Ethics in Sport

Ethics in Sport

Winning with Integrity.

Sport encompasses many opportunities for the application of ethics, whether you are playing, refereeing, coaching, or are involved in the management of a sport organization. It is easy to venture down a road of unethical decisions because at its core, sport competition is about winning. Bill Daniels understood there was a greater meaning behind sport management. In 1980, he made the very personal and ethical decision to repay with interest every stakeholder affected by the bankruptcy of the Utah Stars.
