Sportsmanship, try it. This past week NFL fans were able to witness Antonio Brown doing his best Bruce Lee impression.
What has been happening in the NFL and this thing so called sportsmanship? What is sportsmanship defined as?
As defined by Google, “Sportsmanship is an aspiration or ethos that a sport or activity will be enjoyed for its own sake, with proper consideration for fairness, ethics, respect, and a sense of fellowship with one’s competitors.” Did Antonio Brown consider sportsmanship, or what about Ray Rice after he clocked his fiancĂ©e in the elevator? In addition, what about “I’m the best corner in the game. When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that is the result you are going to get. Don’t you ever talk about me,” Richard Sherman said.
Where do players get the motivation to think they are better than another is, and not act with sportsmanship? Sportsmanship is something that everyone has the ability to do for themselves. These three mentioned players above chose not to follow, whether it was on or off the field.
Whether we play sports at a competitive, college level, or simply play with friends in intramural activities, we all need to have sportsmanship.
This act can be noticed or unnoticed. Are we more prone to help players off the ground after they have fallen or do as another NFL player has done and stomp on the player while he is on the ground?
Sportsmanship is a concept that we can all do, try it.

Bransen Wayne Jackson hails from Kanab, Utah and is a man of the outdoors; hunting, fishing and sports are some of his favorite activities. Despite being known to his friends as the “sarcastic, obnoxious guy,” he is outgoing and easy to get along with. Originally taking the Media Writing course just to get elective credit, Bransen says that writing for the Snowdrift has increased his interest in the newspaper industry and writing in general.
