Administrative Perspectives Of Stadium Alcohol Policy: Alcohol-Related Public Safety Measures In College Football Stadia, Brian E. Menaker, Beth H. Chaney, Richard Dale Sheptak Jr.

Journal of Sport Safety and Security

Excessive alcohol consumption remains an issue at spectator sporting events worldwide. Sound security policies are integral in dampening the impact that sporting events have on host communities, the stadium environment, and patrons of the events. This study explores the phenomenon of differing alcohol policy development and implementation at sports venues. Interviews were conducted on alcohol consumption policy enforcement and implementation at college football stadia to determine the emerging themes and resonating perceptions of facility and operations administrators at the seven National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) schools in the Southeastern United States. Many themes emerged ...


Evaluating Minor League Baseball Social Identity, Social Image, And Brand Equity., Christan David Hanna 2016 University of Louisville

Evaluating Minor League Baseball Social Identity, Social Image, And Brand Equity., Christan David Hanna

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

An understanding of brand equity, the value a brand adds to a product (Keller, 1993), can provide valuable information to sport managers. This is due to the fact price elasticity, competitive strength, and brand loyalty are consequences of brand equity (Keller, 2001). The degree to which fans identify with teams has been found to predict brand equity in major professional sport (Boyle & Magnusson, 2007) and major college sport (Watkins, 2014) contexts. One purpose of this study is to assess whether fan identification is predictive of brand equity in a MiLB context. Further, Lassar, Mittal, and Sharma (1995) found social image ...

Gendered Self-~Presentation On Social Media: A Content Analysis Of Tweets From Unlv Men's And Women's Athletic Teams, Alexandra Nicole White

UNLV Theses, Dissertations, Professional Papers, and Capstones

ABSTRACT

This thesis examines how sports teams vary by means of self-presentation on a social media

platform in relation to gender and sport. Building on Erving Goffman’s (1959) constructs of selfpresentation

and operationalizing impression management strategies, this study content analyzed

seven UNLV teams’ Tweets. The analysis spanned from August 2015 to October 2015. Every

Tweet posted, during these three months, from the seven different sporting teams was coded to

compare and contrast the men's teams accounts with the women’s teams accounts, as well as one

account that combines the men’s and women’s team on one ...

Factors Contributing To Consumer’S Buying Habits In The Online Ticketing Industry, Joe D'Agostino

Sport Management Undergraduate

Ticket scalping is a growing epidemic that has become more specialized in the online market. The online secondary ticket market thrives on consumer demand. It has been discovered that this demand in the online market is driven by factors such as trust, risk, time (availability), and popularity of the website. A cross sectional survey, using St. John Fisher students, faculty, and staff, uncovered what online secondary ticketing platform consumers use most, and why. Being able to understand what causes consumers to buy online is coveted by businesses’ and marketers. The results showed that consumers had more trust and less presumed ...


An Investigation Of Virtual Golf In The Republic Of Korea From A Marketing Perspective., Chulhwan Choi 2016 University of Louisville

An Investigation Of Virtual Golf In The Republic Of Korea From A Marketing Perspective., Chulhwan Choi

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Just as advances in technology have drastically changed daily life, the entire sport business industry has been altered by the latest technology (Lee, Cheon, Judge, Shin, & Kim, 2012). A virtual sport, called "screen golf", has offered a virtual reality via simulators and has seen enormous growth in the Republic of Korea (Kim, Seo, Kim, & Chang, 2014), not just as an alternative to the existing sport but as an entirely new type of sport entertainment (Han, Beak, Lee, & Huh, 2014). Knowing that there are significant gaps in consumer behaviors between existing sports and emerging sports (Ko, Park, & Claussen, 2008), investigating consumers' decision-making processes for participation in virtual golf is essential for the sport to be successful in this new market. As new trends of enjoying sports, like sport-related online games (Hur, Ko, &Valacich, 2007; Seo & Green, 2008) and video games (Kim, Walsh, & Ross, 2008), have emerged, and efforts to understand changing consumer behaviors have continued, it is necessary to explore virtual sports, which have had little attention so far, from diverse marketing perspectives. Hence, the primary purposes of this study were to (a) investigate differences in constraints between participation in actual golf and virtual golf, (b) compare constraints between experienced and non-experienced individuals in virtual golf, (c) examine ...

