From the Archives – Soccer and Symbolic Interaction

The football (soccer) World Cup in Brazil has just started, so I thought I look through the Symbolic Interaction archives and see what I find in terms of ‘football/soccer’. With Herbert Blumer having been a professional footballer, ie American footballer, I though tSymbolic Interactionists may have a particular interest in soccer or football. Here are a few papers related to football, soccer, or sport I found in the archives. I am sure there are more. Please post them in the comments!
