Welcome to my blog. I have to thank - or blame - my students for inspiring this contribution to the discussion of sport. The other day I sat in on presentations they were doing as part of their assessment in Online Sports Journalism. Online is not a form of media that I'm adept at creating, although I love the potential it offers as a means of information and research. I was so impressed with the knowledge and technique that they demonstrated that I thought I'd better get started myself. So here it is. The aim is to offer my view of developments in the world of sport, selected not by the "news agenda" of the day but by what catches my eye, and also my thoughts on the way sport is covered by the journalists whose work is a daily source of information, entertainment, amusement and aggravation to millions.
Where will we end up? No idea. But I hope you'll check in from time to time to see what's going on, and add your own comments.
