In contrast to cheating, sportsmanship stands as the center in the eyes of competitors and coaches alike as the gold standard of playing a sport. At a young age, we are all encouraged, no matter win or lost, to exemplify proper ethical standards so as to facilitate a better game environment for everyone. Philosophy seeks to understand the levels at which sportsmanship must be performed considering the atmosphere. For example, does one need to show more sportsmanship when playing a recreational league or professional league? What about playing with friends or strangers? Furthermore, a common goal of philosophy is to seek the true meaning behind abstract concepts, which oftentimes is very difficult. For sportsmanship, there is no well-defined boundary or line for what counts. When studying the intersection between sports and philosophy, you must come to your own conclusions about where it starts and stops or justify why that does not matter!
