The Cost Of Owning Stadium & Arena Naming Rights | Sports Control | Scoop.it
From Wrigley Field to the Staples Center, check out whether selling a stadium's name to a corporation is a good idea.
Joel Roberts's insight:

This part of Sports Management has gotten huge because gone are the days of an "Owner" and we currently live in the time were their are a collective group of owners that gather together and collectively run a franchise. This brings the question of does this type of ownership detert from the overall sense of customer service for the fan base ? or does this become more about profits?

So much has changed in the quality of security all over the country in light of terroist attacks over the last century. Security in sports facilities is no exception.

Joshua Evans's curator insight, January 17, 2014 10:13 AM

Security can never be thorough enough. At an event like a game, there are thousands of potential victims if a terrorist attack happens. Always think security. 

Jason Cain's curator insight, March 22, 2014 10:47 PM

Security has been as important as the teams that are playing since the 9/11 attacks on the United States. It is important to keep everyone safe especially in large crowds where attacks would involve a lot of people at one time.

Did the NFL Come Down Too Hard on the Saints?

Did the NFL Come Down Too Hard on the Saints? | Sports Control | Scoop.it

Jonathan Vilma was suspended for the entire season by Roger Goodell and the NFL disciplinary committee. As well as Scott Fujita, Anthony Hargrove, and Will Smith have all been suspended. All four players will be suspended without pay and may appeal.


Via Sports Management Team
Joel Roberts's insight:

The Saints are a interesting topic within in the Sports Control umbrella. The "Bounty system" was not the best idea for them to take part in but being that football is so physical it is a little hard to pin point certain discrepancies in some of these players supposed " bounty hits" . It is the Sports Managers job to ensure player safety so these measures unfortuanetly had to be taken by the NFL.

This article discusses all the jobs that are involved when having a large arena. This would also be helpful when the subsidy issue is argued against. An arena does create jobs for the community. One may be surprised just how many.
