    24 Apr 2015 | 1:48 pm
    As hard as it is to believe for many who thought the days of boxing on broadcast were over in the 1970’s, the sport is probably getting more live and taped airtime today than in decades. NBC and CBS, ESPN and FOX, Showtime and HBO and Spike TV have all found their way back in or have enhanced their investment in the sport, which is about to go through another transformative week that will cap with the first of what should be at least two fights between Manny Pacquaio and Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas next weekend.

    Weird sports – they’re everywhere, and played by everyone. The things people do in the name of sports would curl your toes. No, really: one of those sports is toe wrestling. That didn’t quite make it into the Olympics, but it was not for lack of trying. When you think about it, there really is no such thing as a weird sport. All sports are just a way for humans to turn everyday activities into friendly competition, and explore the limits of our physicality. Tossing an orange ball into a red hoop suspended 10 feet off the ground having only a slightly larger diameter than the ball…

    On April 28 the New York Yankees will have a bobblehead night for one of their stars. He crosses cultural demos and brings people out to the ballpark in The Bronx who may not come out otherwise. Later this summer they will honor one of their legendary players from the recent past, one who admitted using PED’s but then came back to resume his career without incident. Neither is Alex Rodriguez. They are Masahiro Tanaka and Andy Pettite. What about Rodriquez, who is about to pass Willie Mays on the all-time home run list and will pass a host of milestones as he returned from his year-long…

  • Pain Killers, Athletes and Addiction

    Jennifer Smith
    14 Apr 2015 | 9:30 am
    Ability is everything on the field, court, ice and pitch. If you can’t perform to the best of your physical abilities, someone will be ready to take your place. Your coaches and managers, who should be considered as mentors and borderline parental figures, won’t hesitate to replace you if your body is no longer able to perform the way it once did. This puts an enormous amount of pressure on men and women passionate about the sports they play. Unfortunately, it also fuels a culture of concealing pain and injury, which can have devastating effects on an athletes’ livelihood in both the…
  • Five Extreme Sports Athletes to Follow on Social Media

    Noella Schink
    7 Apr 2015 | 9:20 am
    In the good old days (that were bad for extreme sports), keeping up-to-date with cool athletes amounted to magazine subscriptions and the occasional sports program. Often times those dirt bike, skiing and other extreme sports mags were published monthly – and finding a sports show covering anything beyond football, baseball, basketball or hockey was next to impossible. Yes, getting your extreme sports fix also meant waiting for the Olympic games every four years or catching an MX championship meet whenever the networks felt like carrying one. Even cable channels, considered extreme…

    When you think about it there are millions of people who each make sports great in their own way. Fans make up most of that population, but there are also players, trainers, reporters and announcers. Then there are the men and women who make up the foundation of our favorite franchises – coaches and management. These people work tirelessly to build the best franchise they possibly can, don’t get enough credit when they’re successful and get too much blame when they’re unsuccessful. While it’s certainly on a much smaller scale, coaching and managing a local rec team is just as…

    Starting a business is never an easy task. It takes a lot of intense planning, execution of your strategy and little bit of luck to create the kind of business that you can build your life around. We know that businesses fail at an exceedingly high mark, reported at anywhere from 50-90%. Due to this high failure rate, every aspiring entrepreneur should be seeking out whatever potential advantages they can find. Fortunately, I’ve found a few natural benefits of being a former athlete that can help you carry over your talents into the business world. The number of people we’ve seen…

    If you wanted to take a snapshot of the progression of sports in America for the last three decades; not just the biggest of leagues but startups and “attacker” brands as well, you should start with Andy Dolich. The Brooklyn native has been there for some of team sports’ greatest moments and some if it’s disappointing ones.

  • We Love A Comeback: Pete Rose Returning To The Fold?

    Pete Rose on the comeback, kinda? It has been very slow, but the logjam appears to be softening under new MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred, as baseball’s banned hit king has started to make his way into the “official” good graces with baseball. The question from a business standpoint for Rose is, is it too late to cash in? Rose agreed to the ban in 1989 after a Major League Baseball investigation concluded he bet on his team to win while he was managing the club, and after years of silence “Charlie Hustle” began doing what he always did best, shaking the chains for reinstatement,…

    Today was a bittersweet day that had some of us excited to return home and sad to be leaving this fantastic country. It started with a lecture on investor relations from Kris Douma. He was very entertaining and easily kept everyone engaged. We discussed crises in the business world and how investors and managers deal with them. One of the main take-aways I learned from the session was cultural difference in the mindset of the Dutch and Americans. When making decisions, the Dutch tend to take more nonfinancial risks into consideration than Americans. The Dutch have a saying: “Just…

How do an individual athlete or personality’s social channels compare to traditional media platforms when it come to marketing campaigns, ad buys, and moving the masses?

    It was The Saints vs The Blues that got the ANZAC Day games underway across the pond in Wellington. And it was the Saints who got away to a “flyer”, but the second half belonged to the boys in blue as they come home hard faster than “a young buck on a promise” as they slammed the pill through the big sticks with reckless abandonment hammering home 12 goals 9 points to the lowly sinners 4 goals 3 points.

With massive ANZAC Day crowds all over the country to honour the fallen and those  who returned from all conflicts especially Gallipoli. The ANZAC spirit was shown out on the parks throughout the round 4 clashes. Here is a classic clip I dedicate to the Mighty Demons:  Round 4 got under way on Friday night April 24th 2015 with the Tigers vs The Demons in what looked like a game the Tigers would walk away with……BUT we are talking about The Richmond Football Club, and in true RFC…

If we look to those blokes who “squeak when they walk” they seem to think this one has already been “run n’ won” as they have hammered up the Hawks at $1.58 and the Power at $2.40 ……..brave odds for both sides I reckon.
