A sports film is essentially a film genre which makes use of sports as the major theme of the movie. It’s a fictional creation in which a sport, player, team, or fan of a given sport are heavily involved, and that depend largely on sport for their main plot motivation or resolution. They tend to be fantasy films set in sports related time periods, but with elements which may be loosely applied to real sports. Often the films tend to be rather expensive affairs, due to the amount of time and effort which goes into creating the fictional sports world.
Darts is an incredibly popular sport, one which has existed for over 200 years. People of all ages take part in dart throwing competitions, often organised by schools and universities. The action is driven by physical exertion, where a group of players are given a series of challenges, which they must beat within a certain time period. These can include scoring the maximum number of darts in a certain amount of time, or even beating their own personal mark for the highest score. dart throwing is not directly associated with any sport, however it can be seen as a sport due to the physical exertion involved.
Another example of a sports film which would not traditionally have been classed as a sport is Michael Brown’s murder. Brown was a former athlete who had turned to theft in order to support his family. He was eventually sentenced to death, and his sentence was later increased to life imprisonment, however he was still able to enjoy many sports, as well as engage in recreational activities.
There have been many different portrayals of athletes being pressured into using illegal performance enhancing drugs. However, it seems that in the case of Michael Brown, this was in fact used as a method of manipulating and moulding him to use drugs. The extent of this manipulation and the extent to which it went unnoticed are what made the story so disturbing. Sports media in particular was highly critical of the way the authorities handled the situation, characterising it as a case of police corruption and police brutality. It is therefore hard to see why there is still so much debate about whether sports stars such as Michael Brown need to be monitored by sports governing bodies and whether they should be banned from sporting events altogether.
After the recent scandals and negative coverage surrounding sports, it is clear that there is growing interest and scepticism around how these games are regulated and controlled. This controversy is likely to continue to grow as the future impact of these games on young people grows. Many youngsters engage in playing CS:GO and other competitive gaming events in an attempt to make some money. However, the danger of these young people potentially suffering harmful long term effects from too much computer game and physical exertion is real. For this reason, it is clear that there will continue to be great interest in how the governing bodies of certain teams and sports will respond to the increasing pressure from fans, advertisers, stakeholders and competitors.
There is no doubt that there has been an unhealthy obsession with sports that can lead to unhealthy activity and unhealthy lifestyles. The problem is that this obsession does not always require a link between sport and physical exertion or positive health. It can often just be a result of a person’s desire to participate in a particular sport. This unhealthy obsession has caused a lot of negative coverage and commentary, particularly concerning the impact it can have on young people and the potential damage it can have on their mental and physical wellbeing. This unhealthy obsession with sports and computer game play is likely to continue to influence many areas of sports and culture in the future. It is clear that the impact of these particular games and the influence of sportsmanship will become greater in the coming years.
