Eddie Eaves's insight:

Regardless of the effects it may have in the "doping market", allowing anabolic steroid use in the sports industry takes away from the moral obligations of the individual players, as well as creating questionable personal and professional ethics in the industry.

On Wednesday, Alabama head coach Nick Saban addressed the media via a press conference after the Crimson Tide's practice.
Eddie Eaves's insight:

Saban addressed several allegations to the media, handling them in a professional manner. No official statements were made against him, as it was reported that most allegations were brought on by text messages and random documents brought forth by one of the former players.

Costly Grace: An Interesting Question of Ethics and Coaching

Costly Grace: An Interesting Question of Ethics and Coaching | Sports Ethics: Eaves, E. | Scoop.it
It is a curious case concerning ethics and coaching as well as hiring and coaching. Such questions raised are as follows: Should a school allow a volunteer coach to not be screened with a background check?

Via frank james
Eddie Eaves's insight:

This seems to be quite controversial. At what point does it become rational that a coach who attends on a strictly voluntary basis not need to have a background check performed? Whether permanant or temporary, an individual who is there to asses and influence players and be in a leadership position should have a thorough background check just like any other person recuited to be in such a position.

The sheriff’s office said that the 18-month investigation called “Operation Dirty Play,” showed that coaches, team affiliates and the president of the South Florida Youth Football League were regularly betting on games.

Eddie Eaves's insight:

In the opinion of many, gambling in sports should not be allowed. It takes away from the integrity of the game and the overal reason of enjoyment and love of the game.

Are we still in it for the players?

Jade Nicole Burman's curator insight, October 1, 2014 11:24 AM

This is so unethical. Enough said.

You see this all too much in youth football, especially in the football hotbeds.  It's a shame.

Eddie Eaves's insight:

Some of these allegations that we are seeing towards OSU (if true) are prime examples of poor moral judgement, as well as personal ethics coming into play.

There has always been an issue of some kind when it comes to sports. For the most part it is usually the player, but it can also be the sports institution itself. This blog will identify specific examples of both on the college and ...

Eddie Eaves's insight:

Most sports are evolving. There are numerous changes that take place every few years to accomodate the players well being, whether it be uniforms, or how the game itself is played. As injuries increase or show more variance, we may very well see more rules and regulations in full contact sports to prevent catostrophic injuries.

There is never a time like the now. People always have the things they believe in and that will never change. The things we did yesterday will guide us in the things we do tomorrow.

The Alabama Ethics Commission says that it is an issue that is not in their hands. “It's not an ethics issue,” said Alabama ethics director Jim Sumner.
Eddie Eaves's insight:

A logical compaint, it may seem. When it comes to tickets to a football game, many would agree that others who are not part of a benefits club should receive equal opportunity to purchase tickets without an escalated price, based on that person not being part of club which receives reduced prices due to membership status.

This article discusses whether steroids should be considered an "unfair advantage" in sports and whether they are actually harmful to the user. He has some great points!

Jamison Fausett's curator insight, February 8, 2014 11:52 AM

While I strongly disagree with the use anabolic steroids, I think the way we look at steroids as a society could be adjusted. From my own research there is many positive benefits that could come from the use of Human Growth hormone.
