  • Reconceptualizing Women's Wellbeing During the Pandemic: Sport, Fitness
           and More-Than-Human Connection

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Holly Thorpe, Allison Jeffrey, Simone Fullagar, Adele Pavlidis
      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      This paper explores the gendered, disruptive effects and affective intensities of COVID-19 and the ways that women working in the sport and fitness sector were prompted to establish more-than-human connection through technologies, the environment, and objects. Bringing together theoretical and embodied insights from object interviews with 17 women sport and fitness professionals (i.e., athletes, coaches, instructors) in Aotearoa New Zealand, this paper advances a relational understanding of the multiple human and nonhuman forces that shape and transform women's wellbeing during pandemic. Drawing upon particular feminist materialisms (i.e., Barad, Braidotti, Bennett), we reconceptualize wellbeing to move beyond biomedical formulations of health or illness. Through our analysis and discussion, we trace embodied ways of knowing that produce wellbeing as a more-than-human entanglement, a gendered phenomenon that can be understood as an ongoing negotiation of affective, material, cultural, technological and environmental forces during a period of disruption and uncertainty.

  • “Riverboat Ron”: A Critical Reading of Ron Rivera, American Brownness
           & Latino Masculinities in the NFL

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jorge E. Moraga
      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      Ron Rivera, after eight and a half years as the only Latino Head Coach employed by the NFL, was fired in 2019 by Carolina Panthers’ new ownership. Soon after, Rivera was hired as the new Head Coach of the then-Washington Reds*ins. Empowered to not only coach the team, he has been tasked to shake up the organization's cultural, gendered, and racialized leadership-status-quo. In doing so Coach Rivera threads new ground across the ever evolving color line in U.S. sports, particularly “the brown color line.” This essay explores the life, career, and ongoing-regionally based celebrity stardom of Ronald Eugene Rivera. I argue that Ron Rivera charts pathways forward amidst a U.S. socio-cultural-political climate rooted in anti-Native, anti-Black, anti-immigrant sentiment and a sporting industry embezzled in neoliberal racial politics. The essay theorizes “brownness” in sport from a “Latino masculinity” perspective to situate Rivera's struggles for (in)/(hyper)visibility and the complexed realities of the ongoing gendered color line in U.S. sport amid social pressure and protests for transformation and change.

  • The Anti-Intellectual Coach: The Cultural Politics of College Football
           Coaching from the New Left to the Present

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Andrew McGregor
      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      College football coaches often position themselves as defenders of American values. As popular figures with influence, coaches are able to shape public views about a variety of political and social issues. Coaches can also alter the ways fans perceive athletes, many who are racial and ethnic minorities, and understand the inner workings of the sports world. Relying on the popular press, this article explores the rhetoric of big-time white college football coaches and documents instances where they weigh in on social and cultural issues, such as the New Left and Title IX, to gain a fuller appreciation of the political and intellectual role coaches played during the culture wars. It argues that coaches became key conservative voices that adopted an anti-intellectual tone as college football emerged as a front in America’s polarized culture wars.

  • Social Justice Through Sport and Exercise Studies: A Manifesto

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Brynn Adamson, Matthew Adamson, Caitlin Clarke, Emma V. Richardson, Synthia Sydnor
      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      This manifesto reimagines social justice in physical cultural studies by renaming, broadening, and building new characterizations of the body, dis/ability, mental health, exercise, social oppression, and sport. We problematize embedded ‘myths’ in exercise and sports studies scholarship for purposes of informing praxis-based research, and emancipatory practical agendas. These ‘myths’ include the embodied tragedy myth, the myth of bodily control, the sport for peace/development myth, the exercise is medicine myth, the healthism and exercise myth, the compulsory ablemindedness and exercise myth, and the exercise is cost-effective myth. Using intersecting and diverging theories, we propose new ways of knowing these taken for granted notions to springboard a new, socially just, emancipatory approach to research and practice.

  • A few Weeks in Dirt City: Sport-Related Gentrification, Mobilizing
           Resistance, and the Art of Failure in Edmonton, Alberta

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jay Scherer, Rylan Kafara, Judy Davidson
      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      There is no shortage of sociological research that explores the successes and failures of various sport-related social movements. However, a more capacious approach to understanding the significance of sport-related social movements, their imaginative actions and collective labor, and their impacts on social change, is one that shifts its focus away from binary categories of “success” and “failure”. In this paper, we explore the formation of the short-lived Edmonton Community Benefits Coalition, which emerged in 2016 to oppose the lack of a legally binding Community Benefits Agreement associated with a new publicly financed National Hockey League arena in Edmonton’s gentrifying city center, an area of spatially concentrated racialized poverty. Drawing from our ethnographic research, we examine how coalition members engaged in the collective labor of building solidarity, including the collaborative development of political strategies, while recognizing that the odds of successfully penetrating neoliberal capital and municipal governance were virtually impossible. Finally, given that the coalition ultimately “failed” to secure more significant institutional impacts, we offer an analysis of how this failure engendered several effects, including the cultivation of new relationships and political strategies in the ongoing struggle against gentrification and its related displacements in Edmonton, Alberta.

