Factors Contributing To Consumer’S Buying Habits In The Online Ticketing Industry, Joe D'Agostino 2016 St. John Fisher College

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 ...


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 ...

Exploring Nirsa Championship Series Professional Development Opportunities: Understanding Their Perceived Value To The Association, Jacob K. Tingle, Dan Hazlett, April Flint

School of Business Faculty Research

The NIRSA Championship Series (Series) is a significant component of NIRSA: Leaders in Collegiate Recreation (NIRSA). Demonstrated, in part, by the fact that many campus recreational professionals contend the events directly relate to both their institution and the association’s mission. The purpose of this study was to gain an understanding of how NIRSA professionals perceive the value of volunteer experiences at Series events. The research team conducted semistructured interviews with thirteen campus recreation directors. The participants had a median of 28 years in the profession, (SD = 7.4), and represented all six NIRSA regions. In describing the benefits of ...


Determinants Of Nba Average Annual Attendance By Team, Kevin McGee 2016 University of Northern Iowa

Determinants Of Nba Average Annual Attendance By Team, Kevin Mcgee

Research in the Capitol

My project explores which characteristics of NBA teams are significant determinants of average attendance for the 1990-91 to 2014-15 seasons. By determining which variables are significant and the direction and magnitude of their impact on a team’s annual attendance, the results may be used to predict future NBA attendance figures, analyze how different teams can improve attendance and revenues, and determine whether other cities, such as Des Moines, are strong candidates for attracting new NBA teams. In the exploration of which characteristics are most important to determining NBA attendance, data has been collected and sorted by each team by ...

Intravascular Atp And The Regulation Of Blood Flow And Oxygen Delivery In Humans, Anne Crecelius, Brett Kirby, Frank Dinenno 2016 University of Dayton

Intravascular Atp And The Regulation Of Blood Flow And Oxygen Delivery In Humans, Anne Crecelius, Brett Kirby, Frank Dinenno

Anne R. Crecelius

Regulation of vascular tone is a complex response that integrates multiple signals which allow for blood flow and oxygen supply to appropriately match oxygen demand. Here, we discuss the potential role of intravascular ATP as a primary factor in these responses and propose that deficient ATP release may contribute to impairments in vascular control exhibited in aged and diseased populations.


Vascular Regulation Via Kir Channels And Na+ /K+-Atpase, Anne Crecelius, Frank Dinenno 2016 University of Dayton

Vascular Regulation Via Kir Channels And Na+ /K+-Atpase, Anne Crecelius, Frank Dinenno

Anne R. Crecelius

Despite the longstanding knowledge that blood flow increases in proportion to metabolic activity of skeletal muscle, the underlying mechanisms that govern this response have only recently been identified.1 Given the role of endothelial cells in mediating exercise hyperemia,2 interest has been focused on endothelium-derived vasodilation occurring via the synthesis of nitric oxide (NO) and vasodilating prostaglandins (PGs; i.e. prostacyclin) or endothelium- derived hyperpolarization. A number of studies performed in humans have established a minimal-to-modest role for NO and PGs during mild- and moderate- intensity exercise. In animal preparations, prevention of hyperpolarization attenuates contraction-induced hyperemia; however, performing similar ...


Player Performance And Team Revenues: Nba Player Salary Analysis, Tyler Stanek 2016 Claremont McKenna College

Player Performance And Team Revenues: Nba Player Salary Analysis, Tyler Stanek

CMC Senior Theses

The National Basketball Association (NBA) generated well over $4 billion in revenues during the 2014-15 season. I analyze the value of a win to a team in terms of revenue and examine the potential underpayment or overpayment of players and superstars throughout the league relative to their marginal revenue product (MRP). My findings suggest that players are overpaid, especially superstars. However, it is important to consider the fixed-revenue streams a team receives before assuming a player is simply overpaid compared to his MRP. In congruence with previous literature, I find that veterans are overpaid at the expense of younger players ...


Which Comes First? Academics Vs. Athletics: A Diii Perspective, Eric Z. Lorraine 2015 St. John Fisher College

Which Comes First? Academics Vs. Athletics: A Diii Perspective, Eric Z. Lorraine

Sport Management Undergraduate

The implementation of NCAA Bylaw 2.14 otherwise known as the “20 hour rule” in 1991 was supposed to have universities’ student-athletes to have more time to focus on their academic pursuits. However, recent studies have shown that this Bylaw has had no significant impact in studies that were conducted on Division I student-athletes. This study examined the time conflicts and obligations that are faced by student-athletes from a Division III perspective. Data for this study was collected through the use of a cross sectional survey with a sample of 137 student-athletes at a private Division III college. The results ...


Influential Factors In A Division Iii Student-Athlete’S College Decision, Matthew Taylor 2015 St. John Fisher College

Influential Factors In A Division Iii Student-Athlete’S College Decision, Matthew Taylor

Sport Management Undergraduate

The college athletics landscape is one that is vastly different across the three main divisions of the NCAA. Previous literature has examined a mixture of a number of different factors influencing the student-athletes college decision. This study has uncovered what are the most influential factors in a Division III student-athlete’s college decision. A cross-sectional survey consisting of a number of different types of questions including rank order questions, validation options, and open ended questions helped to gather the most accurate and appropriate data for this study. This survey was administered to all students on the St. John Fisher College ...


Moneyball To Moreyball: How Analytics Have Shaped The Nba Today, Joseph J. Catalfano 2015 St. John Fisher College

Moneyball To Moreyball: How Analytics Have Shaped The Nba Today, Joseph J. Catalfano

Sport Management Undergraduate

Moreyball is the concept of emphasizing three pointers and points in the paint over mid-range shots on offense, while forcing mid-range shots on defense. Understanding this concept is crucial not just for front office personnel, but the players and the coaches of the NBA. This research explored whether or not Moreyball accurately predicts success in the NBA. The methodology used multiple regressions between specific NBA statistics and the Win/Loss record of NBA teams. The results of this research showed that on its own, the main statistics of Moreyball were significant in predicting team success in the NBA. However when ...
