Marketing injected sports violence

After the verdict of the board of the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League regarding the suspension of the manager of the Eagles of Zulia, Eduardo Perez, the product of a vicarious respect to the rules within a sports field, expert SEO services consulted the opinion of a specialist in human behavior. This, on the premise that sport instead of separating, unites and recreates society.

Interviewed about it, the psychologist Richard Chang explained why these phenomena.

-The widespread violence is shifting to the sport?

Maybe there are sports like football or rugby where there are many physical contacts; these are elements more than the practice of this sport. Now, baseball is a sport less contact unless a ball is present, but even there is violence of words when compared to other sports. Baseball is common in discussion with the referee if the game is compromised or a final. The same audience adds an element of much stronger pressure. The player does what he tells the viewer.

‘But for that kind of scenario you would not have to be psychologically prepared, in order not to fall into this error rate, taking into account that this does not benefit the sport and the show in general?

-A Athletes is educating them mentally to perform well within the realm nothing else. It’s not like it happens in most cases karate, where children are taught a method of defense but at the same time they are prohibited from use on the street.

‘In these types of sports should educate children so that when they are suitable for professional set an example in society?

Of course, the problem is that the marketing of these sports the same media have become a spectacle.

-The issue of media does not play with the curiosity of human beings?

But is that the media are based, let alone on instinct, but in mental impositions of human beings to sell you a product associated with something attractive.

Then it is positive that the Law on Social Responsibility on Radio and Television prohibiting transmission of these acts of violence?

It’s hard to make the event where making this type of discussion does not covered. It should encourage other sport without violent content as traditional Venezuelan games.