  • Decolonizing the Sneaker: Sneaker Customization and the Racial Politics of
           Expressive Popular Culture

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Brandon Wallace, David L. Andrews
      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      Epitomized by the athletic sneaker industry's lucrative mining of Black bodies and Black culture, the colonization of the racial “Other” by the forces of Western consumer culture has become a defining feature of late capitalism. However, we propose that contemporary consumer culture also offers possibilities for everyday decolonizing practices, specifically those associated with sneaker customization. Drawing on 15 interviews with racially-marginalized sneaker customizers, we explored how individuals used sneaker customization to initiate critical and creative dialogues with the sneaker industry and other late colonizing forces. We found that participants used sneaker customization to assert their humanity through: signaling their personal/group identity; articulating political subversions and solidarities; and seeking to uplift disadvantaged communities. We conclude by encouraging sport scholars to critically engage the possibilities for decolonizing politics as infused within everyday popular cultural practices.

  • A Foucauldian Analysis of the Romanian School of Gymnastics as a
           Superpower Between 1976-1981: What Securitatea Knew About Bela Karolyi’s
           Method

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Simona Petracovschi
      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      During the Cold War, the Romanian school of gymnastics represented a superpower in the world of WAG and became a part of Romania’s international politics strategy. This ascension started under the supervision of Bela Karolyi, the coach of the Romanian team between 1972 −1981. Bela Karolyi represented the type of coach who used tactics to produce performance. Forced by Securitatea surveillance, the political police of the communist government, Bela Karolyi had to constantly adapt the technologies of power to have the best tactics to win. By using the hierarchical power of communist government against the Romanian Gymnastics Federation, Bela Karolyi was able to build his tactics until the moment it ran against the government strategy. Forced to defect to the other side of the Iron Curtain, Bela Karolyi continued to improve his technologies of power and tactics that transformed the United States WAG team in a superpower.

  • Queering Indoor Swimming in the UK: Transgender and Non-binary wellbeing

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jayne Caudwell
      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      This paper draws from a research project that was initiated in 2017 and continued in to 2020. It followed on from previous University-LGBT + community projects (e.g., football versus homophobia 2012–2018) and involved working with a local transgender social group, specifically, their engagement with once-a-month recreational swim sessions. The research findings that are discussed come from sixty-three research participant's ‘drawings’, three focus groups including a professionally drawn illustration of two of these focus groups, and nine semi-structured interviews. The analysis of the qualitative data demonstrates the significance of play and pleasure, feeling free, and transgender and non-binary imaginations to physical activity participation, and wellbeing. These three themes are presented through the lens of queer/queering and transfeminism. As such, the paper has two aims: to document the experiences of physical activity by an often-excluded group; and to evaluate the concept of queering to an understanding of indoor recreational swimming and wellbeing.

  • Fan Reflections on Sexuality in Women's Football in the United Kingdom

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jamie Cleland, Ellis Cashmore, Kevin Dixon, Connor MacDonald
      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      This article presents the responses of 1,432 male association football fans, collected via an online survey from March 2020 to April 2020, regarding their views on sexuality in women's football in the United Kingdom. The analysis focuses on two broad themes that emerged from the data: (1) the association of women footballers with masculinity and how they subsequently transgress the traditional characteristics of femininity; and (2) a reduced stigma surrounding sexuality in women's football given its lower profile in terms of coverage and the smaller number of fans in comparison to men's football. The article concludes by outlining how there is less homonegativity concerning sexuality in women's football in the United Kingdom, primarily because the heteromasculine position of male fans is not challenged, but fans also reaffirm the stereotypes and myths of nonheterosexual women playing a sport like football.

  • Examining Stakeholder Outlooks on Football Policing and Security: The Case
           of Euro 2020

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jan Andre Lee Ludvigsen
      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      In the case of the 2020 Union of European Football Associations European Championship in men's football (‘Euro 2020’), this article investigates stakeholder perceptions on the ‘policing’ of fans. On a European-wide scale, the policing of fans is a contested topic. Meanwhile, the policing and security efforts required for sport mega-events like Euro 2020, uniquely planned to be staged in 12 different countries, require years of planning and enormous resources. Adding to this, the Championship's timeline was prolonged following the coronavirus disease-2019-related event postponement. Drawing from original insights from documentary research and qualitative interviews conducted before the postponement, this article argues that stakeholders strongly advocated for a communication and dialogue-based approach to fans. More specifically for Euro 2020, consistency in the policing approaches across all 12 countries was highlighted by stakeholders as being of paramount importance for fans’ security perceptions. The study thus extends existing insights into football policing and the wider understanding of security and policing in the present-day world.

           Teenagers

      Authors: Sylvie Parent, Marie-Pier Vaillancourt-Morel, Allyson Gillard
      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      The aim of the present study was to examine the associations between interpersonal violence (IV) experienced in the context of sport by teenagers and three mental health outcomes: self-esteem, psychological distress, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms. A convenience sample of 1055 French-Canadian athletes between the ages of 14 and 17 who were participating in an organized sport was recruited to participate in an online survey. Results showed that psychological violence and neglect as well as sexual violence were independently related to lower self-esteem while physical, psychological/neglect, and sexual violence were all independently related to higher psychological distress and PTSD symptoms. Early intervention programs for athletes that experience IV is critical as it may help prevent the development of subsequent mental health issues.

