With all the negative news in the world, it is always great to see that some people really take advantage of their station in life to set an example for our younger generations to follow.

 

Norm Densley's curator insight, November 12, 2014 8:21 PM

It's good to read about an athlete who is a good example to others.

As a fan of the Dolphins, any coach that encouraged this type of behavior should not only be fired, but should face fines and possible bans from coaching in the sport.

Hazing can happen anywhere.

 

It was an incident that apparently happened over the summer. The case may expose an ongoing ritual.

Middle school coach takes team to Hooters despite controversy
KOMO News
"The Corbett Middle School football players, coaches and their families have earned the right to celebrate a successful, hard-fought season.
nickelas gillet's insight:

As a coach regardless of being a volunteer or not they have a responsibility to be a leader, teacher, and roll model to their players. Taking a Middle School football team to Hooters after the season tends to not show that the Coach has the best morals. Hooters is known to exploit women, and as most would see that it is not the place for a young football team to hang out! From an ethical standpoint being society looking in it doesn’t look good for the Coach or the school they represent.

Ethics are a vital part of sports and there is a lack of ethics in some of our players today.

Victoria Molnar's curator insight, March 13, 2014 4:08 PM

This article has some good points about how the game and sports industry has turned into money. I feel this author is just venting about how they are using money and turning players into money hungry athletes. However, it is true some players will not even sign with a team over a couple of million dollars. This is crazy, many people would give their left arm for just one million dollars and here they are complaining that they are not paid enough. It should be about playing the sport because they love it and want to be a good role model not just to make millions and move on with life.

Lisa Kirk's curator insight, May 15, 2015 12:10 AM

I really enjoyed reading this article regarding ethics in athletes. Players are acting like children when they are supposed to be role models and professional leaders in an organization.  This article encompasses several situations where it involves baseball players spitting on each other, football owners building the biggest stadiums and players robbing banks. Where are their ethics and morals for the future athletes to emulate?  


My sister's friend met their classmate, who was a professional baseball player, at a professional baseball game.  After the game, there was a meet and greet for the fans.  His friends screamed out his name and he  ignored them as he continued to sign on the merchandise and walked away.  They never had a chance to talk to him and he never gave them the time or day.  Some may say, maybe he didn't remember them? When you start screaming out your High School team and friend's names, you never forget.

High school sports teams have been in the news lately, not for winning games but for instances of bullying, hazing, especially homophobic in nature. Close contact sports like hockey, football & wrestling are especially prone.

Jenny Sanchez Liermann's curator insight, June 9, 2013 9:45 PM

"The crux of the case is provisions in the contract between the USPS and Tailwind making it clear that doping was strictly prohibited and to be disciplined immediately. “Zero tolerance” is the precise phrase. In short, the sponsorship was contingent on the team racing clean."

 

"...as a cancer survivor, invincible athlete, and eventually, Sheryl Crow’s boyfriend and celebrity philanthropist. Arguably, Armstrong did more to enhance the U.S. Postal brand while he was cheating than he’s done to harm it since confessing."  Interesting take on the topic.

Carl Pelini resigns as FAU football coach due to 'illegal drug use ... | Sports Ethics: Gillet, N. | Scoop.it
The FAU head coach and his defensive coordinator unexpectedly quit during the middle of the season. Now we sort of know why.
nickelas gillet's insight:

In the world of sports today illegal drug use is all over the place from any type of performance enhancing drugs, marijuana, and alcohol, among many others. As a leader, the Head Coach, of the team they are the ones that should be showing their player how dangerous these can be not to mention what it can do to a player’s career. Not only was this unethical, but drugs are illegal. The phrase "lead by example" is not one they need to follow on this instance. Just because it is around doesn’t mean it is ethical or moral to try it or participate in the usage in any way. These coaches at least did one thing right by resigning. They have no business being a part of the sports world
