** For this class, it is required you keep informed of current events in sports. However, staying on top of your fantasy football team, or memorizing the stats of the Boston Red Sox players is not what your professor has in mind. Rather, pay attention to what is happening off off the field. Issues the media have covered the last several years include domestic violence, sexual assault, concussions and other athletes' health-related issues, labor disputes, tax-payer subsidized stadia/arenas, massive TV contracts and more.
To stay up to date, start by following the following journalists: Shireen Ahmad, Steve Berkowitz, Julie DiCaro, Mike Freeman, Patrick Hruby, Sally Jenkins, Jessica Luther, Diana Moskovitz, Etan Thomas and Dave Zirin.
