HAVE YOU NO ETHICS? ORGANIZERS PUT KIBOSH ON CONFERENCE
Published October 3, 1996
The National Conference on Sports Ethics, which sponsors hoped would "put the fledgling University of South Florida Ethics Center on the map," has been canceled because of a "lukewarm response from potential sponsors and attendees," according to Arthur Frederick of the TAMPA BAY BUSINESS JOURNAL. Potential corporate sponsors were approached both locally and nationally, "but the response was not overwhelming." Scheduled speakers included George Will and former-MLB Commissioner Bowie Kuhn (TAMPA BAY BUSINESS JOURNAL, 9/30 issue).
