A win is a win.  Pretty or ugly, you still succeeded and beat the competiton.  After all, 2nd place is the first loser.

Mobile App Connects Sports Fans In The Crowd And On The Couch

Mobile App Connects Sports Fans In The Crowd And On The Couch | Sports Ethics: Pharr-Smith, E. | Scoop.it
The Fandium app aims to connect fans inside and around the stadium with user generated content and real-time game updates.

1. Through this article I learned that there is currently an app that is in the making that will connect the fans at the game and the fans that are watching the game from the luxury of their own houses. The app is called Fandium and the creators of the app hope that the app will be a way to make the fans that are watching the game from home feel like they are right there at the stadium experiencing the same things that those fans are. “Fandium aims to be the social destination for sports fans to get the real story from inside and around the stadium with aggregated, fan-generated content to create the ultimate game-day experience (Forbes.com).” Another interesting feature of this app is that it has “Ureport” which is a feature that allows the fan to feel like a reporter. Ureport allows the fan to post their insight on certain things that are taking place in the game and they can also post their own pictures. The app also contains play-by-play action, scores, and player stats so the user never has to leave the app to find these certain things.
2. One thing that I found interesting about this article is that is said that users can earn “fan cash” and points for the different things that they post on the Ureport. However, the fan cash doesn’t have any real value and cannot be used to purchase things. One thing that the creators of Fandium hope is that they will eventually be able to provide rewards to the users with a lot of fan cash or who have accumulated a certain amount of points. The creators hope to share with the stadiums their app to show them they can keep track of what the fans are doing while at the event. This will help because the stadium will be able to know what the consumers are doing/ buying after purchasing the tickets and entering the stadium. The creators hope that this will help them in being able to reward those users with high points and a lot of fan cash, because they hope that the stadiums will give these fans team merchandise as prizes (t-shirts, foam fingers, pictures, etc.).
3. I selected this article because I find it interesting how many sport companies are doing things through social media to attract consumers. Since the social media industry is booming now a days, using it to get your product or brand into the market is a very smart idea that all companies, not just sport companies, are doing. With the enhances in technology, reaching out to consumers through social media is a fast and effective way to be sure you are getting your company name and brand out to the target market.
4. This information will help me in the sports management industry because I will know that a good and effective way to reach certain consumers will be through social media. The creation of new apps will also help certain sporting companies reach certain consumers. All of this will help me be successful in this industry because reaching out to consumers to buy your product or use your facility is very important in making it in this business.

This article shows how money does change people in the world of sports. Athletes used to just be happy to play the game and now they will do whatever it takes to get paid more and make that money. I like the example of Ali. He was retired and out of shape yet offered a new fight and he accepted based on the money offer. It just shows that money can make up peoples minds even if their personal ethics are based on good moral intentions.

Brandon Wall's curator insight, October 19, 2014 11:01 AM

Money may really be the root of all evil!

A Glimpse into the career of Event Management

     Indy internship spawned sports management career Who: Susan Baughman, Senior Vice President Indiana Sports Corp./Executive Director 2010 Men’s Final Four People always ask me if I was an athlete growing up. I was what you would call a social athlete — not very good, but loved going to the gym and being around my friends. I was always interested in sports, but wasn’t aware that there were careers in sports management, so it never occurred to me you could make a living doing what I now do.

     I grew up in Mooresville and went to Indiana University and studied journalism, sociology and criminology. I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do, but was inter- ested in writing and publishing, so I thought working for a magazine might be a good fit. When I began to interview with magazine and book publishers, the offices were dark, with green-glow- ing LED screens — this was the early 1990s. The offices seemed quiet, and I didn’t feel like I be- longed. By luck, my college counselor told me about an internship at the 1991 World Gymnastics Championships. I had no idea what the event was about, but I was fascinated by the energy of the people working on it. When I heard about what they were planning, I thought: “I have to be part of this.” I was hired and got my first job in an industry I didn’t even know existed.

     I immediately found myself in a world I didn’t know anything about gymnastics rules, international travel, uniform protocols, thousands of volunteers and communicating with people around the world. The job turned out to be the greatest learning experience of my life. I was 21. I had budgets and people to manage. I went from knowing zero about event planning to gaining a broad understanding of how to tackle a major event: and how to organize volunteers, work with deadlines, and think through projects. During that event, I had the chance to work for:

-- Allison Melangton, now the president and CEO of Indianapolis’ 2012 Super Bowl, who showed me the importance of timelines and to pay attention to every detail.

 -- Connie Israel, who showed me the importance of respecting and relishing in the ideas of others. »

-- Jack Swarbrick, now the athletic director at the University of Notre Dame, who showed me there is no limit to what you can do if you harness the energy of the com- munity. »

-- Rick Fuson, chief operating of- ficer of Pacers Sports and Entertainment, who showed me how to inspire and get the best out of people. Their willingness to give an event novice a chance to be a leader; for them to put high expectations and pressure on me, changed my whole life. That experience was my big break.

     My job with the World Gymnastics Championships was fulltime, but temporary. When the event ended, so did my job. What I thought was going to be a one year assignment has turned into a career. When that event was over I worked for USA Gymnastics, or- ganizing national and international televised competitions all over the country.

     Since joining the Indiana Sports Corp. in 1996, I have worked on six international and world championship events, 16 NCAA events, and 21 national or Olympic events. My big break allowed me to work on exciting and notable events, but more importantly gave me the opportunity to learn from the best leaders in the sports industry who work right here in our city. — By Susan Baughman
