This article written by Jack Anderson a Professor of Law at Queen’s University, Belfast, concerns the legal issues that surround the prohibition of doping in sport. The current policy on the use of performance enhancing drugs in sport is underpinned by both a paternalistic desire to protect athletes' health and the long-term integrity
Professional athletes have a tremendous influence on youth and society, largely because almost everyone looks up to them from toddlers to senior citizens, but in one way or another; everyone is influenced by professional athletes. Some think that athletes should be able to live their lives however they please, not worrying about how their actions may affect other people; however, it is important for athletes to understand that many people are watching them and that their actions do have large impacts on society. Professional athletes’ image affects today’s society and youth because they influence drug use, attitude on and off the field, and contribution to the community.
Many of the famous sports today are played with great enjoyment, however, contact injuries can always occur at any time. Many of these injuries are concussions. Couple of years back studies showed concussions were not a major subject to be dealt with, but until later this idea was proven wrong. A simple Concussion can change many things in your life even the way you act. Many have died due to multiple major concussions even famous athletes. Young high school athletes are starting their sports journey and face these same injuries and when it happens it should be dealt with very seriously.

The issue that was hand was a race issue. The reason that this was a race issue because the term ‘Redksin’ is a degatory slur for Native Americans. As a sports mascot it should be something that is not degatory towards any race.
This project is focused onthe unethical behaviors of Nike. The essay will be exploring the ethical situation of Nike, the unethical behaviors, as well as the company’s role in reducing and correcting its unethical issues.Nike is no doubt one of the world’s leading footwear and apparel company, but continues to outsource its manufacturing to factories in Asian countries like China, Thailand, Bangladesh, India, and South Korea. In using these countries, Nike continues to realize huge profit margins due to the availability of cheap labor in these countries. This practice has led to a number of ethical issues over the years for the company, bringing the social responsibility standing regularly under
Imagine being stuck with a deadlock job and having to go to work every day for 9 hours with extra hours of commuting on top of it all. Call me crazy, but I have never met anyone who wants that for their career. Life is too short to be unhappy with your job occupation, this is why choosing a career is one of the most significant decisions that a person makes in their life. Loving what you do for a career makes it as if it's not a job, but rather something you look forward to every day while bringing you happiness. Sports for me has always been something that brings me joy, especially when it involves professional athletes, traveling, and handling business/legal deals. As sports have developed into a multi-million dollar industry, there has been a huge increase in the number of people desiring to represent professional athletes. After reading articles and conducting an interview with one of the best sports agents in
According to the website, the Nassm site states that sports agent has to have, “Respect. Fairness, and Courtesy. The sport manager should treat colleagues with respect, courtesy, fairness, and good faith.” I believe that’s it’s true because i wouldn’t think i would want to be treated ugly.
Drugs have become an integral part of any modern day sporting event. Drugs give an unfair advantage to the user and the competitors that are using enhancements are not using their own full abilities to win the Olympic medal or championship. This makes it unfair to other competitors that are not using a drug or other enhancements to compete. Athletes like Lance Armstrong and Nadzeya Ostapchuk not only give sportsmen and women a bad reputation but influence the way the public think about sports and run the risk of addiction and long-term health issues. Such as liver failure and development of breasts.
Sports law is relevant to the administration of sport and a person’s participation in sport whether they play at amateur, professional or international level. The issues that can arise from sporting activity can involve aspects of other types of law such as contract law and criminal law. In general, parliament and the other courts do not make sporting rules and they do not resolve sporting disputes. These decisions are left to a sport’s association. Although, parliament and the courts may decide to make a new law or resolve a dispute when the sporting issue or activity involves criminal behavior or the contravention of individual rights. This could when the parliament passes laws related to match fixing in sport.
Sports in today’s world have gained a lot of importance and there have been a lot of additions to sports in the form of new rules, policies the way it is meant to be played etc. Though many stringent laws are framed, implemented and monitored there are always some sort of issues in the way the sports activities are carried out. Regardless of the level of participation some of the players resort to unethical ways of winning the event.
Amateurism in college athletics is an exploitation of the athletes who participate in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) sports. The amount of work that is done by these athletes to help their respective institutions generate millions of dollars in revenue, goes seemingly unnoticed when identifying the substantial amount of money flow in NCAA sports and the amount of people, from stakeholders to alumni, that benefit from this source. Amateurism, the foundation of NCAA sports, has been in place for over a century of time dating back to the early 1900s. Any athlete who is making money for work they’ve done outside of their institution is not being exploited, however, an athlete can easily be placed on the other end of the spectrum when he or she is withheld from recognizing the true monetary value of their talents and likeness that are being used for the profit of the school or others. The NCAA is understandably satisfied with the continuous growth of its’ revenue each year, yet the problem they face of having people accept that “student-athletes” are just amateurs is growing as well. “More money, more problems” by The Notorious B.I.G is seemingly fitting in this exact situation.
There are two to four million coaches throughout the United States. Less than 20% of these coaches have received any type of training (Anderson, 2012). Most youth sports coaches around America have parents as the coach of the team. This can be a problem due to the favoring of playing time and a lack of training as well. Athletes need to be trained and coached by individuals who are going to make them better both on and off the court. This is where the training of coaches comes into play. From a parents perspective the individual that is coaching their kid is very critical to the process. For example, one in every four coaches is considered less than good as seen by parents of the athlete (Aleshire, 2003). In an observational and interview
Picture this every athlete in sports using drugs no one depends on skill anymore everyone
On the surface sports is a wonderful thing; it offers people a chance to realize their dream of becoming a professional athlete as well as relish in the money and fame that follows, it also offers an escape wh ere people can relax and enjoy the spectacle that is sports. However underneath the glitz and glamour there is a dark side to professional sports that people do not often get to see. In the world of professional sports human rights are neglected.
