This paper represents the views of two scholars in the USA with respect to the scholar lecture presented by David Kirk at the 2012 BERA - Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy (PESP) Special Interest Group meeting. We discuss how two unique features of the American universities have an impact on both the corporate nature of our work and our scholarship. These features are described as 'the notion of outreach scholarship' and the 'nature of giving.' In addition, we discuss our different situations and how they affect our ability to do the best academic work. We can, and by consequence, give our best efforts to resist the hegemony of corporatization.
