Doping Control, Mandatory Arbitration, And Process Dangers For Accused Athletes In International Sports , Maureen A. Weston Jun 2012

Doping Control, Mandatory Arbitration, And Process Dangers For Accused Athletes In International Sports , Maureen A. Weston

Maureen A Weston

Athletes in a professional sports league in the United States are members of players unions, which assist their athletes in obtaining representation when they are involved in dispute resolution proceedings associated with disciplinary actions. However, individual athletes who participate in international competitions do not enjoy the same benefits. When these athletes are required to submit to mandatory drug testing, with attendant potential criminal liability, and to mandatory arbitration, they should be provided meaningful access to competent legal representation when their athletic careers are in jeopardy. This article considers the legal framework, process, and recourse for athletes in international competition to …


Call In The Feds: Title Vi As A Diversifying Force In The Collegiate Head Football Coaching Ranks, N. Jeremi Duru Apr 2012

Call In The Feds: Title Vi As A Diversifying Force In The Collegiate Head Football Coaching Ranks, N. Jeremi Duru

N. Jeremi Duru

Over the course of the past decade, the racial complexion of the National Football League's ("NFL's") head coaching ranks has dramatically changed. For the bulk of the NFL's existence, it was virtually impossible for an African American to land a head coaching position. Whether as a result of "old boy" networking or stereotypical suppositions that African Americans lacked the intellectual capacity required to lead, manage, and teach a team of professional football players, African Americans toiled in assistant coaching positions for their entire careers with virtually no hope of ascending to the top spot.' Beginning in December of 2002, however, …


A People's History Of Baseball, Mitchell J. Nathanson Feb 2012

A People's History Of Baseball, Mitchell J. Nathanson

Mitchell J Nathanson

Baseball is much more than the national pastime. It has become an emblem of America itself. From its initial popularity in the mid-nineteenth century, the game has reflected national values and beliefs and promoted what it means to be an American. Stories abound that illustrate baseball's significance in eradicating racial barriers, bringing neighborhoods together, building civic pride, and creating on the field of play an instructive civics lesson for immigrants on the national character. In A People's History of Baseball, Mitchell Nathanson probes the less well-known but no less meaningful other side of baseball: episodes not involving equality, patriotism, heroism, …

Political Considerations In The Sports Establishment, Marios Papaloukas Jan 2012

Political Considerations In The Sports Establishment, Marios Papaloukas

Marios Papaloukas

There is a sui generis situation that needs to be further examined. Independent countries are not recognised as countries by Sports authorities while non-independent entities are. The sports establishment and the Olympic Movement are supposed to be politically independent. In the IOC’s view, its members do not represent their countries but rather the Olympic Movement within their countries. This is how their political independence from their respective governments is explained. One question remains unanswered though. Is it political considerations or a complete disregard for them, that has led sports authorities to take these decisions? The situation is further complicated since …

Online Sport Betting Developments And Athletic Activity Funding, Marios Papaloukas

Marios Papaloukas

On the 24th of March 2011 the European Commission issued the so called Green Paper on online gambling in the Internal Market. The European Commission’s purpose is to tackle the problems resulting from the rapid development of on-line gambling in the EU. As long as sport betting services providers were operating at a national level, member states could easily regulate the matter providing also funding of athletic activities. This was done by implementing either a system of licensed operators or a strictly controlled monopoly (state owned or otherwise). These two regulatory models co-existed within the internal market, up until the …


Sports Betting Monopolies Reaching A Critical Point, Marios Papaloukas Jan 2012

Sports Betting Monopolies Reaching A Critical Point, Marios Papaloukas

Marios Papaloukas

Every Member State in Europe has a wide discretionary power to choose which specific restrictive measures will be taken to achieve the purpose of containing the consumer’s natural propensity to gambling and suppress the incitement to squander money on gambling. To this date Member States have not selected the same degree of protection nor the same measures. The selected measures range from introducing a licensing system for gambling service providers to even imposing private monopolies. ECJ’s decision in the famous Markus Stoss case answered what was supposed to be the last of many questions on betting monopolies and oligopolies. However …
