The majority of U.S. states have implemented laws aimed at regulating sports age

The majority of U.S. states have implemented laws aimed at regulating sports agents. Furthermore, the U.S. federal government, through the Sports Agent Responsibility and Trust Act (SPARTA), has sought to regulate some actions of sports agents. Both the Uniform Athlete Agents Act and SPARTA allow for sports agents to be criminally prosecuted. However, even though these laws exist, stories and allegations surrounding agents providing college athletes with improper benefits continue to persist. Thus, the question becomes, how successful have the Uniform Athlete Agents Act and SPARTA been at regulating the behavior of sports agents?
Through online research, locate an instance of a sports agent who was charged with violating either the Uniform Athlete Agents Act in his or her state and/or SPARTA. Review the allegations against the agent and the case that was brought against him or her. Submit a 1- to 2-page paper in which you analyze the case you found. Your analysis must contain the following: An explanation of the allegations against the agent
An explanation of the punishment brought or sought against the agent An explanation of whether you believe the punishment brought or sought was appropriate and why An explanation of whether you believe that the Uniform Athlete Agents Act and SPARTA are enough to stop agents from giving college athletes improper benefits and why Cite all references in your paper using APA style.

Write a short paper highlighting a segment or topic from the Sports Business Journal’s SBJ Morning Buzzcast podcast which personally interests you. The segment/topic should pertain to Sport Governance or Organizational Behavior.
PODCAST REVIEW & CURRENT EVENTS POTENTIAL TOPICS
Just in case you may be having difficulties with picking a topic for the podcast review paper due soon, or the larger, current events paper due at the end of the semester, here are some possible topics that I’ve heard on the SBJ podcast lately.
You are not required to pick one of these, and this is not an exhaustive list by any means. It’s just to show the direction I’m looking for. Pick something involving an aspect of sport governance we’ve covered that is interesting to you.
 NFL – Dan Snyder controversies and potential removal as Washington owner
 NFL – Stan Kronke (LA Rams) and league settlement with St. Louis
 NFL – commissioner comments on a new, European division
 NBA – Phoenix Suns ownership controversy and franchise sale
 PGA Tour vs. LIV Golf (there are many different angles to take with this)
 Formula One – Red Bull Racing cost cap breach and fallout
 NASCAR – tension between teams/drivers and the governing body
 MLB – expansion talks
 NWSL – Portland franchise ownership controversy
 NWSL – Player mistreatment controversy
 NCAA – NIL implementation
 NCAA – College Football Playoff potential expansion
 NCAA – change in president and leadership
 NCAA – conference realignment
 SEC – Fines for Tennessee fans storming field (“2nd offense”, first was 2006, no time limit?)
 Pac 12 – Media rights deal, or lack thereof… also potential expansion
 Big XII – media rights deal, school departures, and potential expansion
 ACC – headquarters move from Greensboro to Charlotte
 Premier League – potential U.S. tour
 European Superleague – failure of, and fallout from, initial attempt – possible second attempt
I am interested to pick something regarding Soccer

What intramural or club sport would you add to the lineup of offerings?

Each student will be responsible for participating in discussion boards every
two weeks. In addition to composing their own original response to the Discussion Board question, students will
also be required to provide responses to a minimum of two classmates. These responses should be thorough and
thoughtful, not simply “I agree with your comments” or “Nice work!”
We just completed studying Campus Recreation… CONGRATS! You’ve been hired as the new Director of Campus Rec here! What intramural or club sport would you add to the lineup of offerings? Explain and reinforce your answer: Take into account current offerings, available facilities, startup costs, liability, interest, and ability to recruit participants from the student body.
1st, please write the response to the main discussion board requirement and then reply to the 2 students Which I will Sharing Their response with you. I chose to write about the Padel sport because we have many tennis field History of Padel – Padel Academy (archive.org) Student number one
If I were to be the Director of Campus Recreation, I would add a rare sport that many do not typically have the opportunity to play. I would add PickleBall which is a sport that is picking up steam with many famous athletes such as Tom Brady endorsing the activity. Most offerings at this collegeare basketball, indoor volleyball, and beach volleyball. I think PickleBall would add another element to our intramural sports. this college possesses the necessary facilities to add this sport as well because there are tennis courts at various locations. I do not believe start up costs would be very immense. I believe the only costs would be the paddles in which players would use and the ball. These are two basic necessities to play the sport. Liability is also at a minimum because PickleBall is not a contact sport. Injuries could occur if the playing area is not suitable for a game. Non-contact injuries could occur which would be a liability such as a sprained ankle or torn ligaments in the knee. Interest in the sport is apparent on campus. Multiple times I have personally walked by the tennis courts where there were numerous games of PickleBall being played. It is apparent that students prefer to play this in their free time rather than playing any other sport. Recruiting efforts would be simple as well. The students already playing the sport would most likely join as well as many other athletes that are out of their respective seasons. It is a fun, but intense sport that takes the impact off of the athletes bodies for the most past. To recruit, I would post an article on the BUZZ which would potentially catch the eyes of students. I would also request Guilford College Instagram accounts to post an ad asking interested students to sign-up.
Overall, I believe adding PickleBall to the list of intramural sports would be a great thing for the College community. PickleBall is a fun and entertaining sport to be a part of. The sport also has a relatively low risk compared to that of football and basketball. Student number two
Being that I was just hired as the new Director of Campus Rec here at the college, I’d implement several different intramural and club sports that everyone could participate in. This would give students a chance who aren’t fit for the real deal school sport teams, to actually have fun and play as a team. Knowing the facilities on campus I would create a intramural basketball league for men and women for no cost. The only thing I would have that’s a must would be everyone participating sign a health and safety waiver form. Other sports that I would consider having would be soccer, women flag football, corn hole tournaments , and kickball. Each of these sports would be unisex, allowing a mixture of each gender. If agreed on before that specific sport begins, men and women would be allowed to play together. Configuring the actual sports teams schedules these games would more than likely be planned around their schedules and at night to stay out the way of the actual school teams preparation. Sign ups for the leagues would be sent out via email to each student on campus. To make it easier each RA from each campus living housing would be asked to include each of the students in their buildings to be included in the email.

What is the difference between social responsibility for non-profit and for-profit sport organizations, and how is it possible for a sport franchise to develop a balance between maximizing profits and serving public interests?

After reading Module 3 materials (Textbook Ch. 5 & 6, and Weems, Garner, Oshiro, & Singer (2017)): How would you go about developing your own personal ethical standards, and how do you incorporate your personal ethical standards into the organization of which you work in/plan to work in?
What are the ethical responsibilities of the athletic administrator, coach, athlete, and spectator/fan? What is the relevance of social responsibility for the sport manager?
What is the difference between social responsibility for non-profit and for-profit sport organizations, and how is it possible for a sport franchise to develop a balance between maximizing profits and serving public interests?
Consider a sport management position you hold/will hold and envision your social responsibility in that position. What information will you rely on from the organization to ensure that you will carry out these responsibilities?
Be sure to reference the aforementioned module readings in your response. Including other references is recommended.
Initial Posts – I would recommend two to three paragraphs with a minimum of five sentences, per paragraph, per question for each initial post. Use your experience, outside sources, current events, etc. to help with your responses. Personally, I like to write with broad strokes in the beginning of my responses and then narrow down my focus. Imagine you are explaining the topic to someone who has no experience in our field. Failure to follow these standards will result in a deduction of your grade. I would expect the total number of words to be around 750. I would operate under the guise that you cannot write too much, but you certainly can write too little.
