Ethics are a vital part of sports and there is a lack of ethics in some of our players today.

Victoria Molnar's curator insight, March 13, 2014 4:08 PM

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.

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.

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.

Loved this article!

Michael Walsh's curator insight, October 19, 2014 9:46 AM

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

Mike Falvo's curator insight, January 19, 2015 4:47 AM

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

The article talks about the use of “enhancers”.  One hot topic in sports just became even hotter with the recent admission from Lance Armstrong for doping and cheating.  The article discusses the battle between agencies that are trying to ban these “enhancers” and cheating methods and the challenge of catching those who choose to do so.  The other part of the article talks about the athlete who has the desire to win at all cost and if taking such enhancers is really cheating or not.  I liked this one and found it interesting.

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.

With all the negative news in the world, it is always great to see that some people really take advantage of their station in life to set an example for our younger generations to follow.

 

Norm Densley's curator insight, November 12, 2014 8:21 PM

It's good to read about an athlete who is a good example to others.
