Over het nut en nadeel van sportethiek

abstract
Ethics in sports has become more popular. When it comes down to ethics of sports, it is ethics’ explicit ambition to evaluate sports in a critical way and to ask for what ought to be. One could ask, with Nietzsche, what it means for ethics to reflect upon sports and what its pro’s and con’s are? Not only this question deals with what ethics has to say about sports, but also how it aims to endorse the critical potential of its reflection to sports as such. In our paper, we defend the thesis that if ethics of sports has a task to fulfill, it is not in telling sportsmen and sportswomen what they ought to do (or not) and running the risk of becoming a procedural instance which is only needed to legitimate certain practices of sports. What is needed, most and for all, is to offer society a forum of profound reflection upon sports in its societal context. We illustrate this with the outline of two cases, one on cyclist Tom Boonen and one on brutal tackles in football.
