Shame and the sports fan
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Philosophy.
2019 (English)In: Journal of the Philosophy of Sport, ISSN 0094-8705, E-ISSN 1543-2939, Vol. 46, no 2, p. 208-223Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Sports fans sometimes feel shame for their team's moral transgressions. In this paper, we investigate this phenomenon. We offer an account of sports fan shame in terms of collective shame. We argue that this account is superior to accounts of sports fan shame in terms of shame for others and shame for oneself. We then argue that accepting the role that sports stars play in bringing about the collective shame amongst their fans provides a new way of justifying the claim that sport stars are subject to special moral obligations.
