Abstract: From the outset of this paper we are forthright in stating that there are misconceptions about the use of critical theory in some academic and sport management circles. These misconceptions are apparently pessimistically grounded in radical critiques of academic society. We argue, however, throughout that critical theory should be seen as profoundly optimistic and of use in the future research traditions of sport management.
