The Ethos of Football: Galahad vs Odysseus / Logos. 2014. № 3 (99). P. 209-222
annotation:  The article discusses the principles of fair play in contemporary sports and seeks to define the concept of “cheating.” The author points out two moral positions, the “Odyssian attitude” and the “Galahadian attitude.” The first assumes that sport is not possible without a certain amount of cheating, as athletes and coaches only care about results, and not about how they are achieved. The second, in contrast, insists on strict observance of the rules of fair play. Based on examples from the history of various championships and on discussions of the most famous cases of cheating and judicial errors, the author insists that sports would become much more attractive to viewers the Galahadian position characterized the dominant mode of action. However, the author does not believe that the “Galahadian attitude” should be extended to other areas of life.
Keywords:  ethics, sport, sportsmanship, fair play, honour code, fouls, cheating

annotation:  The article discusses the principles of fair play in contemporary sports and seeks to define the concept of “cheating.” The author points out two moral positions, the “Odyssian attitude” and the “Galahadian attitude.” The first assumes that sport is not possible without a certain amount of cheating, as athletes and coaches only care about results, and not about how they are achieved. The second, in contrast, insists on strict observance of the rules of fair play. Based on examples from the history of various championships and on discussions of the most famous cases of cheating and judicial errors, the author insists that sports would become much more attractive to viewers the Galahadian position characterized the dominant mode of action. However, the author does not believe that the “Galahadian attitude” should be extended to other areas of life.
Keywords:  ethics, sport, sportsmanship, fair play, honour code, fouls, cheating
