Abstract I will talk about the movie Any Given Sunday in which Oliver Stone directed. I will talk about how Oliver Stone portrayed war on the screen onto the gridiron and into the world of professional football world. I will talk about how in the movie the owner Christina Pagniacci played by Cameron Diaz, does not see the players as people but as meat. How the business part makes her not feel for her employee's health or mental capacity and only looking at what they can do for me now.
Any Given Sunday When I sat down and watched Any Given Sunday director Oliver Stone really brought out the realism in the football world. In the sport of football you have people eyes glued to the game either by television or in person. You have men and woman young or old watching this sport as a gladiator going at each other like there is no tomorrow. Oliver Stone also shows all the sides in how the game has changed from a true sport into a cut throat business. Where players and the doctors don’t care whether they may be permanently injured as long as they can make extra money in the process. Which the move shows the team doctor Harvey Mandrake played by James Woods clearing defensive end Luther 'Shark' Lavay played by Lawrence Taylor to play. Dr. Harvey knows that if he gets hit or is hit could kill him or be brain dead from all the concussions he has received in his career. He does not mind taking that risk because the only thing he needs is to get his tackles in order for him to get his million dollars bonus. It shows how the game has been changed and molded by television, as we look at the sports announcers who really don’t seem to care about the game, only the ratings. It also shows the coaches and players who really do care about the game and its history with all the changes the game is going through. The movie starts right off with bone jarring hitting and unavoidable injury, which sets the mood for the film. You have the Miami Sharks that are on a three game losing streak, and it looks like they are about to lose their fourth. Then their star quarterback, Jack ‘Cap’ Rooney played by Dennis Quaid is hurt with a tremendous hit from the opposing team Dallas Knights. The backup quarterback on the next play was also hurt and taken out of the game. Then the head Coach Tony D’Amato played by Al Pacino looked down and calls in the third string quarterback, Willie Beamen played by Jamie Foxx. Who then went out on the football field and threw up from nervousness for which became his ritual performance and then after that he performed like a master on the field. In the process of all this happening you have the owner Christina Pagniacci the past owner daughter who took over from her deceased father gets on the phone and right away starts looking for a quarterback to replace starting quarterback Cap Rooney. This is where I feel in Lisa H. Newton Issue three comes about with “Is Increasing Profits the Only Social Responsibility of Business”, and from Milton Friedman he states “a business have neither the right nor the ability to fool around with social responsibility from profit-making. They serve employees and customers best when they do their work with maximum efficiency”. This shows how she was only thinking about making the playoffs and not any concern of her player, to see how he was doing because she knows that she can make more money in the playoffs from all the sponsorships. Then the second game came around and the second string quarterback was in the game and was not performing well in which Coach D’Amato called for Willie Beamen to take his place. He then was not performing well until Coach D’Amato had a talk with him to and told him to think back when he was back home where it all started. That is when it all started to click for him and then immediately he became a rebel, often changing the plays in the huddle, but his instincts brought his team out of their losing streak and gave them hope for the playoffs. This is what brings Frank J. Bonello Issue one “Are Profits the Only Business of Business”, because Robert Almeder “maintains that if capitalism is to survive, it must act is socially responsible ways that go beyond profit making”. When quarterback Willie Beamen started to look good people started to look at what he could do for them now instead of molding him to become a better person and teammate. In this same issue one Milton Friedman states “the sole responsibility of business is to increase its profits”, which is what the owner Christina Pagniacci was thinking about. Then you had Christina Pagniacci and Coach D’Amato began to clash with the future of the Sharks franchise. The owner wanted to trade Cap Rooney who was the leader of the team in which he brought them two championships within his career with the team. At the present time he was at home hooked up to a machine from which he just had a disc in his back worked on from the hit he received in the Dallas Knight game. Coach D’Amato wanted to trade running back Julian Washington played by LL Cool J, because he was only thinking about getting his yards on the field so he would be able to get his endorsements from Reebok. Right before Coach D’Amato came in to see Christina Pagniacci she was talking too two other board members about moving the team to Lost Angeles which brings up Newton Issue number five “Can Ethics Codes Build “True” Corporate Ethics?” I feel that the owner and the board members was trying to go around loop holes just to get what they wanted and not what was best for the team or city