  • An Empirical Investigation of Violence Against Women in the NFL

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Krystyna Gotberg, Jacquelyn D. Wiersma-Mosley
      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this study was to examine violence against women (VAW) in the National Football League (NFL). Since Ray Rice assaulted his partner on video, VAW by NFL players has received more public attention. However, there is little empirical research that examines VAW in the NFL and player suspensions compared to other violations. Data come from a public list of 176 NFL players known to have violated NFL policies from 2010–2019. Four major types of violations were found: VAW included sexual assault, rape, and domestic violence; general violent behaviors included assault or battery; drug-related offenses included substance abuse, alcohol, driving under the influence (DUI's), illegal drugs, and performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs); and minor sports-related infractions included issues such as missing a team meeting. The average number of game suspensions was 4.08 for VAW offenses, 1.75 for general violent offenses, 4.05 for drug-related offenses and 1.88 for minor infractions. We found no differences in the number of game suspensions for drug-related offenses compared to VAW; general violent offenses had even fewer suspensions. These numbers are contradictory to the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy of a 6-game suspension without pay for VAW and general violence.

  • White Property Interests in College Athletic Admissions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Kirsten Hextrum
      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      Dominant cultural narratives position college sports as engines of racial integration and upward mobility. Previous studies examined the chances for low-income men of color becoming athletes in two sports: men’s football and basketball. While highly visible, these athletes represent the minority of participants. The majority of college athletes are White and middle class. In this conceptual article, I apply Cheryl Harris’ whiteness as property framework to identify the institutional conditions that prevent college sports from functioning as integrative and mobility engines and instead protect Whites’ privileged access to higher education via sport.

  • Feminist Sociology Confluences With Sport Science: Insights,
           Contradictions, and Silences in Interviewing Elite Women Athletes About
           Low Energy Availability

      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      This article explores the socio-cultural dimensions of elite sportswomen’s experiences of low energy availability (LEA), focusing particularly on elite track cyclists. With a multidisciplinary research team (two sport scientists and a feminist sociologist), the project began with a suite of quantitative measures that identified five of eight women track cycling athletes categorized with LEA and three athletes categorized with sub-optimal energy availability. This was then followed by semi-structured interviews that revealed the athletes’ complex relationships with body image, menstruation, and nutrition practices, and varied experiences of LEA. Bringing the qualitative data into dialogue with the previously collated physiological data, however, helped us acknowledge the silences and deflection strategies among those with more severe cases of LEA. Ultimately, this article offers original insights both into elite track cyclists’ understandings of body image, menstruation, and nutrition as associated with LEA, and important reflections on the challenges of doing interviews with sportswomen on sensitive topics in high-performance sporting environments.

      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      Throughout history, water as a tool for racialized oppression has been in constant evolution. From utilizing water as a passage to transport slaves, to using fire hoses as a form of punishment toward Black people, liquified racism is a concept we coined to represent past and present racial discrimination through the use of water. In this paper, we conducted a critical content analysis of the USA swim team and the swim team pages of the top ten Division I men’s and women’s college swimming programs to uncover how liquified racism is prominent within these contexts. Findings suggest that Blackness is racialized, tokenized, and perpetually silenced on swimming websites. We argue that Black individuals lacking representation in this sport, along with discourse surrounding competitive swimming, ultimately promotes whiteness, racial hierarchies, and an illusion of postracism.

      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      This essay investigates the early stages of the Major League Baseball (MLB) pipeline by focusing on the Dominican academy system. Once an international player is signed to a professional contract, they report to the team’s academy in the Dominican Republic. All 30 teams have an academy located on the island, where they house, feed, train, and educate players on American culture. I argue that MLB maintains a neocolonial system by having a system of insufficient education, discrimination, and surveillance based on Haitian nationality, and by communicating the American dream to its prospects. MLB controls its prospects economically and culturally in these instances, which is strictly neocolonial. I analyze, with attention to internal discourse and reference to neocolonial literature, how MLB justifies and maintains this system, rhetorically.

      Abstract: Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Ahead of Print.
      This article investigates the intersection of three interrelated trends: first, the positioning of sport as a contributor to sustainable development, particularly in regard to the increasing corporatization of sport for development (SFD); second, the trend toward sustainable development in the extractives industry, as taken up within a corporate social responsibility (CSR) approach; and intersection of SFD and CSR when mobilized in pursuit of sustainable development in Indigenous communities in Canada. To do so, we examined the sustainability documents of Rio Tinto, the largest mining and metals company in Canada, with a focus on its operations in the Canadian North that are near Indigenous communities. Based on our results, we argue that SFD programming and the CSR approaches of Rio Tinto promote forms of sustainable development that capitalize on broadened (and emptied) definitions of sustainability, that may ultimately contribute to greater forms of unsustainability.
