Don't blame the zombie, blame the apocalypse

I’m haven’t been a great T-shirt wearer in recent years, but since I’ve started to do a bit more exercise I’m gradually building a collection. I was wearing this one today –  the slogan “Don’t blame the zombie, blame the apocalypse” is paraphrasing the American sports idiom “Don’t hate the player, hate the game”

It made me think of the scandal ridden environment that has been sport this year.

Lance Armstrong and a range of Australian sporting teams with drugs of the performance enhancing and illegal sorts, Oscar Pistorius charged with murder, the Australian swim team accused of bullying.

My thought was – how much of this is because competitive sport places these sorts of pressures on athletes, and how much is it that this type of person is attracted to competitive sport?
