Does this count as coveting


#1

Is it coveting if you keep wanting sports players to join your team or is this ok because transfers happen so often in football (soccer) and it is a big part of the game nowadays?


#2

Correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t even think this counts as coveting at all.


#3

Covetousness means sinful greed or a desire to steal. A business or sports team trading fairly for employees or players is not covetousness.


#4

Oh ok thanks. I didn’t know that it meant you wanted to steal


#5

Read up on the Catechism regarding this. Tenth commandment.


#6

I don’t think it is coveting. But there could be a sin if you care inordinately about sports. I’m not suggesting what you are talking about is inordinate concern. However many people do suffer that problem.
