We get to hear news about the unethical behavior of players and authorities in the highly competitive sports environment. Sports have huge impact people's lives, as they create unity, promote values and community pride. Therefore, all the athletes, administrators, coaches, officials and supporters taking part in sport, must take the personal responsibility to ensure that the sport is fun and fair for everyone.
Morals, ethics and values are more than rules or laws. These are implied on duties or actions that one should take. But also judge what is right or good for a person. If somebody don't perform in that way, then its wrong or bad.
One of the common problems of following morals and values in sports is that these differ from one player to another. It thus becomes an obligation of coaches, team captains and leaders to tell about basic sports morals and ethics to their team, as well as adhere themselves to become and example.
Fairness, integrity, equity and respect are four important values in sports ethics. What all you feel about co-player or others also determines your moral sense. If a player values others, he will be considerate and will play with moral sense & compassion. Before doing anything, you will always consider what affects your actions will have on others, the fun of the game, and thus you will do what is right and good.
If you will feel that opponents are against you, you will lack empathy for their feelings. A player without morals and ethics will not recognize the values and worth of opponent players and will not have any compassion for their welfare.
Human nature is good and maximum people will never think of winning a single point at the expense of harming another player. Ethics are really important in sports. These form the basis for moral behavior. You might not be able to win every time, but if you will handle your defeat well, you will get respect from others.
