Kevin Rudolph's insight:

This is a very interesting article that came of quite surprise to me. i never thought of the hispanic race to be a large market for the NFL. but apparently they are and the NFL tried very hard to get it. This can bring in more revenue through a new fan market to sell products to. The NFL celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month by showing initiatives through the teams. it is important to the sports management industry because it shows that any market is a possible market. it also opens opportunities for new jobs aswell.

MLB Continues to See Postseason TV Ratings Increase up Over 2012 | Sports Management | Scoop.it
With the Division Series in full swing, Major League Baseball continues to see television ratings increase over last season.

This article is very interesting, as it is a very good article for the MLB. The MLB raising their viewing ratings is crucial as it gives the league a good name, and shows that they are on the rise. It is important becasue their viewer ratings increasing means higher competition for other leagues and organizations. i found it interesting that it is up 5% which for viewer ratings is a pretty high number. it poses an opportunity in the sports management industry as now new positions may open up with the increase in popularity.

Why The EPL On NBC Will Accelerate Soccer's Popularity In The United States | Sports Management | Scoop.it
Frank Lampard of Chelsea scored an amazing free-kick goal in the 1st half of his squad's 2013 opener versus Hull City.
Kevin Rudolph's insight:

This article is a great argument, and has great insight. NBC bought the TV rights for the EPL for 350 million dollars over the next 3 years. that is more money than Khan just bought a team in the EPL for. This new contract and availability of watching all the games is expected to cause an increase in popularity of soccer in the US. i agree and i am already seeing a change. kids are starting to follow the league but more importantly, the MLS and the US Mens National team are benefitting, by getting more supporters, and revenue. i think this wa s great move for everyone involved. i chose this article because it agin involves soccer and it is a story that affects many people.

What Qualifying For The 2014 World Cup Means For U.S. Soccer Financially

What Qualifying For The 2014 World Cup Means For U.S. Soccer Financially | Sports Management | Scoop.it
Clint Dempsey (Photo credit: Erik Daniel Drost) Last night in Columbus, Ohio, the U.S.
Kevin Rudolph's insight:

Another very interesting article that relates to soccer. I did not realize that countries get paid to just qualify for the world cup. I knew they made money for winning, but qualifying guarantees at least $12.5 Million to the teams, and it goes up the longer you stay in the competition. I found this all very interesting and i found it also interesting that the sponsors of the team will indirectly benefit now that their brand gets shown at the world cup. This article caught my eye becasue i follow the national team and their road to Brazil 2014. This just goes to show that even sports and entertainment are mostly about money and reputation.

The World's Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden (MSG), has become the latest company to be targeted in a class action by former interns claiming they were wrongly classified to avoid being paid.
Kevin Rudolph's insight:

This is a good article that relates to unpaid interns. i found it very interesting that this issue is arising because unpaid internships are very common. If the plaintiffs win this lawsuit then unpaid internships will decrease and the sports industry which heavily uses internships, may falter. this is a huge lawsuit. i chose this article because it relates to my time at Endicott as we have to get internships, which will be unpaid. i am interested to follow up on this issue.this article can open eyes to the strict legal nature of this industry and the problems it can run into, and teaches me to be evry careful.

Kevin Rudolph's insight:

This article is very interesting, as 200 million dollars for a player over 7 years is a crazy amount of money, That is rarely shelled out by sports teams. That results in almost 30 million a year for Ronaldo which is the richest contract in history. Last year ronaldo made 44 million. Almost half of which coming from sponsors. Nike paid him 9 million last year, because he is one of the most popular athletes on the planet. I also found it interesting how much Real Madrid is spending, giving Ronaldo 200 million over 7 years, giving 132 million to another club for a player and that players wages. i chose this article becasue it relates to soccer and i am a very big fan of Christiano Ronaldo.

NHL fleshes out three-year plan - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

NHL fleshes out three-year plan - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | Sports Management | Scoop.it
One billion dollars in additional national revenue. A sharper international focus with more events. A major broadcast rights deal. Another “24/7”-style show. All within three seasons.
Kevin Rudolph's insight:

This is very interesting because i did not know that a league could come up with that kind of extra money aside from the actual yearly revenue. I found it very interesting that they are making this plan public 3 years in advance, because now if it falls through the NHL will lose reputation. This article stuck out to me becasue of the huge 1 billion dollars that will be brought in aside from yearly revenues. This is important to sports management because it changes the employeee roles in the NHL, and on top of that it shows us that sometimes drastic change can be made to make more money.
