2. This article made me realize how this was really an international event with Canelo being of Mexican decent. He has outdrawn the Mexican national soccer team on Televisa. Because this fight brought national pride into the question and was an international event it made even more money than just two Americans fighting each other would have.

3. I am a huge Floyd Mayweather fan and am always very interested to see the number of viewers each fight has and the amount of money they make. Considering Floyd made 41.5 million dollars for this last fight I knew that this drew out more boxing fans than ever, so I was interested to see how they promoted it.

4. This article demonstrates how strong marketing tactics can pay off with huge benefits. This was one of the most viewed fights of all time because it was promoted as being one of the best match ups of all time.Due to good marketing this fight made both fighters and Showtime boat loads of money.

2. I never knew that the universities who were included in this game were each compensated $75,000 dollars. This seems ridiculous when the players are the ones who put in the grueling hours of work and don't even get to have their name in the game, let alone be paid.
Carter Chickering's comment, September 26, 2013 8:19 PM
3. I chose this article because I have played this game series for as long as I can remember. I have very fond childhood memories of playing this game after school with some of my best friends and to hear that it is being cancelled is very sad.

4. If one was interested in profiting in the college sports world this article really brings up a good warning. The NCAA is extremely strict on its regulations and because of it now the people at EA Sports who work on making "NCAA Football" are now out of a job.

America's Fastest Growing Sport: Professional Bull Riding

America's Fastest Growing Sport: Professional Bull Riding | Bad Teams Can Make You Fat | Scoop.it
Cowboy up! SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - JULY 09: Luke Snyder of the USA rides in the final during the 2011 PBR Australian Cup Series Final at Acer Arena on July 9, 2011 in Sydney, Australia.
Carter Chickering's insight:

Carter Chickering

 

1. I learned that bull riding is the fastest growing sport in the world. The original investments were given by 20 cowboys for $1000. The money those 20 investors gave some 21 years ago is now worth over $4,000,000 dollars.

 

2. This article really showed how profitable sports investments can be. It not only showed this in the case of bull riding, but drew many other examples from other sports; such as sales of the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco Giants. In comparison, bull riding has been by far the most profitable in its years.

 

3. I chose this article because I know absolutely nothing about the sport of bull riding. To hear it was the fastest growing sport was shocking. So I was curious to learn about the sport and about why it's growing so fast.

 

4. This article showed me how even the smallest investments in sports can turn into something as big as the development of a nationally recognized sport. The original investors in the UFC and bull riding showed how one can still be innovative in the sports world today.

2. This article showed how social media really gets fans engaged with their team. It also showed how a team can really set itself apart from the pack by working hard to engage their fans. This strength on the web also helps the team acquire new fans.

3. I used this article because we discussed in class how much social media can impact sports management. I can't lie, this article stuck out to me because it was written about my beloved Giants.

4. This article shows how the internet can be used as a tool to market one's sports business. Because of the Celtics and Giants interesting Twitter accounts Forbes is advising readers to follow both ball clubs. This is evidence as to how helpful social media can be in the promotion world.

Despite Greater Awareness, Violent Hazing Still A Problem In School Sports

Despite Greater Awareness, Violent Hazing Still A Problem In School Sports | Bad Teams Can Make You Fat | Scoop.it
For all the legitimate worries about concussions, what I was most concerned about when my son joined high school football, or even other sports and activities, was what would happen in the locker room or the bus.
Carter Chickering's insight:

Carter Chickering

 

1. I thought hazing was a dying phenomenon, but apparently I was wrong. Hazing is still very present in today's sports world. This article challenges and confronts its readers to try to come up with a final solution to end hazing once and for all. 

 

2. I found it mind boggling that even through all the awareness on hazing there is now a days that kids are still being arrested for it. Being an athlete has many benefits but one of them will never be the freedom to assault your younger teammates. This article also portrayed the serious ramifications that can come with hazing and used specific examples from athletes who are now in serious trouble.

 

3. As a basketball player I was very curious coming into Endicott whether hazing was going to be part of the team regime. I came in with the mindset that no matter what I wasn't going to be hazed. Thankfully, this practice is not part of athletics at Endicott. I was curious to read about what goes on around the rest of the country and what I greatfully don't have to participate in.

 

4. Since I want to be a coach, this topic is very relevent to my potential job. This article talked about a coach in the suburbs of Chicago who is now facing criminal charges because he failed to stop hazing he knew was going on. This article really made me realize how big of a responsibility to prevent hazing a coach holds.

Backing The Wrong Sports Team Can Make You Fat - Forbes

Backing The Wrong Sports Team Can Make You Fat - Forbes | Bad Teams Can Make You Fat | Scoop.it
Backing The Wrong Sports Team Can Make You Fat
Forbes
Watching your favourite sports team suffer defeat can turn you into an unhealthy eater, unless you step back and remember what's important to you.
Carter Chickering's insight:

Carter Chickering

 

1. Chris Howell explains to his reader how when a fan's team struggles so do their nutritious habits. A study done showed that people eat an average of 16% more saturated fats per day when their team loses. People use fatty yet delicious foods as a therapy for their teams lack of talent on the field.

 

2. I thought it was extremely interesting that on top of unhealthy eating habits, sports teams losses also increase the number of fatal car accidents, alcohol related crimes, cardiac illness, and domestic violence.

 

3. I chose this article because it seemed extremely unlikely to me. Before I started reading, I was very skeptical as to how backing the wrong sports team could affect one's size. In retrospect it makes sense people eat when they are upset or depressed and when my team loses I get extremely depressed.

 

4. If the team I was marketing for was struggling, therefore lowering ticket sales; I would work to advertise and market delicious, yet un-nutritious, food to the depressed fans. One way would be by using the jumbotron in the arena to advertise certain concession stands.
