Punishment in Sport

Having only recently invented Sports Criminology lets now investigate Sports Penology - that is how are sports people punished on the field and, increasingly, off.

The Economist's Game Theory Blog has this interesting piece .  They don't really investigate, or even use the terms, 'penalty' or 'punitiveness' but any criminologists should reflect that many of the discussions we have about the high incarceration rate of the USA and low ones for Scandinavian Countries or Japan are also applicable in sport.
