Is That Ethical? Can You Blame a Single Player for a Loss?

In response to the question of whether or not it is ethical to blame one player for a team loss, Executive Founding Director of the Center for Business Ethics Mike Hoffman asserts, "I don’t think there is anything unethical about somebody blaming a particular person or play for a loss or failure. I do think it is inappropriate or even mean-spirited to do so because nobody is going to make every single field goal they kick or every basket they shoot."
