... are valuable as ends in themselves, and not merely as a means to an end. When we lose sight of the essential protections for others that a robust ethical regime affords, ethics becomes an exercise in empty selfishness.

Tyler Skovron's insight:

Ethics "governs the self".  What moral obligations do we as humans have for one another?  In the professional world, ethics play a huge role in our day to day lives.

Tiger Woods (that name says anything but ethical) is undoubtably the world's greatest golfer.  This article shares Tiger's personal disappointment with anything but the best.

The Lance Armstrong Conundrum

Does the end justify the means?

Via Jennifer Pottinger
Tyler Skovron's insight:

We all know that Lance Armstrong, drugged up or not, is an athlete.  Yes he most likely took performance enhancing drugs during the time of his 7 wins along with opening his foundations that has helped more people than probably we could count.  Do drugs discount all the lives helped and saved?  I think not.

I agree with your insight Tyler. He did help many people with his Charity. On a professional note, who knows if he used enhancing drugs.

EarthTalk® E - The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: How eco-friendly are professional sports leagues and their teams? Which stand out especially for their green efforts?

 

Professional sports, like many other pursuits, are getting greener every day. While pro leagues and teams have traditionally been the last to go green, it has all changed in recent years. Maybe it’s the fact that wasting less saves money. Or that going green generates good public relations. Or that it’s just the right thing to do. Whether it’s any or all-of-the-above, professional sports certainly have never been greener.

Tyler Skovron's insight:

Thankfully, golf tends to enhance the environment, not hurt it.  Yes it may change some of the surrounding areas, perhaps influencing the wildlife living close, but it does not turn beautiful scenery into a strip mall or parking lot.  Many professional sport teams have "gone green" or have been trying to "go green" in recent years.  Once again, very thankfully, golf is very green...literally.

Is it part of the ethical discussion to use some of the tremendous revenue generated by sports franchises to conduct green initiatives?  Does it show good corporate citizenship?

Driven by Bubba, Ping to sell 5,000 pink clubs

Driven by Bubba, Ping to sell 5,000 pink clubs | Sports Ethics: Skovron, T. | Scoop.it
That pink driver used by Bubba Watson during his Masters victory is going to the market.

Via Pam Dent - REALTOR®
Tyler Skovron's insight:

Even the best want to make a difference.  Besides donating a large chunk of his own money, Bubba Watson believes in giving.  Ping announced that they would create 5,000 pink drivers (the driver Bubba used in the 2012 Masters) and give 5% of each sold to charity.

Augusta National Golf Club to Add First Two Female Members

Augusta National Golf Club to Add First Two Female Members | Sports Ethics: Skovron, T. | Scoop.it
Condoleezza Rice and Darla Moore have accepted invitations to become the first female members at Augusta, home of the Masters.

Via Pam Dent - REALTOR®
Tyler Skovron's insight:

Women at Augusta?  What?!  Now that's just wrong...or is it ethical?  Women have made strides in society, pushing their way into the business world to become just as successful as men.  So now, one of golf's oldest and greatest traditions (of not allowing women to play or become members at Augusta National Golf Club) is following suit.

Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: Winning Ugly

A win is a win. This is a fundamental maxim of competitive sport. But a second level of discussion always occurs around how a team wins. Teams can win well; games can be well fought and competitive; teams can give up; ...

Tyler Skovron's insight:

A win is a win.  Pretty or ugly, you still succeeded and beat the competiton.  After all, 2nd place is the first loser.

Michael Jordan Banned From La Gorce Country Club In Miami Beach For Wearing Cargo Pants On The Golf Course

Michael Jordan Banned From La Gorce Country Club In Miami Beach For Wearing Cargo Pants On The Golf Course | Sports Ethics: Skovron, T. | Scoop.it

Retirement has not been kind to Michael Jordan's fashion sense, and now Jordan's curious wardrobe choices seem to have gotten him banned from La Gorce Country Club in Miami. The New York Post has the story, in which anonymous sources claim that Jordan arrived at the golf course wearing cargo pants, refused to change out of them upon finding out that he was in violation of the club's dress code, and was subsequently barred from returning.

 

The Post even got Jordan's PR rep to comment on the incident, rather hilariously:

 

"Michael Jordan did wear cargo pants . . . He had been there many times before and had worn cargo pants previously, and had never been made aware that he was violating any dress code. This time, he was made aware of the violation on the 12th hole, and at that point . . . he did refuse to interrupt his game, and return to the clubhouse and change. We were not aware that he is not allowed to return to La Gorce. I guess it's their loss - as MJ is a great golfer, and a great guest."

Tyler Skovron's insight:

Although silly and somewhat pointless, everyone needs to follow the same rules, yes unfortunatley that does mean you Mr. Jordan.  Bigwigs in Hollywood, famous actors, musicians, athletes, etc. tent to think rules do not apply to them.  Unfortunately, that isn't the case...or at least shouldn't be the case.  Thank goodness La Gorce Country Club made Mr. Jordan forgo his cargo pants...after all, they are way out of style.
