    I have been a sports nut all my life. I wonder, what is there to do in sports, other than being a player or a coach?

    I do referee football and basketball, but only in the NBA can you make a career out of it. I am nowhere near that level.

    My background is in journalism, but I don't want to be a sports reporter. Every day the same thing, it's either: Coach, you won the big game, how does it feel? OR: Coach, what a heartbreaker...what went wrong?

    Are there other sports-related jobs out there for young fellows like me who want to make a good income and somehow be involved in a career in mainstream sports?

    I share the same interest Robert. I have had a couple friends suggest TV/Radio commentary but it's a very difficult job to get into. I would like to be the arena anouncer (Goal scored By).

    There are also agents and their staff. Sales and Merchandising in the front office, Public relations.