of Miami. How can they expect their players to want to follow them if they are sneaking behind everybody backs. Coach D’Amato then began to clash with quarterback Willie Beamen because he was trying to instill in him the sense of team and history inherent and the role of a professional quarterback. Eventually the team begins to turn against him because his head became bigger then he could hold from making his own video, making endorsements and the fame. Coach D’Amato was continuing to fight for Cap Rooney to play for which owner Pagniacci told him that his style of coaching was in the past and needs a new beginning. Then Coach D’Amato told her that in the old days when her father owned the team that he never told him what to do and let him run his team like he wanted to. To make a two hour movie move along Coach D’Amato got what he wanted with his quarterback back in the game for the playoffs. Right before the game in the locker room he gave this inspirational speech: “I don't know what to say really. Three minutes to the biggest battle of our professional lives all comes down to today. Either we heal as a team or we are going to crumble. Inch by inch play by play till we're finished. We are in hell right now, gentlemen believe me and we can stay here and get the shit kicked out of us or we can fight our way back into the light. We can climb out of hell. One inch, at a time. Now I can't do it for you. I'm too old. I look around and I see these young faces and I think I mean I made every wrong choice a middle age man could make. I uh.... I pissed away all my money believe it or not. I chased off anyone who has ever loved me. And lately, I can't even stand the face I see in the mirror. You know when you get old in life things get taken from you. That's, that's part of life. But, you only learn that when you start losing stuff. You find out that life is just a game of inches. So is football. Because in either game life or football the margin for error is so small. I mean one half step too late or to early you don't quite make it. One half second too slow or too fast and you don't quite catch it. The inches we need are everywhere around us. They are in ever break of the game every minute, every second. On this team, we fight for that inch On this team, we tear ourselves, and everyone around us to pieces for that inch. We CLAW with our finger nails for that inch. Cause we know when we add up all those inches that's going to make the fucking difference between WINNING and LOSING between LIVING and DYING. I'll tell you this in any fight it is the guy who is willing to die who is going to win that inch. And I know if I am going to have any life anymore it is because, I am still willing to fight, and die for that inch because that is what LIVING is. The six inches in front of your face. Now I can't make you do it. You gotta look at the guy next to you. Look into his eyes. Now I think you are going to see a guy who will go that inch with you. You are going to see a guy who will sacrifice himself for this team because he knows when it comes down to it, you are gonna do the same thing for him. That's a team, gentlemen and either we heal now, as a team, or we will die as individuals. That's football guys. That's all it is. Now, whattaya gonna do?” With that speech Willie Beamen became respectful of Cap Rooney and his years as a successful quarterback, and in return Cap Rooney became respectful of Willie Beamen. He began to realize his future of the franchise was ending and right before halftime he dove in for a touchdown which made him get hit and end his playing time for that game. Beamen got the go ahead call for which he came in the game and won the game with team work. To end it all the next game did not go as well at which time owner Pagniacci had hired a younger coach Aaron Eckhart played Nick Crozier the offensive coordinator. Then Coach D’Amato thanked the team and announced that a new expansion team had hired him to coach and gave him full control of the team. Then he announced that he just signed Willie Beamen as his franchise player. I also put in the numbers in which football today has grown into a business with:
The Chicago Bears Team Value $984 mil ,Virginia McCaskeyChicago Bears are owned by McCaskey family, who bought them in 1920 for $100. Player-costs-to-win ratio 8 211 2006 Coach Marc Trestman
Sport: Portion of franchise's value attributable to revenue shared among all teams. Market: Portion of franchise's value attributable to its city and market size. Stadium: Portion of franchise's value attributable to its stadium. Brand Management: Portion of franchise's value attributable to the management of its brand. Da Bears' fortunes on and off the field have improved dramatically the past five years thanks largely to a new stadium and the keen mind of President Ted Phillips, a former tax accountant who has been with the franchise for two decades. Phillips is the mastermind behind the team's new stadium, built in 2003, and the hiring of Jerry Angelo five years ago, who was the team's first general manager in 14 years. Under new coach Lovie Smith the Bears reached their first Super Bowl since 1985 last season and are now in the top eight in the league in revenue and operating income thanks to Soldier Field's 133 luxury suites and 8,500 club seats.
Major corporate sponsors are Coca-Cola (nyse: KO), Motorola (nyse: MOT), Staples (nasdaq: SPLS), Miller Brewing, JP Morgan Chase (nyse: JPM), General Motors' Cadillac (nyse: GM), Comcast (nasdaq: CMCSA).

