Sports also reinforce certain principles of the status quo — big money, competition, individual achievement with cooperative groups, triumphalism — act as a form of tribal bonding and identify formation — and even serve as a substitute for the psychological comfort that the ritual and structured calendar of religion also offer. I’m speaking as a baseball and football fan here, by the by. An increasingly guilty and conflicted football fan. Anyhow. Sports aren’t a challenge to the social order. In may ways, they ARE the social order. So sports fans get more slack than protesters, even when they behave worse.
