I just received an email from Sports Management firm Flying Start regarding an interesting event that will be taking place this Wednesday in Melbourne, Australia.
Player Agent Ricky Nixon will be joined by AFL Footballer Brad Johnson and Journalist Mark Robinson for a live discussion on Player Management and the AFL.
Ricky Nixon is one of the leading Agents in the industry, and has been featured on this site before. [Agent Profile: Ricky Nixon]
Brad Johnson is a leading AFL Footballer who recently surpassed the 300 game mark. Brad is represented by Ricky, and has completed his Sports Agent Course.
Mark Robinson is a leading AFL Journalist for the Herald Sun and is also a regular guest panelist on various Football Discussion shows.
The forum will be a no holds barred discussion on many player issues affecting the game today. The issue regarding Ben Holland and his contract will almost certainly be discussed. [AFL investigates Tigers] This is a must for anyone thinking about becoming an Agent in this sport.
