RRA’s Involvement In A Football Agency

Rothstein, Rosenfeld, & Adler (RRA)  is quickly gaining popularity for charges of money laundering and racketeering.  Bob Norman has the byline on a piece titled, Rothstein Dreamed of Sports Empire.  That article details Scott Rothstein’s extreme desire to be a king in the business of sports.  Whether it be donations or paid advertisements, Rothstein made sure that RRA was plastered on as many places as possible within the sports world, particularly in the South Florida market.

What we know is that Rothstein had a vested interest in RRA Goal Line Management, a Fort Lauderdale, Florida based football agency.  While RRA Goal Line Management is a target for seizure, Brian Levy, who used to work with Rothstein, has kept his company afloat by renaming it Goal Line Football Management, LLC (  It also has a new office address in Bay Harbor Islands, Florida.

I have no reason to believe that the new Goal Line Football Management is not under good hands.  Unfortunately, that may not be enough to keep the company away from RRA’s pending issues.  This is how Bob Norman closed his article on the matter,

The question for the bankruptcy trustee may be how to distinguish Goal Line from RRA Goal Line. Obviously, Levy’s business had value and clients prior to Rothstein buying into it, but how much of the business came from Rothstein cash?

“Of all of Rothstein’s assets, this is one that they could open the books and say, ‘We found money,'” said the source. “They have clients; they just didn’t take over the market. They failed because Scott bought it just last year. He only got one season. If Scott would have continued what he was doing, God knows how big he would have gotten. He had unlimited funds.”
