  • New Perspectives on Sport and ‘Deviance’: Consumption, Performativity and Social Control by Tony Blackshaw and Tim Crabbe

    ‘The everyday makeup of contemporary sport in increasingly characterised by a perceived explosion of deviance - violence, drug taking, racism, homophobia, misogyny, corruption and excess. Whereas once these behaviours may have been subject to the moral judgments of authority, in the face of dramatic socio-cultural change they become more a matter of populist consumer gaze.’

    The Regulation of on-the-ball Offences: Challenges in Court

    Following the Court of Appeal’s judgment in R v Barnes it was argued that on-the-ball contacts in sport, in breach of the rules of the game, were unlikely to be classed as criminal.

    Law and Morality in Counterstrike

    This article uses David Fraser’s work on law and cricket as a departure point. His analysis of the relationship between law, popular culture and everyday life is inspiring and contributes to a socio-legal understanding of law and morality as well as society and its cultural development in general.
