First, the theory of ethical egoism. According to this theory, “actions are morally right because they maximize self-interest” (Farias, 2012, slide 6). When occupational therapists agree to perform duties or work on skills that are outside of the OT scope of services, they are working to promote their own self-interests and well-being. It feels good to help others and when we believe that we are going above and beyond to keep our clients happy, we are doing what is in our best interests. Since ethical egoism states that “it is individualistic, and the right thing to do is maximize one’s own utility,” then this dilemma holds true (Burgess-Jackson, 2013, p. 532).
When choosing a team, evaluation should be based on skill, personality, and prior behaviour. Gender and race should not inhibit any decisions made. Since sport management is involved with the business aspects of sport, it is important that ethical issues are handled in a proper manner. Ethics in sport adversely affect a sport manager 's career. Some prominent ethical issues that
People during the Salem Witch trials and even today exaggerate on the drama brought up about people all over the world. This happens especially when professional athletes do something that makes the people think. “The photo of manning showed him clean-shaven in a suit, while Cam Newton was sporting a panthers beanie.” (Massie). There is hysteria found in this research because people are judging Cam Newton due to his attire somewhat on his race, they believe that he is arrogant which has caused people to think of every colored player being considered ‘thugs’ or criminals. This also compares to the hysteria that happens in “The Crucible”.
As sports and our culture evolve, the techniques of playing and coaching the activities improve. Today, there are more participants, both men and women, in recreational and organized sports. Players are bigger, stronger, and faster than their predecessors. The desire to win at all levels of competition, the number of college scholarships available, and the money professional athletes are making have created an environment more conducive for athletic injuries. With the new awareness and media attention being paid to such injuries, sport-related concussion is starting to become a big deal because people usually aren't educated on the long term effects and how it can impact you in the future, yes playing professional sports in a good career path and yes it does involve a lot of money but what is the point of making all that money if you aren’t even gonna be able to use it because you’re mentally disabled.
Statsky talks that the true essence of the sports has lost its meaning in today’s world. The high emphasis on just winning has taking over the true spirit of the sport. Jessica talks about how the core values of the sports like team spirit and sportsmanship and a healthy body image, should be kept alive as they help in developing a child’s
Cut his throat! Spill his blood!’”(Golding 152). The group Jack managed to control became a mob, so the kids did not have a choice but to follow. This chant, where they scream and mention multiple times in the book shows how heinous humans can be by simply spitting the words killing, cutting, and spilling blood as if it were nothing. The way in which people get too easily influenced is why people nowadays hesitate to stand up for themselves for what is wrong.
Another is how the members of the team give meaning to and identify the authority of a captain and how they respond to it. Through this they accomplish expected responsibilities and tasks, which lead to an effective team. Another example would be trophies given in sports. Although for non-athletes it does not seem like such a big deal, for those who won the trophies, it could mean the world to them. This is a perfect example of the “looking glass self” as a trophy could possibly symbolize how an athlete feels after winning

Many rappers who have conflict and argue are being violent and people who listen to it oftentimes catch on to the violence and thinks it is okay. Eventually through their violent music it turns into bigger problems and “occasionally a war of words between feuding rap stars turns into real violence and murder (Sharpton 73). The violent and explicit language that rappers tend to use in their music leads to criminal activity and that is a huge harm to our
