NFL players should be role models not someone people feel ashamed of looking at on the T.V. screen. NFL players should be role models. When I watch football most of the time I see a lot of showboating. Sometimes it 's cool, but other times it just gets annoying. Some people do think that showboating isn 't really that bad unless you get a penalty. Also, parents are getting more concerned about their children getting to sucked in with the taunts and showboating. It is a problem that will never go away.
Sports are a very popular all around the world, and it is a billions dollars business, that fans gets a rush from watching it. There are many famous event all across the world that fans will pay top dollars to watch. It sometimes put pressure on the athletes to go out there and perform their best even if it puts there body at risk. The biggest problem sports don’t have a solution for are concussions. Year to year the numbers of concussions have to decreasing a lot because of the new technology that they are trying to create by the year but the numbers are still outrageous. Research have shown that the more the physical the sport there are more likely to have more fans.
The first reason sports fans go too far is that fans can hurt one another when rivalry gets intense. After big games the U.S. has to put up extra police officers because fan brawls are so common. Obviously if you need extra police officers out just for a sports game, than that’s too intense. Along with police force, when their favorite team loses people get
If American Football is an art, then its athletes paint with blood. This should surprise no one; the gridiron plays host to modernity’s most violent sport. In this unforgiving environment, it is all to common for former stars to flare out with career-ending injuries. As I kicked off my research on the National Football League (NFL), I intended to report on these injuries.
The game is closing down, your team is down by 2 points. Ten seconds are left in the game. Your team gets to throw the ball in from out of bounds. The pass is good, your player runs down the sideline... Pulls up to shoot. At the same time a whistle echoes through the bleachers, as fans cheer and boo. Mean time the shot goes in. Could this be the win? That's when you see the refs call, the player had stepped out of bounce, turning the ball over to the other team.
Now that is a whole different story! The players should be able to let their anger out. It is good for the soul! If a fight was to get too serious the referees would soon break it up or at least try, and there would be players penalized, and possibly kicked out of the match for good. If the players get into it and they stay on their feet usually refs will not break it up quite yet. The referees will come in whenever they think it is necessary, but that is usually when the players slip, or there is serious harm coming to one of the players. The hockey match does get stopped when there is a fight going on, and most of the times the sport announcers will hype the fight up telling the viewers each player’s name and what is going on in the fight. The game can be halted even longer though if the teams clear the benches and raid the rink. That does happen occasionally, but not too often. This would happen if a fight broke out and maybe someone gave another player on the opposing team a cheap shot and their team did not like it so
Imagine you are sitting at a baseball game eating cracker jacks or at a football game yelling because your team scored or you could be yelling at the refs because they made a bad call. There are many people that love sports but there was also a lot of people that loved sports when they became popular in the 1920’s. Sports have came a long why since then. They have became more competitive, the skill levels have improved a lot, and they are also easier to watch and keep up with because of how far technology has came.
The crowd goes crazy, but for the wrong cause. Nationwide Children 's Hospital states the danger football players encounter when they hit the field. There are many dangers for high school football, many high schoolers receive major damage specifically head trauma from football players. Although high school football is popular, it causes more harm then good by, having the players grow up with a high rate of injury, growing up with a high rate in depression, and the possibility of never being the same after a injury.
Sports are something most Americans can relate to; many of us played some type of sport as a kid and some of us are die-hard fans. Sports have developed with us as a society and have become an interwoven piece of our culture and their effects can be seen in many cities countrywide. The facilities where these teams play can become a centerpiece of the local community and the teams themselves can bring people from all walks of life together in search of one mutual goal, for their team to win. The controversy arises when it comes to how many professional stadiums are routinely being funded and whether taxpayers should foot the multi-billion-dollar bill. This has not always been a controversy, however, as prior to 1953 stadiums were largely funded
“He’s at the 40, 30, 20, 10! Oooh, I don’t think he’s getting up from that hit.” Recreational and professional football players are fun to watch, but these players have higher risks of injuries, that they are willing to put on the line. As a soon to be parent, I would hesitate to let my son play football because of the obvious warning signs shown, consequences of playing, and the devastations of the injuries.
