I hope more athletes will be encouraged to take a stand against unethical behavior be it from a staff member or teammate.

Wendy R's curator insight, April 18, 2014 8:42 PM

"Laughable?" a bit derogatory isn't it?  How about something along the lines of, "We are unclear as to where these allegations came from, we don't coach in the manner he described, but we are eager to get to the bottom of this as fast and as civilized as possible." 

Josh Laker's curator insight, May 11, 2014 12:14 PM

Over the past few years the media has reported on coaches abusing players.  This article brings to light allegations of abuse at Washington State University.

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.

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.

My Thoughts:

The fact that PracticeQuiz now offers 120 review questions for the National Physical Therapy Exam is a very resourceful tool for prospective physical therapists like myself. Just as your teachers give practice tests before a big exam, PracticeQuiz is giving a valuable study tool for physical therapy students before their most important exam. I also like how PracticeQuiz tells how the NPTE is divided up in sections. Overall I think this is a very useful source that could help my in my physical therapy studies.
