Gamesmanship Beliefs and Ethical Decision Making of College Athletes
Strand, Bradford; Brotherson, Sean; Tracy, Tyler
Physical Educator, v75 n2 p302-320 2018
Almost 30 years ago Eitzen (1988) stated, "American sport is plagued with problems. Coaches engage in outrageous behaviors but if they win, are rewarded handsomely. Gratuitous violence is glorified in the media. Some athletes take drugs. Many athletes in their search for a competitive edge cheat. Sports organizations take advantage of athletes" (p. 17). In many respects, not much has changed in the past 30 years and the issues of ethical practice, wrongdoing, and sportsmanship continue to be discussed (Doty, 2006; Garbin, 2010; Garner, 2013; Harrison-Dyer, 2011; May, 2001; Robbins, 2004; Rudd & Mondello, 2006; Ryska, 2003).
