Film: Not Just a Game. Northampton, MA: Media Education Foundation, 2010.

  1. Howard Cosell famously declared that “Rule #1 of the jockocracy is that sports and politics don’t mix.”  How does Zirin poke holes in that statement?
  2. What does Zirin tell us about manliness and sport, and how does he use football to explain what he calls the “militarization of sports culture”?
  3. How did Pat Tillman’s life “expose a fault line in the political mythology of sport”?
  4. In the section of the film entitled “Like a Girl,” how does Zirin demonstrate that sport can serve as a window into larger issues of gender inequality?
  5. How does Zirin show that sanitizing sports history is a political act as much as exploring the political in sport?  Think about what Zirin says about Jackie Robinson.
