Internet and sportsPeople have been playing, watching and betting on sports for thousands of years but the past 30 years have seen the world of sport change like never before. It’s not that we’re playing games that differently or that more people are participating, it’s because the internet has revolutionized our whole relationship with them. It has opened up a host of new opportunities, to check results, read informed comment, and to watch sport, and has made the various sports accessible to more people than ever before.

All the details

Miss them and you had to wait for the next broadcast, phone around your friends or go out in search of more information. Now you can get results online as soon as a game is finished or watch them stream in point by point. There’s a tremendous amount of detail available and it’s up to you to decide whether or not you want insights and opinions to go along with it.

      The Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month is the only football player ever to capture college football’s top individual award twice.

After fumbling in his only carry of his first game, Griffin more than made up for it in his second game by rushing for 237 yards against North Carolina. By the end of the season, Griffin had rushed for 867 yards.
