I find it interesting the differences between American and Ghanaian sports outlets. The stories are produced in two completely different ways. Here, it is rare to come across features on players. Some Ghanaians cannot even name more than five players on their local teams.
There have been extreme problems with violence in the stadiums where fans will beat the referees and players when the outcome of the game does not sway in their favor. To me, this is not acceptable and I feel that it is partially the media’s fault.
Here is an article I wrote for Joy hitting on some points I think that would help decrease violence and develop a better sense of community and understanding within the sports world.
