    Default Dissertation help

    Hi,
    I'm writing my dissertation on the cause and effect of sporting competitions splitting up and the business implications behind this. I'm thinking of using the NRL, USARL/AMNRL, and Super League split; I'm also possibly looking at HEC rugby. Can anyone think of any other examples?


    Thanks
    Cody Kuxmann

    World series cricket?

    It might be more complex than the others though.

    Will look into it thanks. I like that one as it could be viewed as more international.


    Thanks a lot,
    Cody

    or alternatively, in someways much simpler.

    cause and effect and solution, nicely boxed up.

    Then again, possibly even simpler... the original rugby league split, the following century, and modern dual professional rugby codes.

    and... multiple boxing splits (all those differing global boxing federations.)

    Indy car racing. They split up into two competing organisations. Pretty disastrous for both, I think. I don't know how many followers they have ever had on your side of the pond, but it was a big deal among racing fans in the US.

    Indy was a big deal. They still have not recovered after coming back together. That would add an interesting angle. Also, what about the upstart football leagues that competed with the NFL? You could use Super Bowl III, the game which really made the NFL what it is today after the unheralded AFC champion NY Jets and Broadway Joe Namath beat the invincible NFC champion Baltimore Colts

    Any US sport with the words 'world championship' should have plenty of material to work with.

    Hi Cody, Check out the "World Professional Darts Championship"
    (Example of UK split from Global game back in 1993. Both competitions continue to this day.)

    Depends, how wide is your focus? It'd probably be a bit hard to talk rugby without at least touching on 1895 and 1908. Are you looking only for splits where once there was A Thing and now there's A Thing and Another Thing, or would things like the NFL's various competitor leagues qualify?
