Arsenal's Official Facebook Page Has Been Created! | Media and Technology in sport | Scoop.it
bappi Rahman's insight:

Social networking sites to promote sport - With billions of people around the world using social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Myspace, its very easy to promote a business/ advertise. The number of people you can reach to using such sites is a huge. What Arsenal has done to reach out of fans is to create a facebook offcial page, where anyone in the world can, talk, comment or post images to this groups to express there love for Arsenal. Arsenal's not the only football team who have created a Facebook page, Twitter or Myspace page, infact all premiership teams have got one too! as you can see, Arsenal's current 'likes' are a gob smacking 7,867,925 which is brilliant. As you can see, many people use the internet to search all sorts, so Arsenal have deffiantly made a very wise decision to create a fan page on facebook.

 

I personally think that promoting sport, business or for personal advertisment is a great idea. due to the fact that billions of people have access to the internet, its a great way of gaining publicity, or in a business case, a very easy way to advertise there mechandise etc.

Advertising in Sports Television

bappi Rahman's insight:

Television Advertising In Sport - in this article, it describes how television advertisement is used not only just to promote sport, but also promotes genral products too. I dont know if you have noticed but in every 30 minute programme there is always atleast a 5 minute break inbetween. During this 5 minute break, this is where companies gets a chance to promote there product via using the television. for example whilst watching BBC sport or other sports porgrammes, there always atleast a couple of advertisments about sports wear/ sport related equipment to interest people who are initialy watching a sports programme. this will hopfully influence people who are interested in sport to feel the urge to buy that specific item being advertise in hope that the majority of people watching will also buy that item too.

 

I personally believe that television advertisment is annoying. due to the fact that whilst watching a cricket match on the televison for example, every 5 minutes or so, the camera is constantly redirecting onto the massive advertisment banners rather the game, although i do see why advertisement is used in sporting events, but personally I find it annoying.

BBC Sport Academy | Tennis | Features | Keeping a Hawk-Eye on the action

BBC Sport Academy | Tennis | Features | Keeping a Hawk-Eye on the action | Media and Technology in sport | Scoop.it
bappi Rahman's insight:

Hawk-Eye Technology For Tennis - Tennis is a very fast pase sport, which is why hawk eye is essential peice of technology used in tennis. most people say that if hawk eye wasnt created, tennis possibly would've been the hardest sport to officaite due to the fact that players are smashing the ball up to speed 150+ MPH which is incredibly fast! in addition, not only does hawk eye gives us a better insight on where the shot actally went, it also gives us in-depth detail on where the player has hitten for example the last 10 serves, it will pass on data like this to there coaches, where they can provide the player a performance profile for the match. 

 

I personally believe that Hawk eye is a brilliant peace of teachnology, espcailly for sports such as tennis. the reason for this is because if there wasnt hawk eye in tennis, there will be so much confusion/ doubts weather if the shot was in or out.

Goal-line technology given go-ahead

Goal-line technology given go-ahead | Media and Technology in sport | Scoop.it

The Premier League has voted to introduce goal-line technology from the 2013-14 season.

bappi Rahman's insight:

Goal Line Technology For Football - The FA have decided to finally install goal line technology, aswell has hawk eye at webley stadium. With these new system's being installed, refferee's will also be given a watch, which will send a signal to the watch, and notifiy the refferee if the ball has crossed the line by sending a virbration. Many people believe by having this sort of technology put in place in football, it'll prevent 'gross injustcises'. however, there are a few people that believe putting goal line technology is a very bad idea, due to the fact that it could ruin the flow of the game by constantly looking back onto replays to get an accurate decision. although even Frank Lampard is completely with the decision of all this technology being put in place "It's a no-brainer. It's been a long time coming but they got here in the end.

 

"It's a simple thing that will bring an excitement factor when it's used. And it will give you the correct answer which I think, when it's used at this level, is so important. We need that."

 

I personally think that having both goal line technology and hawk eye in football is a brilliant idea. I think since the 2010 world cup, England Vs Germany, which ended in a 4-1 loss to england, there has been a big think weather to put this technology in place or not. Hopfully the flow of football doesnt get ruined because of this technology.

Usain Bolt signs biggest athletics sponsorship deal ever with Puma

Usain Bolt signs biggest athletics sponsorship deal ever with Puma | Media and Technology in sport | Scoop.it
Usain Bolt's new Puma contract is said to be of a similar value to that signed by Cristiano Ronaldo with Nike
bappi Rahman's insight:

Usain Bolt Sponsorship With Puma - in sport, sponsorship is deffiantly one of the most effective way to attract people to a certain thing, such as; shoes, equipment, fasion and clothing. Usain Bolt for example is sponsored by Puma, like many other athletes, but Puma believe that Usain Bolt will be there greatest ever partnership deal ever. In the sporting industry when you get to a high level in your feild of sport, you'll begin to have companies sponsoring you, this means you'll have to sign a contrat, where you can only wear a certain brand of clothing. This means that when fans are watching athletics and they see Usain Bolt run, they are more than likely going to buy what Usain Bolt has.

 

I personally believe that by allowing athletes to be sponsored by big sporting brands such as nike, addidas, puma and new balance etc. I'm personally a massve fan of Usain Bolt, i deffinatly pay close attention to what he wears, which influences me to buy more puma gear, espcailly for athletics.

Hawk-Eye aims for football expansion

Hawk-Eye aims for football expansion | Media and Technology in sport | Scoop.it
UK-based Hawk-Eye is aiming to expand into other football leagues after agreeing a deal with the Premier League on Thursday.
bappi Rahman's insight:

Hawk-Eye Technology For Football - There are mixed views on this subject, weather using 'hawk eye' in football is a good or bad idea. many believe that hawk eye should've been put in place a long time ago, due to the fact that a few matches in the past where there has been a scenrio where a team has attempted the goal but not counted because of poor officaiting. An example of this was the England Vs Germany world cup 2010, where Frank Lampard shot, but wasnt counted as a goal. however, a few people bellieve that hawk eye isnt a great idea because they think that it'll ruin the flow of the game. 

 

I personally believe that having the hawk eye would be a brilliant tool to have for football because there have been so many occasions where goals havent been counted, but when watched on the replay's, they should've been counted as a goal. however, i think it should only be used in situations like that, if used often during a match, I do believe it'll get quite iritating and ruin the flow of the game.
