If the person or organization is connected to the stadium in a political, business, or financial manner, there should be no offer of attendance unless their presence will be official in nature. It should be the stadium’s responsibility to check for conflicts of interest before sending out offers of free admittance, and encouraging attendees to falsely claim their presence as official business. Reserving sections of the stadium for compensated ticketing is a valid business related decision, but the practice should be shielded from the scrutiny of public watchdog groups by removing compensation altogether for any public official. The only offers for free admission should be to those that are taking part in the festivities in some way such as; throwing out the first pitch, making a speech, singing or performing, or contest winners. The ethical implications could have been anticipated if the proper attention was given to deciding what was right.
Professional baseball players convicted of using performance-enhancing drugs should not be considered for induction into the Hall of Fame. I strangely agree that professional baseball players should be tested every now and then before they can be induction into the Hall of Fame. People that think I am wrong do not see that it is hurting the other players around them that are not using the performance-enhancing drugs. If playing unfair is the game than no one is winning. Players that are using are cheating themselves and teammates.
In fact, Fehr and the Players Union are also opposed to testing for illegal drugs as they feel that it violates the privacy of the athletes (Leshanski 2). If the union refuses to change its stance and become more receptive to drug testing it is possible that Congress will decide to institute drug testing legislation which undoubtedly would result in years of court battles. As it stands right now Major League Baseball is the only one of the major sports that does not have mandatory drug testing – they even do drug testing in the minor leagues! It is because the minor league players are not eligible for membership in the MLBPA at this point in their careers they cannot be “protected” or shielded by a union that doesn’t give a damn about its members’ health (Verducci 8). In addition to not having a mandatory drug testing policy, presently baseball is the only major sport that does not test for recreational drugs (Verducci 4).
There was no signal in dispute this time. Home plate umpire Tim Welke simply didn't see the ball hit Gonzalez and ruled the ball fair. However, upon seeing a replay after the ballgame, Welke told reporters that the ball did indeed hit Gonzalez. He didn't go so far as to say the play should have been called foul since he, nor any of his fellow umpires, saw the ball hit Gonzalez. But whether he admits it or not, Welke essentially said he made the wrong
However, studies have shown that the majority of the public are against the use of steroids in professional sports. The main reason being, that it ruins the integrity of the game and the high standards of sportsmanship and character that come along with being a professional athlete. Barry Bonds and all who have violated the rules and cheated to get to the top, should pay the ramifications and not be allowed into the Hall of Fame, the game’s greatest
It comes with great retort and speculation around the pollution and the rights of the drilling pad. There are a lot of legal issues that are wrapped up in the process of hydraulic fracturing. There are many loop holes they are able to jump through and not have to disclose any of their information and what they use. According to [ (Chivers, 2013) ], The ‘Halliburton loophole’ allowed companies to push ahead without the need for extra permits or public consultation. In the US, fracking is also exempted from six other key pieces of regulation relating to hazardous waste and pollution.
Laws passed in Connecticut shortly after the fire made it illegal for big tops to be used Circuses were required to have a fire department on standby for all performances, with hose lines charged A dedicated fire watch was required during performances Aisles had to be maintained free of seating The big top was now required to have a flame-retardant treatment Many of the big tops relocated from tents to arenas which provided air conditioning and improved lighting Any tents still in use today, have to abide by NFPA 102: Standard for Grandstands, Folding and Telescopic Seating, Tents, and Membrane Structures New minimum fire safety guidelines have been created for circuses, fairs, carnivals. exhibitions, contests, gospel meetings, auctions or other public assemblage which include issues as the minimum number of exits, exit and aisle passages, fastening of seats, flame-proofing materials, combustibility of wood and wires, amount and location of fire-fighting equipment, training of personnel, use of ventilators to draw off heat and gases in the event of a fire, and emergency lighting systems to ensure against panic during power
The players’ unethical practices of gambling, drinking, brawling, and loitering lead to admonishment and fines. Some leagues went to the extreme and blacklisted such players to keep them from playing for another club. (Rader, 2009, pg. 60) Baseball’s transition from a childhood pass time to a professional major league sport leaves us in admiration and with a sense of respect towards the sport. It built up from nothing, including no rules or regulations, to a business enterprise in every powerhouse city in the nation.
Although the government views them differently, they should not. In the United States of America we are a country of freedom and unity, and if the Native Americans do not have to pay taxes, it does not help our country economically. We have to pay taxes and so should they. Native American reservations should not only be taxed for their land, but should also be aware of the lack of police enforcement while on duty and focus on the increase of incidents that occur due to the alcohol and gambling that goes on in and around their casinos. Native Americans that currently live in the state of Arizona and own their own land should be taxed for it.
It is thought that baseball’s numbers are more important than other sports, and therefore it is important how the players obtain the records and numbers (Brennan). The biggest debate now though, is whether or not Major League Baseball should be prohibiting the use of these drugs. As a private league, MLB has every right to ban anything they want, but the fact of the matter is that congress is cracking down and pressuring the league to “impose uniform drug-testing and punishment standards” (Guénette). Statewide prohibition of these drugs outside of private leagues makes using steroids and HGH a social problem instead of a personal one. Bodybuilders,
