Joe Paterno's legacy at Penn State is tainted as late coach failed to ... - New York Daily News | Sports Ethics: Metzger, C | Scoop.it

This is where ethics in coaching and sports takes a horrible and sad turn.  The story of Joe Paterno and Jerry Sandusky is a sad, dark, disturbing tale.  One used his position to perform sexual acts on little boys (Sandusky) where the other was highly unethical in knowing about what was going on and hiding it from the school board and law enforcement officials.  Joe Paterno broke an ethical code that coaches have to never use their position to hide illegal acts and to turn a blind eye, so to speak, when acts are being performed that are illegal.  Joe Patterno allowed victims of a sexual predator to live with the fact that it happened and could have been stopped if he would have lived up to ethical and moral considerations and pushed for the arrest of one of his employees and coaching staff members. 

 

Joe Paterno was the winningest coach and at a point in time, considered a hero of the Penn State area, but no more.  He has broken not only a law, but morally and ethically, broke everything a coach should stand for.  He preached integrity and graduating college, but never protected his players from possibly being victims, witnessing such acts, and he never protected the community that tried to protect him.

Are Ethics and Sport Compatible Terms? | The Sport Digest

Are Ethics and Sport Compatible Terms? | The Sport Digest | Sports Ethics: Metzger, C | Scoop.it

The current ethical state of sports is volatile; marked by diverging ideas of what ethical behavior and conduct should be and the behaviors that are being demonstrated. Mixed messages about sport are sent to audiences when the value of winning is overemphasized, while sportsmanship takes a secondary role.

Willam Rice's curator insight, November 12, 2013 11:28 AM

All coaches should be aware of how to safeguard themselves from situations that might put them at risk of unwarranted accusations. Good article

Jason Cain's curator insight, March 16, 2014 12:46 PM

Athletes are influenced very easily by their coaches. There is a thing line that a coach must not cross when working with individuals especially with athletes of the opposite sex. Texting individuals has become a code of ethics concern when texting involves just one individual. I feel that group text that involve practice or games concerns should be fine. 

Adam Odell's curator insight, July 20, 2014 3:10 PM

Coaches should maintain a professional level with all individuals of the team.

Unethical behavior for sure.

This is a great example of a horrible coach and person with no professional ethics.

Manuel Barnett's curator insight, May 18, 2014 10:45 PM

Professionalism at all times as a coach is must. Parents are trusting you with their children be them boys or girls, and they expect nothing but the utmost professionalism at all times. This is a prime example of where ethics on both the personal and professional level failed.

Curt Metzger's insight:

What disturbs me about this article is the title, which is also why I decided to include it. It describes his behavior as the "American Way." That statement inadvertently molds the minds of careless readers and develops a subconscious mentality that says 'to win you need to cheat' or similarly 'if you're not cheating, you're not trying.' Even though the article speaks about Mr. Armstrong diming out all those who helped, people will remember the title.
