For the past 25 seasons, DirecTV has partnered with the NFL to bring football fanatics more of what they love, and a new series of ads gives them some time-saving life hacks to make sure they don’t miss a minute of NFL action.
According to the company, NFL Sunday Ticket is still the only place for fans to get every live game, every Sunday, with exclusive access to all out-of-market NFL games.
This year’s ads provide weekend hacks, so football fans can make room for all the games on NFL Sunday Ticket. In ‘Life Lessons’ a man tries to teach his young son all the rules of life he should know in less than a minute, including the birds and the bees, so he can watch the game. In ‘Lemonade’ a woman speeds up the lemonade stand process by pouring all the lemony liquid into one huge Solo cup so the kids can “wrap it up” and she can watch the Raiders game. In ‘Squeaky Clean’ a Dallas Cowboys fan power washes his bathroom, to disastrous effect, as he tries to hurry up his chores before the game starts.

Taking sports as an example, manifest function of sports is to keep people stay fit and healthy. It is an objective that widely and well known by everyone. In contrast, latent functions are unconscious or unintended functions that may reflect hidden purposes of an institution. For example, someone who takes part and involve in sport might intend to gain popularity. It is something that only known by the party or the person himself. Besides manifest function and latent function, sociologists define dysfunction as an element or process of a society that may actually disrupt the social system or reduce its stability. Dysfunctions of sports include the usage of the performance-enhancing drug by the athlete. It does not contribute to maintaining the society’s stability in all areas of football, basketball, baseball, boxing, mma, soccer, extream sports and more.
From the view of manifest function, sports could help in maintaining people’s physical well-being. Everyone knows that exercise is a good way in maintaining a person health. Practice sport on a regular basis could keep us fit, thus prevent obesity which would lead to diseases like heart attack, diabetes, and stroke. One thing for sure, we all love at least one sport.
