MLB Owners Approve Funding For Expanded Instant Replay, Which Could Begin In '14 - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

MLB Owners Approve Funding For Expanded Instant Replay, Which Could Begin In '14 - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | sports | Scoop.it
MLB on Thursday took another step towards implementing expanded instant replay with unanimous approval of funding at the league's quarterly Owners Meetings, according to Paul Hagen of MLB.com.
Daniel Kelly's insight:

1. I learned that MLB is finally taking the concept of instant replay seriously. Due to traditionalist behavior we have not seen a serious want for expansion until now where there was a unanimous vote.

2. Something I found interesting was the comment about how a particular writer was going to miss the manager running out to the mound and making a big scene. It raises a valid point as that is typically a momentum mover in games and will not have the same affect anymore.

3. I selected this article because I was intrigued about how Selig was going to accomplish this task. Baseball is notorious for its 'traditionalists' in which they do not even like to see the game change at all i.e. the designated hitter.

4. This will help me in the world of sports management because it opens up job opportunities in the data to be collected as well as advances the game to the 21st century.

NBA Kings Unveil "Indoor-Outdoor" Concept For New Downtown Arena - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | sports | Scoop.it
The NBA Kings yesterday unveiled an 'indoor-outdoor' concept they’re planning for the team’s new downtown arena, according to Kasler, Lillis & Bizjak of the SACRAMENTO BEE.
Daniel Kelly's insight:

1. I learmed after this proposal of a new downtown Sacremento arema along with their new minority owner in Shaq, that the ownernship group will be making a serious push to stay in Sacremento as opposed to moving to a place like Seattle.

2. I found their indoor-outdoor concept very interesting and possibly ground breaking. With the possibility of an additional 10,000 seats if the final product works well we will most likely be looking at the new kind of arena we will see everywhere.

3. I selected this article because the title of the article made me curious on how such indoor outdoor stadium would work.

4. This information will help me in the sports industry because if this concept works out and this becomes the new type of stadium there will be lots of job opportunities in designing and adapting current stadiums to fit this new notion.

2. I found it interesting that the US had four members in the IOC. I had first thought that was low, but after further research I found out there are only 100 members. This gives the use a 4% say in events that has well over 100 countries participating in it.

3. I selected this article because the Olympics are the biggest sporting events in the World. The election of a new president is big news because one never knows what his plans may be to expand and enhance the Olympic experience.
Daniel Kelly's comment, September 12, 2013 6:07 PM
4. Bach was partially elected based off his idea to start an Olympic TV channel. That leads to a lot of possibilities for job opportunities as a TV network requires a lot of people to run it.

2. I found the concept of a Champions League Matchup vs the best of the NHL vs the best of Europe amazing and would be a huge hit. This could lead to a much bigger NHL viewing audience.

3. I selected this article because any time a business is trying to increase revenue by a billion in just three years time it's going to turn some heads.
Daniel Kelly's comment, September 11, 2013 1:51 PM
4. This is going to help me in the sports industry because when there is expansion there are job opportunities.

NFL Strikes Large-Scale Deal With Twitter To Share Highlights, Other Material - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

NFL Strikes Large-Scale Deal With Twitter To Share Highlights, Other Material - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | sports | Scoop.it
The NFL and Twitter have struck a large-scale deal for the league to be part of Amplify, Twitter's emerging advertising platform.
Daniel Kelly's insight:

1. I learned that the NFL has struck a deal with an increasingly popular social media site that will only increase exposure and revenue for already the highest grossing sport in America.

2. I found it interesting that they are going to integrate a lot of fantasy information with this new deal. This could perhaps lead to a higher use of fantasy users for the NFL website as opposed to the more popular leagues on a ESPN or Yahoo.

3. I selected it because not only do I enjoy the NFL but I'm also an avid twitter user and was curious to what their deal would pertain to.

4. This will help me in the sports industry because it leaves many options for advertising with major sports leagues through social media.

Emmert: NCAA To Revisit Stipends, But No Support For Concept Of Paying Athletes - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

Emmert: NCAA To Revisit Stipends, But No Support For Concept Of Paying Athletes - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | sports | Scoop.it
NCAA President Mark Emmert yesterday said that the organization's leadership is likely to revive as early as spring 2014 the issue of so-called $2,000 'stipends' for athletes at Division I full-scholarship universities, according to Rich Kirchen of...
Daniel Kelly's insight:

1. I learned that the NCAA will most likely allow paying of some collegiate athletes in the near future.

2. I found it interesting that the NCAA Board of Directors has actually twice approved the paying of athletes these stipends but back tracked after the fear of 160 of the 350 schools blocking the proposal.

3. I selected this article because I am of the opinion that these athletes deserve to get paid for their services. These athletes generate a lot of revenue for the NCAA and deserve a piece of that profit.

4. This will help me in the sports industry because it shows again there is talk of the 'super division'. Rumors have swirlled around that the NCAA would consider allowing the SEC, ACC, BIG 10, BIG 12, and Pac 12 to break off into one big super division in which they would initally pay male football and basketball players. A new division allows for a lot of open job opportunities on boards and other various positions.

2. I found it interesting that such a bold move would even be attempted. With our current technology they must have known that they would be caught cheating.
Daniel Kelly's comment, September 12, 2013 5:46 PM
3. I selected this article because I knew the Chase for the Cup was ending and something like race manipulation could have huge consequences for those trying to make it.
Daniel Kelly's comment, September 12, 2013 5:47 PM
4.This will help me in the sports industry because the NASCAR is a high grossing sport in America and there could be possible job opportunities in monitoring the communications between the driver and crew.
