Screen. 35 (spring): 14-4 Soap Operas and Sports •As with any serial, the consumption of television sports cannot be defined by the viewing of a single program. •Each game is perceived in relation to the entire season, the history of each sport, and the yearly cycle of sports representation on television.

Screen. 35 (spring): 22-35. 14-5 Soaps and Sports •Like the female soap fan - he relates to the 'characters' of sports as intimates, as 'extensions of his world'. Like his/her agent. You think this person will help you extend your capabilities. •At the same time, he experiences each program, not as a discrete text, but as an open, continuous, and never-ending story, which penetrates - at the same time as it takes him away from - his own reality.

Screen. 35 14-9 An Integral Part of Masculine Work and Play Rather than providing an 'escape' from the routines of everyday life, the mass consumption of television sport must be seen as an integral part of masculine work and play. males cycle of work and play Source: Rose, A. & Friedman, J. (1994). Television sport as mas(s)culine cult of distraction. Screen. 35 (spring): 22-35. 14-10 An Integral Part of Masculine Work and Play •The distracted consumption of sport by television spectators reflects and reifies the patterns of perception and the skills required of the postindustrial male worker. Skills? see next slide Postindustrial Labor •Postindustrial labor may – like housework - actually require distraction. Being distracted is part of the cycle •In the service sector, management, and sales-oriented occupations, men and women alike are expected to concentrate on several tasks at once, to be constantly interruptable, and to focus on the needs of others. Utopian Imaging Sports programming on television is a vehicle for the Utopian imaging - and reification - of corporate and patriarchal ideals of the masculine. Masculine values in sports, not females. Which is why male sports do better in theory (no female NFL). Rhetoric of Sports …television sport embraces the ideals of democracy: equal opportunity, fairness, and a balance between individual achievement and the collective good. This could play a passive role in our society while also promoting male values and can represent democracy. From watching sports, we know we have to play by the rules and engage in competition whereas in other countries this isn’t so– less of a competition perhaps. Rhetoric of Sports …the rhetoric of sport reiterates an ethic of integration and incorporation: insisting that individuals put aside differences, put the team first, and play by the rules. In this way, sports discourse seems ultimately to reify the dominant values of corporate USA.

First, the impact upon the institutions, rituals, and practices of organized sport; and second, the impact upon spectators, the television audience, and social practices more generally. How could TV change the rules/rituals for sports? When its programmed (Sunday night football vs college ball satuday) we organize our time around when TV tells us to be there. Rules- “shot clock” is used to quicken the game to make it more entertaining for TV viewers which comes from pressure from the advertisers (more exciting games= more attention to ads). = more money Rituals- “Gatorade moment” end of thrilling game someone (coach) gets dumped with Gatorade (product placement) TV’s Impact on Sports Television transformed sport into a set of commodified global spectacles, producing huge audiences and massive new sources of income. So they have a viewership TV’s Impact on Sports By manipulation of time and space, the television version became in some ways superior to the experience of live spectatorship. TV’s Impact on Sports • Technological innovation eventually enabled a naturalistic perfection that enhanced the value and appeal of televised events. • By extending the live network globally, television enabled the transmission of events from any part of the globe and their dissemination and consumption to much of the world. TV’s Impact on Sports The widespread availability of television sport in cafés and bars around the world enables this communal viewing audience in both domestic and public space. TV’s Impact on Sports Television has undermined the embedded localism of sport, enabling the emergence of global fan bases for the market leaders—the New York Yankees, the Dallas Cowboys, Real Madrid, and Manchester United. Sports fans can be global TV’s Impact on Sports •Along with technological and aesthetic transformation came an economic transformation. •By making television sport attractive to sponsors and advertisers, new forms of revenue for sport were established and grew rapidly from the 1960s. TV’s Impact on Sports Sport is still multifaceted, but among other functions, it has certainly become a branch of the advertising and promotion industry as a result of television.

The more of the athlete you see and the more of a person they are to you, then the “real”er they become and once you begin to see more of their facial features you believe you know them better and have a more personal relationship TV’s Impact on Sports •The governing bodies of sport became desperate to offer television what it wanted in order to secure these revenues. •These processes led to the undermining of nineteenth- century benevolent paternalist and voluntary sport governance by new entrepreneurial sport agencies and forced sport governing bodies to transform themselves to accommodate the primacy of television, commercialization, and commodification. You must celebrate the athleticism now as well as the game TV’s Impact on Sports By the mid-1980s, amateurism was all but dead, and most governing bodies had been forced to come to terms with the new world of sport agents, sponsorship brokers, and television deals.
