For this week’s blog post we will be revisiting the topic of ethics. We have talked about ethics in business during our class time, but ethics goes beyond the realm of business into nearly every aspect of our lives.
When it comes to sports, ethics also play a major role. Whether it is the conduct of a single athlete, the coach, or the organization, ethical decisions are constantly being contemplated.
For Blog 5, write about your own experiences or opinions on ethics in sports. Have you ever been presented with a situation where you felt you had to be “unethical” in a given play? Is there even such a thing as ethics in sports? Are there any sports organizations you feel are the models for ethical or unethical behavior? Can the idea of ethics in sports be tied to ethics in business? Do people take what they learn and internalize from sports into business (or their careers in other areas), or is it the opposite? What they learn in sports becomes the basis for understanding one’s own actions in business, work, and professional contexts.
These are a few questions to get your brain active but feel free to approach the prompt however you feel addresses the overall topic of ethics in sports.
You need not be an “athlete” to write! Feel free to discuss other aspects of sports in society.
Also, please show us your wordpress chops. Add images, video, a poll! RATE any posts you read. And comments. Like what you wrote? Promote it via twitter, facebook, google +. Be proud of your writing. Flex your muscles.
