Economic woes for the sports business in Baltimore

The Baltimore Sun had a front page article this morning devoted to the impact of the general economic decline on the fortunes of the Orioles and the Ravens. There is also a bit of discussion about the prospects for the proposed downtown arena project. Here’s one tidbit from the article: “It’s kind of like booze and movies,” said John Moag, founder of Moag & Co., a Baltimore-based investment banking firm that specializes in sports. “Psychologically, people do not want to give it up.” A recent study by Moag’s firm found attendance and franchise values went up during the bear markets

When Will the Pirates Gain Respect in Pittsburgh?

Pittsburgh is likely the best small sports town in the country, which is often overlooked by a broad range of sports fans within the US. How is it possible that this small city with a population of just 300,000 managed to receive three major sports franchises? Pittsburgh is incredibly fortunate, especially when you consider the success that some of these teams have had over the years. However, it is worth noting that one team is the black sheep of the family. While the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pittsburgh Penguins are regarded as two of the best sports franchises of all time,

The Heartbeat of a Nation and How Hockey Helped Shape It

Canada founded in 1867 and is now into its 151st year and a nation. Jump forward only 50 years from that point and it’s now 1917 and the National Hockey League forms, now in its 100th year. A 50-year gap, a dot on the timeline of civilization, in which Canada and its provinces grew, developed and seemingly form an incredible passion for the sport. This has always and forever will be a long shared heartbeat. The big question on every sports fan’s mind is whether we can have the NHL running at the same time as the coronavirus. You should

Live Streaming and Sports Betting - A Marriage Made in Heaven?

There’s no doubt that sports betting is one of the fastest growing markets in the world, particularly as the American sector continues to open up and the practice is legalised across a larger number of US states. Sports betting also continues to benefit from technological advancement and mobile wagering, as this has helped to create a swathe of so-called “in-play” markets and enabled operators to target a new demographic of potential customers. Gambling brands have sought to capitalise on this further by live streaming specific events and broadcasts, enabling players to wager as they watch the action unfolds. You can

Blue Jays Player Payroll Budget Increased

The Toronto Blue Jays indicated today that they believe they have not been hiring enough units of playing ability in the marketplace over the past few years, an argument that G.M. J.P. Ricciardi had been making, sometimes none-too-subtly, for at least two years. They have announced that the budget for player salaries will be $210 million over three years. My contacts with the club tell me they do not expect to divide it equally over the three years, but will probably spend less this year and more in the next two years. “We have the resources now to go out

The Value of Recruiting

Echoing Skip’s post below, I link to this article about Kansas State assistant basketball coach Dalonte Hill, about whose salary a recent stink was raised: Michael Beasley made Kansas State basketball relevant for the first time in more than a decade last season, and his presence put a few extra dollars in the pocket of the man responsible for luring him to Manhattan, Kan. Kansas State had been a perennial also-ran in the Big 12 during the 90’s and the early part of this decade. It was in large part due to Michael Beasley – with all due respect to

The NHL -- One More Kick at the Can?

The owners made an offer to the NHLPA today (Wednesday) that included profit-sharing and pretty near forensic accounting to guarantee the profit-sharing. The union has rejected the offer. “The League today presented a written proposal with minor variations of concepts that were presented orally by the NHL last Thursday”, Saskin said in a statement released after the meeting. “We told the League last week and again today that their multi-layered salary cap proposals were not the basis for an agreement.” The union asked that they meet again tomorrow (Thursday). Update: The owners have agreed to meet with the players tomorrow

College Football Doping Scandal

College football is a big business these days.  Teams generate tens of millions of dollars of revenue every season, and for top players, a lucrative professional football contract worth millions of dollars usually awaits the end of their eligibility.  Given all the money associated with modern college football, players, coaches, and boosters face huge incentives to bend or break the rules.  Today officials handed down one of the harshest and most rarely used penalties available in sport to a football program: the “death penalty.”  Suspension of the program for one year. The truly bizarre element of this story is that

Seattle Supersonics Trial - Do economists' opinions vary?

I apologize for the length of this post at the outset. Given the interpretations and spins put on the testimony of Andy Zimbalist and Brad Humphreys regarding the economic impact of the Supersonics by the lawyers and the press, I feel it necessary to be clear on a few issues. From comment #141037 we get this: “Overall, I’m thinking the economist’s testimony is gonna get tossed out the window since they all contradict one another.” Here is Paul Lawrence, lead attorney for the city of Seattle responding to a question about the case in the Seattle Times being a battle
