A funny thing happened in ‘sports-land’ last week; an international sports federation leader didn’t think he was accountable to the billions his organisation serves.
I am regularly told not to focus on the negatives with these Watercooler pieces and rather highlight positives that reflect the positive emotion, power and benefits of sport. As much as I agree with the notion, it’s hard to move past the relentless tales of bollocks that the business of sport tends to throw up. I say business because one tends to find that behind most contentious issues lies money. This one is no different.
