When people hear about if college athletes should get paid they would say no because they think the athletes would get paid millions of dollars. It is not like that, college athletes would not be paid that high they would only need to be paid so they can live a decent life. They have to balance their lives with school and their sports. College athletes should get paid because The NCCA is billion dollar business and the athletes don’t get any money, athletes spend more hours working for the sport than the average American, it helps athletes manage their money.

The start of the 2015 NFL season has been anticipated all year. Since the end of last season, many fans, analysts, and teams have been counting down to the start of the regular season, proclaiming that this year is, “our year.” One of those team that has a gratifying chance of having “their year” is the Green Bay Packers. The Packers are one of the present day elite teams in the NFL. With arguably the best quarterback in the NFL, Aaron Rodgers, a high powered offense, a mediocre defense, and a young, yet experienced roster, Green Bay is a Super bowl favorite in the 2015 season.

The inaugural game on September 17, 1967 in the open top Third Tulane Stadium(SF); they lost 27-13 to the Los Angeles Rams and wouldn’t gain their first win until November 5th when they beat the Philadelphia Eagles, 31-24.

In 1920, the National Football League (NFL) was founded and found success throughout the years. As the NFL grew more popular, wealthy entrepreneurs sought to buy their own teams in new cities, expanding the league. NFL commissioner Bert Bell refused to expand the league as he was being accused of monopolizing the football industry. As a result, Lamar Hunt decided to create his own league, thus the American Football League (AFL) was founded in 1960, challenging the authority of the NFL.
The Buffalo Bills were the team of the 90’s. With players like Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Andre Reed, and Bruce Smith, who could lose, right? Wrong. The Buffalo Bills, or as ESPN author Dave Schoenfield calls them,“The Beatable Bills,” ruled the AFC in the late 80’s and early 90’s making it to four straight Super Bowls and losing every single one (Schoenfield).The Bills are sometimes are referred to as the greatest losers, but as Bills former owner Ralph Wilson once said “ No matter what the scoreboard said, this team was a champion in my heart.”(Caffrey 38)
Breaking over 9 Quarter Back records, and potentially various more in the future, people either hate or love New England Patriot Quarter Back, Tom Brady. Generally speaking, there is no between. The real question is: "to hate or not to hate" this record-breaking beast, with 4 Super Bowl rings on his hand. Simple; not to hate.
People know that during half time at football games two bands play and in the band there are the color guard. No one ever stops to think about them and how they came to be. The fans just know that they are there most likely to just entertain them. They never stop to think twice as to how color guard was made and the big meaning behind it all. That there is a rich history of how and why they came to be.
Sports were as popular as ever in the 1950s. Baseball and boxing were huge, while football and golf were growing. The 50s produced its share of remarkable athletes, stellar teams and history making sports events that grabbed everyone’s attention. The 1950s were also a time of comfortable prosperity and the economy was back on track.
In the 1920s, there was a great demand for entertainment, especially with the improvements of the middle class and the development of disposable income and leisure time. With entertainment came sports, and with sports came racism. Many sports, football in particular, was on the edge about being segregated or not. According to Sports Institute Magazine, “ The degree to which these degrading segregation policies hurt black communities – in and outside of sports”. Jackie Robinson once said, “I’m not concerned with your liking or disliking me… All I ask is your respect as a human being.” This was the main problem in sports. Coaches and managers didn't even care how good players were or what their personality was like. If you were a minority player, they didn't want to invest in you or coach you. They just didn't want anything to do with you.
For the first time since 1990, the New York Giants are the reigning Super Bowl champions. Their thrilling victory over the 18-0 New England Patriots is already being called one of the greatest football games every played. Even casual football fans found themselves following the ups and downs of Big Blue last season. It all started when bookie Tim Mara bought the New York Giants in 1925 for a whopping $500 and then almost went bankrupt when they lost their first three games. Six years later, Mara passed team ownership to his sons Jack and Wellington. Wellington, who was 14 at the time, co-owned the team until he passed away in 2005.
The ground below is rattling to the thunderous beat of rambunctious spectators with the anticipation of the battle that is set to be fought on this very field! The senseless chaos ceases as a loud roar erupts from the stands as the Green Bay Packers emerge from the tunnel. “With 13 super bowl rings and 53 postseason appearances it’s easy to say that Green Bay is one of the most dominant teams in the NFL” (Packers team Records). The iconic team has many notable attributes that set them apart, but one of the most recognizable is there historic stadium, Lambeau Field. Lambeau’s historical contributions to the NFL are ones that will never
Racism in team names such as the Cleveland Indians and the Washington Redskins causes a lot of controversy because of the meaning of the name because it obscures the reality of Native Americans experiences, traditions, and place in U.S. history. Some people think that this isn’t really a problem but others want the teams to change their names because of how much they are bothered by it. I do not think teams should have to change their names because if the NFL or NBA doesn’t see a problem with the names then there probably isn’t a problem with it. People are probably over reacting over this thing.
The sport I chose to observe was college football. I decided to chose this sport because football is a sport my family enjoys to watch. Also I enjoy watching football more than any other sport because there is so much that could happen, in football many unexpecting plays could happen, and each game is different than the last one. The game I chose to watch was a college football game between the University of Notre Dame and the University of Miami that took place at the University of Miami on Saturday, November 11, 2017. The game started with Miami kicking the ball to Notre Dame. The first touchdown was 2nd down and goal it was Miami’s ball and player 8 on Miami’s team caught the ball in the endzone. Then Miami made the extra point kick making the score Miami 7-0. In the first quarter 3rd down and 6
We can 't forget our founders. As Lydia Huntley Sigourney sites in one of her poems "Indian Names", "how can the red men be forgotten, while so many of our states and territories, bays, lakes, and rivers, are indelibly stamped by names of their giving?” That is a perfect example of how not only sports teams use representable names of such but also our land and different dominions are named after Native Americans. Nudging out sports teams in such way isn 't fair when it 's being used for other entities, and pulls out the irony from
