Throw Them Out Of Sport

Nothing surprises me about the ignorance, stupidity and aggression of some fans. What shocks me is the inability of the governing bodies, teams and federations to respond with any sort of intention of stamping this behaviour out.

Is Australia a Racist Country? Its Most Controversial Sportsman, Anthony Mundine, Says 'Yes'

Martin Newman | Posted 23.12.2012 | UK Sport
Martin Newman

National Sorry Day (now called the the Day of Healing) is worth nothing if it's just an apology for a distant past. If Aboriginal kids continue to grow up with few opportunities and little self-esteem what good is saying 'sorry' to make ourselves feel better? More people like Mundine are needed to start talking about solutions. And not just Aboriginals - white folk too.

Creatine - The Champagne of Sports Supplements

Aidan Goggins | Posted 11.12.2012 | UK Lifestyle
Aidan Goggins

Creatine: it's a supplement discussed in hushed, foreboding tones around the gym lockers, and rarely mentioned outside of sporting circles, such is its social stigmatisation. It's the sporting world's 'entry drug', give in to the dark side embracing the 'Big C' and you're on the fast track to an obligatory doping scandal.

You know that feeling when you've gone for a really good meal, but leave still feeling a bit hungry? That's the overwhelming feeling I've got from watching Arsenal so far this season. Don't get me wrong, it's not been a bad start...not exactly awe-inspiring, but still decent enough and with shinning beacons of promise (and don't we just love the words 'promise' and 'potential' at Arsenal!)

It seems that while the majority of Tottenham's fan base have spent the best part of the start of the season pointing fingers at one another, passing around 'the blame' quicker than Danielle Lloyd through the Spurs dressing room, the real issues have been cast to one side, ignored.

Paralympics Inspire the Here and Now, But the Race has Just Begun

Alex Taylor | Posted 18.11.2012 | UK
Alex Taylor

In the weeks leading up to the Paralympics the air was filled with a familiar, silent contradiction. The predominant line focused on how inspiring it was going to be, seeing athletes perform and overcome, despite their disabilities. At the same time, a ComRes poll found that sixty-six percent agreed that "people with disabilities are often regarded as second-rate citizens".

Mark Bayliss

The record I set was for the Enduroman Arch to Arc, a 290mile ultra distance triathlon that involves running, swimming and cycling from London to Paris. Before me, only 10 athletes had ever completed the challenge... It's a pretty tough nut to crack.
