Coaching - Managing the Risks - Part 2

This video will assist coaches to identify the risks within their sport and develop strategies to minimise risks to themselves and their athletes.
Kevin Porter's insight:

Good video about the risks that come along with coaching and also with the players.  Coaching is essential to sports success and in every sport there is a coach.  The coach needs to understand that they are liable for the care and health of their athletes.  They need to make sure that their team is safe at all times, and they are held to a standard based on the level of coaching that they are doing.

Assessing Risk in Sport By K.Patel

This is my assessment on assessing risks in outdoor and indoor facilities.
Kevin Porter's insight:

This is a pretty basic video of risk management which looks like it might have been part of a school assignment.  But the video goes over the possible risk factors when operating both indoor and outdoor sports facilities.

Broncos remind fans: Only clear bags allowed into stadium - The Denver Channel

Broncos remind fans: Only clear bags allowed into stadium
The Denver Channel
The NFL adopted the policy after last season, in part because of the bombing at the Boston Marathon.

Via daniel donnelly
Kevin Porter's insight:

New rules and regulations adopted by the NFL are being enforced around the league.  One of the big changes is the bag policy at the stadium.  I personally attended a NFL game at the Broncos stadium in 2013, and I was permitted to bring my black backpack in the stadium with me.  I would no longer be able to do that if I went to a game this past season.  Clear bags are the only kind permitted at the stadium.  This is a result of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Geobrugg AG: FENCEBOX® - the roll-out and roll-back crowd management system

Geobrugg's FENCEBOX® houses a ready-to-use rollaway fence of up to 50 running meters with a height 2 m for temporary fencing and crowd control at sporting ev...
Kevin Porter's insight:

This is a really interesting form of crowd control for sporting events.  It is a fence that can be rolled out up to 50 meters and is about 2 meters in height.  This method might be a little more accepted at events overseas as I don't really see the United States using this.  Either way it is really interesting!

Kevin Porter's insight:

A good Question/Answer article with a Professor at Kennesaw State University.  They talk about the different pros and cons of subsidies and how a team could end up affecting the city that it is located in.  This article also has a video attachment.

Are You Taking a Risk at Sports Events?

When you buy a ticket to a sporting event and take your seat you might be asking for trouble. Knowing how the law looks at assuming the risk of injury at spo...
Kevin Porter's insight:

Really good, short video about who assumes the risk and liability at sporting events.  He talks about two different types of incidents that could happen at a game.  He differentiates between assuming risk from the sporting event in which the ticket was purchased for and also about other risks that pose a threat to injury at the event.  Be smart at sporting events and know what you are responsible for.  Know that there is a possibility that you could be injured and know that you are responsible for assuming that risk.

Kevin Porter's insight:

Interesting article about the past, present, and future of ticket marketing for sporting events.  The article examines the ways sports teams go about their marketing of ticket sales.  People are buying tickets on the internet now more than ever.  Sports Marketers are able to do more research and use more data in order to determine ticket pricing and availability.  This was harder to do in the past, but with the increase in technology, teams are more likely to move this new direction.

Tickets, Please?: The Athletic Administrator and Box Office ... | Sports Facility Management | Scoop.it
This detailed article describes how an athletic administrator should operate a ticket office, including preparing for a contest, game day management and postgame procedures.
Kevin Porter's insight:

This article is applicable to myself personally because I hope to possibly become an athletic administrator in the future.  The article talks about the importance of the athletic director and how they might at times have to wear 'multiple hats'.  Another important factor in high school sports is determining different ways to generate revenue for the school from athletic events and through fundraising.

UAB sports subsidies from university decreased as student fees ...

For the first time in at least eight years, UAB's total subsidies for sports decreased. Less institutional funding was needed due to South Carolina and Ohio.
Kevin Porter's insight:

University of Alabama-Birmingham's total subsidies were decreased because of a combination of student fees increasing and income from the sports department.  Typically in college sports, when a team plays away games, they are compensated from the host university. This past year, UAB had scheduled games against schools that were offering compensation.  This is a good thing for the university and reflects well on the scheduling of the Athletic Department.

Tax-Exempt NFL Paid Commissioner $44.2 Million in 2012

Tax-Exempt NFL Paid Commissioner $44.2 Million in 2012 | Sports Facility Management | Scoop.it
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made $44.2 million in 2012, according to tax returns the league has submitted. Goodell earned $35.1 million in salary, bonus and pension compensation.
Kevin Porter's insight:

Interesting article.  I had no idea that the NFL's league compensation committee determined how much commissioner Roger Goodell should be paid each year.  The owners who are the ones on the committee felt that Goodell should be the highest paid commissioner, who was traditionally Bud Selig of the MLB.
