    Numbers unacceptable for women in decision-making roles

    Published September 15, 2014

    As an impressive array of sports leaders gathers for the second annual Game Changers Conference this week, let’s reflect on how far we have come this year and how far we have to go to achieve any form of gender equity in sport. I was a speaker at last year’s Game Changers Conference and was heartened by how many people turned out on the occasion of the first SportsBusiness Journal conference on gender. There was an array of informative and inspirati...

    Will scandal permanently alter NFL’s public image?

    Published September 15, 2014

    We all saw the different constituencies last week call for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to resign. From newspaper editorials — The Kansas City Star stated that owners “should fire Goodell for how poorly he served their multibillion-dollar industry” — to major-market columnists — The Washington Post’s Mike Wise wrote Goodell is “an overpaid, tone-deaf functionary” who “needs to go.”    Politicos followed and groups like the National Organization for...

    Published September 08, 2014

    Getting a sense of reader interest in our stories is always difficult. A lot of it is anecdotal or through conversation. Most of it comes through the data we study on readership and online metrics. It’s not entirely precise, and our online numbers can be skewed by the number of social media followers of certain writers or how aggressive we are in pushing a story outside our paywall. But it does provide us a sense of what’s resonating. With that in mi...

    Benefits of long-term sports partnership worth going ‘all in’

    Published September 08, 2014

    Two major players in the sports industry — Nike and NBCUniversal — have made significant, decades-long investments in content they clearly value and did so at a time when many industry experts are hesitant to look much beyond 2020.  On those grounds, these organizations appear to have pushed a lot of poker chips into the middle of the table. Said another way, they went “all in” — and “all in” for a while. The cards as we see them? Nike’s agreement to...

    Technology marries a sports event’s social media, activation ROI

    Published September 08, 2014

    Last spring, my sports marketing graduate class at the University of South Florida was working on a project for its participation in Fox Sports University. Each group had to address how to create more fan interaction and connectivity with the sports product. Three of the four groups had technology solutions that involved an app or some type of radio-frequency identification device to solve the problem. I was intrigued that this was how they set ou...

    Growth of a game: How tennis has changed, where U.S. stands

    Published September 01, 2014

    AAs the 2014 U.S. Open enters its second week, I am frequently asked two questions about the current state of professional tennis: ■ What has changed in the pro sport since 1968, when the first U.S. Open was held at Forest Hills and when amateurs could compete with professionals for prize money? Everything has changed since tennis went professional in 1968.  From a technical perspective, tennis is a different sport now, transformed by power. Wood rac...

    U.S. soccer growth hinges on player development

    Published August 25, 2014

    Is soccer as a business proposition in the U.S. a stock I’m buying? (SportsBusiness Journal, Aug. 11-17) I think your question needs to be answered in two parts. Top-flight international soccer friendlies are a great investment in the U.S. As some of the people interviewed for your article said, Americans love excellence. Watching the top players in the world compete in the World Cup or for their club teams is a treat that people are willing to pay for and will continue to pay for. To answer ...
