Abstract or description

Sport seemingly embodies all that is morally right. Its benefits are practically unqualified. Who could question the righteousness of a pursuit that has entranced us for at almost 3,000 years (the ancient Greek festival was first held in 776 bc)? Ellis Cashmore argues that, for all its apparent innocuousness, sport is a harmful presence in society.
