What is "sports reform?"
Sports reform is the movement made up of people concerned about the inequities in sports today–particularly in collegiate revenue sports. This movement is made up of activists, academics, lawyers, players and former players, a few coaches, even fewer administrators, and others who have been involved in the world of sports who know things need to change.
What kinds of things are people talking about in sports reform?
Everything from due process to pay for play to traumatic brain injuries are in this discussion. Sports are a lucrative business in the USA and are a carrier of all the things we see in other for-profit contexts: inequity, racism, abuses of power, institutional inertia, and corruption.
What resources can I find here about sports reform?
You will find videos especially made for athletes to learn about their rights and the realities of revenue sports. You will find links to Going Deep: Sports in the 21st Century, a podcast that explores some of the most pressing issues of our time in sports.
