Michigan Fire Girls Soccer - Work Ethic, Passion, Commitment! - YouTube

From our 2013 Awards Night!
Shane Spetnagel's insight:

     I wanted to add this video because of the inspiration it brought me as I watched it. These young women play with a love for the game and it shows. I can not imagine the amount of training involved to get these girls to commit such passion for the sport of soccer. Their values, personal/ professional ethics, sportsmanship, dedication and talent have inspired me tremendously. Ethics are not easily taught to those that practice their own personal ethics but with this much influence I know our children grasp the concept and make the right choices. Amazing video and players.

Shane Spetnagel's insight:

When I see exceptional coaching, I want to watch it over and over. I think we can all learn from others if we pay more attention to what they have to offer. In this case, this program is installing the fundamentals to children at a young age. Children at the age of 3 on up. I agree that starting children off in the right direction will divert any inclination to play video games or stay indoors all day and watch TV. Children need to get out and be active and no better way than to be taught ethics of soccer at a young age. They learn sportsmanship and eventually adapt a love for the game. Ethics are installed at a young age so they understand the right from wrong. Taking the professional aspect of it and applying it into the real world. Another inspiring teacher deserving of the title COACH.

Bach cites ethics issue with Havelange stadium

Bach cites ethics issue with Havelange stadium | Ethics in Soccer | Scoop.it
Brazil must abide by the IOC's "zero tolerance" ethics policy in deciding whether to keep disgraced former FIFA president Joao Havelange's name on the Olympic stadium in Rio, a top IOC official said Thursday.
Shane Spetnagel's insight:

In the 1990's FIFA president Joao Havelange took bribes during the World Cup kickback scandals. He recently resigned as the president of FIFA last month but now there is much controversy  with the Rio De Janeiro stadium named after Joao Havelange and what will become of it. Obviously the ethics of the president of FIFA were not of personal nor professional manner. In fact his decision to take the bribes have been a violation of FIFA rules and regulations which are promoting professional ethics on and off the futbol pitch. There is a zero tolerance ethics policy and he undermined the code. Hopefully they agree on the name change for the stadium and it is a lesson learned throughout the FIFA community to accept the Ethics code in soccer and concur with it's policies including their professionalism.

Clever Play or Cheating? - High School Soccer - YouTube

Shane Spetnagel's insight:

I found this article very interesting. A high school team that faked an injury during an indirect kick. For an indirect kick to be successful it must be touched by one other person before being kicked in the net. The two players distracted the opposing team and slipped the ball past for a quick goal. This display is definitely a lack of personal ethics and definitely goes against the code of soccer being professional ethics. I believe these players should have been penalized and/or suspended. If these high school players play with no personal or professional ethics then their coaching/ teaching must be to blame. Ethics in soccer prevent acts like this and keep the game played at a fair level.

The ethics of flopping | prior probability

The ethics of flopping | prior probability | Ethics in Soccer | Scoop.it
A reader of The Times asks Chuck Klosterman (a/k/a "The Ethicist") the following questions about the ethics of flopping in football: "If (nearly) every player does it, is it wrong to flop? ...
Shane Spetnagel's insight:

Why is it that flopping in the rule book that practices professional ethics is deemed unprofessional and frowned upon. In which case referees are required to warm first then card if these acts reoccur. However, they turn the blind eye and allow these dives and award free kicks in their response. As a ref you are to uphold the rules and FIFA regulations. In this certain issue the players faking the dive are rewarded with a penalty. The dive has been catagorized as a theatrical stunt and has been perfected over time. Not all dives are intentional so referees do their best to determine the dive deliberate or not then play on. All players have come accustomed to the flop for an easy way to draw a penalty.

Substitute soccer player comes off sidelines to illegally stop goal - USA TODAY

Substitute soccer player comes off sidelines to illegally stop goal - USA TODAY | Ethics in Soccer | Scoop.it
Substitute soccer player comes off sidelines to illegally stop goal USA TODAY There comes a point in every soccer player's life where there's a choice to be made: Do I use my hands to block this goal, even though that will result in most likely...
Shane Spetnagel's insight:

     This article goes to promote the lengths some players would go to just to win, but disregards the fact that an unethical choice was made against the regulations and as a substitute preparing to take the field. A choice like this to jump on the field illegally and stop a goal was Ethically wrong personally and professionally. The goal may have been stopped but now you could face suspension and possible fines for failure to acknowledge FIFA rules. Not only did he create a disturbance in the rules he also may have created an image that our youth may no longer support. Or he could be sending the wrong example to our young players by doing this. They may think it is acceptable. His ethical decision would definitely be against any decision of mine, personal or professional.

More on Ethics in Soccer: The Jeitinho - Economics and Ethics | Ethics in Soccer | Scoop.it
U.S. and British players, it turns out, tend to be more ethical in this sense: they are less likely to lie about injuries and penalties. The result may be that these teams win fewer games. Soccer. Today's New York Times reports ...
Shane Spetnagel's insight:

     Jeitinho is a word in Brazil that simply means "the little way around" any ethical law or regulation in FIFA rules. What really amazes me is the sincerity of the author as he writes about British and American futbol being the most honest of players out there in our Worlds FIFA program. Trying hard to level the playing field by making the right judgement calls and keeping it fair. I think futbol needs to be tougher on the rules and regulations that encourage professional ethics so our youth can sustain those ethics and pass on such great traits. Our younger players are challenged today by what they see on TV. I hope they comprehend the professional ethics involved in FIFA as well as maintain their ethics off the field.

enrique zamora's curator insight, July 15, 2015 8:35 AM

The truth always comes out. In some sports the truth comes after the fact of a negative impact of the game. While some players are honest some are not. Soccer should have more replays on fouls. Being one of the oldest sports they have to become more fare through technology of replays.

This man Coach Frank runs a youth program called FCBLAUGRANA YOUTH ACADEMY. I was amazed by his presentation. He devotes his time and life to keeping kids out of trouble by providing an inspirational way to develop professional attitudes and Ethics in the sport of Soccer. You can see that his values are displayed by teaching/ coaching soccer to our youth as he wears his heart on his sleeve. This is what this sport is all about. Being an influence to our youth and maintaining that connection to help them better themselves as a person and athlete. I could not be any less impressed with Coach Franks Ethics and morals to dedicate his time to build our future athletes. Way to go Coach Frank. Definitely an admirable quality we all could learn.

Shane Spetnagel's insight:

     This is a great display of Ethics on behalf of Coach Prandelli to install pride and professionalism in his star players. Coach Prandelli stated that these players need to realize they represent all of Italy and will represent Italy like the professionals they are. Any player carded will be elliminated not by FIFA rules but by Coach Prandelli's strick guidelines. We owe it to our youth to represent the game of Futbol as a growing sport around the world that comprise of the elite players of each nation. Futbol known as Soccer in America has grown immensely in the past few years and with Ethics such as Coach Prandelli's it will continue to inspire young talented players to play for the love of the game.
