“Money and economic power exert significant influence on the meaning, organization, and purpose of sports in society.” (Coakley, p. 327)
Image of page 2
Why do money and power play a role? Money and power have been a means of classifying people since the dawn of time. Money and power have the same affect on sport that they do on the rest of society, in that…”the one’s with the most $...wins!” Remember our history? Those in power since the Greeks were the ones that controlled sport, it was the poor who were sent to slaughter in Roman times, and fought to the death during Medieval times.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
