I learned that there are over 500 people are suing Madison Square Garden because they were "Wrongfully classified to avoid being paid." These people claimed that they were hired under the title of "intern" or "student associate" so they were able to do work as though they were actual employees. These interns were asked to work as much as 5 days a week working on time lengthy things such as ticket sales and administrative projects. What I found interesting is that companies find that the learning experience and new skills the interns gain out of the internship is far more valuable than any financial reward. I found that many sports and entertainment companies rely on interns to help around their company or organization for free. I chose this article because I’m from New York and MSG is my home arena. The title also grabbed my attention because this could possibly create disastrous precedent for sport industry.

Jaguars get keys to U.K. - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

Jaguars get keys to U.K. - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | Sport management | Scoop.it
The NFL is allowing the Jacksonville Jaguars to market their brand and sell commercially in the United Kingdom, becoming what is believed to be the first U.S. sports team of any league with significant overseas sales and sponsorship rights.
Garrett Fox's insight:

The NFL is allowing the Jacksonville Jaguars to market their brand and sell commercially in the United Kingdom. The Jacksonville Jaguars are believed to be the first U.S. Sport team of any league with significant overseas sales and sponsorship rights.

 They will be playing annually one game a season in London for the next 3 years, and the marketing extension is part of an effort to reshape the club as the U.K.’s “home” NFL team.

I first selected this article because the title caught my eye. “Jaguars get keys to U.K.” The Jacksonville Jaguars are an American team, so for them to market commercially in the U.K. is a big deal.

This information can help me because If I were to become a sport marketeer, I would definitely try to get at least a couple more professional sports teams to get commercially marketed overseas.

MSG rolling out new premium areas - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | Sport management | Scoop.it
Editor's note: This story has been revised from the print edition.
Garrett Fox's insight:

I learned that there is going to be a massive renovation of Madison Square Garden, and the renovation price is going to $980 million. Instead of just regular seating and box seats, their making lounge club seats, group hospitality lounges, and chase bridge seats.

What i found interesting is that before the upgrades, the 71 suites on the 10th floor of MSG were among the worst locations for skyboxes in major league sports, and many were unsold before the renovation.

I selected this article because I’m from Manhattan, NY and I knew there were renovations happening to MSG, but I didn’t have much information on it.

WNBA sees midseason upswing in TV numbers - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

WNBA sees midseason upswing in TV numbers - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | Sport management | Scoop.it
As the WNBA hits its All-Star break this weekend, the league’s “3 to See” promotion featuring its trio of high-profile rookies is bringing returns both on TV and at the gate.
Garrett Fox's insight:

I learned from this article that the average number of fans per WNBA game is 7,461. This increase was caused because of the league’s “3 to see;” Elena Delle Donne, Brittney Griner, and Skylar Diggins.  

 Through its first seven games on ESPN2, the WNBA was averaging 252,000 viewers. Because of double header between Chicago and Phoenix, with the “3 to see” this game was  the most viewed WNBA game in nine years, delivering 455,000 viewers.

I selected this article because I don’t ever really see articles about the WNBA, its mostly just NBA.
