“That's just not smart,'' said Cuadra, speaking by phone from his EndZone Sports Management office overlooking Balboa Park. “That's the 800-pound gorilla there.
jabrego's insight:

This article is about the USFL rebuilding itself and taking a different approach to its league philosophy. Unlike its previous owners who wanted to compete against the NFL, this new ownership wants to be its minor league equivalent. The USFL wants to focus on player development and provide an opportunity to those that could not make the grades in college or got cut from NFL teams. Teams will also be located in cities that currently do not have NFL teams.

The Keys to Success in Sport Management San Jose State University Athletic Director Tom Bowen
jabrego's insight:

A great interview with Tom Bowen the Athletic Director of San Jose State University. He gives great advice and answers the questions asked with honest direct answers. I like specifically how he is willing to assist people that perform for him to further their career. By promoting people to hirer billets with more responsibilities it motivates his employees and keeps them involved in the company because they know there is room fro advancement.

Good look at behind the scenese of facility management. 

Cam Farnham's curator insight, October 15, 2014 12:33 AM

1. I learned that without a good EAM CMMS solution, maintenance can quickly skyrocket in price. Yes the job will get done, but the operation skyrockets in price. Also i learned that if you plan your maintenance through spreadsheets, you will forget something.  The article compares it to when someone tried to plan there days using sticky notes. You will loose them , and will always miss something.

 

2. I found it interesting that there were 7 specific objectives they described. I thought there could be an endless amount of objectives to make the maintenance  of sport better. Also i found it interesting that the article stated the community would be much happier if they did not have get a new stadium, because of costs and memories.

 

3. I selected this article because one of my first jobs might be working for a sports team in the facility field. I always thought driving a zamboni would be such a cool and fun job. Another reason i chose this is because my father has told me many cool stories about facility management. My father worked for the Brown University facility management staff when he was in college, until he made the football team.

 

4.This information about facility management will help me out because i know how to stay organized and how to be the most successful. I know not to use spreadsheets, or sticky notes to plan maintenance. Also i know specific objectives to get done to be the most successful and to make everyone happy.

Ross bought the team and its stadium in 2009 for about $1.1 billion from Wayne Huizenga, the Waste Management Inc. founder.
jabrego's insight:

This article is about another NFL owner asking for the people to pay $200 million dollars in renovations for the Miami Dolphins stadium. Except former Philadelphia Eagles owner Norman Braman is arguing in the peoples behalf and is petitioning that Stephen Ross (Dolphins owner) should pay for the renovations himself. A very interesting article to say the least.

That's why every stable owner needs an emergency plan, whether they have two stalls in the backyard or 60 at a show facility.
jabrego's insight:

This article is great for those that are horse owners or one day might manage them. Emergency actions plans are vital to the survival of the fans attending the game or the animals that are the athletes in the competition. The tips and suggestions given are a good starting point for race horse owners to consider in case of natural disasters.

jabrego's insight:

Another great short documentary on another gem in the sport management world, running a concession stand with 108,000 people wanting food is no walk in the park. It is good to see that the volunteers benefit greatly from working for Penn State University during sport events. The University volunteers range from the community church to student organizations. Additionally funds are used to finance student field trips and events.

jabrego's insight:

Stadium security is a vital role in any event regardless the time or day. This video gives us a quick peek at the daily operations of the University of Nebraska security operations. Just like we covered in our text book, the video begins with a pregame brief by the head of security and reminds all his personnel of their responsibilities and importance of their job. Secondly, show different areas of the stadium and tips on what stadium security looks for in order to dictate where a potential problem may arise.

Should Building Codes be Changed to Keep Fans from Falling Out of Their Seats?

Should Building Codes be Changed to Keep Fans from Falling Out of Their Seats? | “Sports Facility Management.4036133” | Scoop.it
Should building codes be changed to keep fans from falling out of upper-level stadium sections?

Via Adam White
jabrego's insight:

There have been several incidents with individuals falling from stadiums. I would not doubt that alcohol was a contributing factor in these incidents. The stadium has the responsibility to provide a safe environment for their fans and must do everything they can to ensure that happens. Even of that means higher guard rails will interfere with the convenience of viewing the field. This is a lawsuit waiting to happen and the team will end up losing more money paying settlements than it would have cost to install higher guard rails.

D'aundra's curator insight, June 26, 2016 5:04 PM

This article addresses the keeping the fans safe. Although it is important of maintaining good sight lines to see the game, keeping fans safe should also be a priority. Maintaining railing only to code seems to be out of date. Maybe when the code was established, the risk of them falling was lower. Raising the minimum height of the railings while still maintaining the line of sight for fans would be a good way to keep them safe while enjoying the game.

jabrego's insight:

Reputation and work experience goes a long way when competing for a major project. Additionally, hiring a local business adds an advantage as the Minnesota Vikings can say that the new stadium is providing the local community 7, 500 new jobs for the next four years. These type of strategic moves is what convinces local governments to approve $975 million sports complexes.
