One of my classmates answered like this:
Biggest problem in high school sports:
High schools are getting too involved with the media by having high school games broadcast on national television. In a news release from 2008, ESPN announced ?This season, ESPNU, ESPN and ESPN2, will combine to present 19 live high school football games (ESPN, 2008)?. I believe this is going overboard. It is one thing to nationally televise all star games at the end of the season or broadcast regular season games on local stations but broadcasting games during the regular season on national television seems a bit too much for me. By national television stations broadcasting high school games it can get high school athletes to stop focusing on the game at hand and more about how they are going to look on television. A distraction that most high school athletes can do without.
My remedy to fix high school games being televised nationally is to get state governments to prohibit schools from signing agreements with television stations that are going to broadcast games nationally. If state governments don?t have the power to do this my second course of action would be to discourage schools from signing agreements with national television stations by threatening to take away government funding from the schools that enter agreements to have games nationally televised.
