Penn State football is a major brand with a very large fan base. Many areas of the school benefit from the large amount of revenue generated by the success of the football program. One of the major factors in the Penn State scandal was blind loyalty to one individual with total disregard for the children and the lives he was destroying. Many believe the four individuals that had the control to step in and stop this from happening either did not do so for fear of destroying the program or the hopes that it would somehow stop on its own (Crandall 2013). Jerry Sandusky was a top assistant and defensive mastermind for thirty years with Joe Paterno as the head coach.
Chris Bachelder, the author of “Rewatching the Theismann Injury”, published on November 18, 2015 by the New York Times, did a good job of further informing football watchers of the events that occurred when Washington Redskin quarterback, Joe Theismann suffered a career ending injury. Bachelder explained how most people say they know of or have even seen the injury to Theismann, but people may not remember everything that happened when his career was ended. The way Bachelder explained what happened was he did a memory test on himself to see what he remembered about the play and testing it with what really happened, which informs the reader on what transpired back in 1985. For example, Bachelder recalled that he was young at this time and his
He felt “degraded and humilated” when taking into custody, and said that “It was the most mentally draining thing I’ve ever had to endure,” “I felt like I never slept in days or weeks.” Parsons was known to be a kind gentleman in his community, a person who would go out of his way to help others, and having appealed his conviction and applied for bail, 300 residents signed a petition stating that they would welcome his return. In 1996, Newfoundland Court of Appeal stated that his conviction had been a mistake. Parsons was on bail for the time, but once again, he received a cycle of unjust treatment by the police. He had to follow strict conditions, signing in at the police station everday, and sometimes they would pretend they lost the information showing that he chcked in. Parsons felt that he “lived in fear,” afraid that he will be arrested again.
The movie “Remember the Titans” is based on a true story of white football players and African American football players being forced to integrate into one team. In the beginning there is much protest against this by the players, the parents, and the community. As the movie progresses, tensions ease by the players, however remains somewhat high amongst the parents and community. Finally towards the end, the community becomes united and accepts everyone for who they are as a person rather than the color of their skin. The year is 1971 in Virginia, Herman Boone is hired as the first African American football coach.
Titus spent ten years fighting enemies of Rome and won honor for the country. This heroic deed took so much out of him making him to feel powerless and unable to lead the country despite the idea of people thinking he should be the new emperor. He is held up as a representation of goodness for his strict admirations for traditions. This strict devotion to tradition causes his foes to take revenge against him. Titus pursues revenge too but dies in the process.
His family feared the worst, but he came through fine. After, Phineas had lived a normal life. He had full possession of reason, however his family saw changes in him. “His contractors, who regarded him as the most efficient and capable foreman in their employ previous to his injury, considered the change in his mind so marked that they could not give him his place again. In this regard, his mind was radically changed, so decidedly that his friends and acquaintances said he was “no longer Gage (Costandi, 2006).” This change in personality is understandable due to the fact that the tamping rod incident basically resembled a frontal lobotomy.
In the article, "Utah football coach suspends entire team to build character," by Deseret News, Utica High School football coach, Matt Labrum, takes a stand. When it comes to high school football, teachers and coaches tend to be very passive about the boys behavior and grades. I really admire what Labrum did, even though it may have been a hard descion. The boys deserved any punishment they got after cyberbulling, disrespect, and lack of effort when it came to their grades. Most people would just ignore their innapropiate actions just so they could continue with the season.
With Bo Jackson, his ambition wanted to doubt everyone that did not believe he could play two professional sports. Jackson’s talent in both football and baseball lead to him becoming sponsored by Nike for a new promotional quote called Bo Knows which had commercials of him playing almost every sport there was in the United States. The importance of this advertisement was that Bo Jackson had so much ambition, that he would be determined to master every sport he could. Also, his ambition was so great, he would be able to be used as a motivation for many other people across the globe. In 1990, Bo Jackson decided to leave the National Football League for Major League Baseball by leaving Kansas City to go to Chicago so he could play for the White Sox in 1991.
Michael Oher had an amazing career. First, he was homeless and now he became such a wonderful offensive tackle in the National Football League (NFL). “I would have dreams all the time about me playing in the NFL. Every day I woke up, I said to myself.. I'm going to work hard.. to get to that next level.” (“Michael Oher
I was on the affirmative team (that the aristocrats were worse than the bloodthirsty townsmen) What were the most effective points your team made? The most effective points my team made was the lack of clemency the aristocrats gave to the townspeople. The aristocrats also killed 250,000 townsmen vs the 40,000 aristocrats the townsmen killed. This was an effective point because it focuses on the reason why the townspeople rebelled, the townsmen only reflected the crultey that the aristocrats gave. What were the most effective points the other team made?
