One way I show selflessness, is when I’m not having the best game and the coach pulls me, I don’t throw a fit and get mad at the coach. Some player get in their head once they get pulled and get angry with their coach and that’s not going to make the situation better. Pulling a player that is performing isn’t a punishment, it’s just a way for the player to settle down and get their head right again. I understand that it’s the best decision for my team if I get pulled because I’m not doing good. Being selfless is pushing yourself to be better for your team and coaches, its being the best teammate and supporter.
The conflict in Remember the Titans is that the football team doesn’t get along very well because they are different races. The team members don’t want anything to do with each other, pretty much, because of their races. However, in the end the conclusion ended up being that the team cared for and loved one another. They didn’t care what race the other members might’ve been, the team ended up being best friends and even showed that toward the school. Conflict and resolution in Lay That Trumpet in Our Hands is also a big theme developer.
I’m left wondering what would the outcome be like had Arthur been hands down the better athlete of the two? The coach made it seem like the choice was made because Arthur wasn’t excelling on the court like they expected him to. I don’t understand how its legal to lie to these kids like this. There should be some kid of legal binding contract to make sure these kids are taken care of no matter what. You drag them out of their comfort zone, change up everything they’ve know only to kick them back out on the streets when things don’t go in a positive direction.
The goal of Furness was to show that the NFL’s denial was because of the perception that players are viewed by not because they might and will lose revenue. In the documentary League in Denial “the cultural dynamic is one of the focal points of the film’s dedicated segment on media and the marketing of NFL violence” (pg.54). I don’t agree with the objective paradigm of masculinity because the NFL and athletes shouldn’t be defined by their profession to all be masculine. The method used in this essay was an analyzation method in the breakdown of the NFL concussion crisis and the PBS production League of Denial. From my perspective it should’ve been a rhetorical analysist in finding the flaws in the documentary and its accuracy relating to today’s game.
Football players should not be punished for their opinion and issue in which they protest in the United States because it brings awareness to society issues, use social status, and even though people disagree that the protest should not happen during the National Anthem. However, it the best time to show the fans what issues they are protesting. This act of protest is nothing new to America, but it has only just become an outrage due, to the involvement of the president and many other average citizens that claim it to be an unfit way to protest. The first instance of this act dates all the way back to World War II, when the Supreme Court voted down a demand that the flag should be saluted during the Pledge of Allegiance (Sachs 1). Then time goes by until 1996 when basketball star Abdul-Rauf was suspended for the length of one game, due to him refusing to stand for the national anthem for a religious purpose.
Being at an NFL game was not the correct time or place to hold a silent protest, and there are people that fight to give Americans the freedoms and rights that they have, so why disrespect those who risk their lives for the USA. It may be one simple act of protest, but not only does it disrespect those fighting but their family and friends too. Like every situation in life, there are two sides to every story, both sides of this one have reasonable arguments. In conclusion, most people frown upon any type of act to disrespect those who give them their freedoms and rights, as well as those who’s duty is to keep communities
Holden tends to hate confrontation, throughout the novel and always is about to do something but chooses in the end to not. Caulfield is his own antagonist he craves company but takes pride in his idea of people being too “phony” that he pushes everyone away, he takes his own happiness away and alienates himself from people who love and want to help him. When attending Pencey prep Caulfield spent his time hating everyone and did not socialize with others. He talks about how everyone when going to football games all hang out but he never mentions himself going to
Henry saw himself as a hero before he got into a battle, but when faced with the reality of war, his imaginations did not come true. For instance, during the march to battle, Henry was continuously complaining about how all the walking was tiring him out and that it was all for nothing. Henry said, “I can't stand this much longer, I don't see what good it does to wear out our legs for nothin’” (Crane 35). Henry knew what he was signing up for when he joined the army, yet in difficult conditions he lacked the motivation to keep going. Another scenario of cowardice shown through dialogue was when Henry was complaining about always losing battles and blaming it on his generals.
By first amendment rights, you can protest however you like, but it should not be on the job. You could lose your job, cause problems for your company, or league, and create an uproar with your clients, or viewers. The NFL is now seen as a football league that allows its players to protest our country on the job. Many Americans are very upset with the protesting because of it’s disrespect, and most people will not single out the players. They will look at the team, or the league, as a whole to blame for the protesting.
These thoughts could stem from the awareness that they might not be a good fit for the sport that they have been playing. The level of enjoyment greatly and quickly diminishes when you actually realize that what you’re doing isn’t fun anymore. Some athletes realize that they simply do not have the necessary skill set to further compete and/or pursue to participate in higher levels or competition. This could bring about a frustration or disinterest that could make a child want to quit. As a personal example, I have a student who is not really physically gifted but still enjoys trainings and drills during varsity practice.
The referees wouldn’t throw a flag if the offence was complaining, so why should they for the defense. Roger Cordell the commissioner of the NFL needs to repel this rule because it is not right to give the defense an advantage. It wouldn`t be much fun to play ageist a defense that always wins. Even if so the game would be very boring because the defense wouldn’t let the offense go ant where. The NFL has many more unnecessary rules and hopefully most of thin will be reaped and never talked about again.
Symptoms such as mood swings are a very serious condition that needs to be payed attention to. Thomas still is not able to control his mood swings after all of these years. I agree with Thomas when he says “One thing that I realized is that discussing the effects of concussions and the reality of the situation doesn 't make me less of a man, less tough, less loyal to the National Football League, a less love for the game," he said. "All it means is that I 'm not an ignorant fool, and that I don 't ignore factual evidence that this is happening to not only football players, but [other athletes]”. It is very important to understand this is not a local issue in just football.
If we knew everything that everyone in there did there could be some miniscule reason for each to be expelled, but they’re not. It is not the job of the Hall of fame to show the best people there was personality wise, but to show the players, this should be how it is, recognizing players for their skill and talent on the field, yet we are not letting a man perfectly talented enough join, for what, a few bets. No, I’m not trying to downplay the scandal, and I agree with the statement that what he did was morally wrong, but we should still recognize him. We should “lay out the fact and let people decide for themselves what was right and wrong” (Stark,
Dwight Lowery was mentally prepared to get the ball. Instead of just doing what the coach said he stood watching thinking of what he was going to do. In fact, Sanneh explains how in football it isn’t always correct to score a touchdown. “There are a few situations in football where scoring an easy touchdown is the wrong thing to do. Might this have been one of them?” (Sanneh 57).
However, Wright has shown that he will sometimes over pursue plays leaving teammates out to dry. He was also limited in pass coverage as he was asked to blitz a lot in Arizona’s 3-3-5 defensive scheme. A player like Wright with the athletic ability and football instincts at the linebacker position would be a great fit to the Steelers defense. Selecting Scooby could be a boom or bust proposition for the Black & Gold. The Steelers are already dealing with their own china doll at middle linebacker (Ryan Shazier) and would be a risky move to bring in another backer with durability issues.
