  • Advisory committee: SU should plan for possibility of student-athlete unions

    first_img Published on April 17, 2014 at 2:10 am Contact Dylan: [email protected] | @dylan_segelbaum Facebook Twitter Google+ Regardless of the merits of a federal agency’s ruling that football players at Northwestern University can unionize, Syracuse University should begin planning if the decision is upheld, according to an advisory budget committee.That statement is included in a 12-page, wide-ranging report from the University Senate Committee on Budget and Fiscal Affairs, which was presented on Wednesday. The senate is an academic governing body made up of faculty, staff, administration and students.The budget committee’s report said the March 26 decision from a regional director of the National Labor Relations Board’s Chicago office has “serious potential implications” for athletic departments at private universities, though it is too early to speculate what will eventually happen with the ruling. Those implications include more resources being spent on football and basketball — something that would disrupt how sports that do not make money are financed, according to the report. The labor board’s decision would also require that questions about paying athletes in these “non-revenue” sports be addressed.Football and men’s basketball generated the most revenue out of SU’s different sports last year, according to numbers reported to the U.S. Department of Education. Football generated $33,213,622 in revenue and men’s basketball took in $26,039,030. That’s compared to $22,663,307 and $13,788,271 in expenses, respectively.SU Athletics chief communications officer Joe Giansante did not return four calls and an email about the budget committee’s report.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHerman Frazier, deputy athletics director and chief of staff, talked briefly about unionization on Tuesday in a REL 103: “Religion and Sports” class that was open to the public. He cited possible concerns with taxes and “employee relations” — such as if 50,000 tickets were sold to an event and athletes did not show up.At SU, Frazier said, student-athletes are getting an education valued at more than $200,000. They will also not leave school with a medical bill from a sports-related injury and have access to tutoring, he said. Commentslast_img read more

  • I don’t joke with football, it has turned my life around – Black Stars coach CK Akonnor

    first_imgBlack Stars head coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor says while he is not the humourless footballer a lot of people have made him out to be, he does not take the sport for granted.Akonnor told Citi Sports editor Fentuo Tahiru on Citi TV‘s pidgin sports show Football Made in Ghana that he has always taken his profession very seriously, first as a player and now as coach since football has made a huge difference in his life.C.K Akonnor is widely known to be a strict tactician and often seen to be ‘no-nonsense’.While he admitted that while he may not be as lighthearted as many of his colleagues he still has a lot of fun with the sport.“I cherish football. I don’t joke with it because it turned my life and my family’s around,” C,K Akonnor said.“But there’s always time for fun,” the Black Stars gaffer added.Akonnor was named the new coach of the men’s senior national team in January replacing Kwesi Appiah whose contract had expired.He named his first squad ahead of AFCON 2021 qualifying matches against Sudan in March but those fixtures were cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic.However, the coach is still keeping in touch with his players while trying to keep himself engaged as well.“I’ve been trying to stay in touch with the [Black Stars] players while they are at home because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We usually chat via video calls. I also read lots of books to keep myself ready,” he said.last_img read more
