Thulani Serero Bafana Bafana suspension

The South African Football Players Union (SAFPU) have hit out at SAFA over their treatment of Thulani Serero.
Chevawn's Tut Group's insight:

This article is about Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund claiming that serero faked his injury in order to be fresh for his club’s .This is because Serero made himself unavailable for the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Botswana due to injury and he was suspended.This questions the notion of ethics,Serero was suspended without  being given a  chance to give his side of the story.This is also  wrong because he is being accused without evidence.

The good, the quotas and the Rooney Rule

The good, the quotas and the Rooney Rule | Mainstream Sports | Scoop.it
Cricket South Africa have introduced an “incentive-based transformation policy” at base level for most of its teams.
Chevawn's Tut Group's insight:

This article discusses a new incentive to increase black participation in cricket by implementing a different "form" of a quota system. Cricket South Africa stated they are going to give franchises that have an African player that plays for 70% of the matches, will be "reimbursed" with the average cost of the qualified black African players.

 

The argument is that the way in which Cricket South Africa is trying to increase black participation, is gone about the wrong way and it can be viewed as a form of discrimination as well; even though the intentions behind this policy are good. One can say South African Sport is trying to create diversity in sports which is a good thing but it seems like this matter is being forced. Players need to be picked out of ability and not race. Although equality of opportunity is trying to be achieved here because of the legacy of apartheid.

Chevawn's Tut Group's insight:

This article desribes, how an American baseball player(Roland Hermond) was ready to retire from baseball altogether because of poor preformance and mentality, but after teaming up with a psychologist, he was not only able to deal with his mental issues, but also reach his peak preformance through affirmations and a healthier mindset.

This article is important, as it indicates that preformance is not just based on strength and physical training, but also mental prefromance.

CSA splash cash for quotas

CSA splash cash for quotas | Mainstream Sports | Scoop.it
Cricket South Africa have opted for the carrot rather than the stick to boost the number of top-tier black African cricketers.
Chevawn's Tut Group's insight:

This article is about quotas in cricket. CSA is now implimenting a rule that in the six SA cricket franchises, at least two black Africans must be fielded. They are offering financial incentive by saying that if two black Africans are picked for at least 70 percent of fixtures then CSA will pay the salaries of the two players. Haroon Lorgat, CSA chief executive, says that this is part of a drive to create a more representative SA cricket team. Only five black Africans have played in SA cricket in the past 22 years.

An article about the SA cricket crisis. Neil Manthorp discusses the financial situation of SA and other countries and their heavy reliance on India. India has suggested that they may cut short their tour of SA at the end of this year. This would have huge financial impacts for the SA cricketers and could lead to serious problems fo CSA.

Sport Stadiums in South Africa

Chevawn's Tut Group's insight:

Wow, South Africa has built quite a number of stadiums.

 

The article gives the history of the different stadiums in the different provinces.

 

However, when reading this, I realised that we don't have a built world-class facility for swimming? Do we even host swimming competitions on a regional or national bases in South Africa. If so, where do these swimmers swim?

 

Essentially, if South Africa is being partial to certain mainstream sports does that not defeat the point of having diversity.

 

Back on to the stadiums, if you planning to write on cricket, rugby or soccer, this article gives nice round ups of past matches.

This article is written by one of South Africa’s prime batsmen and T20 captain Faf du Plessis. It is naturally attention grabbing simply because of the fact that it is written by Du Plessis. It gives the reader insight on the professional and personal experiences of Du Plessis. What makes it even more interesting is the fact he also mentions he’s teammates who are cricket professionals from other countries and gives the reader a different more personal perspective of them.

Jordaan spent his first week as the new Safa boss spelling out how he plans to save SA soccer Danny Jordaan talks tough.
Chevawn's Tut Group's insight:

This article is based on the plans that Danny Jordaan, newly appointed president of the South African Football Association, has planned for the association and South African soccer. In addition to his plans, it gives an elaborate description of Jordaan's journey and this in itself makes it a great roundup article that is also in the form of an update from his appointment into his new office. This article will be a good read for every South African to validate that regardless of the multiple lacking and unskilled leaders we have in our country, there are well experienced and well-deserving leaders who commit to their leadership roles like Danny Jordaan. This article is also great as it uses different and interactive forms of data too. This is reflected by the graphic used and the recording of the conference used which when listened too reflects Danny Jordaan's serious character and plans.

However Kalmer has not given up as she is training still and the injury has boosted her confidence and is working even harder.

It mentions that they aim to sport businesses with tourism industries to promote better coverage, maybe? This could pontentially affect sponsorship as well and international meddling into South African sports

What interest me is Pillay's mention of "the new 'sports' trends", what does she mean by this? Does it mean that they are going to incorporate new sports through the interaction of global and local?

The Sports convention will be happening from the October 22-24.

Chevawn's Tut Group's insight:

Moneyweb helps breakdown the amount each mainstream sports player is able to earn.

 

Females will struggle to get recognition, success and sponsorship in sports unless they are exceptionals in recognised mainstream sport.

 

Most parents and schools prefer to integrate the the top three sports: soccer, rugby and cricket. This is because the pay, the sponsorship and the success of it is high in South Africa.

 

The article mentions how much a sport player earns when achieving a medal at the Olympics.

 

Money is one of the important factors in players' performance and their motivation towards their sport.

This article also addresses one of the issues that we identified as a trend in main stream sport of players choosing to play oversees.
