Coyle used examples of tennis and later in the book he used an example of people playing the piano. Coyle tried to appeal to use with trying to use different subjects as examples.
Nike also utilizes the promotion tactic of being able to design and order a unique pair of tennis shoes that fits different people’s tastes online. By giving consumers the ability to design their own product on a company’s website, it helps to increase the traffic on that website and it makes consumers feel that the company sees consumer’s wants and needs as a priority.

Thus, as a first-order effect, mass shootings appear to increase firearm sales, thereby leading to a higher valuation for the firms that manufacture them. As a result, in the immediate aftermath of a mass shooting, there is an appearance of a movement towards firearm regulation, with a short-term effect on increased sales of firearms in the short to medium term.

Gun sales and stock prices are one and the same, the companies, that re-ceive these increased gun sales stocks are directly affected, however, mass shootings, in general, do not have a singular effect of the stock market.

Professional sports provide an attractive setting to test for (expectation-based) reference dependence and loss aversion due to the availability of vast pre-play betting odds that can serve as proxies for expectation-based reference points. Specifically, a paper by Bartling et. al. (2015) takes advantage of such a setting by using data from professional football leagues, where they analyze behavior in terms of card assignments, and substitution decisions. I aim to extend on their research, adding additional measures of behavior to analyze the presence and effects of expectation-based reference-dependence on the behavior of players’ and coaches’ in the English Premier
Within the last two decades, collegiate athletics has experienced enormous financial profits lighting the debate that the student-athletes’ in the larger revenue generating sports should be entitled to a share of the revenue their sport creates for their school program, the NCAA, and any other commercial purposes.
