For loyal fans, a spot on the floor? - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

For loyal fans, a spot on the floor? - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | Sports Management Articles 1 | Scoop.it
Two NBA teams are awaiting league approval of a plan that would put the names of season-ticket holders on their playing floors.
Emily Richard's insight:

This article discusses the opportunity that is unlike any other opportunity any sports fan has ever had. Two NBA teams are discussing the possibility of placing the names of all season ticket holders and clubs on tiles surrounding the court, or on the court itself. Both teams have not yet decided to go through with this, but if they did it would be in place before the next coming season.

      One thing I found smart by the teams was that they discussed of having the price of the name tiles included in the price for season tickets.Depending on the price however, I feel that less people would purchase the tickets if they are pricey, but if the customer has money to spend, they will buy tickets for the sole purpose of the tiles on the court.

   I selected this article because I feel that it is important to have all fans involved the greatest amount possible. Being a large fan of a professional sports team, I would love for an opportunity like this. To have your name on the court of your favorite professional basketball team would be amazing, and something people could not pass up. I enjoying seeing professional sports teams reaching out and involving fans as much as possible.

   This article helps me with sports management, because it expresses and reminds me that fans are the most important aspect of professional sports. The fans are what keeps the athletes playing year after year, providing the team and organaztion with revenue. They are the ones that purchase tickets, merchandise, apparel, food at concessions, and tickets to events. Getting the fans involved with something like putting their names on the home court of their favorite NBA team is a dream of fans everywhere.

Game Changers 2013 - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

Game Changers 2013 - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | Sports Management Articles 1 | Scoop.it
Making a difference in the industry. Spearheading initiatives. Developing new approaches. For these reasons and more, we recognize the executives in this section as our 2013 Game Changers.
Emily Richard's insight:

Reading this article I learned that for the past three years the Sports Business Journal publishes an article that covers and highlights the success of women in the sports industry. Women included in the articles are all executives and employees of all different tevelvision channels, partnerships, and different sports at different levels, mostly professional sports.

    One thing I found interesting is that this article is not the only thing that is highlighting women and all their accomplishments in the sports industry. Sports Business Journal also has programs such as "Forty Unfer 40," which also shares the current news of women and their jobs. Another thing I thought was interesting was the amount of women that actually have larger and more important roles in the indsutry than men do. One woman who works within the NHL works with international sponsorships, and even organizes yearly meetings within the organization.

       I selected this article, because I thought it was interesting how many women are actually employed and have higher positions than men in the sports industry. One day I hope to be one of the women included in the GameChangers article, and it will tell of all my accomplishments. I hope to make a great impact on the industry as all these women.

      The information in this article showed me that it is possible for women to get a job in the world of sports. The article will help me in sports management, because all these women are in the positions that I hope to be in someday. It shows me how many women are actually within the industry and organizations, and that if I work hard I can be at the level they are at today.

Bettman’s pay up slightly in fiscal ’12 - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

Bettman’s pay up slightly in fiscal ’12 - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | Sports Management Articles 1 | Scoop.it
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman’s salary and benefits climbed to more than $8 million for the 2011-12 season, the most recent full season prior to the 2012-13 lockout, according to the league’s newly available tax filing.
Emily Richard's insight:

In this article I learned about the salaries recieved of some of the higher power jobs within the NHL. Although the salaries are less than other sports, the NHL employees still recieve a large amount of money. i also learned about how the NHL pays for taxes, and where the core of the revenue for the organization comes from. Along with taxes and income, they broke down the types of expenses that need to be paid.

     I found it interesting that out of all professional sports, the NHL recieves the lowest salaries compared to MLB, NFL, and possibly the NBA. I was also amazed at how much the expenses and taxes grew from season to season, along with revenue.

   I chose this article, because I have a large love for hockey. I truly admire the NHL and hope to work within the organization. Maybe one day I will even get to work with the men that are mentioned in this article that are known across the country for their position of high power.

       This information from the article will help me in sport management, because it gives me a preview of what to expect with a career in the NHL. It shows the salaries of some employees, and responsibilities of some of the men mentioned. It also shows me the footsteps I am expected to follow in if I ever have a career in the organization.
