“This is an interesting argument but in order to be persuasive it needs more factual support–eg., statistics that correlate time spent watching sports on TV with poor academic performance. If you can’t find statistics to that effect, you might interview students who are watching sports on TV and ask if they think excessive time spent watching sports has had a negative effect on their grades.“
“I recommend combining your second and third paragraph as they are repetitive and relate to one another. Very interesting topic and view point. I never would have thought on elaborating on this issue. “
“I find it interesting how you didn’t mention college football, being as it is the most popular sport. Maybe cite on how many views the SEC network or Big Ten network receive on an average game. You’re going to need a lot more factual evidence to support such an unpopular claim. Very interesting view and read though.“
