Ethic of Sports: Participants must create a thread in 250 words minimum for the post addressing the questions:
Ricky Metal owned a professional sports team. A veteran businessman, Metal had owned his team for decades. One evening, in the privacy of his own home, Metal was recorded making racially insensitive remarks about African-Americans and persons of color. The recording was released to the media and a firestorm erupted. Upon hearing the comments on the recording, media personalities called for Metal to step down from his role as team owner. The commissioner of the league called for an investigation, the results of which found that Metal was in fact the person recorded.
The commissioner condemned the remarks, and the league then immediately ordered a lifetime ban for Metal, effectively disassociating him from the league and forcing Metal to sell the team.
1. Did the commissioner act ethically in addressing the concern? By what theories?
2. What impact would the league’s decision have on bridging the perceived racial divide? What further ethical leadership can/should the league provide on this issue?
