I know for a fact that sports build character in both ways good and bad. I thank it has lot to do with the coach the player plays for and their parents. I always plaied for a great coach and my character is is very good. My mother and father tough me as a young child that I would Judge on my character and it would show what kind of person I am. I think as a player we need more coaches with great character and not the ones that only care about winning and that will do anything to win.
