The games have changed yet they remain the same. Sport is not static. It continually changes - the organisation of sport has changed radically in my lifetime alone, never mind in the past century or more. Every retired athlete, coach or even fan, nostalgically claims that the sport they value is not what it once was. It has gone from localised practices institutionalised amongst communities to national, regional, and now worldwide institutional control that exceeds state or local controls. Yet however modern sport has changed, its base claim throughout its existence is that sport is for a common good. It is time to transform sport rather than allow it to merely change.
