Transcript of Violence in Sports Performance Task

By: Melissa Simone and Sabrina Teles 1) Has violence ever taken away from the true value of the sports you played?

2)How many of you have participated in violence in a sport?

3) How many of you prefer to view violence in professional sports? Violence in Sports Impact on viewers
-violence brings in money to professional sports team
-adds more intense to the game
-popularity of a sport increases popularity from media
-negative impact on viewers (children and adults)
-children can be influenced to model the same behavior Sport Violence Definition:
Violence - refers to excessive physical force, which causes or has obvious potential to cause harm or destruction.

-In society, fans look forward to this aspect, but it is truly barbaric Fan Violence http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=sm4NHgQnvUw Injuries from Violence Fan Violence: Football Hooliganism -global issue caused by rivalry between teams
-can range from shouts, spitting and small-scale fistfights to huge riots where firms attack each other with deadly weapons -when a crowd gets too involved in the game, that they lash out and bring violent actions in the stands with other fans who are against them. Fan Violence http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4X0hCjHEfOE 1) Does fan violence discourage you from attending a sports game?

2)Do you think violence should be prohibited in professional and minor leagues? Discussion Questions Blocking in American football, regular tackles in rugby, and body checks in ice hockey, can be harmful violent actions yet can also be within the rules of the games NFL rule changes for 2013: Players will be penalized for leading with the crown-of-the-helmet into defenders when outside of the tackle box. http://wgno.com/2013/03/20/local-sports-fan-react-to-nfl-rule-changes/#axzz2TTU8C0o6 Types of Aggression 1) Hostile Aggression The physical intent to harm another team member using contact or hitting. ex. in soccer intentionally headbutting a player on the field The human body responds to danger in two ways; fleeing or fighting.
Which brings out adrenaline and provides us with a sense of satisfaction.
Fear, danger and violence provides us with a natural high that makes us feel powerful and excited. 1) The Sensational High 3) Modeling

In the learning theory created by Albert Bandura......
Children will model acts they are exposed to in media
ex. if a young girl is watching her violent older brothers rugby game, the next day at school she might think hitting her friend at school the next day is acceptable because she saw an older sibling do it 2) Release Serves as a release of aggression and/or stress.ex. by watching two hockey players fights, fans are able to release any inner aggression. 3) Passionate Commitment it is appealing for the audience to see their favorite players take risks for their sport Impact of Violence in Sports 1) Children
Children in their crucial years of development are easily influenced by mature individuals
their immature minds, and defenseless attitude plays a huge impact in mimicking violence in sports in the future Case 2009: Daniel Quirk died from a head injury during a
wrestling match. Conclusion -Violence in sports is a controversial issue.
-Sports organizations such as NFL and NHL are constantly allowing rules to bend, encouraging violence and glorifying it to appeal to audience members.
-Fan violence has escalated into a global safety issue
-It is highly unlikely that sport violence will be banned, as violence has become a vital part of our culture. Not just in the sport world, but the media world as a whole.
-Demand for violence = more sales for teams CONS PROS Introduction Questions....... 2) Instrumental Aggression -has intent to harm someone, but with the purpose of a goal or retaliation Causes -Intermittent explosive disorder: is one of the main causes of violence.
-In some cases, athletes are predisposed to naturally be prone to violence. Violence in Sports is INCREASING...

-Violence for athletes has become habitual, in some cases, athletes are not aware of the serious effects and life threatening injuries that can arise
-3 in 5 athletes have been involved in a violent act in a sporting event. 1. List your experience with sports
Former NHL hockey player.

2.What is your perspective on violence in sports?
I think it’s important to differentiate between violence and physical presence. Violence is defined as aggression that is taken outside of the rules of the sport with an intent to hurt or harm someone. Physical presence is what makes sport fun and competitive.

3.Do you think violence in sports has been taken to an inappropriate level?
Based on my definition above, I believe sports in general are appropriate. Looking at the most physical sports of hockey and football, both have continually adjusted their rules to protect the athletes without losing the physical nature of the game.

4.Do you think violence in professional sports has a influence in amateur sports?
Professional sports have influence in amateur sports no matter the issue, violence included. Amateur athletes strive and dream that they can one day become a professional athlete and willingly mimic many of the attributes of their favourite athlete.

5.Do you think violence brings a more competitive feel to the game?
No. Violence as defined above brings nothing to the game. The physical presence of a sport is what makes it competitive. INTERVIEW
