the book of the values of the mercury-Cups shows the importance of winning can be in the millions of business football. It is often employed in the process, Fairness in the rear.

County –Shortly before Christmas it's been. We have read a story that has always looked so good in this, the thoughtful time. Told the story of a football player, don't want to partout accept a gift. They knew that the penalty was not justified, because the alleged Foul was committed on her. It has indicated to the referee to his error, as the but on the execution of the penalty kick and has a shot, the player from the Ball far past the gate in the direction of the corner flag. And your team has lost 0:1.

After we had read this story, we remembered many of the scenes in professional football, and were overtaken by the harsh reality of the sport. While there are always the situations that a League player makes the referee's attention to an error, but they are rare, much too rare. Of course, much more is there on the game, it comes to million, if a game can decide a single gate on the descent, about the European Cup-participation, or even the championship. Too easy to forget that there is also game is, Sport, the written Fairness to the flags.

"In our fast-paced and often make use of a elbow-mentality-dominated society, it is all the more important to set an example of togetherness."

Dr. Rainer Koch, President of the Bavarian football Association and a Partner to the mercury-CUP

But it may screw up his honesty to the employer's success, it of the damned morality because of the many money which is earn in international business? As a hobby player from Westphalia, had it is certainly easier to confess sportsmanship, Fairness, and justice. Even if we have to draw the bitter conclusion that the omnipresence of big money crushing in professional sports, the morality, mercilessly. That only the victory counts. The victory at any price, by all means, even beyond the legality. The Sport is said to be a mirror image of the society. And when we Worry over their condition, when we look in vain for moral leadership, according to an ethical minimum consensus, why should be the professional athlete, more noble, more honest behavior than the ordinary citizen or the politician who has committed even, just for the sake of his country, but often to his re-election, first thinks?

First to win, then the Moral, the term "Victories" is arbitrarily replaceable by "money". Greed is the Motivation, not only of professional sports, has long since thrown all the beautiful values on Board and is. Performance counts, success. And Money. Anyone who wants to, can love mourn the loss of the Sport that was once so beautiful, so worth it, so entertaining, the peoples to connect and make friends was able to make. In times like these, but we want to look forward rather on the small stories, the Sport also writes of Fairness and decency, justice and tolerance. We don't need to look away from the telegenic inflated glittering world, where the joy of play and Sport, to the thickness of the stock market. We will find you, and tell our kids. Again and again. Even if the reality in the big sports business writes stories. Stories of greed, fraud and Doping.
