A convention or unwritten rule in an activity, which is not enforceable but is usually followed
Soccer – if an opponent is injured a player will kick the ball out of play to allow treatment. On the restart the player will throw the ball back to the opponents who kicked the ball out.
The conduct of players, officials and spectators has an effect on the image of individual sports and the expectations of behaviour by those involved in them. Compare some examples of conduct in sports:
Football - Diving by players to get a free kick or penalty is increasing and almost everyone is complaining about it. But accepting the rewards when cheating benefits their team.
Golf - Players are expected to own up to anything that they do wrong and even disqualify themselves
Football - Players often surround the referee to argue with decisions. Acts of violence are often made worse by other players becoming involved and fans continuing to inflame the situation by booing players. Some disagreements on the pitch are continued and fights can break out in the tunnel after the game.
