To begin with, Salzberg makes a seemly unresearched claim, he claims that “Our universities are providing a free training ground for the super-wealthy owners of professional football teams, while getting little in return”(Salzberg 1). In this quote, he states that universities get little in return, but if one does a little research, the reader can see universities receive a great amount of benefits. For example, colleges can receive money from games in their stadiums whether they win or lose from tickets, concussions, players, and etc. The sports department is a big money makers in universities, not to mention colleges can also can gain publicity, if a player gets famous off the college’s team.
Sweeping the hearts of Americans, football rises well above other sports in a poll on citizen’s favorite sport with a total of 35% of the population. Distracted by the exciting football gatherings with family and friends, we all tend to neglect the serious dangers of football. Although football provides activity for children, parents should not let their children
It is currently of common knowledge that the National Football League is participating in the improvements and advancements of technological and psychological methods with which to better protect players, it is therefore not an indiscretion within our responsibilities to view the NFL. If the NFL were not attempting to sway and minimize injury and abuse for the ultimate betterment of players, then viewership would decline. Pioneering within the technologies and protections has been well publicized, and league action has prevented a negative fan reaction to the harm of players. Injury or its potential is now met with immediate and unrelenting sidelining and subsequent evaluation
Football is a great sport to teach young boys to work for what they want which is winning the game and eventually taking the championship. When my child plays football, he will gain character and that he can use that to benefit him on life skills. Although some would argue that their child cannot play football because it's too dangerous and is a great cause of concussions or any type of injuries, parents also need to understand the viewpoint of their children. Understanding they want to do and extracurricular activities they want to be a part of.

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.
There is just under a year until the presidential election, yet candidates are well into their campaigns, sinking large chunks of money into advertising and traveling state to state. Banning hateful TV ads would also make sense because they are often funded by Super PACs as I have already mentioned. It seems that most other counties only have limits on spending, because there is no point of limiting how much a candidate can get if he or she is only allowed to spend a certain amount of
Instead of that we need to say “he stood up for us” or “he's a President that wouldn't let us down even for money”. All of this is just saying that we aren't in a look out for a perfect president were in a look out for a President who cares for us. The president should try to make this country a better place to live even though it is going well right now but there some thing that our president can do so he can change these
The Amendments that led up to the 24th were just as significant, but brought no real change. This was huge for the equal rights movement and gave African-Americans a real opportunity to vote and have a voice in politics to one day change the lives of them and their children to come. Poll taxes were a capital tax that applied equally to adults. They were a decent form of revenue for some governments until the mid-1800s. Poll taxes are often closely associated with voting rights in the United States.
It is shown that it will cost a total of 80 billion dollars, putting the United States in more of a money knot. Although the idea of free college is grandiose, Obama’s plan for free college is not feasible and is only putting the great nation in more of a bind. Not only is Obamas plan
In the BIG 10 conference Commissioner James Delaney occupation is to manage the media contracts, from which the members of its conference reap a substantial percentage of revenue to pay for its athletic programs. James Delaney was one of the prominent individuals in television marketing, and the Division 1 subdivision college football playoffs. Delaney has a keen interest in generating money for athletic programs, and considered the stakeholders that were affected by his media contracts. Delaney stated, “There’s no enthusiasm for funding these programs by central administration’s so were basically on our own…I’ve found it much easier to generate revenue than to cut cost. I’m being honest with you” (Sandomir, 2006, p. 8-8; Thomas, 2009,
The American dream is a theme of the book from the very first few pages. Kennedy’s family on both his father’s and his mother’s sides trace their roots to Irish immigrants who came to America for a better life. Most of the time when people talk about the “American dream,” they don’t know that they’re talking about. Both sides of the aisle use it at irrelevant times, when it’s buzzword nothing crap. But it’s simpler than you’d think.
Nonetheless, the electoral college should be abolished because citizens’ votes should all count equally all states should get the same attention from presidential candidates, and everyone’s voice should be heard. The electoral college system ultimately fails the citizens of bigger states because their votes don’t count as much as those in smaller states. How? Well, as previously mentioned, there’s 538 electors who are distributes
My first topic/ issue is with the NFL and their team owners; the basic idea of this issue is how the NFL swindles the state and the taxpayers to buy them new things while on the other side the tax payers get bent over. In this article from “the Atlantic” it says how the Seahawks built a new stadium and the cost 560 million, 390 million which was tax payers money. They only pay 1 million for rent while the rest is just a profit to the team and the owners, the tax payers are paying a lot of money to build a new stadium while a lot of it is just going back into a billionaires pocket (Paul Allen). I don 't like it, I think paying guys millions to play football and act like idiots most of the time is ridiculous. Most of these guys are very uneducated
Challenges of the late 19th century between Ulysses S. Grant and Frederick Jackson Turner. Grant was known for his Inaugural Address he wrote on March 4th, 1869 he talked about rights for every man no matter what race to have equal rights and be able to vote anywhere in the United States.
