Needham’s message was, enough special treatment to athletes and eliminate the ... are unfamiliar to me and therefore have less of an impact on me as I read. I can only imagine the impact an article of this magnitude would have using the names of today’s college athletes. Needham’s real life examples are his most convincing source by far. The readers of the time could put a face to the name. People knew of William Matthews and James Hogan and put ... letters written by the athletes and trainers of the time. The use of example evidence such as actual letters written by athletes is very convincing. Throughout his article Needham wants to convince his readers that college players are playing summer ball under assumed names and getting paid for it. He produces a letter written by the manager of the summer nine to Walter C. Clarkson, the Harvard captain. “Such a ...
