Bob Kraft, the Patriots’ owner and an avowed Goodell supporter, has at times appeared to be incensed by the league’s actions. Other times he has hung with Goodell on a quiet sofa, then hugged him. The Patriots released a 20,000-word rebuttal of the NFL report indicting them, but aren’t bothering to fight the penalties handed down. You can just smell the scotch and cologne and money and back-room dealing. Much like Goodell’s reaction to the league’s domestic violence problem, the way “Deflategate” has unfolded feels more like a public relations campaign than it does the urgent business of the country’s most popular league being dealt with fairly and openly.
The NFL formed a committee of its own doctors that Determined that these findings were not true and they said that there is no long-term repcussions existing after experiencing a concussion while playing football. There are numerous Neurosurgeon articles to support the flaws in the studies done by
As Ernie and his teammates had walked on the field the viewers of the game had begun to throw their pop-corn at them because the coach had allowed black athletes to join the team. The discrimination on that field was so strong that even the referees had denied many of the touchdowns that Ernie had attempted and achieved. The coaches were forced into subbing in Ernie and replacing him with a white player just so that the referees would accept the goal. In conclusion the discrimination Ernie Davis was forced to experience was quite cruel and inhumane. Everywhere he went he was attacked both mentally and
Pathos is the emotional appeal of an article. George Will uses a depressing vocabulary. Will uses words such as “subconcussive, depression, chronic traumatic, and deceased” for just a few examples. Will also shows a feeling of guilt when he talks about how the rules could be changed to help minimize head injuries but only if the fans were dead. George Will also throws in a hint of fear, “But only in football is long-term injury the result not of accidents but of the game played properly, meaning within the rules.” With all of these different appeals that George Will could use, he decided to use the pathos method to catch the reader’s attention long enough to get his point across.
Sadly, this is not the case as stated by Vaughn. Companies are advertising “anti-concussion” equipment, but statistics show that most likely they do not work. As a young, retired NFL player stated "If a helmet could guarantee protection from concussions, I would still be playing football”(Threet1). Vaughn stated that “although some products may reduce the severity of a concussion there are no standardized ways to measure the credence of any sport equipment company's marketing claims”(1). Furthermore, the author is stating that most companies statistics are proven false, and cannot be trusted.
These health threatening side effects range from skin rashes to cancer, and also effect there kin with birth defects. While the majority of Vietnam veterans connected to Agent Orange complained about skin rashes, few complained of cancer because they weren’t aware of having it and neither did professionals. Medical personnel and officials didn’t know enough about the connections in between the two and refused to believe anything else but what they wanted to. Such was the case with Veterans Association employee Maude DeVictor when she started interviewing veterans when they called about previous complaints such as birth defects or miscarriages. DeVictor’s supervisor “demanded she stop gathering statistics (80)”, she refused and instead she contacted her local news station and ultimately made the world aware of the growing epidemic that was directly connected to the spraying of Agent Orange during the Vietnam
Equally empty are the so-called reports that suggest the Saints led the league in "violent penalties." Late hits and roughing-the-quarterback penalties, I always thought, are the signs of a bad defense, not one with its mind on perpetrating felonies. Who dat say otherwise, Saints fans are wondering in their resident vernacular? Lots of 49ers-based media and fans, for sure. Football crazies in this area, too, are calling for Saints owner Tom Benson to fire Payton immediately.
Stated within the article “Painkillers: A big, and unregulated, part of college football”, doctors and trainers say the drug does does not cause players to risk further injury because it doesn’t completely deaden the pain. The players can still feel it, just not as much (http://www.postandcourier.com/news/2009/oct/04/painkillersa-big-and-unregulated-part-of-college/). From the articles I’ve research there are a lot of pro’s and con’s to the injection shot, and there are some players, teams, and organizations that are for and against the injection
Per Celebrity Circuit the Celebrities are being paid to “praise products” on Twitter to their hundreds sometimes millions of followers. What easier way to earn money? That is if you are famous and have a lot of paparazzi, or “followers” shall I say. With this being said, wouldn’t this also help keep twitter alive? Carr shared a
The media has played a big role in developing Street Art since the 1980’s. We are now living in a society where technology and the media, influence us greatly, with social media sites such as twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr being popular amongst the younger generation and having widespread access to street art, street art has developed into a popular culture.

Now that the media has developed dramatically over the years it’s also helped to develop street art in a positive way.
