Many people who follow hockey watch it just for the fights and when a fight occurs they cheer on their favorite player in the fight. Playe... ... middle of paper ... ...that occurs it is losing their appeal. The management of all the leagues, teams, and player have to take a look at who and what they want to represent and be represented by. The image is something the management have to control and if they don't make more restrictions on the players and change the fact that a lot of players are seen as criminals then it will have a huge effect on the image of sports. And all the players that arent out there committing crimes and are doing the right thing they themselves need to get upset by the fact that others are giving their sport a bad name.
We constantly watch celebrities commit crime on television and observe people being slaughtered multiple times a day. Youth can virtually do the slaughtering of the other characters while playing first person shooter video games. These forms violence in our media is overwhelming. To hear, to see, and to virtually experience the negative actions have a negative affect on the youth, especially if more than one of these influences are being experienced by the same individual. Drugs, poverty, and an unstable home life are some of the already factors that influence violence; if the already known factors are combined with media violence, “the result is an explosion of violent crime in any nation in which it takes place” suggests Lt. Col. David Grossman (par.
A writer named Mike Lopresti wrote an article called “Violence at American sports stadiums becoming all too common” which was about a Raiders and 49ers exhibition game and said “ The final statistics from the Raiders-49ers game included two shootings in the parking lot, and one severe beating in a restroom. Speculation is, the teams’ heated neighborhood rivalry might be a factor” (Lopresti 2011). These altercations amongst the fans over a game that is meaningless is shocking. Someone could have been killed given the circumstances, and this violence among the fans is not only limited to American football games, but also professional soccer games and violence with these fans can result in greater consequences.
Fans seem to emulate the violence they watch in sports and spectator violence is increasing as participant injuries rise(Yeager 11). Mass media contributes to the acceptability of sports. It provides exposure to sports-related violence via television, magazines, newspapers, and radio, which provides many examples to children who may imitate such behavior. Also it often glamorizes players who are controversial and aggressive. Reading this, I couldn’t help but think of the honorable Mike Tyson.
Violence in Sport Introduction Violence in sport is a problem that grows larger every year. This is attributed mostly to factors such as fans taking their favorite teams too seriously, or simply an excess display of recklessness. Spectators that watch the actions of their favorite teams are adversely affected by them and can react purely on aggression and emotion. In the NFL, some teams have players that fans watch solely to deliver big hits against opponents. Fans encourage the behavior that these players were brought to the team for, but the behavior is causing harm to other players.
Certain things on TV and movies have inspired people (I could think of any other word to use so I used theirs) to set their wives on fire, lie down in the middle of the roads, rape, steal, murder, and to do shootings. Out of 1,000 studies it is proven that media violence can have a negative affect on adults and even children. When people watch these shows it makes them more aggressive and anti-social. After a few days of watching these shows people become less sensitive to violence and to victims of violence. After that happens they begin to have a hunger for more violence in entertainment and in real life.
“Some level of violence will always remain in sports” such as football, hockey, and rugby (“Violence Inevitable”). Sports such as these thrive off of violence and they must if they are to stay around. This violence has impacted sports from the players to the fans and has changed the way some sports are played. Fans are also getting much more rowdy. More security is needed at certain sporting events in order to keep the fans under control.
Introduction; As we watch sports and enjoy the rivalry against the other team we are playing, our emotions sometimes get the best of us and from that anger shows, we turn into monsters and violence is In-turn the outcome. Why do we show this side when we should be having fun with the competition we are in against the rival teams? We see the toll of destruction and deaths that violence causes but we still have to show anger when the opposing team wins and what gets me more is the violence when our teams win national titles and championships. This is not to Say we should not have fun or be serious about sports, but we should realize it is a sport. Does anger need to happen in sports?
Violence is defined as the use of excessive physical force, which causes or has obvious potential to cause harm or destruction to an individual. Violence in sports comes in many forms, and divides into social and cultural factors related to the sport ethic, gender ideology, the dynamics of social class and race, and the tactics used in sports. Violence in sports has gone too far because sports violence has become so severe in sports, that players are injured each years. However, in sports some violence has become entertaining for the fans and fans would begin their own violence around with other fans that support opposing teams to win. The violence in sports can cause severe casualties from collisions to concussions that may result in long-term mental or physical damage.
The hate is spread from the terrorist to the whole country, realizing what they had done makes the people angry and filled with rage. As the terrorists made their get-away in a van, police started off to find them. Police blocked major roadways and streets to try and corner them. Eventually the police stopped the van and the two brothers got out and started firing shots, with the police firing back. Both attackers were wounded by police bullets.
