Have sportsmanship and morality become incompatible with modern football?

“Have we finally reached a point in football where a hard-fought honourable match is rarer than one involving ethical controversy? It seems so – as England’s recent friendly against Scotland left many surprised at the sportsmanship on show. As the seasons go by football’s ethicality seems to become more and more diluted. Perhaps it’s down to generational change, perhaps inflated wages or the financial implications of failure are to blame – but if the ease with which players hop from one club to another tells us anything, it’s that the 21st century win-at-all-costs attitude is certainly not down to club devotion.” Think Football (Video)