Nicola S. mentions in her article how participants “will hide it in order to feel ‘the same’ as their peers, but this unfortunately can lead to one of the leading causes of death; suicide” ( Source 4). I disagree because the benefits of participating in a sport outweighs the risks it can have. The risks of sports, from increasing suicidal thoughts to physical injuries, are very unlikely to actually occur. These type of situations only take place when people who do not know how to learn sports or don't help getting along with teammates are involved. Nicola states, “When you are physically active, your mind is distracted from daily stressors. This can help you avoid getting bogged down by negative thoughts” (Source 3). So, sports are more beneficial than harmful because they help take away those negative thoughts that lead to that dangerous path. Also, participation can defend you from becoming depressed because you usually play a sport because it is exciting and you enjoy playing, or like the support system it gives you. So you become happy overall, since you’re doing something that you love and are passionate about. It creates an environment that is used to allow a person to calm down, relax, and have fun. These many positive impacts illustrate how it’s beneficial for one’s mental health, even though it can have some negative parts
Suicide. The action of killings oneself intentionally. A word synonymous with despair and tragedy, this act may be taken due to several reasons but if focused on a particular demographic, such as college students, the reasons may be clearer. It is widely accepted that causes of suicides are largely (if not completely) mentally related. With high amounts of stress and pressure coupled with ever amounting expectations on still developing minds, it does not seem difficult to correlate why the rates of suicide among college students is steadily increasing. Besides the lacking mental fortitude, these feelings of inadequacy and worthlessness within students, which may cause depression and even suicide, is caused by social or personal pressure from oneself or by their peers.
The burning scorch of summer is harsh at times, but it breathes life into the public. One of the many things summer brings is games, those of which include football, soccer, volleyball, and most importantly baseball. In my little city we manage to have a professional team for baseball, the Low A Quad City River Bandits stationed out at Modern Woodman park. As I enter my car and travel to work for them that burn of summer I briefly mentioned attacks, sweat beats down my brow and my only savior comes from air flow as I drive to downtown Davenport for the Bandits. Upon pulling into the stadium there are long lines of lumbering fans waiting to get their tickets or to get into the stadium.
The main reason why someone would commit suicide or at least attempt is to eliminate their emotional, physical, and/or mental pain. “Suicide remains among the leading causes of death of children under 14. And in most cases, the young people die from hanging” according to Bullycide: Bullying Related Suicides. Children are more likely to see of experience bullying when they are in middle school or junior high. Because of their exposure, they are harmed in any way or form. Most of the children want it to end and they think that suicide is the answer. Bullying Suicide statistics show that 13% of students create a plan, 16% strongly consider, and 8% actual attempt. We are talking about students. These students are considering suicide. Their end of their lives because of bullies repeatedly harming them. Meghan Neal of Daily News puts it to awareness of how many students that could be. She said “nearly 1 in 6 high school students has seriously considered suicide, and 1 in 12 has attempted it.” This really puts it to perspective on how students feel about their lives after being bullied. This isn’t healthy. There are many people today who still believe that they should commit suicide because they are put so low in life. All the emotional problems it has been given that and their lack in
A lot of English football club fans are passionate about their particular team. Most of them have obsessions of football like Nick Hornby. The obsession of football has resulted in Hooliganism in these years. Football hooliganism has been a major important point as a result of some happening. The fans behaviors are impolite especially foreigners or to other fans. Sometimes it is not just football. It is a combination of football and violence. Especially, English hooligans caused the death of thirty-eight people, most of them Juventus supporters occurred on 29 May 1985. In addition to this, some of Juventus fans died because the wall collapsed with the result in panic and a chaotic atmosphere. So these examples show that English Hooligans, who acted very cruelly at the Heysel Stadium make a bad impression for football. So, violence in football is common in this period. However; Nick Hornby doesn’t support this idea. Even if he is obsessed with football, the violence of football has always been criticized by
