Kelly Joey Seay's curator insight, September 14, 2014 7:42 PM

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.

Brian Candage's curator insight, May 16, 2014 9:16 PM

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. 

James Mackay's curator insight, February 18, 2015 10:19 PM

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.
