Give clubs a sporting chance

The drugs scandal engulfing top sporting clubs has revealed one of the great challenges facing not-for-profit administrators. As clubs become more corporatised, administrators lose touch with the rank and file, and the concerns they might divulge.

How much blame should be put on the boards of the sporting bodies that have plunged into dangerous drug territory?

I believe that the structural problems, which have emerged in our top sporting clubs, have a similarity with what can happen and has happened in top schools.
