The Tampa Bay Buccaneers And The "Curse Of Doug Williams", Richard C. Crepeau Dec 1992

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers And The "Curse Of Doug Williams", Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

With the end of the National Football League's regular season, we have come to the end of another season of despair for the Tampa Bay Bucs. New levels of futility were achieved as the Bucs turned in their tenth consecutive season in which they have lost at least ten games. And the Bucs don't just lose, they lose in new and creative ways. This is a team of legendary incompetence, whose poor performance over a sustained period of time is earning them a special place in the history of the NFL.

The Ten Days Of Christmas: Tv Sports, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

The Twelve Days of Christmas we don't have, but we do have ten days of Christmas from December 25 through January 3 during which television offers a mind-boggling array of football, basketball(professional and college), and hockey. Sports television in the late 20th century may have spawned an entirely new concept of the days of Christmas.

With but a week until Christmas the time seems right for some last minute gift suggestions for the sportsmen and sportswomen on your Christmas list. As usual baseball books dominate the list from this past year, as baseball remains the most written about sport in America.


Shaq: The Latest Impact Player, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 1992

Shaq: The Latest Impact Player, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

They are called impact players. The kind of player who can come into a league and make an immediate impact on a team, and even on a league. They are few and far between. The Orlando Magic has one. At 7'1" and around 300 pounds he is what Al McGuire termed an aircraft carrier, and Dick Vitale calls a space eater. Either description will do. He is Shaquille O'Neal. The Shaq.

Red Barber, Richard C. Crepeau Nov 1992

Red Barber, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Two weeks ago "Red" Barber died in Tallahassee. Since 1981 Barber has been a familiar voice on National Public Radio's Morning Edition. Each Friday morning at 7:35 "Red" sitting in his home in Tallahassee had a warm and interesting conversation with Bob Edwards, the Colonel. He would talk about the sports of the week, his recollections of sports past, and very often the state of his garden and the foliage of Tallahassee.

Toronto: The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, Richard C. Crepeau Oct 1992

Toronto: The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Sunday morning Radio Canada was playing "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" while the Blue Jay announcers could be heard calling the last play of the World Series. It has been an historic World Series: The first outside the United States and the first won by a team based in Canada. And Pat "North of the" Borders was named MVP. Catchers in fact figured heavily in the course of this series.

Baseball Playoffs: Atlanta And Toronto Move On, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Most of Wednesday it looked as though it would be the year of the bridesmaids in the World Series. But not quite. Francisco Cabrerra and Jose Lind saw to that. Lind's error extended the ninth inning, and Cabrerra's single ended it. Facing certain defeat the Atlanta Braves scored three runs to win 3-2 and the Pirates remain bridesmaids for the third consecutive year. Earlier in the day Toronto got a major monkey off its back by eliminating the Oakland A's.

Speech At Florida Southern College, C. William Pollard

In this speech at Florida Southern College (Lakeland, FL), Pollard considers how the free-market system can be a force for good if only business leaders would conceive of themselves as stewards of any given firm's greatest asset, namely its people.


[Review Of The Book For Democracy, Workers, And God: Labor Song-Poems And Labor Protest, 1865-95], Nick Salvatore Oct 1992

[Review Of The Book For Democracy, Workers, And God: Labor Song-Poems And Labor Protest, 1865-95], Nick Salvatore

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] In this slim book, Clark D. Halker raises a series of complex and interrelated issues. Focusing on some 4,000 song-poems that appeared in the labour press in the late 19th century, Halker states that his purpose is to "expand knowledge of the musical and poetic history of the American working class;" to use these song-poems and their poets as "a lens into the larger world of Gilded-Age workers and labor protest;" and more specifically to examine the contours of a "movement culture" that, he acknowledges (14), was never coterminous with the whole of the working-class cultural experience.

Nfl After Four Weeks - Nfl In Court - Fay Vincent Resigns As Comish- And More, Richard C. Crepeau Oct 1992

Nfl After Four Weeks - Nfl In Court - Fay Vincent Resigns As Comish- And More, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Four weeks into the new National Football League season and already there are a number of surprises. First and foremost among them is the performance of the 3-1 Tampa Bay Bucs, who last Sunday won their first road game after 15 straight losses. The much maligned Sam Wyche seems to have his team going fairly well so far, especially the previously disappointing Vinny Testaverde, who seemed to be suffering from secondary illiteracy until the last few weeks. Before you go out and buy playoff tickets, or even a pair of orange pants, you might note that the Bucs victims are ...

