Journal Article


Abstract


  • Confession. I don’t watch or read much about sport. Even when it comes to the Olympics,

    I’m inclined to watch the Opening and Closing Ceremonies and very little in between.

    Even worse, my favourite sport probably isn’t one: WWE Wrestling. Lest I be accused

    of un-Australianness, let me admit that when Cadel Evans won the Tour de France, I

    stopped watching the scenery and started watching the cycling. However, as Lawrie Zion

    and Matthew Nicholson make clear in their introduction to the themed section of this

    issue, I am clearly completely out of step with the majority of Australians, for whom

    sport and its reporting are a major preoccupation. Indeed, an interest in sport clearly

    outweighs any interest in politics if we are to gauge this by the number of reporters

    assigned to each in Australia.
