The NFL dominates Forbes' list of the 50 most valuable sports franchises with 30 teams making the cut, but the front of the pack is ruled by European soccer clubs.
Devin Dessormeau's insight:
This article shows me that the soccer industry creates a lot of revenue and spends a ton of money. The most interesting thing that I found was that Real Madrid spends $42 million a year on the Adidas jerseys that they wear. That number is absolutely crazy, 42 million dollars on jerseys, shorts, socks, and shoes for the players on their team. I selected this article because I wanted to learn about getting involved with the most valuable sports teams, whether it be around the world or just in the United States, working for one of the most valuable teams anywhere would be a life long dream come true. Who doesn’t want to work for a valuable team?
This information will help me because in order to get a job with one of these valuable sports teams, I know I need to market myself and create the absolute best possible resume that I can in order to make myself look good. There is a lot of work to be done, but it all starts today.
Twitter set to transform sports viewing habits in America.
Devin Dessormeau's insight:
Twitter is clearly a worldwide phenomenon that now is reaching the sports industry. Through this article I learned how sports and twitter are working together to give fans a better viewing option. Through twitter, people can now stay updated on their favorite teams with just a quick click of the “follow” button. Many organizations use twitter to promote themselves and get themselves known. The most interesting thing that I found was how ESPN is using tweets from random followers, using hash tags and other methods, ESPN chooses these tweets to put on Sportscenter and other shows. But the most interesting part is that they share the money made from these tweets. Not only does ESPN profit, twitter also profits, and even the distributor makes a profit. I selected this article because I am an avid twitter user; I check it hourly, to keep updated on my friends back at home, and those who are in college. It is a great way to stay connected with people without actually talking to them over the phone or in person. Now with the twitter usage in the sports industry, it is one more reason for me to choose this article because I have played sports for as long as I can remember, and now I can stay updated with my favorite teams and players, so I figured I should learn a little bit more on how twitter is getting intertwined with sports.
I believe this information will help me in the sports management field because just from the tweeting and social media, there are so many job opportunities that can come from that. You can market through social media, you can meet people through social media, you never know how it can help you, which is part of the beauty of twitter and all other social media. It is growing into something much more than just millions of random tweets every minute, it’s bigger than that and it would be something that I would love to be a part of on an everyday basis as a job.
The sports, countries, sponsors and methodology behind Forbes annual ranking of the world's 100 highest-paid athletes.
Devin Dessormeau's insight:
This article is such an interesting article; there is so much to learn about money and how it controls our world. I learned that baseball has the most well paid players out of every other sport. This isn’t exactly new to me, I had an idea that baseball pays the most to their athletes, but I didn’t realize that 27 out of the top 100 biggest salaries, were baseball players, the next closest sport was basketball with 21, which also was a little bit of a surprise to me. The most interesting fact that I found from this article though, was one that shouldn’t come as such a surprise, but when looking at the numbers, it truly is. Nike sponsors 51 of the top 100 highest paid athletes. Every year, Tiger Woods and LeBron James get paid over $20 million a year just through endorsements with Nike putting them both in the top five highest paid athletes. Money rules the world, and that’s why I chose this article. Everybody loves money, that’s a fact. Unfortunately sometimes money takes control of us and makes us do things that we regret. I would like to see how each of these 100 athletes chooses to spend all that money that they make. Obviously millions go towards houses and cars and all that fun stuff, but I want to see where the rest of it goes.
This article will certainly help me in the sports management industry because like I keep saying, money rules everything, and in the sports industry money is a huge factor. Almost every morning on ESPN you can almost guaranty that you will hear something regarding money, whether it be a fine that somebody got, or yet another contract signing worth 184 million dollars over a 12 year period. The numbers are crazy, reading it is an eye opener, and that’s why it was such a good article.