Sunday

...Sunday in the Park The text ”Sunday in the Park” mainly deals with the concerns of marriage, the individual roles of the partners in the relationship, and how you can be together for a long time, without noticing that some of the vital values are missing, from the person you love. I believe the characters in this text are victims of this very thing, where the mother realizes that her husband can't defend her in the way that she wants him to. She probably married him to feel safe and secure in a way, possibly financially since you have no knowledge of her actually having a job herself. In the park however, she wants her husband, Morton, to stand up for her and her son, even though she isn't a supporter of violence and knows that it'll end up with Morton getting hurt quite badly if he does stand up for them. As a result, she takes on the role of the family “guardian” since her husband proves too weak for it. You can see that in this last bit of the story: “But her voice stopped him. She was shocked to hear it, thin and cold and penetrating with contempt. “Indeed?” she heard herself say. “You and who else?” (P. 2, lines 139-141)” This shows how she basically mimics the menacing man in the park, who she more or less must see as a “real man,” compared to husband at least. Those two men seem like a clash between two social standings/classes, Morton being a rather smart middle class guy and the other man probably working class with a not-so-long education. I say this......

...Case Study – Never on Sunday 1. The personal beliefs of McCoy and the Cathy families influenced the organizational culture by only expecting from their employees what they expect of themselves. People deserve a day of rest. They deserve a break. The McCoy’s and Cathy’s share their values and beliefs and incorporate this into the expected behaviors. Their cultural rules based on their Evangelical Christian belief in their faith through letting their “feet do it” shows the commitment to their God through what they do. 2. The lessons for developing high performance organizational cultures for business that are not family run is that it is proven effective. It is a golden rule that all parents teach their children as they grow up. Treat others the way you would want to be treated. Business relationships are not different. This relationships need to follow the golden rule too. Companies can use organizational development techniques to manage, nurture, and guide cultural change and adaptation. With strong commitment to collaborative efforts and human values (the golden rule), group and/or individual intervention is effective. 3. The challenges for a new leader who is interested in moving their organization in the direction of the McCoy’s or Chick-fil-A is to get management to buy in that a day’s worth of lost sales is worth the moral and positive attitudes of the employee’s. Employees consider the no workday as a benefit and feel rewarded. Feeling......

Any Given Sunday - a Sociological Analysis

...Abstract This paper explores the movie “Any Given Sunday” and attempts to discuss the movie in detail by focusing on character examples of the personal functions of sport such as feelings of belongingness and social identification, the socially acceptable outlet for hostile and aggressive feelings, and the role sport plays as a cultural element to bring meaning to life. Additional attention will be given to aspects of extra-sport character behavior and a determination of whether or not such behaviors support sport stereotypes and/or deviant characteristics. Through internet research, library study, and the use of periodical articles found in the ProQuest databases, I intend to apply the functionalist model of society to show that the fictional football team “The Miami Sharks” highlighted in the movie supports stability and equilibrium in the community of Miami based on common interests and convictions. The world of professional sports, especially professional football, is a world that most will only see on the television or through movies. “Any Given Sunday,” by Oliver Stone, is one such movie. It highlights a portion of a season for the fictional team The Miami Sharks with the interpersonal struggles on and off the field experienced by the characters related to the team. This paper explores the movie “Any Given Sunday” and attempts to discuss the movie in detail by focusing on the socially acceptable outlet for hostile and aggressive feelings, masculinity and......

