Description for Game Paperback. The Game is a multifaceted reflection on sport. It is part memoir, outlining Tadhg Coakley’s time as a player and fan, and how sport has shaped his life. But it also tackles sport on a universal scale – the good and the bad – and its immeasurable influence on our world. For fans, sport can be all-consuming and in our modern world we are consuming sport in ever greater quantities, often blindly. Sport also has a dark side; it is rife with corruption, racism, sexism, homophobia, nationalism and a raft of toxic masculine behaviour, and Coakley interrogates his own attitudes on each of these fronts. At the same time sport builds diversely positive connections and communities, and in sport – as in art – people can forget their own identities with grace, imagination and the possibility of what may be. This duality is one of the most fascinating aspects of sport. Written with warmth, openness and keen insight, The Game is an entertaining and thought-provoking meditation on the uniquely intense highs and lows of loving sport in today’s world.
