For insight on this issue and more, Sports Handle caught up with sports economist, Professor Rodney Paul, Ph.D.

Paul has been studying sports for more than two decades. Currently a professor in the Department of Sport Management at Syracuse David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics, he got into the field in 1997 as an adjunct faculty member at Montana State teaching sports economics.
