A fan is an active member of the community that entrenches themselves in a community and are part of surreal moments. Sports fosters a great sense of community in any region because sports are a unifying factor. The community could extend from “players and fellow fans” to “regional pride, family relationships, color preferences, aesthetic tastes and even moral standards”(Simons). This unifying factor provides a culture and fan bases that allows for the fans to immerse themselves. The fans could be calm like Kawhi Leonard or as outgoing as Wayne Maybry’s Oakland alter ego, Violator, but either one does not take away that sport is way to “escape their normal daily life, as well as social inhibitions and express themselves freely by cheering for their team, as well as lash out at rivals” (Schaik).
Team players have started to reduce in the modern sports era. Many players have become self-centered, even in team sports. High school athletes always want their names in the paper or want to get acknowledged by coaches or friends, but true team players do things that many people do not see. They may lead by example during practice or do little things that make a difference in the game. Linemen, on a football team, are great examples of this because the quarterback, running backs, and wide receivers get all the credit for great plays and touchdowns, while linemen have to block the three-hundred-pound man in front of them every time, or the play will get blown up.
The NFL has always consisted of male players, but that needs to change. I strongly believe that girls should be able to play football because we love football too, it’s unfair and sexist, and we deserve an opportunity to participate in sports. Being a girl myself, I can say that it’s pretty tough being a girl that loves football. Most of the time, I don’t get to play something that gives me confidence simply because of my gender. Not only do boys love football, but we do too.
You can enjoy the moments when you play with your friends and family as well as when you join a soccer team. You will be meeting new friends that you have not met before. It is helpful because you and your team will have rules to do when you play in the field, and they build trust with you which you can know everyone strength from weakness. Gaining a friend can increase your popularity which also at the same time will encourage you to play much better. For example, I have been playing soccer for a long time with my buddies, and they call me in every time there is a match.
Now, Sport becomes one of an import part of society and probably have a large role in many people's dreams. Currently, more than ever, sports event overwhelm headlines and some athlete has turned out to be national legends. In this essay, I would like to explain how sport can unite the community that has been divided by the nation The possibility that we would be united by sport, it is extraordinary yearning, isn't it? We live in a world that is progressively fragmented. Our ability to construct, support and maintain significant and quality connections are under colossal weight, even just from the sheer pace of life if nothing else.
Sport and identity are two very broad and complex topics that play major roles in society. Throughout the history of sport, sport has been very effective in helping communities, cities and even countries establish and/or maintain an identity. This essay will discuss how sport contributes to the development of an identity. This paper will be divided into two main parts; first, the relationship between sport and identity will be discussed, then, using one national and one regional example, sport as a means of developing an identity will be examined. Sport is a huge part of society.
The research on the identity, nation and immigration in football set us to consider different conceptualisations of community: community as a geographical/urban locale, community as a social system, community as a sense of identity/belonging, and community as an ideology. The key point to draw from the ‘community’ debate around football has largely been started from the assumption that football clubs emerged to satisfy a functional need for social bonding whether these forms of bonding were approximate to ‘traditional’, geographical or emotional ties. At the same time the blur notion of ‘community’ is associated with connecting identities which is strongly expressed through football, especially in the case of Cape-Verdean team. Community being
Supporters are also needed to support the leaders and everyone else. A great supporter can be a good employee and could get a great job. It is hard to learn if your a good supporter or a good leader on your own, but with competitive sports, children can learn early in life. Sure you can learn on your own, but with sports, you have your teammates which you can either support or lead. If you learn that you are a great leader or supporter without sports it is hard to grow your skills, but with sports, you can increase your skills without even trying with your teammates
Furthermore, there aren’t that many Asian players in the Premier League as a majority of the players are from England. Most of the Asian players’ “parents [want] them to focus on education” (Independent). The leagues started to accept and welcome Asian players because they there was lots of unrecognized talent. Even though Asians were accepted to play in the league, not many did as they continued to focus on school.
