Professional Sport

So the NZRFU has posted a multi-million $$$ loss for the year. So the Melbourne Storm have been found to have exceeded the salary$$$ cap for a couple of seasons. So the IPL is rife with claims of match fixing and bribery. So what! It’s only to be expected. Sport is sport and business is business and if you start running a sport to make money (as a business) the fine ideals of the sport will be the first casualties. The sponsors don’t give a damn about the sport just so long as they and their brethren continue to make money, so they will cheat, they will cut corners as $$$ saving expedients, they will throw out the rules of fair play, they will sacrifice the purity of the game. Any surprise then that there are big $$$ problems in sport?
