Overview
Sports have their own controversies: fights over tactics, disputes over refereeing calls, the specter of drugs and cheats. Then there are those with dark political overtones. Foul Tackling Politics and Sport takes a look at controversial moments when sport and politics have collided during the past century, some tragic, others plain sinister, a few bizarre; all the subject of hot dispute. Ranging from the infamous Berlin Olympics, hijacked by Hitler and the Nazis, the tragedy of Munich, and the Cold War boycotts, to the curious case of the Gaelic Athletic Association throwing out Irish President Douglas Hyde. It shows how sport can be cynically manipulated by some of the most unsavoury of characters in world history; and how ultimately athletes and the fans end up losers.
