ompare and contrast politics and sports events or religion and sports events (i.e., opposing viewpoints). Using the CSU Online Library, locate two selections on sports and politics events or two selections on sports and religion events. Depending on the event you have chosen (sports/politics or sports/religion), ensure there are two opposing viewpoints (similarities and differences) to review.

- What were the key points/arguments?
- Were these points valid and/or logical?
- How did politics/religion play a role?
- What was the outcome?
- Did the outcome involve issues of money and power?
- How did this affect sports?
- Did the decision lead to better management of sport or sport play? If so, in what way?
- Which views do you support? Why?
- Which views do you refute? Why?
