It’s time to make all “independent” sports bodies accountable to the public they represent!

30/06/2010

This is the 21st century and we have all sports bodies being independent of Governments. The problem is that they “represent” the PEOPLE of their respective countries but have ABSOLUTELY NO ACCOUNTABILITY to the PEOPLE.

Instead, they are almost all run as private clubs controlled by a small coterie who exist through political inheritance.

Its time we changed that. With global 24/7 news & sports channels and a huge following that allows for TRPs and massive amounts of money going into coffers controlled by a select few.

Its time ALL sports bodies who use the nations’ name and claim to represent their country in international tournaments – an NATIONAL election, just like that held in General Elections.
