Brian Candage's insight:

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.

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.

8 Annoying Sports Traditions
CBS Local
Sports are steeped in tradition from baseball's seventh inning stretch to the Green Bay Packer's Lambeau Leap. These playful expectations are part of what we love about our teams.
Brian Candage's insight:

Some of these "traditions" are good clean fun, and some of them may be unsportsmanlike on the part of the fans. You decide.

This is a great article on the fact that players don't play their respective sport for the love of the game anymore. They allow themselves to be bought out by endorsement companies.

Brian Candage's insight:

This article really hits the Personal Ethics point. Why on earth would a coach let his team go up by that much. After your team goes up by 30 or more points you should be able to tell the other team isn't really going to put up a fight. That's when you sit your starters, or start running small gain plays instead of the big Hail Mary plays.

Caught On Video: Florida Youth Football Assistant Coach Punches Referee

Via NBC6:

 

A little league football assistant coach could be facing assault charges after he was caught on video punching a referee during a game at West Park over the weekend, police said Monday.

 

The incident happened Saturday evening during a game between the West Park Saints and Miramar Patriots at Mc Tyre Park at 3501 Southwest 56th Avenue, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office report.

 

According to the report, referee Andrew Keigans gave the Saints a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct after one of the assistant coaches made a derogatory comment from the sidelines.

 

The assistant coach, who disagreed with the penalty, barged the field and confronted Keigans as he was held back by head coach Antonio Lane, the report said.

 

Because the assistant coach left the sidelines and entered the field of play to confront Keigans, the head referee decided to end the game, the report said.

 

At that point, the entire coaching staff and parents of the young players ran onto the field to confront Keigans. As Keigans started walking off the field, the Saints' assistant coach ran towards him and slapped him on the face with his left hand.

 

The assistant coach was later identified as 43-year-old Dion Robinson. He hasn't been arrested yet but could face an assault charge, the BSO said...
