The league's popular live look-in program draws some viewers away from the network telecasts, but it keeps fans hooked on the NFL.

1. I actually learned a lot in this article. “NFL Red Zone” is causing people to not watch CBS and FOX, but instead just watch the games during scoring chances and skipping over the commercials. FOX and CBS pay the NFL millions of dollars to show their games, but the NFL’s own channel is taking away views.
2. I found it all interesting. I didn’t know how much a company paid for a commercial during a regular season game. I also didn’t know how many people had NFL’s Red Zone in their house.
3. I selected this article because football is a very big thing in the United States. The NFL makes a big chunk of their money from TV rights but there is going to be a problem because people don’t want to watch the same commercials over and over again. They want to watch football.
4. I can learn from this if am ever involved in television rights of a major professional league. People don’t want to watch commercials, unless its the Super Bowl, but they only want to watch games and the goals,runs or touchdowns.

1. In this article I learned that the Jay-Z owns less the one percent of the Brooklyn Nets and the Barclay Center, yet he is going to get over a million dollars for his share. I think this is outrageous. Just because his name is Jay-Z, he gets the limelight for “owning” the Nets when in reality he is a nobody on the ownership scale.
2. I found this whole article interesting. I’ve been tracking the Nets since they moved to my hometown of Brooklyn and this is a big part of them. Jay-Z helped the Nets move to Brooklyn and he influenced a lot of the things they do.
3. I selected this article because I find it very interesting. I love the Nets, so I want to keep track of whats going on with them. I also like to hear about the money in this business. They play with so much many that its something to be in awe about.
4. This will help me because I know how much a share in a team could cost. If I want to be a part owner of a team I will need to make a whole lot of money.

1. This article talked about Tim Tebow and why the Jacksonville Jaguars should not sign him. This article didn’t really teach me anything I didn’t know already. I just like how they talk about it from more of a business stand point.
2. I found all of it interesting. Football is one of my favorite sports and I always love to see what people have to say about Tim Tebow.
3. I selected this article because the NFL is a business and Tim Tebow is a huge seller but no one wants to pick him up. Tim Tebow’s presence on a team sells tickets and jerseys. The LA Kiss, an AFL team, is after Tim Tebow. They know he will be a hit in the AFL and they will make a lot of money.
4. If I ever reach the high front office job of a pro sports team, I should make a team that will win the Super Bowl or other championship, not one that will sell the most money.

Five Reasons the NFL is More Popular Than The NBA

Five Reasons the NFL is More Popular Than The NBA | Sports Management | Scoop.it

"The NFL season is going to open this weekend. [ed. True when the question was sent.  It has opened now.]  Every year at this time I wish it was basketball instead.  I know I'm a weird basketball junkie but my question is why more people aren't!  I think basketball is way better than football but most of America disagrees.  The NFL is everything here.  I assume since you write about the NBA you agree with me that basketball is the better game.  So why do so many people love football more?" http://bit.ly/17WBWOI

NFL vs. NBA

 

I learned that the NFL is more popular then the NBA. I agree with this article because the anticipation is much greater in the NFL. When you are a fan of a basketball team, which I am, you think about games like this, “oh well we lost, we still have 81 more games to do something.” In the NFL each and every game means so much. People have friends and family over their respective houses for Sundays just to watch football. If you did that for basketball, those people wouldn’t leave your house…1 thing I found interesting from this article is that people love anticipation. Fans would rather watch 16 games the whole season and be very into those 16 then watch all 82 games not as intense. Some information that I found to be educational is that NFL is more convenient then the NBA. The average fan doesn’t have time to watch games during the week so having NFL games on Sunday is the perfect convenience for them.I selected this article because I am a big NBA and NFL fan. I support both sports and keep up with what is going on in their respective leagues. I agree with the statements in this article because following the NBA is more time consuming then the NFL. Something new happens in the NBA while in the NFL it is a weekly thing.This information will help me in the sport management industry because to make money in this industry, you have to have to consumer be interested in what you are selling. If the consumer isn’t interested your sales are going to go down. This is why the NFL is very successful. The NFL has the highest TV ratings because it is way more convenient to watch then the NBA.

Bloated Yankees' Payroll Could Doom Team For Years To Come

Bloated Yankees' Payroll Could Doom Team For Years To Come | Sports Management | Scoop.it
After losing their fourth straight game, the New York Yankees' playoff hopes are barely alive as they trail the sliding Texas Rangers and the Tampa Bay Rays by 3 1/2 games for the two AL wild-card spots with only 11 to play.

1. In this article I learned that the almighty Yankees are going to be in a slump for the next couple years. They spend all this money on players who at the time seemed to be good but a couple years in their stuck with injury prone or declining old men. They still have to pay $144 million for 11 players, with 14 of their current players needing to be resigned.
2. I found this all interesting. My dream is to be in the front office of a team, so i can learn off of this. Even though the Yankees won the World Series in 2009, they are now struggling with the players that won them that championship.
3. I selected this article because the Yankees are the most prolific American franchise. The are know as a team that always wins and its nice to see them finally struggling like all other teams do.
4. Like I said in #2, I will know that younger players maybe less experienced but thehse 8 year contracts will work better for them because they are going through their prime years.

1.In this article I learned that 64, yes SIXTY-FOUR, baseball players make more money individually than the Houston Astros as a team. But the Astros owner gets the last laugh. His team is the most profitable team in the history of professional sports. This is unbelievable, that a team as bad as the Astros have the most profitable team ever.
2. I found it very interesting. The Astros will make $99 million in operating income (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) this season. This money will go to playing the teams debt that was there when the team was sold to owner, Jim Crane in 2011.
3.This article is all about making money in sports. That is why we want to be in the business and this is a record example of money making. This shows that you dont always need to win to make money.
4.This will help me in the sports industry because it will help me make the team money and get the most money out of my team

Brooklyn Islanders? Not So Fast

Bruce Ratner's proposed new arena on Long Island would only need a bit of tweaking to make it NHL-caliber.

Hunter Marciano's comment, September 11, 2013 3:08 PM
1.In this article I learned that Bruce Ratner, part-owner of the Brooklyn Nets, has gotten the right to privately renovate the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York. The New York Islanders, who play out of the Coliseum, are scheduled to move to Brooklyn’s Barclay Center in 2015. This move will make the team and NHL a whole lot more money. But the question is if they add more seats to the Coliseum is it still worth moving to Brooklyn. The Islanders are the only professional team to play on Long Island and who knows if the fans will make the 27 mile trip to Brooklyn night in and night out.
2. This article reflects on what the Nassau Coliseum might have to offer after the Islanders move. There might be a minor league hockey team that plays there. Plus the Islanders will play a couple of games in the Coliseum during the season.
3. I selected this article because I am from Brooklyn and I am now keeping watch of the teams that are goning to move to Brooklyn. Even though I will never root for the Islanders they are soon to be Brooklyn’s Home Team.
4. This will help me because there will now be more jobs in the area where I live so I will try and get internship or jobs with either of Brooklyn’s Pro Sports Team.
