Does this count as coveting


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?


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


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


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


Read up on the Catechism regarding this. Tenth commandment.


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.
