What Professional Sport has Come to
Professional sports have been around for quite sometime, and it gives the public something to be entertained by. Each player on these sport teams, is a part of a team, whether or not it is professional or just a recreational team. So, the question has to be asked about whether these professional athletes should be allowed to do whatever they want just because they have made it the highest level of their sport. In this article, David Beckham, did not want his career to stall in England, so he joined the Milan soccer team, one of the most strongest in Europe. While joining the new team in Milan, he still belonged to the Galaxy soccer team in L.A. What he is doing now is playing in Milan when the season with the Galaxy is over, and when the new Galaxy season starts he will play there again. David had a commitment to the Galaxy team first and is now able to play on two teams because he is so good at what he does; he makes the decisions. This is unethical because if David gets hurt while playing in Milan and is unable to perform for the Galaxy, this will let his team mates down and all of the fans that come out to watch him. If you have prior commitments to a team that should be the only team you are able to be a part of no matter who you are or how good you are. These athletes should only want to be a part of one team because being on a high level team like that allows for your team to be like a family. Professional athletes all around the world need to remember what the true meaning of being a part of a team is all about.
