The Business of Sports Network Autisim Awareness Challenge
Written by Maury Brown   
Tuesday, 15 April 2008 10:26

Maury BrownAs the Founder and President of the Business of Sports Network, I want to issue a challenge to those in the sports media: spread autism awareness. Over the last 48 hours, I have seen mainstream and alternative media rise to this occasion since I made it known publicly that one of our sons has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) (see details here at When Sports Becomes a Small Matter: A Child and Autism).

Those outlets and individuals include:

I have also been overwhelmingly touched by personal stories from those with ASD, or parents and family members of someone with ASD, and the well wishes from colleagues and readers. With each correspondence, I have become more educated, and inspired. "Thanks" seems to fall far short of what they mean to our family.

Here is my challenge… Post the following info, or if space does not permit, link to this article. In doing so, you help spread the word about autism and allow parents to get their child diagnosed as early as possible. Remember, my son is Travis. While he will grow up with ASD, he is an individual, as all are that are touched by ASD. I hope you will take up this challenge:

The following information comes by way of the Autism Society of America:

  • 1 out of 150 children in U.S.
  • 1 out of 90 boys
  • Affects four times as many boys as girls
  • Lifetime cost of caring for a child with autism: $3.5 to $5 million
  • Current annual cost to U.S.: $35 billion
  • Estimated annual cost by 2010: $90 billion
  • 1.5 million Americans affected

All my best,
Maury Brown

BSN Update: Interview - Darren Rovell on Nike Documentary
Written by Maury Brown   
Tuesday, 19 February 2008 09:22

Darren RovellNike. The goddess of victory. The “Swoosh”. The aura. They are Phil Knight and Bob Bowerman. It is life “inside the berm”, and “Just Do It.” We are, of course, talking about Nike, the global footwear and apparel company that is truly a $16 billion empire. The Beaverton, OR. based company has redefined what athletics companies are about. Whether it is their Maxims (It is our Nature to Innovate. Evolve Immediately. Do the Right Thing., etc.), the story of Nike is about something more than just "shoes and apparel". Whether it is Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, ad agency Wieden + Kennedy, or questions about labor practices in third world countries such as Vietnam where Nike shoes are manufactured, the story of Nike was made for television.

With that, CNBC and sports business reporter Darren Rovell has made, what can really be defined as a “Made for Hollywood” documentary entitled, “Swoosh: Inside Nike”, The one hour documentary that goes into, not only the business side of Nike, but their evolution, their culture, their labor practices, and their aura. Rovell and CNBC literally spanned the globe to capture the story. Whether it was visiting Nike’s sprawling world headquarters in Beaverton, interviewing Michael Jordan in Charlotte, Charles Barkley in NYC, or going to Vietnam to see shoes being manufactured, the documentary does an outstanding job at explaining the phenomenon that is Nike.

Swoosh: Inside NikeFor those interested in seeing “Swoosh: Inside Nike,” it can next be seen Sunday, Feb. 24 at 10pm ET and Friday, Feb. 29 at 9pm and midnight ET

See CNBC's Swoosh: Inside Nike mini site

We had a chance to catch up with Rovell within his busy schedule to ask some questions about the documentary, and Nike as a business. The following interview covers the logistics of making the documentary, the relationship between Michael Jordan, Tinker Hatfield, and Nike, how the Jordan brand, as a revenue stream, compares to other product lines of Nike, thoughts on Wieden + Kennedy’s groundbreaking ad campaigns, Nike Skateboard, the selling of Nike Bauer, and whether Nike will ever be supplanted as the global footwear and apparel king.
