The Business & Politics of Sports contains over 100 of Evan Weiner's columns written between 1998 and 2005 that describe the power plays, media and political (federal, state and local) connections which rule the 19 billion dollar a year business of sports. At the heart of Evan Weiner's writing lies his belief that "it's great to watch a game and report on it, but democracy deserves more than a box score when it comes to scrutinizing the business of sports." "The public," Mr. Weiner suggests, "needs to be aware of the relationship between politics, government, the media and sports ownership. Americans generally view sports as fans and do not realize how many hundreds of millions of their tax dollars go to big sports." He calls upon editors and TV progrmmers to look at sports as more than an entertainment forum and opines that journalists also need to examine the sports industry because, "in the end, just about every American citizen has some money directly or indirectly invested in the sports industry." In The Business & Politics of Sports Mr. Weiner's columns are divided into ten thematic chapters entitled Business, Colleges, Endorsement/Sponsorship, Labor, Events, Politics, Media, Stadiums, Olympics, and Fans and the Public. Laid out in an easy to read format, they progress in chronological order from 1998 to the present, showing the fascinating evolution of sports business.

It's a great book written by a great guy, a man with encyclopedic knowledge of many sports who has interviewed and talked with many famous sports figures.

At a time when the mainstream media refuses to pursue anything serious about the business of sports because they profit from that industry, Mr. Weiner pursues the topic with zeal. He has certainly done his homework over the years, untangling a very tangled web that interconnects the worlds of sports, politics and business in this collection of print columns. What's more, Mr. Weiner does so in a matter-of-fact tone - declining to insert his judgment but informing us of the backroom deals that shape sports. The original protagonist of exposing hypocrisy in sports was Howard Cosell. Probably no network would dare hire Cosell if he were still around because too much money is at risk, but he can rest in peace. Mr. Weiner has taken up the cause.