...Hard to Buy on Sundays Melissa Jaronik English 111-86B October 9, 2012 Final Paper 2 Prohibition ended in 1933, yet seventy-nine years later consumers in Indiana are still affected by its continuing impact. Indiana is one of just three states that do not allow Sunday carry out sales of beer, wine, and liquor. Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, and Kentucky are all benefiting of this law. The tax revenue generated to the states surrounding Indiana should be going to the state of Indiana. The ban of the sale of carry out alcohol on Sunday’s should be lifted in Indiana because, the year is 2012 and religious views should not be dictating consumers lives, thousands of dollars of tax revenue can be gained, it will increase sales to small businesses, and it would also make football fans happy to not have to rush on Saturdays to get their beer before Sunday. Hoosiers should be allowed to buy any form of alcohol and any amount of alcohol on Sundays. It is important to understand the meaning of why laws like banning liquor and beer sales on Sunday are put into effect. Indiana is one of many states that maintain a ban on Sunday liquor sales, even though Sunday sales of alcohol could bring in much needed revenues to the state. Sunday closing laws, often referred to as “blue laws,” generally proscribe all labor, business and other commercial activities on Sunday. These laws prohibit activities ranging from racing motor vehicles and dogs, hunting, operating pawnbrokers,......

Bloody Sunday

...Introduction 1.1. Bloody Sunday Sunday the 27th of January 1972 became known as the Bloody Sunday. This Sunday represents a very important point in the history of the partition of Ireland and the relationship between England and Northern Ireland. 14 people had been shot and another 13 wounded by British soldiers during a protest in the northern Irish city Derry for civil rights and against the British occupation policy on this very Sunday. The Events that took place on Bloody Sunday had been the initial phase for the conflict in Northern Ireland to escalate. As a result, the conflict got worse. Shortly after the declaration of the happenings in Derry, an enraged crowd of northern Irish citizens occupied the British Embassy in Dublin and burned it down.

To begin with, the students are supposed to get to know some basic facts about the divided Ireland. In this one lesson, it is not about representing the topic in all of its details. To a greater degree, it is about approaching the topic particularly with regard to war and peace.

"Well," Father said, "I'm going to keep trying. I may ask the committee for permission to bring him here at night, if you don't mind. You know what the night-crew Nurturers are like. I think this little guy needs something extra." "Of course," Mother said, and Jonas and Lily nodded. They had heard Father complain about the night crew before. It was a lesser job, night-crew nurturing, assigned to those who lacked the interest or skills or insight for the more vital jobs of the daytime hours.

The Given Pledge

...The Given Pledge 1. ”The Giving Pledge” is a commitment by the world’s wealthiest families and individuals to dedicate the major proportion of their wealth to philanthropies. It is a project Warren Buffet, Bill and Melinda Gates have created. The intended meaning is to give over half of their fortune to charity. Buffet, Bill and Melinda Gates and others called some of the wealthiest individuals, with intentions that they would give half of their fortunes themselves. “My Philanthropic Pledge” has a very positive attitude, which is obvious since the author of text 2 is Warren Buffet, one of the co-founders of the project. Buffet is very satisfied with his decision, he has promised 99% of his wealth to charity, primary because he doesn’t value money as much as his health and long-standing friends. That is why he can donate all his unneeded money to philanthropy. Buffet encourages other wealthy people to join the pledge. He mentions that giving away 99% of his fortune won’t mean anything to his way of living. Buffet, his children and his wife will continue to live their life unaffected. His children have received considerable sums for their personal use and further life - he is using this argue to tell the wealthy, that even though they give away half of their fortune doesn’t necessarily means they have to change their lifestyle. It can mean life or dead for the suffering, while it can mean a little or big yacht for the rich. In “The rich want a better world?......

Sunday Afternoon

...Ramon Medina Eng 121 5 February 2014 Professor Meeks Sunday Afternoon It was Sunday afternoon; I woke up on a hospital bed not knowing where I was or how I got there. I looked around the room confused trying to figure out what went on the night before. I turned to my left and I realized both of my parents were sitting there staring at me. As soon as I looked at them, I recalled the events that happened the night before; immediately, rushes of vague events flashed through my head. I instantly shoved my head back down to the hospital bed ashamed of what I have just realized. I was sixteen years old when I experienced something that had altered my life in countless ways, some for the best and some for the worst. It all arose when my parents’ best friends were getting married; everyone was having a good time and enjoying the wedding. Like most weddings there was dancing, laughter, and many things that gave out a good atmosphere. Everything was going great. The guest were enjoying themselves and the newly weds had that look in their eyes that made many people smile. While I was there I know that I did not want this feeling of having a good time go to an end so soon, so after the wedding some friends invited me to hang out with them. As worried as I was of my parents disappointing me by saying no I got all the courage I had and marched up to them to ask. “ Some friends asked me if I could hangout, could I please go?” asking with a timid voice.

