The NFL’s $100 Billion Media Rights Deal

Conrad Wiacek, Head of Sport Analysis at GloblaData, a leading data and analytics company, offers his view on the state of the media rights market: “COVID-19 has hit all aspects of the economy, including broadcasters, but news of the NFL signing a new 11-year US$100bn rights package in the US highlights the fact that sports rights may be COVID-proof. “With audiences dropping year-on-year, the expectation was that the NFL may struggle to match its previous rights fee whereas in fact the NFL has doubled its previous rights agreement.

Community College Partnerships Key to Four-year Institutional Success

“I don’t understand, for the life of me, why more four-year institutions are not partnering with community colleges,” said Rowan University President Ali A.

Three separate institutions—and the singular decision to share Rowan’s name—break down the barriers between the traditional four-year institution and the county or community college. By working...

Deadspin: On the anniversary of sports shutting down due to COVID-19,

what have we learned about sports, the virus, and ourselves? It’s been a year since NBA player Rudy Gobert smeared his hands on reporters’ microphones at a press conference and then tested positive for the coronavirus. A year of lockdowns and masking and handwashing and flouting mask-wearing protocols. A year of sports cancellations and postponements — Wimbledon, the Olympics, the NCAA basketball tournaments, the start of the baseball season — due to a new virus that raged unchecked through the U.S. In many ways, American athletes have been the guinea pigs when it comes to this pandemic. Remember when then-President Donald Trump was comparing this to a flu (we found out later he knew it was much, much worse), as though that should justify a... Read more →

MURPHY: NURSING HOMES SHOULD PAY PRICE FOR COVID On CBS, Gov. Phil Murphy spoke about concerns over his administration's work to slow or stop the spread of COVID-19 in nursing homes. Some blame sits with the facilities who failed to follow the health department's "explicit, black-and-white" instructions, Murphy said. While it's true that the state's policy asked long-term care facilities to not turn away COVID-positive residents, Murphy said the state told the facilities the residents must live in "their own wing, their own building" — and if that wasn't possible, operators were told to "come to us and we'll find another alternative." Still, some facilities "did not take our advice," Murphy said, and "they deserve to pay a price for that." (Patch / CBS News)... Read more →

Branch Rickey, World War 1 Army Officer, General Manager of Brooklyn Dodgers

Branch Rickey image courtesy of Baseball Hall of Fame Branch Rickey was an Army officer in the Chemical Warfare Service during World War I. In his unit, coincidentally, were future baseball greats Ty Cobb and Christy Mathewson. Rickey would also take a place in baseball history, thanks to his decision to do the right thing. In October 1945, as general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers, Rickey signed infielder Jackie Robinson, an African American, for the Dodgers' minor league organization. Robinson's later success with the Dodgers from 1947 to 1956 led other owners to seek Black talent. This was before the U.S. military integrated, which happened July 26, 1948, after President Harry S. Truman signed an executive order establishing the President's Committee on Equality of Treatment... Read more →
