Paying Attention: It happened. Or It could have happened. Or it’s going to happen. There’s a major story in the world of tennis that involves match fixing and it’s not a good thing. The essense of sport–especially professional sport–is fair and real competition and to have even a hint that results could be fixed in advance is destructive to the integrity of the sport. The BBC reported this story and it’s gained a lot of traction on sites and talk shows around the world. There is also the specter of institutional collusion hinted at as well, the implication being that tennis’ ruling bodies knew that something was going on and didn’t stop it. That means a double fault: one on the part of the players; the other on the part of the ruling bodies of the sport. Let’s hope, for everyone’s sake, it’s not true. And if it is true….fix it immediately. Tap dancing around the controversy is just not going to work in the total media/24/7 world we live (and play) in now.
