighting may be warranted in real life; however, there are not many cultures whose society accepts the violence at a young age.

MLB Suspends Outfielder 50 Games

MLB Suspends Outfielder 50 Games | Sports Ethics: Palmer-Scott, P. Coaching Dilemmas. | Scoop.it
NEW YORK — Outfielder Marlon Byrd was suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball on Monday after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.
Patrick Palmer-Scott's insight:

This type of action has been occurring for decades; however, the rules have changed and the players should understand the consequences. I applaud the leadership of professional baseball and the consequences. There have been too many players associated with this activity since Major League Baseball really began investigating these actions, and the players should be held accountable. Winning and receiving a paycheck is not worth it.

Larry Bird beat J.R. Smith to shoelace stunt

Larry Bird beat J.R. Smith to shoelace stunt | Sports Ethics: Palmer-Scott, P. Coaching Dilemmas. | Scoop.it
J.R. Smith was put through the ringer last week for untying Dwight Howard’s shoe, untying Shawn Marion’s shoe and gesturing to untie Greg Monroe’s shoe.
Patrick Palmer-Scott's insight:

Was Smith's actions morally or ethically based? Likely not, as the probable outcome of the action would be an injury to the other player. The difference between him and Larry Bird; however, is simple. Larry Bird, overall was a class act on and off the court and did not have near the negatively perceived persona of J.R. Smith, therefore it is looked at differently.
