    • Tom,
      I think this is an interesting topic. I’ve played and watched sports my whole life and wondered a lot about careers in sports. I think that like any job, your network that you build is a huge part of finding jobs and being hired. For high-level athletes, the networks they build are crucial for their present athletic career as well as future job prospects. Many people also see those who play sports in college and professionally as more qualified because they have more experience with the game and coaching/managing styles that they can bring to the table if pursuing a career in athletics. I found this article for you about professional athletes’ careers after sports: https://theconversation.com/game-over-how-professional-athletes-can-have-a-career-after-sport-71555

    Tom commented on the post, Brand Addiction

    This is a great topic and how people chase after brands is great to research and I can’t wait to see what you find out about people and their brand addiction.

  • This is a great topic and I have wonder if the game has changed too much and if it has gotten a little softer. The research behind the analytics of basketball is a great topic and I can’t wait to see what els you find out about this.

    • Tom, really interesting topic. I, myself, have wondered how one becomes a general manager because that has always been a dream job for me. I would be very interested to read your final research paper to find out how I can get into player scouting and team managing. Your paper might really give me an edge into getting in to that field one day, and if it does, I would be eternally grateful.

    • Tom, really cool topic and I think that it is something that can be applied to much of the world of high respect – high class positions. With many of the Presidents, CEO’s and corporate leaders of the world today, many fall into these positions in a very random manner. Some (like the NFL or other national sports agencies) work their way through the corporate ladder, but many fall into these positions with no prior affiliation to the organization. I think this is a really cool project and I am excited to see the results and the end product of your research.
