Ryan McKenna's curator insight, October 15, 2014 8:39 AM

This article helps to show that it is very important to keep all that attend a specific event safe. As the number of attendees grow, the risk grows as well. It is very important to make sure that having the right people to help control the crowds because if not then things can get very out of hand. I chose this article because it helps to show that there are all different aspects of the sport management industry. Not everything is just about the people playing and the coaches. There are a lot of other jobs that can be just as important as and even maybe more important then the big major titles. I thought this article was interesting because I never really thought about how much planning went into the security and people who keep others safe at sporting events. You just see them and don't rely think much past that. This helps with the sport management industry because it shows the other smaller jobs that are just important. Many jobs which may seem like the person is not doing anything, but actually having to be on guard at all times to help make sure the event runs smoothly.

This part of Sports Management has gotten huge because gone are the days of an "Owner" and we currently live in the time were their are a collective group of owners that gather together and collectively run a franchise. This brings the question of does this type of ownership detert from the overall sense of customer service for the fan base ? or does this become more about profits?

So much has changed in the quality of security all over the country in light of terroist attacks over the last century. Security in sports facilities is no exception.

Joshua Evans's curator insight, January 17, 2014 10:13 AM

Security can never be thorough enough. At an event like a game, there are thousands of potential victims if a terrorist attack happens. Always think security. 

Jason Cain's curator insight, March 22, 2014 10:47 PM

Security has been as important as the teams that are playing since the 9/11 attacks on the United States. It is important to keep everyone safe especially in large crowds where attacks would involve a lot of people at one time.

It takes a team of dedicated managers and staff to ensure these sporting events go as planned. Sports management is very necessary!

Jason Cain's curator insight, March 22, 2014 10:50 PM

This article discusses all the jobs that are involved when having a large arena. This would also be helpful when the subsidy issue is argued against. An arena does create jobs for the community. One may be surprised just how many.
