Monitoring ethical behavior in sports is a current and rising discussion topic with a focus on unethical behavior in sports. This project reveals the definitions and perceptions of ethical behavior, the considerations of individuals while making decisions on how to behave, how people’s perceptions play a role in the decision-making process, and how ethical behavior is determined and controlled on playing fields. People’s perception of what is ethical varies by culture, country, and religious beliefs. For example, in India, it is considered unethical and illegal to kill and eat cows, whereas in the U.S. most people do not think twice about eating a steak. As in the general society, the field of sport also has behaviors that are considered to be unethical. Ethical behaviors are important in order to keep the integrity of the game. Ethics in sports are defined by laws of society and league rules.
