Soccer is a popular game worldwide. For many reasons i believe soccer is the appropriate game if CSC decided to add one more sport. There are many reasons that can support my answer, the reasons are as follow.

 

1- Popularity

Soccer is the most popular sport in the world in terms of player numbers. According to the 2006 FIFA Big Count, there were 265 million soccer players in the world, 270 million when referees and match officials were included.

2-Inexpensive

Soccer players don’t need to spend large amounts of money on equipment. The two most costly items are soccer cleats and a ball, and neither need be overly expensive. A jersey, shorts and shin guards are the only other requirements. Football players must buy a large number of protective items for competitive play.

3-Easy to Learn

It doesn’t take long to learn the basics of soccer. The rules are straightforward and easily defined, with only a few regulations — such as the offside rule, leaving much room for confusion. Football is a more complex sport in terms of set plays and regulations.

4-Physical Requirements

Soccer players don’t need the physical strength of football players. Athleticism and fitness are important, but you don’t need to be physically imposing to play soccer. Some of the world’s top players, such as Lionel Messi, relypurely on skill and creativity rather than strength and stature. This makes soccer a more inclusive sport than football, for men and women.

5-Injuries

Soccer players are less prone to injuries than football players, according to the 2006 High School Sports-Related Injury Surveillance Study sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The one-year study found that football players had the highest injury rate, with 4.36 injuries per 1,000 athlete exposures. Male and female soccer players had a rate of 2.43 and 2.36, respectively.

Should Fantasy Sports Be Legal Or Illegal?

First of all let’s start with the word Fantasy, The definition of the word fantasy is ‘’A strong Addiction usually with something that is not real and probably will never be’’. It means that this sport it should be illegal, Why, because it has nothing to do with sports, sometimes it destroys lives because participants their only priority is money. It has nothing to do with sports nor near any type of sport activity. In my opinion it’s gambling. However, playing daily fantasy for money is legal by federal law in the United States, and also legal in Canada. Fantasy sports are, according to federal law, fantasy sports are considered games of skill – not chance – if they can be won by successfully utilizing superior knowledge of the players involved. The Act adds that the game in question cannot have a prize that is determined by the number of players or amounts paid (think betting odds on game picks), but rather is established in advance of the game’s start., therefore it’s not considered gambling as they say but I believe it’s not correct, because you blow your money on something that is not 100% sure if the participant will win or lose, so as a result, it’s a game of luck (Gambling). Finally, all what businessmen and shareholders care about is money, the system of fantasy sports generates millions of dollars annually to the owners of the organization, the participant may win a big prize once in a while but the big winner is the owners and the organizers of this game (Fantasy Sports).

Should Athletics must have a college degree to go professional?

Yes, Athletics must have a college degree to go professional. in the present world the kind of money that pro athletics get paid is huge and therefore lot of young minds are getting attracted towards it but one thing to realize here is the fact that not everyone becomes a Ronaldo or a bolt or a Messi. it takes huge effort and also a certain amount of risk as to what happens if it doesn’t work out. having a degree provides a back up to switch careers and gain employment and a steady source of income if things don’t go your way. also studying the sport one wants to become a pro in also beneficial because even if he doesn’t become a great player but understand the game well he can become a manager or a coach. in football if you notice most of the great managers were not great players and all of them have degree. degree is very useful for future also as one may earn big amount now but what happens to the future. evander holyfied who earned a lot in his pro boxing career is now literally broke. degree in a way also provides an understanding on how to mage money which they earn as learning gives them first hand experience with such issues which many athletes wouldn’t have to face after they become famous. over all degree is a useful option and should be mandated to go professional.
