"Many benefits— including capital resources and purchasing power, management expertise and menu flexibility — that can be gained by outsourcing concessions operations to regional or national providers...Athletic departments that outsource concessions enjoy peace of mind from a management standpoint...No matter how concessions contracts are structured, the only way they succeed is if they are perceived to be mutually beneficial for all parties involved."

Despite what many people believe, professional sports venues typically do not spur large-scale economic activity.

"The typical economic impact study gathers data on all aspects of spending related to a stadium, including the money spent to build it and the money spent by fans in connection with the stadium (including on tickets, at restaurants, and at hotels). The impact of this spending ripples outward into other areas of the economy through a multiplier. By linking spending to employment, the study then calculates how many jobs a stadium has created. It does not perform a cost-benefit analysis, which would address the opportunity costs of raising taxes to pay for a stadium and consider alternative uses of those funds."

Tim Pernetti, Rutgers Athletic Director, Resigns

Tim Pernetti, Rutgers Athletic Director, Resigns | Sports Ethics: Anzur, D | Scoop.it
The circle of those who saw video of a coach’s abusive acts as soon as December was wider than had been understood.

 

On Friday morning, two days after Mr. Rice was fired, Athletic Director Tim Pernetti resigned, and implied that he was being made a scapegoat.


He said his initial inclination when he saw the videos last fall was to fire Mr. Rice, but “Rutgers decided to follow a process involving university lawyers, human resources professionals, and outside counsel.”

    

Robert L. Barchi, the president of Rutgers, placed the blame on Mr. Pernetti and other senior officials who he said recommended that Mr. Rice be suspended rather than fired.

    

The contradictory accounts signaled a deepening discord in the fallout over a decision that has outraged state lawmakers, faculty and students.

What The Changing Landscape Of College Athletics Means For New Athletic Director Hires

What The Changing Landscape Of College Athletics Means For New Athletic Director Hires | Sports Ethics: Anzur, D | Scoop.it
As college athletics has seemingly evolved into a billion dollar industry overnight, there has been a movement afoot for universities to gain more institutional control over their athletic departments.

Rhett Moroses's curator insight, September 23, 2013 3:09 PM

College Athletics is becoming bigger than ever. It is now approaching to be a billion dollar industry. But with this new milestone, Universities are developing different expectations to be met by future athletic directors who may be hired in the future. The interesting piece to this article is that instead of universities looking for applicants with a sports management background, they are looking for applicants with a business background. This is because that people who work for major business and corporations may have better experience in terms of budgeting and managing the enormous amount of money the athletic department has than people with a sports management background. This article not only gave me insight of the job expections and responsibilities of being an athletic director, but also gave me a reality check of where the industry is heading, which is more towards a billion dollar business industry.

This is a popular article on how far security officers have taken the issue of security at a major event. Is this taking it too far. I believe so. There are other ways to maintain a crowd.

With sports fan violence on a rise, This article provides an overview of the increasing use of stun guns and tasers at an attempt to prevent riots and other sporting event crowd violence. This article outlines some of the common tools and recommendations in the industry and also argues against such use of violent measures.

This sounds like a good concept, but I think this is taking out all of the fun to the game.  This would require  opening gates earlier. longer wait times and more staff to hire and train.
