The Ticket: Protest, Patriotism and Professionals in sport
In The Ticket Tracey Holmes wraps up the week in sport. This week:
If you’re one of those that think sport and politics shouldn’t mix, there’s a long list of politicians who claim they’re on your side; in the process putting politics right in the mix. Matt Norman speaks on a panel about Politics in Sport.
Peter Norman was a white Australian who was ostracised in his homeland and barred from the 1972 Olympic Games in Germany for backing Black Power. Forty-five years on, with NFL players damned in recent days as “sons of bitches” by the president of the United States, the nephew of a forgotten hero knows that he would have taken a knee, too.
Matt Norman of Wingman Pictures International has signed with two amazing Hollywood executives with the intention of getting the current Untitled Peter Norman feature film into production.
