This research project will discuss how illegal actions of professional athletes are dealt with on a managerial level. There are multiple time periods within the paper that allow you to see the changes in management, and how different legal issues were handled from past to present. We feel that the management severity and punishments of professional athletes has decreased over time and this paper will include multiple cases from different time periods that take a deep look how the punishments have changed from the past to the present.
