Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: Mistakes Were Made

Sports Ethics: Mistakes Were Made. I was startled last week listening to a coach interview when the coach uttered words no coach or leader should ever say, “mistakes were made." I cannot think of a worse statement by ...

"Mistakes were made"

At what point do we own up to mistakes made on our own behalf?

Are we not tought at a early age to take ownership over our own actions and decisions.

Sports Ethics: Keep Your Edge. “I lost my edge.” Athletes and professionals mutter this when they struggle with their skills and when they begin to feel their skills eroding or when they feel competitors starting to surpass them.

Great look at athletes struggling with the fact that they cant always be the best and how coaches have got them through those struggles.

If someone feels like they're losing their ethical edge, it then comes time to metaphorically step back and reevaluate.

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

"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.

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.

Discipline in sports has to be the number one priority for not only coaches but also players

Richardson, A. 's curator insight, November 16, 2014 8:10 PM

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.

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

Richardson, A. 's curator insight, November 16, 2014 9:06 PM

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."

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.
