Violence in and around sport is well documented and has been present in sport throughout history. Violence is highly visible in American sport because it is so prevalent in televised events. For instance, violent plays are shown over and over in instant replays as sport announcers exclaim over a hit, tackle, block, or body check. Athletes who deliver these violent acts are lionized by fans and teammates for their aggressive play. According to our textbook, violence in sport comes in many forms, such as brutal body contact, borderline violence, quasi-criminal violence, and criminal violence.
With this in mind, and based on your sports interests and career goals, conduct research and locate an article involving an athlete, coach, or an administrator who was accused of or who admitted to 1 of the violent behaviors described in this module.
