56 Answers (ii) Working class males releasing aggressive tendencies/ masculinity/macho - No evidence that working class males are any more or less aggressive than other males/ female hooligans. Tribalism – protection of local area from ‘invading’ opposition fans/religious differences/ old rivalries/ some hooligans travel to their ‘home’ ground; - will go to an away ground to commit violent acts. Nationalism – seeing other country’s/ teams fans as the enemy. - not all international spectators behave like this/eg Scotland; other sports/ don’t follow the crowd Reaction by working class fans to the take-over of football by middle class spectators. - hooligans come from wide social backgrounds. Replacement factor/football grounds becoming community focus after rebuilding of working class areas/football, the new religion. - If this were the case, why should it lead to acts of violence? Political notions linked to racism etc by neo-nazi groups /media exposure. likely that hooliganism is multi-causal. De-skilling of working class males, loss of traditional industries leading to lack of self value and self worth within society/ unemployment. suggestion that hooliganism is a symptom of society, not football Status of the game/ media hype/ on pitch action/ alcohol /on pitch behaviour is controlled; Lack of action in the past by authorities; Thrill seeking/adrenaline rush/habitual;

57 Drugs in Sport Ergogenic Aid: WADA: PED - any substance that helps performance World Anti-Doping Agency Performance-Enhancing Drug

58 Why performers may use drugs Lack morality – Assume everybody else is – with drugs Unaware of drugs Unaware of to achieve Temptation to cheat why not me Success only achievable - given by coaches health risks Outside pressure speed up recovery

59 Battle against drugs Provide those proved to have used drugs Educate young against Ensure performers aware of if they take PEDs Ensure performers aware of what is/what is not and what their are testing regimes Punish use of drugs consequences allowedresponsibilities

60 Role of WADA 2003 - Anti-doping Signatories include, all Olympic sports and Governments Promotes research into Produces list of Helps national bodies produce Helps poorer nations World Anti-doping Code polices, rules and regulations IOC 80 drug detection banned substances policies test performers
