SHAMELESS, FILIBUSTERIAN SPORTS’ ADMINISTRATOS, YET AGAIN COMING UP WITH INITIATIVES DOMINATED BY GREEDY. THE WORLD OF RUGBY LOST THE PLOT, WHICH USED TO HAVE BEFORE 1995!!!
RUGBY UNION, RUGBY LEAGUE, AUSTRALIAN RULES, SOCCER, ETC…. CERTAINLY, TAKE THE YOUNG TALENTED PLAYERS FROM THE GRASSROOTS (with million dollars contracts, yet no guarantees that they may become quadriplegic, concussed, depressed, etc etc. any time soon. THEREFORE, ATHLETES AND USED THEM UP LIKE NAPPIES. THE CASES OF CONCUSSION | DEMENTIA | DEPRESSION | PARKINSONS | ALZHEIMER’S and SUICIDE PROVE MY WORDS.
OK, PROVE ME WRONG IF YOU CAN! – BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN COMOENSATION AND LEGAL FEES WILL BE SPENT VERY SOON. ACTUALLY, I DON’T MIND WEALTH ‘RE-DISTRIBUTION’ AT ALL.
Two corporate Human Resources Management policies need to be acted upon sports. Players sign up for a paid job, hence the employers must provide a Superannuation Scheme (with health and wellbeing insurance, also preserved earnings for life after sports. Nobody can map out your future, where there exist a percentage of injury incidence depending on what type of injury or area affected!
Furthermore, OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY also must be instituted to prevent the ‘nappy-like’ treatment and behaviour of administrators. Concisely, more responsibility is needed from both sides of the fence. Weak business means weak future for athletes! Strong business means strong future for athletes, and vice versa!
