The Age
The lack of understanding of what constitutes ethics in sport. □ The lack of understanding of what constitutes a sport scientist (given the range of disciplines it encompasses).
Richardson, A. 's insight:

Focusing on the overall health and well-being of the athlete instead of the "whatever it takes" and the "give 110%" mentality will hopefully supersede the notion that unauthorized substance and illegal drug use are not part of the equation for a winning team or a successful athlete.  An overall wellness coach and nutrition expert needs to be informing athletes of natural ways to strength, endurance and stamina, instead of the quick fix which will lead to eventual downfall, failure and career ending consequences.

Richardson, A. 's insight:

Legalizing steroids or other enhancement drugs, would eliminate all of the drama when athletes get caught using them.  If an athlete is continually expected to perform at levels far beyond what a body is capable of achieving, athletes will feel forced into this as having no other alternative if they want to keep their job or win the title.  More research will need to be done on the effects of these drugs on the body and the controversy which surrounds their use and intended purpose.

Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: The Fragility of Athletes

Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: The Fragility of Athletes | Ethics in Sports Management | Scoop.it
Sports Ethics: The Fragility of Athletes. Just a normal jump tangle going for a rebound in a hard fought close game. A Texas A&M player Derrick Roland went up, lost the rebound to Washington's Quincy Pondexter.

Richardson, A. 's insight:

A twisted ankle or torn ACL can signal the end of a career for a college or professional athlete.  These athletes will put everything on the line for the love of the game and to be able to play in the play-offs.  Oftentimes, the athlete may be pushed too far, beyond what their body should endure.  This article skirts around the possibility of athlete's pushing themselves too far and possibly compromising their own personal ethics to stay in the game.

UK Football Association reject's FIFA's ethics committee report - Malay Mail Online

UK Football Association reject's FIFA's ethics committee report - Malay Mail Online | Ethics in Sports Management | Scoop.it
LONDON, Nov 13 — England’s Football Association today rejected claims by world governing body FIFA’s ethics committee that it violated bidding rules in its unsuccessful bid to host the 2018 World Cup.
Richardson, A. 's insight:

Competition is fierce for a country to win the bid to host the World Cup.  Ethics committees seemingly have to investigate every meal, every email to ensure bribery is not occurring.  However, in order to highlight the benefits a country has to offer the international community, how does a promoter share their knowledge of their country with the committee and not spend money on extravagant dinners?

Soccer-FIFA ethics judge Eckert surprised at criticism - Yahoo Canada Sports

Soccer-FIFA ethics judge Eckert surprised at criticism - Yahoo Canada Sports | Ethics in Sports Management | Scoop.it
MUNICH, Nov 14 (Reuters) - FIFA ethics judge Hans-Joachim Eckert was surprised by public criticism from his investigative counterpart Michael Garcia over the report on the bidding process for the 2018/2022 World Cups, he told Reuters on Friday.
Richardson, A. 's insight:

Interesting how an independent agent within FIFA stated that FIFA did not violate any ethics standards in choosing the 2018 and 2022 World Cup host nations.  Not too many agencies would willingly turn themselves in.

5 Surprising Genetically Modified Foods

5 Surprising Genetically Modified Foods | Ethics in Sports Management | Scoop.it
Leaving aside the question of whether they're good or bad for a moment, what exactly are GMOs, and which foods are they in?

Via The BioSync Team
Richardson, A. 's insight:

So how does food and sports ethics relate?  The food on our table is not the same food we grew up on. Hormones and GMO (genetically modified organisms) are just a couple of the new items in our food that we probably cannot even pronounce, let alone understand the long-term effects these products have on our bodies and environment.  Thus, if corporations are allowed to process food for purchase which contains hormones and other unknown things, where are their ethics on food quality.  Also, do those products effect an athlete's performance?

The BioSync Team's curator insight, August 5, 2013 10:19 AM

The genetic modification of food is intrinsically dangerous. It involves making irreversible changes in a random manner to a complex level of life about which little is known. It is inevitable that this hit-and-miss approach will lead to disasters. It must disrupt the natural intelligence of the plant or animal to which it is applied, and lead to health-damaging side-effects.
— Dr Geoffrey Clements

I'd never recommend GM foods except to Obama. NEVER. Just one meal is enough to alter the characteristics of gut bacteria.

Richardson, A. 's insight:

Money and epic salary and endorsement deals certainly has not enhanced and increased ethics in sports.  With millions of dollars to be earned or lost due to wins, contracts and endorsement money, athletes are playing for much more than the love of the game.  In the words of Jerry Maguire, "show me the money."

Yes I agree money has changed ethics or made us more understanding

Kelly Joey Seay's curator insight, September 14, 2014 7:42 PM

This is a major reason I feel that ethics has went down hill due to the importance of making more money. 

Mike Falvo's curator insight, January 19, 2015 4:29 AM

I don't think it has COMPLETELY ruined ethics in sports, but it is definitely a driving force in the decisions made on and off the "field" of sport.

Via Dan Neglia
Richardson, A. 's insight:

Nice spin on realizing the "win at all costs" is not the most important thing in regards to teams and individual athletes.  The NFL code of conduct is representative of strides made to ensure the sports professionals return the games to a "respectable profession".  The fans want to see their sports stars on TV for doing good things within the community and not for reprehensible acts.

FIFA Looks at Itself and Nods in Approval

Maybe FIFA should be our example for all that’s right and good. Even after years of ethics scandals, maybe we’ve been wrong about it the whole time.

Richardson, A. 's comment, November 16, 2014 7:45 PM
Somehow an investigation launched by FIFA's own executives regarding possible ethics violations seems in and of itself unethical. How does an entity investigate itself? Also, one of the country's in question stated the computers which stored the information in question had been destroyed. How convenient, the article stated.
