To understand how law pervades sports, you must view sports from a new perspective.  When was the last time you attended a baseball game?  Did you sit behind the fence behind home plate, or did you sit near first or third base behind your team’s dugout to support your team and get into the game (without fencing blocking your view)?  Did you ever consider that the better view of the game might lead to the loss of one of your eyes?  If you worked for the home team, and someone lost their eye as a result of the game, what would you do, especially if you found out that your fence could have prevented the loss if your 4 foot fence were merely 2 feet higher?  The situation occurs more frequently than you may expect:
 Now that you have witnessed the consequences, will you second-guess your seat choice, or will you at least choose to watch each at bat rather than texting during play?  If you worked for the home team, would you have known to call attention to the fence’s height may expose the team to unnecessary liability?  If you did not know, baseball field fence dimensions have been heavily litigated in the past, but different jurisdictions possess different regulations surrounding what is high and wide “enough” protection.  Failing to meet these standards may open your organization up to serious liability.For this assignment, you must get out from behind your computers, and either witness a game you love (e.g., football, baseball, soccer) or experience a new game (e.g., polo, cricket, rugby).  Whether you select little league, high school, college, or professional levels (I doubt Olympic would be realistic), you need to attend a real game/match/round/etc. to not only experience the joy of being a spectator, but to observe the sport through a new pair of lenses–legal glasses.  Yes, I mean a real, competitive game.  No, your television programming of a real game (recorded or live) does not qualify.  For example, watching a surf competition with significant swells does not compare to watching a bunch of inexperienced people try to remain standing on a longboard in tiny ocean ripples.
View the attachment, Brief Real-World Game Assessment Example, which provides a quick example of what you could see at an athletic event while watching the game from your seat.  While you attend the event, think about some of the legal ramifications that may influence those involved with the game directly (e.g., the athletes) and indirectly (e.g., spectators, like you).  You will then discuss the following topic areas in a properly written (including correlating research when needed), APA-style paper, which must be a minimum of 7-pages (not including your title or references page) and incorporate at least 4 references in addition to your textbook (and references answering specific legal issues will count toward the 4 references, but not pure law, such as a Constitutional provision or individual statute/rule, which may also be expected):
Discuss whether contracts may be involved in the event?  Are there employment contracts?  What about facility use contracts?  Did you need to sign a waiver, or what type of waivers did the athletes sign?  [Feel free to ask questions where possible.]
What type of employment might the employees have?  For instance, is the State where you viewed the event an at-will state?  Also, what are some potential tort issues that may arise from the hiring process?  [Use outside research for this information based on where the event occurred.  Do not ask someone inappropriate questions, such as asking whether they fraudulently misrepresented their resume.]
What organizations are involved in the event?  Do you have a parent company that hires workers to facilitate the event?  What about outside contractors?  What type of liability may arise in each situation?  Who all may be liable?
Touching briefly, assess whether there appear to be any discrepancies in the program, particularly regarding employment, protected classes, and possible claims that may be raised (e.g., violating the ADA, race- or sex-discrimination, etc.). Also, do you see religion reflected during the event?  If so, what, and how might this raise legal concerns?
What employment pay structure may be involved?  How might the FLSA be implicated?  Identify various individuals to determine who would and who would not receive workers’ compensation.
What labor laws have you learn about that may be implicated during the event?  How would you go about determining what you need to know as a sport manager handling the event?  Are unions represented?
Do you see any athlete agents?  You may not recognize them (or they are likely not there), but what might be their involvement in the event?  Are there any other types of agency involved?  
What participant liability may arise from the event?  If you are outdoors, how could you minimize Acts of God, or damages from various types of injuries?  What defenses might be implicated with the event?  Are there legal protections that may protect the event operators from spectator liability?  What about player injury?  Do you notice any individuals who seem to control the situation when an injury occurs, or might be trying to limit possible injury?
Did you witness any violence during the event?  What about reckless misconduct?  What civil liability may arise from this violence?
Finally, look around.  From what you have learned, what have you noticed about the premises and facilities that may cause you to worry about tort liability for the event organizers?  If someone is injured on the premises, who may be to blame or held responsible?  What defenses might the premises owners raise?  Is alcohol consumed during the event, and what ramifications might this cause?  What are some other event issues that may arise?
Once completed, select the “Week 6 Assignment: Third Quarter Learning Activity” link above these instructions, and upload your Word document.  Other documents forms, such as PDF, will not be accepted.  This assignment accounts for ten (10) percent of your final grade.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
