This handbook on sports ethics emphasizes sportsmanship, respect for the game, fair play, and making morally reasoned decisions as key to ensuring positive values and character in sport. The first chapter on background and history discusses ethics, ethical theories, moral reasoning, athletics in educational institutions, morals vs. winning, whether winning in sports has become too important, gamesmanship and violence, eligibility, elimination, cheating, gambling, discriminatory actions and societal factors, moral callousness, the link between character development and sport, programs to help develop moral values and character, and resolving ethical dilemmas. The second chapter addresses problems, controversies, and solutions related to youth, interscholastic, and intercollegiate athletics, as well as performance-enhancing drugs, and the Olympics. Essays from North American ethics and sports scholars follow, on children and sports, the ethics of flopping, the morality of NCAA commercialism, Laremy Tunsil, college sports, the role of the president in intercollegiate fundraising, distractions in sport, Deflate-Gate, and Lance Armstrong and the Tour de France, followed by 39 biographical sketches of athletes, coaches, and leaders with laudable ethical conduct, as well as 139 sport and sport-related organizations.
