NFL Instant Replay

Instant Replay NFL

Mitch Bacco's insight:

Everyone in the game today has become all about now, they want instant results.  Meanwhile, the instant replay was never intended to help officiate a game, instead to show viewers a play again incase they missed something.  Since this season replacement referees were used, the instant replay was used more frequently since they began to see it as a safety net, rather than a tool.

Economics of Professional Sports

Economics of pro sports

Mitch Bacco's insight:

From 1990 to 2000 ten new NFL stadiums were built that costed a total of $2.7 billion.  About 77% or $2.05 billion of that was funded by taxpayers.  Not many privately owned sectors, such as professional sports teams, recieve funds from the public.  The economics of professional sports goes into greater detail than a lot of people know.  For example the restriction of new members, to limit competition and not chance decreasing revenue.

In A Business Built On Fans, How Much Access Is Too Much?

In A Business Built On Fans, How Much Access Is Too Much? | Today's Sports Industry | Scoop.it
At first, I was offended when I heard John Tortorella refused to answer basic questions from the media about injuries and in-game pep talks.
Mitch Bacco's insight:

Social networking has completely changed the interaction between professionals and fans, and it makes you wonder how much is too much.  Fans do deserve some access, but some things like injury disclosure or a coach's pep talk are pushing the boundries.  A coach's job is protecting his team and leading his players, not interacting with the fans.  If a player feels that his coach is exploiting him by disclosing an injury and fans are blaming his poor play on his injury then that player will most likely lose respect for his coach.

NFL Instant Replay

Instant Replay NFL

Mitch Bacco's insight:

The NFL enjoys using the replay for multiple reasons.  The league wants to always get the call right, but others argue that you can't eliminate the human aspect of officiating.  Both sides have valid arguements, such as saying that you just can't blow a call in the Super Bowl.  While others argue that the game has lost it's integrity, that it's become all about the angles now.

The Mavs are a Business Unlike Any Other « blog maverick

The Mavs are a Business Unlike Any Other « blog maverick | Today's Sports Industry | Scoop.it
When you own a professional sports team it doesn't take long to realize that owning a team is unlike owning any other business. On one hand the competitive side of ownership is a driving force. I want to win championships.
Mitch Bacco's insight:

Owning a professional sports team is unlike owning any other business out there.  Not only do you have to focus on making a profit, you also have to provide a winning team for your fans.  Mark Cuban's main goal isn't to make the most money like all other business's, he wants to win championship's while making money.  No other business impact their fans as much as professional sports teams.
