  • Negative Impacts of the Media on Sport
    • Increased commercial pressure = win at all costs = use of drugs/violence = undermines true ethics of sport = loss of enjoyment factor
    • Overload - too much coverage of one sport - lead to boredom
    • Display of negative role models through private lives and bad behaviour
    • National prejudices encouraged by exaggerated sensational headlines
    • Intrusion of privacy - cameras could put performers off
    • Certain events become unavailable unless you have certain channels or pay to view
    • Myths and stereotypes can be reinforced if coverage is poorly managed or disproportionately in favour of one sport
    • Rules, timings, seasons, format and structure can be changed in a negative way - end up controlling the sport
    • Some performers may be forced to play more frequently than is sensible or safe
    • Reduced participation due to more armchair spectators and fewer playing participants
    • Minority sports get minimal coverage - disadvantaged
    • The public can have their views dictated by the media
    • Only very few get high financial rewards
  • Increased commercial pressure = win at all costs = use of drugs/violence = undermines true ethics of sport = loss of enjoyment factor
