The Loss of Ethics, Morals, and History in the Sports World

Tim Spring's insight:

Not even 30 years ago... I miss players like Cal Ripken and Barry Sanders.

Joshua Evans's curator insight, January 17, 2014 11:15 PM

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.

More great insight from one of the best coaches ever. 

MARSIELLE FOSTER's curator insight, May 18, 2014 6:58 PM

The" Wooding" definition of Success breeds winning in more areas the sports. With high moral standards and ethical practices he makes success about the dedication of doing your best instead of winning at all cost. 

Dillon Fury's curator insight, September 10, 2014 12:47 PM

Winning the game is not everything. Being successful is not defined by who won the game either.

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.

Values: A Code of Ethics | Physical Therapy

All physical therapists abide by a code of ethics set by the American Physical Therapy Association. Upholding this code is imperative in the acceptance of a physical therapist by their peers in their discourse community.

Tim Spring's insight:

Continued Education in a profession like this is an absolute must.

Gage Wesley's curator insight, January 6, 2014 3:56 AM

In this article, I learned that your clients or what some would call peers, need to trust and accept you in order to see the best results possible. Even though you may have a degree, continued research is still appreciated within the community of physical therapy. You also need to provide all the information necessary to a patient/client so that they can make an informed decision on what they want to do.

When I worked as PTA, the way we pushed patients through as if they were parts at a car factory, frustrated many of the other PT/PTA's alike. The way the Doctor pushed patients through, became scrutinized by insurance companies, quickly leading to its closing.

Tim Spring's insight:

It should be the main role. Ethics should trump winning at all costs, but we all know that is just not the way it is.

Great article must read.
Kelly Poggensee-Wei's curator insight, October 13, 2013 12:43 PM

Ethics plays a strong role in the world of sports. Someone with a good code of ethics is fair, respectful, has integrity, and responsible. It goes along with leadership because when you are someone that is in charge and setting an example for others it's important to set a precedent for what is right from wrong. When I'm working in sports when I get out of college I want to be someone who believes in doing the right thing no matter what the situation might be.
