ESPN's 15-Year TV Broadcasting Deal with the SEC

Schnebby
Danielle

Last year, ESPN and the SEC signed a 15-Year, $2.25 billion TV Broadcasting deal, which coincides with a 15-year $825 million deal ESPN currently has with CBS. (http://sports.espn.go.com/ncaa/news/story?id=3553033) (http://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/article/125635) What does this mean? This means that SEC sporting events, especially football, will receive a ridiculous amount of exposure to about everyone in the country. While ESPN and the SEC are not taxpayer funded organizations, there is...

When Running a Seeded Tournament, the Best Players Should be Playing the Worst Players

mongeese

In most sports, a tournament is held at the end of the season where the top 16, 32, or 64 teams are arranged into a tournament. These players are already ranked by their season games. My arguments is that to have the fairest tournament, the Best Plays Worst method should be used. Here's a list of the different methods: 1. Pairing In this method, the #1 team plays the #2 team, the #3 team plays the #4 team, etc. In the second round, the winners of the top two games play each other. The pattern...

The patriots are the greatest football team in NFL history

Hello, my argument today is in favor for the patriots being the greatest football team in history. As everyone knows the patriotshave the best offense, and their entire starting offensive line is going to the pro bowl. Tom Brady is the best quaterbackplaying now, and can throw with procision and accuracy. Not only are they going to win the superbowl again, while being undefeated, but theyare going to surpass many other records. If anyone doesn't agree with this, you should go to hell...

Eli Manning is Overrated

Hello I've been a Giants fan since as long as I can remember (2000 Super Bowl). I remember how good it felt when we got Eli and today when he won his first playoff game. There has been a lot of talk about how he's overrated, that is just false. Since Eli was a full time starter in 2005, he has -been to the playoffs every year (as of 1/6/08 1-2 rec.) -other teams to do that are the Seahawks, Colts, and Pats -won a division title in 2nd year -started every game since first start -other...

Flat tax is a good idea.

First of all I would like to keep this debate as conceptual and philisophical as possible. I want to debate the idea as a theory. The flat tax is a great idea. It saves the government tons of money and labor hours that a complex progressive tax code causes. If you remove the complicated and confusing deductions and safe havens for tax money that allow the wealthy to pay less in taxes, they would actually have to pay their fair share. Believe it or not, the wealthy would pay more in a flat ta...

Resolved: Baseball Sucks

WrathofGod
Postup10101

I want to briefly explain why I think baseball is barely a sport, and when compared to other sports in the US, makes me embarrassed that it was created here. Baseball is the only major American sport where players can -Consistently be overweight -Use legal narcotics while playing (chew) -Excel with illegal steroids on a regular basis -Receive any sum of money without fear of fair play rules -Wear jewelry while playing without fear that it may inhibit them -Sit in a dugout for half the g...

Texas Holdem poker- "is a variation of the standard card game of poker. The game consists of two cards being dealt face down to each player and then five community cards being placed by the dealer—a series of three ("the flop") then two additional single cards ("the turn" and "the river"), with players having the option to check, bet or fold after each deal, i.e. betting may occur prior to the flop, "on the flop," "on the turn," and "on the river." King- 4 cards in the standard playing card d...
