no doubt about it... the world of sport have changed - some for the better, some
even happened to the local school cricket, footy (touch or tackle), beach football
game with no commercial interests, no sponsors, no media... just sport for sports
and funs sake? Sadly, those days appear all but gone.
its more akin to 'The Running Man' (movie) with valuable purse money up for grabs,
major sponsorship and media rights all the rage, and sports entertainment whiz
kids Paul Heyman and his client, Brock Lesnar have it all figured out, and kudos
to them... be a dual sports entertainment players and get double the payday. Hey,
that's smart business.
betting remains a key part of the sports media landscape, and with so much money
involved the sports betting outfits won't be looking to leave Australia any time
soon, despite political jabs in the Aussie newspapers on an ever frequent basis.
pure is the UFC and Tennis, and now cricket has come back under the microscope.
Sports ambassador and sponsorship deals can pay off care, mortgages and even buy
mansions, so should the Australian and international sports loving community even
hope for sport to remain pure?
got WAG's in tears, players named and shamed, video camera evidence, and so it
goes on. How much punishment is fair cop to a sportsman who betters busted cheating?
1 year, 3 years, life? How does cricket's latest scandal match up to Bodyline?
Nine look to scrap the Cricket, and do a turnaround and put on pro wrestling in
its place, reversing the situation from back in 1977 when the WCW wrestling got
dumped for World Series of Cricket? Those who fail to learn from their mistakes
are doomed to fail again. At least pro wrestling promoters and participants publicly
admit its a work, with pre determined winners and outcomes. How much on play action
via the cricket pitch, footy oval and such can we trust? Do our eyes and sometimes
minds deceive us when sometimes its like something doesn't add up?
all this nonsense about NRL players deliberately getting penalties which help
tire out the opposition in the process? Yes, they are playing within the rules,
but it would against the spirit of the game right?
business is also entertainment business and big business, but has the business
part of it reduced the enjoyment of the game for fans and sports media? I would
is now over exposed, and largely over paid. We know that many sportsmen and women
only have a certain number of years that they can earn the big bucks participating
in the sport they love, but just maybe the massive paydays have got out of control?
the solution to the over commercialism of sport? Not sure. There's existing media,
sponsorship deals, and player contracts, and these can't be dropped in a eye blink,
nor should they be. Athletes have right to make a living, but they should not
be trying to fool the public into believing that their sport is pure?
the decades a number of media analysts and commentators have said that pro wrestling
is the most honest form of sport - sports entertainment - promoters and players
admit that its a work and pre determined. They are not trying to hoodwink the
public to beveling the sport is pure. The pain and sacrifice, the risks are real,
but its a show folks.
boxing on the other hand often is scrutinized closely, and rightly so. Three judges,
and often the 3rd judge appears way off on their judgment, and bingo, a big upset,
and often a big payday for the sports punters who got their inside information.
Did someone just say that boxing is linked to the mob who used to call Las Vegas,
Nevada, its home? We thought so.
many questions, so few answers.
you enjoy sports, that is, the business of sport, great, but know that you are
watching a form of entertainment and showbiz, with or without ring girls, grid
girls or a Wheel Of Fortune beauty.
sports to watch with an evil or at least eagle eye include snooker, darts and
even the local or regional rugby game. Unfortunately, if there's a dollar to be
made, there's always the dark side of sports business that may like to further
put a black eye on the sport is question.
can you, the sports loving public do to help sport keep an emphasis on sport,
not so much of the business? Tell your sportsmen and sportswomen about it. Tell
your local MP, even the Prime Minster, Write to sports media, sports commissions,
start a GetUp campaign, hold a protect... If you have mixed results with the above,
you can always vote with your feet and wallet. What's that mean? Stop attending
matches, don't buy merch, cease watching it on TV or via your streaming device
et al. Hit em where its hurts the most, just like Facebook customers / consumers
/ users have recently done, which has resulted in worldwide negative headlines
for Facebook, and see the share prices tank for offenders. You can also attend
pure sports matches.
hoping that surf sports such as surfing, bodyboarding, bodysurfing, surf skiing
and swimming don't get corrupted, and if they have been effected, that the dark
element soon gets eliminated.
maybe life time bans on sports cheats is the answer, and make it law that if a
sportsman or sportswoman gets busted for cheating that they automatically loose
their income from the sport... pay for showing up and payment from supporting
brands (the sponsors etc).
me a river for sports cheats, cheers for pro wrestlers and the promoters who don't
pretend to be doing sport for sports sake alone, and all sports media and sports
promoters and players agents, do your best to run a tight and clean ship. Professional
sports doesn't need another black eye or hit in the head.
on sport? Maybe leave that for pro wresting and poker. We would rather know a
sport is big time about entertainment or gambling, rather than be told its about
sports first, but then have the cheating man and his man in the shadows, in the
crowd, make us suspect otherwise.
sports lovers are family with the Olympic Games and Commonwealth Games. Got to

glory, not financial gain. Woops, is that a syringe in your pocket or boob tube,
or are you just happy to see us in the stands?
world, your on notice... clean up your act or loose the fans. You will soon all
be playing for your own amusements, because the media rights won't be worth much,
fans will stop going so their goes your ticket sales, and I guess your career
in sports won't be paying for mortgages or mansions for much longer. We're not
going to get into the circus that is professional cycling. Armstrong, got your
blood transfusion today?
game, set match. That's all there is, there isn't any more. The fans have gone
berserk (Jack Little - WCW reference). Now, that was sports entertainment, and

but its optional if you want to support our sponsors. That would be the sentiment

'The Rock' Johnson and his beautiful girlfriend Lauren Hashian. In recent
months Johnson has being opening up about his life's challenges including his
bout of depression and his mum's past suicide attempt. Dwayne's openness has helped
inspire others to overcome the odds, and to beat the tough times. Johnson continues
to inspire, motivate, entertainment and educate young and old. Well done on breaking
down previously taboo type subjects, and public thank you for stopping to chat
to us in Sydney all those years ago at the red carpet. A champion bloke in every
sense of the word. Seven Bucks Productions
will be hearing from the Media Man team again soon. If you didn't hear the true
story, circa 1995, Johnson was wrestling in flea markets for about $40 bucks a
night. And, you guessed it - he had $7 bucks in his pocket and was broke. He knew
that one day he wouldn't be. That's inspirational.
friend and associate Hulk Hogan (Terry
Bollea) has also publicly discussed and documented a time he contemplated suicide
when he was depressed. Bollea credits Laila Ali
(that's Muhammad Ali's daughter) for saving
and Bollea will go down in history as legends, tough guys, great performers, and
as having hearts as enormous as their muscles. Some say they have egos, but having
met and spoken with both gentlemen I would say its a confidence, and they came
across as humble, friendly and appreciative of support. We encourage others to
support these champions of sports, entertainment and life.
