What is the price of losing your integrity?

 

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and the league's owners are being challenged to answer that question on Tuesday after replacement referees affirmed the controversial, last-second touchdown that gave the Seattle Seahawks the win over the Green Bay Packers in Monday night's game.

 

While the call might have shifted up to a $1 billion for gamblers worldwide, there has been little actual cost to the league using replacement referees. Television ratings remain robust and attendance hasn't been impacted while the league continues to negotiate with the referees' union.

 

But just because it isn't easy to pin down an actual cost doesn't mean the league hasn't hurt itself.

 

"The reason why the NFL and other major sports are so popular is because major league sports are seen as a legitimate competition in which strategy and talent will win out and will not be undermined in any way," said Adam Galinsky, the Kaplan Professor of Ethics and Decisions in Management at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.

I commend you Embree for the positive work you have accomplished being a leader of men at Colorado.  I hear the pleas of minorities, because I am one myself.  You should be grouped into the percentage of coaches that will not get hired back because your record was horrible.  I would not hire you ever again as a football coach either.  Although, according to the numbers, you might have a point about minority coaches.  Is the sports world discriminating with head coaches of major universities?  I guess there will be more to come on this subject.  Be on the lookout.

This goes against everything a coach is supposed to be which is a leader of example. Coaches are supposed to teach and groom players, but abusive behavior is unacceptable!
