Orlando City sets up for its shot at MLS - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

Orlando City sets up for its shot at MLS - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | Sport Management 2 | Scoop.it
A pair of votes in the coming weeks on the financing of a new soccer stadium in Orlando may be the only thing standing in the way of Orlando City SC obtaining an MLS expansion franchise.
Cameron Corey's insight:

     From this article I learned that it takes a lot more than registering to join a league. There is all kinds of funding work that has to take place, they look and see where and who they are getting the money from, if they have a fanbase that would support such a team. There is a whole support league that is beneath the MLS and that is where a lot of these potential teams like Orlando FC that is in the article are coming from. I also didnt realize that there had been so many failed MLS teams before, there were all kinds of teams that had only been in the league a few years and they fell apart.

     I found it interesting that they are still adding teams to the MLS. All of the other leagues in the US for the most part are set in their ways, but the MLS is planning to expand to 24 teams in the next few years, with other teams like NYCFC which is a team co owned by the yankees and Manchester City FC.

     I selected this article becuase of all the aspects that go into a league expansion as well as my interest in the sport overall. I think that the expansion of the MLS is an extremely interesting topic and something i would highly consider as a proffession later on. I also picked it because I saw that the owner said that he would like to make it Brazil's team in the USA. i thought this was an interesting statement because of how America started in the first place, as a country of imigrants. Many of the imigrants from Brazil go to Orlando so there is a very large Brazilian fan base there, hopefully one enough to support a soccer team. I though that this model was an interesting ones because of all the different nationality and if the other teams in the MLS could somehow give their team the kind of solidarity that he is trying to give his team they could try and achieve a type of nationalism within their reigon in support of their soccer team. 

      This information can help me in my future because if i plan to enter the sports management there will be all soirts of problems with funding and other issues that mirror the ones that a team trying to enter the league will face. There are board issues that will be addressed there are event management sponsorship deals and player contracts to consider all with this new expansion.

FA Chair Greg Dyke Says Introduction Of New Technology For Referees Inevitable - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | Sport Management 2 | Scoop.it
FA Chair Greg Dyke said it is inevitable that further technology will be introduced to help referees, predicting video reviews would be utilized for fouls and other close calls, according to Owen Gibson of the London GUARDIAN.  FIFA  has allowed the...
Cameron Corey's insight:

      It is common knowledge that technology is used frequently in American sports today to review controversial plays and such. It was interesting to learn that this is not the case in Europe and the World of soccer. In Europe there is a dispute that the use of technology to review controversial plays and goals would drastically slow down the game. This problem is resulting in fans of the games as well as executives from wihin the sport rejecting the advances in technology. Although they have allowed goal line technology they are reluctant to explore other uses for tchnology within the sport.

      I found that the fact that they were concerned with the impact on the flow of the game interesting because in the USA we dont really think about that. In reality when it was first introduced there must have been some sort of rebellion at first but today we just consider it part of the game. I think that if they begin to inroduce some sort of video replay in the game the fans as well as the players will eventually get used to it like they have in the united states.

     I selected this article because it is my ultimate gial and dream to one day work in the soccer industry. Therefore if i really want to persue this goal i should stay up to date with the things that will be changing the industry. Technology is one of those aspects that will undoubtanly be abig part of the industry in the years to come just as the article says.

     This information will help me in the sports management industry because it shows the types of changes that will be occurring in the field in the years to come. it also outlines the type of resistance that I will be up against if i suggest this type of change or one similar to it.

Issue Of Whether To Pay College Athletes Explored In Time Magazine Cover Story - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

Issue Of Whether To Pay College Athletes Explored In Time Magazine Cover Story - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | Sport Management 2 | Scoop.it
The allegations surrounding Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel prior to the start of the college football season teed up a debate that has been simmering for decades but is now more intense than ever, according to a cover story by Sean Gregory of TIME.
Cameron Corey's insight:

     In the world of college sports the big name first division football teams bring in a lot of income for the college. It is the players on these teams that in part make them so good. Therefore they are part of what makes them so much money, so it is only fair that if proffessional players get to make money playing in a very similar structure that they also be able to. Even if they arent being paid by the colleges it is easy to let them do commercials or get sponsors. This would allow them compensation for the already full time football jobs as well as give them money for the extra empenses that we all know college doesnt pay for. 

     I found it interesting that even though they have such big names yet they are not allowed to cash in on any of their worldwide fame. I thought this was interesting because of the fact that the college has so much control over who sponsors them. If some random person at the college was famous they would recieve money from things like that, so why is the fact that they play football any different? these questions are interesting topics for smeone in the sports management field to discuss.

     I selected the article because I am interested in sponsorships and player deals and this issue is a big one in that field right now. How they decide to resolve this one could very much change the ability for athletic companies and such to market and make money. I have also been watching more college football since i have been at college so this topic has also been very much in the forefront of what the kids here are watching and talking about.

     This information will help me in many different respects. If i decide to go into the sponsorship part of the sports management field it is a good example of what a new marketing opportunity looks like and why it is so important to always be looking for them. It is also helpful if i develope an interest in collegiate athletics because it says a lot about the differences between collegate and proffessional sports and the sponsorship opportunities for both.
