Before smart phones, most media was centered around


teams winning and losing and how well players
performed on the
Prior to smart field the media knew the
phones,
information about players and teams before the
public did
Now, with things like twitter and Instagram, media has
a more personal access to the lives of athletes
As a result, fans know about certain situations
regarding teams or players before the media

Gender Media and Gender 5

Male sports are more concentrated on their play and


entertainment factor (e.g. dunking, diving for a catch,
scoring a goal)
On the other hand, media focuses more on females
appearances rather than their athletic talents.

Media also focuses on: sexulalization, feminity, emotions

Females depicted as uninterested in sports (make 40% of


participants

Buysse and Borcherding (2010) stated cultural ideals of


physicality, masculinity, and sexuality contributed to the
exclusion of athletes from media coverage

Media Stereotype: Females have athletic abilities, not


athleticism

Major events like the Olympics tend to


broadcast male events more than female
events, is that fair?
Do you think it is the broadcast companys
right to choose the sports they show?

Glamorized and sexualized media images of athletes


can result in distorted body image

Comparisons and expectations of these images can


result in low self esteem and self-objectification
Self-esteem and objectification can lead to eating
disorders and mental problems.

Have you ever desired to look like a certain


athlete? What is reasoning?

Traditionally, the primary job of a commentator was to


deliver a simple description of the situation, which is
called an objective or factual commentary (Morris &
Nydahl, 1983)
Currently, one of their primary job is to enhance the
enjoyment aspects of televised sports through color
commentary, often
including the dramatic embellishment of plays
Color commentary and consumers satisfaction are strongly
associated with each other, and also it is positively
associated with perceived
quality and re-viewing intentions (M. K. Lee & Yeo, 2011)

Conclusion Conclusion 5

Overall, the role and actions of sports media vary from


person to person

The general public is known to agree and disagree


with the content presented

It is evident, that the introduction of the smart phone


has greatly increased our interaction with various forms
of sports media and the amount of sports related
content produced
