Summary: Fort and Winfree apply sharp economic analysis to bust some of the most widespread urban legends about college and professional athletics. Each chapter takes apart a common misconception, showing how the assumptions behind it fail to add up, how these myths perpetuate themselves and, ultimately, how they serve a handful of powerful parties-- such as franchise owners, reporters, and players-- at the expense of the larger community of sports fans.
Other Names: Winfree, Jason (Jason A.), author.