Motivating Athletes: Tampons At Catholic University And Bull Castration At Mississippi St., Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Probably the most famous halftime speech ever given was the Knute Rockne, "Win One for the Gipper" classic, which many of us have seen delivered by Pat O'Brien in "The Knute Rockne Story." It is remembered as well because the Gipper was played by the somnambulant President of the United States who incessantly evoked its memory for whatever feeble cause he was pushing. As motivational speeches go this one has no peer.

Nfl: Some Labor History, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Over the past three months an antitrust suit was before a jury of eight women in a Minneapolis Federal Court. Eight players brought suit against the National Football League claiming that the Plan B free agency system was illegal.The verdict rendered last week ruled Plan B too restrictive and awarded four of the players considerable damages, while leaving the NFL to pay the legal fees for both sides. These fees are in excess of $10M. Other matters of free agency arising from the decision are yet to be ruled upon by the judge.

On Sport and Society

Philip Lowry chose the title Green Cathedrals for his book on the baseball parks of America because of the religious devotion that baseball fans seem to bring to the sport, and the majesty of many of these parks, especially the older ones. Over the past summer my wife and I had the good fortune to visit three parks, representing three distinctly different eras in baseball history.


Baseball Commissioner, Richard C. Crepeau Sep 1992

Baseball Commissioner, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

As I record this piece the baseball owners are meeting in Chicago to decide the future of Baseball Commissioner Fay Vincent. He has been under fire for several months now. The immediate issues are Mr. Vincent's use of his powers to force a realignment, an attempt he abandoned earlier this week, and his renewed challenge to the power of the superstations like WGN and TBS. Some owners see the Commissioner as too friendly to the players and would like to remove him so that they could fly headlong into a struggle to the death with the MLBPA. They would ...

The Olympics And Performance Enhancement, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

As has been the custom over the last several decades the Olympic games, and the trials, were plagued by drug scandals and disqualifications. Throw in a few accusations of illegal substance use and you have the international athletics scene in a nutshell. Three British athletes were sent home for drug violations which occurred before the games, a Chinese woman volleyball player and a Russian woman marathon runner were disqualified for use of stimulants, two Americans, a male hammer thrower and a female shot putter were disqualified for use of anabolic steroids, and countless others were disqualified before the games began ...

Pat Williams Magician- St. Petersburg Giants - Nbc's Final Olympic Overkill, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

There is Magic. There is the Orlando Magic. And now there is the Magician. Pat Williams has clearly earned that title for his latest prestidigitation. I don't know anyone who thought that Williams could pull off the signing of Shaquille O'Neal prior to the deadline to match the offer sheet that Dallas had tendered to Stanley Roberts. Certainly the fact that Rich DeVoss was willing to shell out $40M to get the deal done, and then turn around and cough up another $15M of pocket change for Stanley, made Pat's job a little easier. But nonetheless, Pat ...

Does Sex Discrimination Exist In Faculty Salaries At Western Kentucky University? An Empirical Examination Of The Wage Gap, Reed Vesey Aug 1992

Does Sex Discrimination Exist In Faculty Salaries At Western Kentucky University? An Empirical Examination Of The Wage Gap, Reed Vesey

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

This thesis examines wage differentials between male and female faculty salaries at Western Kentucky University. A human capital model of salary determination is examined by using regression analysis on relevant personal and job characteristics of faculty members. A large portion of the wage gap between men and women is explained through differences in the personal and job characteristics. A portion of the wage gap remains unexplained, however, the probability of discrimination playing a substantial role in salary is very small.

Olympics In Barcelona: Up Close And Personal, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

The 1992 Summer Olympics from Barcelona is less than a week old and already I am irritated by any number of things, but especially by NBC. Those who chart such things tell us that NBC will provide 161 hours of mostly taped coverage of the XXVth Olympiad. What they don't tell us is that of these 161 hours, approximately 10 minutes of each hour contains actual event coverage. The other 50 minutes of the hour are filled with commercials from every major U.S. corporation featuring Olympic athletes past and present; promotional spots for NBC programming; endless carping about ...

Wimbledon - Baseball At Mid-Season, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

The world's oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament is heading into its final weekend. Strawberries and cream at Wimbledon go back over a century, and the royal trappings surrounding this tournament are enough to make a tennis millionaire feel right at home. One suspects however that this year Lady Diana will not make her usual appearance in the Royal Box at Centre Court, with most of the love having gone out of her game.
