Competitive Engineering – Case Study Example

PE 305: APPLIED SPORT PSYCHOLOGY Case Study 3 – Competitive Engineering The hoopfest organizers could use the following two methods: Fouls: the committee can limit a number of warnings for each player. For example if a player commits more than four fouls in a game, he should be disqualified from the game and made to sit on the bench and no replacement should be allowed. This would stop the players from committing fouls just to ruin the game.
Points: The total number of fouls committed by a team in a single game should also be stopped. If a team commit more than six fouls in a game than two points for each foul should be given to the other team. This would ensure that the entire team also controls the number of fouls being committed in order to win the game.
(a) enhance action and scoring
For football the offside rule should be abolished. This would reduce lot of controversies and increase the action in the D rather than just midfield. Moreover the instead of reducing a player on the red card the referee should allow the other team to invite another player in the game. This would make the game more interesting as teams would also prepare twelve man strategies.
(b) keep scores close
The offside rule ensures that only teams with a good overall game can score goals. However if offside rule is abolished weaker teams can also score more goals. When red card is shown usually one team is totally out of the game, the twelve man rule will keep the score close.
(c) develop cooperative skills
The twelve man rule would reduce the hostility of the red card and players will increase their cooperative skills by learning to play with different formations.
