Book Review: '15 Sports Myths and Why They're Wrong' by Rodney Fort and Jason Winfree

No seriously, do it. And if you want to know where our privacy policy is before you submit your comments below, it's right here. I truly enjoyed reading this article. As a current student in Sport and Event Marketing so many of your points relate to my current journey in this field. This is something that you do not hear to often and really stood out to me.

I also have my Bachelors in Sports Management so I found it quite funny how some people think it is a career suicide but I feel it gave me a broad outlook on the different sectors of sports where I could possibly see myself working. With any degree, entry-level positions in sports will more than likely be in sales so learning specific sale skills and hands on experience will do more for you than any classroom. Nothing could be more true with regards to how so many jobs have been created in the past 5 years and that new positions keep popping up.

It is defiantly a business that is evolving and I am excited at the chance to join it. Like you said just listen to your heart and follow your passion, which is something, I most certainly will do. This is a very insightful article.

I am currently a college student pursuing a bachelors degree in Business Management. I myself have fallen into a few of these myths.

I now understand that my major and GPA are not as big of a factor as experience is. This is a rather high percentage compared to my previous knowledge.

But, I definitely agree with the fact that companies look for internal candidates before bringing in outside candidates. It does seem like inside sales or ticket sales is one of the most common ways to get into a sports organization. Do you think other sales jobs non-sports related would offer some of the same beneficial experience? Yes Troy I do — while I never worked in sales I have a broadcast journalism background from all the people I have talked to and interviewed, sales skills are in demand!

Brian Clapp says:. Yes, traffic jams have worsened in some cities where bike lanes have been built, but studies show this is largely down to other factors, for example the growth in the number of Uber-type private hire vehicles and Amazon delivery vans. Most compelling of all, of course, is the fact that motor vehicles cause the congestion in the first place, and the only real way to reduce traffic congestion is to have fewer of them on the roads.

Around the world, in just about every city where proper cycle routes have been built, many more riders start using them. One classic example is Seville in southern Spain, where the recent construction of 50 miles of bike lanes led to an fold increase in rider numbers. But yes, poorer people and those from minority ethnic backgrounds do ride bikes. The other thing to stress is that the more obviously safe the cycling in your town or city, the more diverse and mixed the people on bikes.

Without proper infrastructure, cycling becomes something of a specialist pursuit, mainly restricted to what you might call the hobbyists — people with the more expensive bike, the greater confidence and the willingness to mix it with motor traffic. A series of barely connected bike lanes, such as in London, might be fine for commuters but people who make more varied journeys — for example those disproportionately women who need to go to work via a school and back via a shop — require a coherent network, including the other half of the safe-cycling equation, tamed backstreets, where cars are reduced in number and travel at slow speeds.

Some of the noisiest opponents of recent London bike lanes have been individual business owners, who argue that a separated bike lane and any loss of parking will be fatal to their enterprise. In broad terms, however, this is completely wrong.

Towns, cities and individual high streets are changing in how they compete. The growth of internet shopping means they must appeal more as destinations, which is hard to do amid wall-to-wall traffic. Studies have shown that shop owners tend to overestimate the proportion of customers who arrive by car, and that consumers on bikes often purchase more in the long term.

Perhaps the most comprehensive study of the real-world impact of cycle lanes, undertaken in New York City , found businesses on streets with separated bike routes grew on average more quickly than those without. In contrast, I know of no evidence that points the other way. A surprisingly common charge — surprising in that it has absolutely no basis in logic, let alone reality.

On average each year in the UK between zero and two pedestrians die after being hit by bikes. About a year die after being hit by motor vehicles, including more than 60 struck while on the pavement. As cannot be repeated enough, this is not about cyclists being somehow morally pure.

People break road laws, on all forms of road transport, and if anything they do so more often on average in motor vehicles. Millions of drivers admit to using phones at the wheel. As ever, this is all about the physics. The most tempting response to this is a deep sigh: no one to my knowledge has suggested that if you build safe cycling routes, that will be the only form of transport on offer, let alone compulsory.
