As schools gets back into full swing, so do Fall sports, a re-broadcast of Sportsmanship and the Practice seems not only appropriate, but also beneficial. Using the ideas of true Sportsmanship in our lives to learn to accept winning and defeat teaches us through experience how to take reasonable risks and realize more of our true potential!
Sportsmanship is a word that is used a lot in sports but really what does it mean? We break it down on the latest edition of The Sports Inboundz.com Show.
Our special guest is Tim Smyczek who is currently the 80th ranked tennis player in the world. He made international news when he showed incredible sportsmanship in the final set of his second round match with Rafael Nadal at the 2015 Australian Open. Learn what his faith in Christ means to him and the true meaning of sportsmanship. We spoke after one of his matches at the 2015 Delray Beach Open.
The supporters of The Jackie Robinson West League Team are fighting for the return of the championship title, based on unfair behavior of the adults involved in seeking a means to disqualify the children based on boundaries unknown to the children or their parents. Issues of racial discrimination in funding of park district and school sports programs in African American communities have arisen. Chris Janes, Vice President of the Evergreen Park Athletic Association and coach of the Evergreen Park team that lost 43-2 to JRW, checked parents license plates, utility bills and voter registration records trying to find some type of impropriety. What's wrong with that behavior? What is it teaching our children regarding maturity, integrity, losing with grace and displaying good sportsmanship? Contrary to the public accusations, no boundaries were defined for the parents whose children played on the team. What should be done to restore the dignity and respect to the team, the parents and the coaches?
Many people are outraged at the decision of the International Little League organization to strip Jackie Robinson West of its National Championship title based on allegations that the team violated rules related to the boundaries in which team members should live. This decision came at the incessant urging of Chris Janes, Vice President of the Evergreen Park Athletic Association, who charged that a JRW team member lived in a suburb of Chicago and was not an inner city resident. Chris Janes is Coach of the Evergreen Park Little League Team, which suffered a humiliating loss of 43-2 against JRW during the Sectional Playoffs, and of course JRW went on to compete for and win the National Championship. So, are we seeing, according to Chris Janes' accusation, a team that deliberately schemed, lied and cheated to get to the top? Or are we seeing, according to JRW supporters, an immature adult who is lacking in good sportsmanship and is unable to graciously accept defeat? Is the Jackie Robinson West team being robbed of its rightfully earned National Little League Championship Title? Will this case end up in court? What do you think should happen?

The super bowl was last Sunday and while we were watching a game. A game is being played on us. While we like to believe that everybody is a good sport and show good sportsmanship. Are the people behind the scenes concerned about that at all? You have a billion dollar sport, per year. All you are concerned about is filling the seats in the stadiums and in their homes, to watch two teams try to kill each other. Notice I did not say, to watch two teams play and may the best team win. At the end of the day, it does not matter who wins on the field. It is who controls everything off the field, is the one that's winning.
We all know that most of the time the best does not make it to the last show. But, they have fed you this any given sunday and underdog malarkey. You are caught up emotionally behind teams who do not have your best interest in mind. An old man told me once before. He never bets on a team unless he is playing, his sons, or he can control the outcome of the game. That last part stuck with me and I started to notice how some of the outcomes, did not make sense. As I grew older and started to understand that it is a business first. I was no longer young and naive. They are in business to make money and ratings is money. I hoped you popped your popcorn, cracked open a beer, and soaked up some of that GAME.

Bringing the next generation of tomorrows NFL stars to you today on the College2Pro.com Players Platform Show. Join host Bo Marchionte with special guest Rodney Nichols of Benedictine.
After a strong senior season, Benedictine University defensive back Rodney Nichols has been selected for the fifth annual National Bowl, a post-season all-star game consisting of student-athletes from Division II, Division III, and NAIA schools. The game will take place at 9:00 a.m. central time on Sunday, December 7 (10:00 a.m. eastern) at Ocean Bank Field in Miami, Florida on the campus of Florida International University.
A two-year starter at cornerback, Nichols was a key member of a BenU defense that led the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference in pass defense (147.1 yards per game) this season. An All-NACC Second Team selection, the South Carolina native tallied 47 tackles, four tackles for loss, a forced fumble, five pass breakups, and four interceptions. Three of the four interceptions came in consecutive games, with one of those being returned 54 yards for a touchdown against Concordia University Wisconsin. In his two-year BenU career, Nichols intercepted seven passes and tallied 15 pass deflections. On top of this year's All-NACC honor, Nichols was named All-Sportsmanship by the conference last season.

"Our children don't need more police, they need more coaches," said many proud observers of the victorious Jackie Robinson West Little League Championship Baseball Team. Ironically, this was not a public school team, but a team put together by volunteer coaches. Many sports programs in public schools have been cut out or slowly died out due to lack of funding, leaving youth idle and frustrated. Sports competition not only burns off energy, it builds qualities such as good sportsmanship, self discipline, teamwork, determination, self pride, and goal setting. A group of 50 coaches have decided to stand up and take back the leadership of their communities by going directly to those involved in gang activites and asking them to stop and instead get involved in wholesome activities as created by these coaches, men who are willing to give time to mentor young men and women through sports.Today they discuss the challenges of reaching out to those who have been disconnected from their families and communities and bringing them back to productive involvement, rather than negative, destructive behavior that leads to imprisonment or death. They discuss the strategies to be laid out at the next meeting, and the upcoming march planned to continue to galvanize the neighborhoods that are weary of gun violence and are willing to get involved in th efforts to end it.
