College Football Needs PR (And an Ethics Refresher) | Flack Me | Sports Ethics | Scoop.it

Let me start this post by first saying that I am a proud graduate of The Ohio State University. You can tell I am because I added “The” before the university name (see what I did there?) However, it is no secret that the football powerhouse has recently come across some major issues, causing us to lose our beloved coach and become the center of an NCAA investigation.

I am glad to see Ohio State on the right track finally. If they would have followed those ethics back a few years ago they wouldn't have gotten to this place. Lets be honest their problems didn't start with Prior and those other players. It started with Maurice Clarrette and proably even before him. But Ohio State is good at covering up stuff , just like most schools in the Country. Believe me they are not the only ones doing dirt out there. The NCAA should have handled Clarrette and Ohio State back then and set an example. They didn't and look what happen. These type of ethics these schools live by will eventually catch up them . These power house schools like Ohio State think they are excused from the rules because they bring so much money in and have huge fan bases. Well they can only hide so long before it all comes crashing down .

I love cycling and started riding because of Lance Armstrong.  I was not shocked when the news broke that he was doping but I was disappointed because I followed Lance through all his Tour de France victories.  It was still amazing that he was able to recover from cancer and trained so hard to put American cyclists on the map.

Seems to be a positive way to influence a player during a game. Then once the game is over be more specific about what needs to be fixed. Get your act together can be a coaches way of focusing an athlete without adding stress to an already stressful situation during a game.

Golden Tate's Hit and Ever-Evolving Ethics of Football

Golden Tate's Hit and Ever-Evolving Ethics of Football | Sports Ethics | Scoop.it

This is an ethical issue we reach in football when it comes to coaching the sport that is know to be brutal and violent.  Coaches at all levels want to win.  Granted, the higher the level of the sport, the more pressure to do so, but at what cost.  Ethically, coaches need to be concerned with the safety of their players and the opposing team.  Back in September, Golden Tate from Seattle Seahawks hits Dallas Cowboy Linebacker Sean Lee hard.  Sends him flying hard.  But what is the outcome of the bodies that recieved and gave the hit?  Team mates and coaches get fired up at hits like this not thinking about the long term affects of what just happened to two athletes.  This kind of tugs at your ethics as a coach.  Coaches teach controlled violence in a sport like football, but how much becomes too much?

Players are now becoming more aware of the dangers of "big hits" and now the focus shifts towards the coaches. Should coaches allow their players to act "lawless"?

More often than not, there are more instances that high school coaches care more about winning. But we see that trend is turning away from that and more care is taken with the players and teaching life lessons is becoming the new gameplan

Matthew Sosby's curator insight, July 17, 4:08 PM

Coaching youth sports is chock full of times where our personal and professional ethics are put to a premium.  How we present ourselves to the youth can provide a positive impact on their lives.
