Listen up: NFL moving to mike players - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | Sports Management | Scoop.it
The NFL is moving to put microphones on players and coaches as another step in the league’s ongoing push to improve fans’ in-stadium experience.
Jack Mackey's insight:

1). I learned that the NFL is moving to put microphones on players and coaches as another step in the league’s push to improve fans’ in-stadium experience. There has been no set timeline on when this new concept will be put into place but the league is saying that it will happen at some point. “NASCAR’s never hesitated to let fans hear the conversation between the spotters and the drivers,” said President of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Mike Lamping. Well Mike, the conversations between the spotters and drivers isn't trash talking. I mean what does he think the players say on the field, all positive support? No, football is nasty, especially at the professional level and they want the little boys and girls that attend to the games to hear some of that nonsense. What about the coaches yelling out there plays or coverages? Almost everyone has tevo now, so he really thinks the opposing coaches aren't going to recorsd the game and listen to some of the calls later that night. It just seems ridiculous to mike players and coaches.

2). I learned that NASCAR lets their fans listen to conversations between the drivers and spotters and that the league is trying to generate more fans by making them more interested and active members of the game, but I still don't thnik this is the way to do it.

3). I selected this article because I thought it was very interesting that the league was actually considering doing this to the player and the coaches. Fans are very important and need to be engaged throughout the season, but let the players do more meet and greets off the field, not while they're playing the game.

4). Again, this information is what new sport managers need to think about when looking into the fans and the marketing side of sports. They need to be able to think into the future of what the game is going to change into and start processing ideas that'll change the fan's experience at the game and even at home on the couch.

Yankees Luxury Tax Will Be Twice The Size Of Astros Payroll

Yankees Luxury Tax Will Be Twice The Size Of Astros Payroll | Sports Management | Scoop.it
The New York Yankees have a big incentive to make the playoffs: more revenue to help them pay their luxury tax. ST.
Jack Mackey's insight:

1). I learned that the Yankees are going to pay a 29 million dollar tax this season, which is twice as much as the entire payroll of the Houston Astros. They are also only two games back in the American League for the wild card playoff spot, and they actually play each other for the final three games of the season.  

2). I found that the Yankees, who own 26% of the YES Network have experienced a drop in ratings this year. But it’s still by far the most watched RSN in the country with an average of more than 300,000 households per game. They are expected to generate 500 million dollars in revenue this year.

3). I chose this article because there is a lot of money that goes into baseball. It's one of the highest paying professional organization in the world and understanding some of the money that goes in and out of the baseball world seemed pretty interesting.

4). This information gives me a better undertsnding of what luxury tax is and why the Yankees have to pay so much of it. The finacial side of sports might be an area I would want to check out in the future so this article was a good way to view where some of the money generated by these teams goes.

Bucs' Lavonte David fined $7,800 for late hit on Geno Smith

Bucs' Lavonte David fined $7,800 for late hit on Geno Smith | Sports Management | Scoop.it
Tampa LB Lavonte David not only suffered through the aftermath of his late-hit on Jets QB Geno Smith, but also got fined for his actions.
Jack Mackey's insight:

1). I learned that Tampa Bay lost this game because of Lavonte David's actions. He put the Jets in field goal range at the end of the game and lost it for the team 18-17.

2). I found it intersting that David was fined 7,800 dollars after the late it. Was it because the hit was on the quarterback? Would the same fine have been addmitted to David if he had received an unnessessary roughness penalty on a running back or wide receiver? It just goes to show how the game of football is really changing. We as upcoming sport managers have to be familiar with these new changes in soprts.

3). I selected this article because I might want to persue at coaching or reffing job at the college level and work my way up to the profession league like Chip Kelley did. I would have to be familiar with the rules and changes in the game of football from now until I'd retire. Our football coach just had to explain to us the new rule that's cracking down at the college level called targeting, where we could be ejected form the game for committing this penalty.

4). This information will help me stay informed with the rules and regualtions of the NFL, if that's the industry I decide to go into. Keeping up to date and aware of of the sport I'm persuing can give me a real advantage when competing for jobs against other applicants.
