For the opponents.
A sticker is an object placed within or on visual distance of your peripheral vision, but beyond the range of direct sight. Most often, stickers are used in advertising.
They try to make you remember their brand through symbols, colors and designs, encouraging word-of-mouth marketing.
Team logos are common, as are slogans and other team specific elements. One notable feature of modern stickers is their ability to communicate text using human speech, with several different options for voices and sizes.
Some also include music scores and others enable video links.
These additions can make them more attractive to certain audiences, though they have limited functionality when it comes to displaying information (music only plays while you look at the screen and video is blocked by mode settings).
For the fans.
In this fast paced world, sports are one of the few places people can express themselves. With music, you get to be creative and have fun. Show your skills through sport like football or basketball etc.
However, some people don’t have time to do these things individually. It is a well known fact that most professional athletes spend nearly every waking minute of the day doing something related to their profession.
So, when they have free time, what do they do? Well, mostly they watch TV shows and use social media. But there are many other ways to enjoy yourself without paying money!
Go to the movies
Try buying games for your consoles (Xbox, PlayStation)
Take trips to places such as Disneyland or Las Vegas
Or just go out and explore the city you live in
Any way you want is okay; the point is to have fun.
And if spending hours watching TV isn’t enough time to call it fun, I don’t know what is.
For the teammates
A sticker is an inexpensive way to show your pride as a teammate or something that reminds you of your football experience. Be careful, though, because some players have found out that stickers are flammable.
There was one player in particular who would burn his every time he got a new suit. He hated being accused by anyone of having no respect but refused to put up a fire extinguisher during games for this reason.
One day, another player brought a can of spray paint to practice and sprayed a stickie on Gillette’s back. When Gillete came back from the injury, he had several burns all over his brown jacket. The next game, this guy decided to try to set off another person’s phone while they were watching a TV broadcast of the game. Luckily, someone caught it before it could reach any wires or batteries inside the phone.
That same night, our team leader threw a party off campus at a hotel. Anyone with transportation went there, including me. I remember getting into bed around 2 am when my roommate called me to go drink somewhere. I told him I wasn’t drinking but thanks for the invitation.
My sister and two other friends showed up around 3 am and asked if we wanted to come eat pizza. I said yes and then fell asleep before she finished cooking. Later I realized how careless I was. I don’t think she remembers which friend woke her up, but
For the sponsors
Sponsors of professional athletes can promote their products by having company stickers placed on the athlete’s helmets.
Most sports teams only allow one sponsor at a time on the helmet, but some players have multiple brands going at once (like Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, Budweiser, etc.).
The companies that pay for this advertising get to put their name anywhere they want on the player’s body.
This way, millions of people around the world know who their favorite team is because of his or her work with their given brand.
For example, an offensive tackle for a football team might wear Nike, Under Armour, Nada Surf T-shirt, Chanel Jacket, etc.——> all in one game.
Team uniforms are very important, which is why luxury watches are popular. The practice has been around so long that it is weird to think about it.
For the opponents
A player only gets one chance to make a hit. So if he misses, then his opponent will likely get the ball after him and may score a touchdown or achieve a big play of their own.
Therefore, if you are in the league where players can hurt you with their helmets, why would you want to take that risk? Some players wore stickers on their jerseys for this reason.
Some people were not happy until everyone wearing #99 (the number representing the sticker) was removed. However, some argue that without these stickers, the game becomes too safe and nothing surprises us anymore!
What do you think? Did we forget to mention somewhere that jersey numbers should be worn for protection? Does it follow that People didn’t like the idea of no helmet safety. Yes, no, or maybe? No
For the fans
Let’s look at it from the fan perspective for a second. You are watching your favorite team play football, and one of the players has a very distinctive sticker mounted on his helmet. There is an awesome picture of him holding the ball, or making a miraculous catch with that unique identifier in the foreground.
What you don’t know is all of the hard work that went into achieving that success. Every single test trial led to questions, created solutions, produced results, and kept coaches awake at night.
Consider how much effort was put out by the player before he achieved success. It takes a lot of time and energy to prepare for games, set up routes, take care of business affairs, and wait around while they see what happens.
The player probably didn’t think too much about why he had that particular logo affixed to his helmet, but if you ask him, he will tell you exactly what it meant to him, and the story behind it.
It may not be his actual birthday, or even his anniversary, but someone gave him something special that reminded them of him. Maybe he did something nice for himself, or performed exceptionally well during a game, and wanted to keep the memory alive.
He earned it, so let him wear it!
For the teammates
The football player who passes the ball to you may help his team win, but what makes him truly great is that he can make others feel better when they are down. His success as a player is only solidified by the trust and confidence he has earned through friendship.
That’s why many of the top quarterbacks in the league have wide receivers on their teams. A quarterback needs strong pass-catching skills, but also takes care of the rest of the offense.
It is for this reason that no. 1 wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., or OBJ as he is known to friends and coaches, loves playing with Eli Manning. He says that the trust and respect Maningehas built up with his receivers over time is unlike any other relationship he had in football.
Manning likes using multiple formations and motions, and trusts his receiving corps heavily. This keeps opponents from loadng up on one side of the field.
Beckham states that having a leader at wide out, “You know you have a friend. You know someone will always be there for you.”
The bond between him and Manning is evident. It helps his overall performance as a receiver, and gives him confidence going into the game.
For the opponents
When an offensive player is running with the ball, he or she will often have a hat held in front of them to hide their face. However, when they get within arm’s length of covering ground, they pull the baseball cap out, so they can grab it with both hands.
This is where the opponent tries to make a tackle.
But instead of going for the hand, they go for the arm. That’s because the arm is easier to reach without risking injury to the defensive player. Also, their own safety is at risk if they try to catch someone coming towards them.
That way, they can protect themselves. But by pulling the helmet down while trying to catch a runner, they are also sacrificing some athletic look.
Some coaches tell theirs to take the helmets off as soon as possible; others insist that they keep them right up until the last moment.
For the fans
The stickers give fans something to talk about. They ask questions like, “Why has my favorite player got a sticker for speaking languages?” or, “What does his motto mean?”
Fans are attracted to these activities because they feel that someone is pushing them towards their own culture. Someone is helping them learn more about what motivates them and getting into their head so that they can influence each game with their ideas.
This person in the article may be doing very well at influencing others, but inside he’s still trying to figure out who he is. By investing himself in the cultures around him, the reader finds themselves on an inner journey of self-discovery. This is essential to embracing another’s belief system. Once you understand your core values, you will be able to connect with people easily and enhance your relationship with them.