Through The Eyes Of Volunteers, Megan Ridings 2016 St. John Fisher College

Through The Eyes Of Volunteers, Megan Ridings

Sport Management Undergraduate

The motivation behind this paper is showing that the long-term survival of nonprofit organizations depends on the recruitment and retention of today’s young adults. Determining what motivates young adult’s verses what holds them back and how organizations can meet student’s interest seems to be still unknown. Looking within the St. John Fisher community through an emailed survey can help pinpoint some of those unanswered questions for nonprofits. With help of the data we can see SJFC student’s volunteer history, influence for volunteering and influences for not volunteering, which organizations they volunteered for and pinpoint why as ...


Fan Reaction On Twitter Following The Announcement Of Ahl Teams Relocating, Pat Sofia 2016 St. John Fisher College

Fan Reaction On Twitter Following The Announcement Of Ahl Teams Relocating, Pat Sofia

Sport Management Undergraduate

Franchise relocation has been occurring in professional sports for years. The Hartford Whalers experienced one in 1997. Almost 20 years later, the American Hockey League (AHL) experienced a historic franchise relocation process. However, little research has been done that included more recent research about fan identity, affiliation, and actions. This study is a content analysis of fan Twitter posts a week prior when the rumors start to spread that both the Manchester Monarchs and the Norfolk Admirals will be relocating to California for the 2015-2016 hockey season and the week following the official announcement. A total of 43 tweets were ...


Evolution Of Salary Discrimination In The Nba, Taylor D. Rayburn 2016 St. John Fisher College

Evolution Of Salary Discrimination In The Nba, Taylor D. Rayburn

Sport Management Undergraduate

Prior research has found that salary discrimination based upon a player’s race was present and eventually disappeared from the National Basketball Association (NBA). Recent research has produced similar findings regarding salary discrimination between foreign and U.S. players, which too has produced conflicting results. Foreign players have continued to enter the NBA over the past decades and the game has expanded as a global brand. This study examined salary discrimination between foreign and U.S players after the implementation of the 2011-2012 CBA using 39 foreign and 39 U.S. players. Multiple regression analyses were used to determine if ...


Burned Out: The Relationship Between Coaching Style And Burnout In Elite Athletes, Ethan S. Bledsoe 2016 St. John Fisher College

Burned Out: The Relationship Between Coaching Style And Burnout In Elite Athletes, Ethan S. Bledsoe

Sport Management Undergraduate

Sport specialization and sampling are two ways youth athletes can play sports. Athletes playing in college, at the Division III level, sample sports throughout their childhood instead of specializing in one sport. There is not a lot of specific research done for each Division in the NCAA. This study is a cross-sectional survey of students and athletes at SJFC, which is a small Division III school in Western New York. Using surveys, data was found that supports the research question that Division III athletes and students sampled sports throughout their childhoods rather than specializing. This question can help parents determine ...


The Impact Of Title Ix On Athletics Development In The United States, Jennifer Y. Mak 2016 Marshall University

The Impact Of Title Ix On Athletics Development In The United States, Jennifer Y. Mak

Jennifer Y Mak

Nothing has had as much of an impact in the history of public education as Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972. The increase in the popularity of collegiate sports, especially the revenue sports (football, basketball), has made Title IX and Athletics a hot topic. However, many members of the Title IX generations do not have a clear picture or fully understand the true meaning behind Title IX. This paper tries to close this gap by explaining the relationship between Title IX and Athletics in a timeline format: the birth of Title IX in 1972; Title IX and Athletics ...
