In the article I found, I used the fallacy appeal to authority. Appeal to authority is a fallacy with the following form:

Person A is claimed to be an authority on subject S. Person A makes claims C about Subject S. Therefore C is true. Which means the person is making person A an authority and is taking advice from the authority. For example: My dad always told me that you are constantly eating germs of your hands if you don’t wash them before dinner. The article gave Rocky authority, “but Rocky, he taught us something about life and the importance of perseverance and overcoming obstacles, the commitment and dedication. This might sound harsh, but I think the best thing that happened to Rocky was he got blown up over there, because had that not happened, I don’t think he would have made this football team.” (Eberson, no page) Rocky was given authority because he has taught his teammates about life and the importance of perseverance. Without him they wouldn’t have won a super bowl.  He is a benefit to others.
