    Media reports of violence and fighting related to a sport may have a negative effect on initial participation, as parents don't want their children to be involved in a violent sport, for example boxing. The print media possibly assists sports with continued participation. If a person can look in the paper and see the result of his/her team or a personal result, then the person is receiving recognition - often an important motivational factor to continue playing. Constant game coverage and media personalities (role models) in football may motivate people to keep playing in the hope of achieving a similar standard.

    Violence has been a constraint in most sports, for example football matches. Parents do not want their children near a troubled environment, this may prevent good talents from getting involved.

    Promoting involvment in physical activity: violence Violence Media reports of violence and fighting related to a sport may have a negative effect on initial participation, as parents don't want their children to be involved in a violent sport, for example boxing. This may also be the case in sports where the various brawls that take place are depicted on television. Sporting 17:09 11/2/2001 organisations take a great deal of care with the image that their sport or spokespeople portray. They are concerned, when they receive bad publicity, that this may effect the public's perception of their sport. The print media possibly assists sports with continued participation. If a person can look in the paper and see the result of his/her team or a personal result, then the person is receiving recognition - often an important motivational factor to continue playing. Constant game coverage and media personalities (role models) in football may motivate people to keep playing in the hope of achieving a similar standard. A lack of media coverage may result in a lack of role models. This may also have an effect on continued participation, as people involved in a sport may need constant motivation to keep going - this could possibly be provided by role models. Media lifts the profile of sport, which encourages both initial and continued participation.
