We will remember them, but should sport?

Gaining territory, a tactical advantage, physical combat, winners and losers.

Sports journalism could easily be confused with the scribblings of a war correspondent, but of course there really is no comparison between a man on the ball and a man with a gun. It’s only a matter of life or death for one of them.
