San Francisco Giants And Boston Celtics Recognized In Sports Illustrated's 'Twitter 100' List

San Francisco Giants And Boston Celtics Recognized In Sports Illustrated's 'Twitter 100' List | new sm articles | Scoop.it
Sports Illustrated recognizes the Boston Celtics and San Francisco Giants as the best teams to follow on Twitter.
Taylor Kuegel's insight:

1) I learned that social media is a big part of the sports industry. The San Francisco Giants and the Boston Celtics were named “twitters top 100” in Sports Illustrated. They are the top followed by fans and they tweet the biggest news about their teams and players.

 

 

2) What I found interesting was that San Francisco’s media director, Bryan Srabian, lives and breathes social media and he says “Having the most engaged MLB fan base means more than anything else; that is a World Series trophy in social media.” I think that is very interesting because it shows how important it is to be popular on social media.

 

 

3) I selected this article because twitter is probably the biggest social website right now and anything said on twitter is seen by almost everyone, even if you have a twitter or not, major tweets end up being talked about on the radio, or shown on the television. There is major publicity on twitter.

 

4) This will help me in the sports management industry because just by being publicized on twitter is important and realizing that social media is an important aspect of being in the sports management industry.

New Partnership Indicates FSTA Is Warming To 'Daily Fantasy Sports' | new sm articles | Scoop.it
(Photo credit: Wikipedia) Last week, Fantasy Sports Trade Association president Paul Charchian announced a new partnership between his company, LeagueSafe, and the daily fantasy sports website DraftKings.  This venture marks a notable change in the...
Taylor Kuegel's insight:

1) I learned that there is a new partnership between the compnay LeagueSafe and the daily fantasy sport website Draftkings. At first LeagueSasfe was not much of a fan of the fantasy sports website. Also recently a handful of wealthy private equity firms have invested into the daily fantasy sports websites. 

 

2) What I found interesting was that there are still two private lawsuits against daily fantasy sports winners in Illinois. Both the lawsuits plan to use Illinois state gambling law to help with their case because they can argue that their winnings are promoting illegal gambling proceeds. 

 

3) I chose this article because fantasy sports have become really popular throughout these past years and my father has a fantasy team that he plays with his friends so I was curious as to what the news had to say about the new upcoming laws and changes. 

 

4) This information will help me in the sports management industry because fantasy teams are becoming very popular and people enjoy being a part of a team. And it is important to know what the market wants and enjoys to do within the sports industry.

Madison Square Garden Intern Lawsuit Could Create Disastrous Precedent For Sports Industry

Madison Square Garden Intern Lawsuit Could Create Disastrous Precedent For Sports Industry | new sm articles | Scoop.it
The World's Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden (MSG), has become the latest company to be targeted in a class action by former interns claiming they were wrongly classified to avoid being paid.
Taylor Kuegel's insight:

1) I learned that there are over 500 + people sueing Madison Square Garden because they were "Wrongfully classfied 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. This suit goes as far back as unpaid wages since 2007.  

 

2) I found interesting that many sports and entertainment companies rely on interns to help around their company or organization for free. Also that the companies find that the learning experience and new skills the interns gain out of the internship are far more valuable than any financial reward. One other thing I found interesting was that many scucessful companies in the sport business were started with the aide of interns that were willing to volunteer.  

 

3) I chose this article because I wanted to read about the interns and internships. Right now at Endicott we are focusing on trying to find an internship for this year during the winter break and it is important to learn about them and realize what they entail and that the companies actually do rely on their interns. 

 

 4) This information will help me in the sports management industry in the manner that when I am looking for a job having an internship before is very helpful and realizing that all interns do not get paid. Also It will help me from the other side of the spectrum that if my business that I worked for had an intern realizng that they are needed and important but to make sure they are aware of their position and the benefits they will and will not recieve.
