The topic of this blog is virtue. Virue ethics emphasizes an individual’s character as the key element of ethical thinking, rather than rules about the acts themselves or their consequences . Their are a couple virtues that coincide with my favorite sport which is football. The person that i will be discussing is Peyton Manning.
In this article Richard Sherman from the Seattle Seahawks talks about Peyton Manning form the Denver Broncos being a classy persson. Sherman said this about Manning because he checked to see if he was okay after the superbowl. Sherman he had suffered from an ankle injury during the game and had to sit out for the remainder of the game. This gesture by Peyton Manning showed a few different things than what most people thought about him. For Peyton to win the superbowl the way he did and carry himself the way he did was more than fantastic.
Sherman said “Peyton is the Classiest person/player I have ever met! I could learn so much from him! Thank you for being a great Competitor and person,” Sherman wrote. “There is no reason to bash him on here please Seattle let’s just enjoy this one!!!! He is still a Future HOF player.”
When Peyton stopped to ask if Sherman was okay this showed his true character. This showed the virtues that he bestows which are sportsmanship and honesty.He showed honesty by showing true feelings of compassion and care. He showed great sportsmanship to ask about an injury on an opposing team player. That shows that he goes out of his way to make sure people are cared about.
