don't need us to tell you how competitive the world of professional sports and
entertainment is, but it's worth repeating. All types of business endeavors are
not for the faith hearted, and sports media and the like is no different.
your an athlete, even a former athlete, now working in and around the business,
or perhaps your a free surfer or a journeyman wrestler or mixed martial artist...
our hat's off to you.
enjoy the quote that pro wrestler Curtis Axel (part of the Miztorage) retweeted
a few years ago - The Man In The Arena. It pertains to everyone being a critic,
but its the person in the ring (in the arena, plying their trade), who should
get much respect.
fans too. Who hasn't been a bit of an armchair athlete at some time or another,
but for me and I suspect many readers, there's nothing quite like getting out
there and having a go, be it having a surf, a swim, a wrestling or martial arts
match - even if your best days as a professional are behind you.
you even heard this expression? ... Would have, could have, should have? Well,
comon folks, get in there and have a go. Sweat, feel the pain, train to exhaustion.
I can tell you that it gives you a new found respect boost for the few who have
made professional sports their career - their life. They train hard and work hard
to keep the millions entertained. That's worthy of a ton of respect and then some.
let's move on to those in the sports media who have the sometimes enjoyable and
other times hellish job of reporting and covering the sports and entertainment
want to give a bit congrats and shout out to a few journalists and writers whose
work we enjoy and that I felt were worthy of awards and acknowledging, and I'm
not talking about the Oscars, Play Of Week or MEAA (Media, Entertainment &
Arts Alliance) awards, even though we're a member of them too.. Although on the
odd occasion I've questioned myself why I keep renewing the membership... it's
probably because I'm a loyal person and would feel guilty if I canceled the membership,
but I digress.
Kudo's to The Daily Telegraph's Amanda Lulham. We love your pro surfing converge
of both the guys and the girls, and your writings don't have to be about the Big
Waves to get our attention. You are a credit to the industry. Every now and again
I have the chance to check out the work of Will Swanton, who like myself originally
hails from the Northern Beaches of Sydney. I'm hoping to read plenty more of your
surfing industry news reports soon Mr Swanton.
arguable more famous, and certainly bigger in statue, the strongly opinionated
and often correct, Peter FitzSimons. You stay on the polies about the proposed
Sydney stadium rebuilds. Do keep us up-to-state on the latest and greatest with
the Sydney Cricket Ground and I heard about your social media campaign build...
less politically charged news developments, big congratulations to the boys over
at Garage Entertainment who continue to pump out world class sports themed documentaries
and films. Might be good comp or fodder for the Australian Surf Movie Festival
who is spearheaded by Tim Bonython. These surf films and docos sure give a different
kind of feel to Mother Earth and its ocean than the ones courtesy of David Attenborough's
'Blue Planet' and 'Blue Planet 2', who we are are also huge fans off. If you haven't
check out Lin Sutherland's ocean and nature documentaries and television segments,
do so. We've been a long time fan of Lin and her work. Speaking eco, great to
see Clean Up Australia down at South Maroubra and Maroubra Beach recently. Champion
effect. In a perfect word we wouldn't need these clean up days, but this commercial
world who creates and throws out garbage, be it plastics, plastic bags, bottles
and all that stuff is what created the mess. We know the story with some big business
industry sectors such as mining and other big polluters, so we don't have to preach
to the converted here. Perhaps Australia's own world class documentary marker
and writer John Pilger may like to go in even harder on those damaging the words
environment, and don't forget that approximately 80% of the planet is in fact
water, and most of that is the ocean. Other work of Pilger's that we enjoy includes
the story of Seb at Bondi Icebergs, and how about the powerful and shocking Utopia,
documenting the issues of Indigenous Australian in the outback. Issues would be
an understatement, but you get the point. Australian politicians this is for you
- help fix up the issues that Australia has had for over a hundred years... you
know, the White and Black Australia stuff, including Black Deaths In Custody and
corruption and crimes against humanity that Aboriginal Australians have ensured,
and then you can have another look to see if Australia really needs more immigration.
feel good news bite on the business of professional sports is the use and strong
industry adoption of personnel technology. The likes of Fitbit and smartwatches
are really just scratching the surface. Great to keep athletes and regular guys
and girls fit, healthy and safe. Good business opportunities on the horizon for
sports media entrepreneurs and publishers too!
in a great land such as Australia is a wonderful thing, and at least we do have
some diversity in the press, be it News Limited, Fairfax Media, the ABC, SBS or
even smaller publications ran by the likes of Alt Media Group or niche community
magazines like 'The Beast' which emanated out of the Bondi Beach region, perhaps
inspiring others to have a go like Maroubra's Heartland's magazine. It's the Aussie
way to have a go, and we also like to help control the way that Australia is going.
Sometimes the politicians don't like what we tell them. I encourage our readers
and fellow Australians to protest loud and clear when the situation dictates it.
You can generally rely on The Daily Tele, Sydney Morning Herald, the ABC and others
to cover a good protest. Hey, they need to fill the newspapers up with something...
it can't all be advertising or politically spin campaigns can it. How many real
estate advertisements can a reader read?
live freedom of the press, and huge respect to the athletes who entertain us.
The surfers, the wrestlers, the martial artists, the skaters, and also to those
in media and production who give the world the opportunity to see these amazing
talents do their thing. You are all champions, and its been a pleasure to put
the spotlight on all of you today. Surfs up!
