Which Professional Sports League Suffers Most from  Dominant Sports Franchises?

Everyone knows about historically dominant sports franchises that just seem to win every year. The New

England Patriots, the Boston Red Sox, the New York Yankees, and the Los Angeles Lakers (among many

others) come to mind. Unlike college sports, for which turnover is rampant, professional sports teams can

form so-called dynasties, staying at the top of the standings for years. Some people argue that this lack of

competitiveness is bad for each league, lowering attendance and revenues; when fans can easily predict

the outcome of each game and season, there is less incentive to watch.

Concussions in High School Athletes from a Financial Perspective

Across the country, and across the world, millions of high school athletes take the field

favorite sport. Often, these student-athletes dream of professional careers in these

sports. Some of the other reasons adolescents participate in sports at their high schools

include: hoping the sports might help get them into (or even pay for) college, having fun

and being with friends, trying something new, meeting new people, getting in shape,

staying in shape, or simply because some authority (e.g. parents, school policy)

requires it.