Sunday in the Park

...Sunday in the Park – analysis ”Sunday in the Park” is a short story revolving around an incident in a park, where two men almost get in a fight. One of the men is called Morton, and he is described as being very pale with glasses and a very pinched, lean face. He is the father of a three-year-old boy, so we can assume that he is comparatively young, although his behaviour seems more likely to belong to an older man. He is a professor at a university in the city, and the narrator in the story, who he is married to, seems to see a connection between his paleness and his job (p. 97 l. 11-12). According to her, he is extremely cooped up in the very factory-like, grey university. He seems to like The Times Magazine, which we can quickly associate with him being a professor. If we read a little between the lines, and observe the way he talks, some of his personal characteristics is that he is unobtrusive, reserved and much more verbal than physical. One sentence in the story almost sums up his entire personality; “He put his Times down carefully on his lap and turned his fine, lean face toward the man, smiling the shy, apologetic smile he might have offered a student in pointing out an error in his thinking. When he spoke to the man, it was with his usual reasonableness” (p. 98 l. 13-17). All of these words describe a person very opposite of the other man in the story, namely “the big man”. He has no name, and we only have the description of him given by the mother, so it can...

Delivery Analysis of Any Given Sunday Speech

...In the climax of the movie Any Given Sunday, Coach Tony D’Amato (portrayed by Al Pacino) gives a riveting speech right before his team takes the field for their biggest football game of the year. The coach delivers the speech to his players as they all watch on one knee, eager to take the field. We, the television audience, watch from a distance, through cameras that pan around the room and give us the feeling of being part of the team as well. We also get the added effect of music that speeds up and slows down as the pace of the speech alters. The different shots of players and their reactions to the speech also help to subconsciously alter the way we feel. If we see a player with his head down in tears, we will feel pity. However, the use of different cameras to show the rising confidence throughout the locker room gets us, the audience, on board with the coaches message and we sometimes are even ready to take the field with the team. These effects dramatically enhance the impact the speech has on us viewers, and is an added dimension that cannot be created through live speaking. Coach D’Amato’s physical appearance parallels his message even before he starts to speak. His messy hair and open shirt with glasses hanging down portray a sense of tenacity and an obvious chip on the coach’s shoulder. He grasps his coaching papers in his hands, shuffling them, pacing around the room. His mannerisms show anxiety, nervousness; he is truly speaking unscripted and from......

Many Christians celebrate Jesus Christ's resurrection on Easter Sunday. The Easter date depends on the ecclesiastical approximation of the March equinox. ------------------------------------------------- What do people do? Many churches hold special services on Easter Sunday, which celebrate the Jesus Christ's resurrection after his crucifixion. Many people also decorate eggs. These can be hard boiled eggs that can be eaten later, but may also be model eggs made of plastic, chocolate, candy or other materials. It is also common to organize Easter egg hunts. Eggs of some form are hidden, supposedly by a rabbit or hare. People, especially children, then search for them. In some areas, Easter egg hunts are a popular way for local businesses to promote themselves or may even be organized by churches.

Sunday in the Park

...Engelsk aflevering: Sunday in the park B.) - I think that the theme in this story is a bit of violence and that’s only because of the big man and the fact that there almost were started a fight between Morton and the big man. I also think that there also is another theme and that I family. In this story you see two different kind of families and I would say that Morton and his family is a family from the upper class if you can say that, and the big man is from the more low class family that don’t care for manners or polite behaviour. - I think the ending the mom to Larry is a bit ashamed of those two because her husband almost got into a fight and her son is behaving like a spoiled kid that doesn’t know how to behave and she is very concerned what the other people in town thinks of her I think. And suddenly Morton snaps because of the big man have gotten him in a bad mood and when Larry cried all the way home Morton snaps and was just about to hit Larry so he would be quiet but the mother stops him and protected Larry, and that is a good example for a man that can’t control his temper but have to count to ten some times instead of becoming like the big man. - The mother to Larry I think is too afraid and just won’t interfere. And then just sits and think of what she would have done instead of doing it, but luckily there didn’t happen anything. Because if there did there would not be much of his husband left because the big man would probably just have broke him like a......
