Internationally, very little research has been done into peer aggression and victimization in sports clubs. For this exploratory study, 98 coaches from various sports were interviewed in depth about their views on peer aggression and victimization and their ways of handling these issues. To put the coaches’ views and practices in perspective, they were contrasted with those of a reference group of 96 elementary school teachers and analyzed qualitatively. The interviews demonstrated that sports coaches currently were unaware of the construct of peer aggression, were unable to estimate the actual extent of peer aggression and victimization at their clubs, and were likely to overestimate their own impact, control, and effectiveness in handling the issue. This study underlines the need for coaches to develop their skills in recognizing and handling peer aggression and victimization and the need to develop sports-club-specific observation instruments and peer aggression programs.

The article presents a theoretical discussion of the entertainment value inherent to viewing televised sports. By combining different theories that consider sports events and television as essentially presentational symbolic forms, sports as a game phenomenon, and sports events as rituals, one obtains a more elaborate understanding of the potential attractions related to watching sports. The author argues that because of the very nature of sports, it becomes crucial to give prominence to a conception of the audience as active and meaning producing. In order to understand and acquire knowledge about both these meaning-producing processes, and the more general significance of televised sports, a comprehensive, rather than a purely individual, approach is required. Knowledge sharing and discussion of the implications of the acts on the field are, among various social groups, as important as the viewing experience itself.
