Thomas Salvatore's curator insight, September 26, 2013 1:34 PM

Oregon Ducks football is known for their flashiness. Their new football facility was created with a lot of things in mind. From their own barbershop, special ventillation locker rooms, after shave in the bathrooms, and 64 individual tv screens that combine in to one. The facility cost 68 million dollars but the revenue they will make from national exposure that they will recieve for their work on the field will easily offset that. When an athlete walks in Oregon's idea is they will fall in love with the place. The better football players they can get to attend Oregon the more revenue they will make. This article connects marketing and coaching all together. The coach's try to market Oregon to the players through the new facility. This shows that in the sports industry you have to spend money to make money. Without this new facility Oregon may be lacking behind other schools to convince players to come to their school.

This article could tie into both facility crowd control and security, it covers some situations were a taser was used on fans at past sporting events. There seems to be a bit of mixed feelings on the necessity of a stun gun for event security, and it also covers a case in which a fan suied over the use of the stun gun. Due to the fan suing, the idea of stun guns in a facilit could also be something that would come up when discussing risk management.

Mike Horne's curator insight, September 22, 2013 10:28 PM

I added this one simply because I enjoy tasers and seeing people being tased.  It's a fairly safe way to control someone and de-escalate a bad situation without hurting the people around them.  As with anything, there is a liability issue that the facility staff will have to deal with if used incorrectly.
