    Abstract

    My commentary is situated within my own field of expertise which lies within management and organization studies. This location leads me to be somewhat critical of Cruickshank et al.’s article because the authors took the decision to elide these literatures which I argue are foundational to a really nuanced, developed understanding of the phenomena explored in this study. My comments are restricted to three key areas: i) the issue of professional sports organizations being businesses and the implications of this for culture; ii) the exclusion of theory from management and organization studies literatures; and iii) a critique of methods.
