A Theory of Sport Stratification.
Yiannakis, Andrew
An attempt was made to develop a conceptual model to explain and predict why sports are differentially preferred by the various social classes. Rationale and empirical support were provided that indicated that higher class sports tend to be more costly, individual in nature, and noncontact; they also receive relatively lower exposure or publicity in the culture. Based on these variables, predicted social status scores for 39 sports were generated. (Author)
