I am smack in the middle of Week 1 of studying for the Florida and Multistate Bar Exam. If I had no time management skills, I would crash and burn trying to manage studying for this mega test along with everything else I am doing at the same time. I wish I were out in Arizona instead, enjoying the Sports Lawyers Association’s 36th Annual Conference. By the way, can I please lock in my season tickets now on the condition that the Miami Heat sign Wade, James, and Bosh? It could happen…right? A little over two weeks until the MLB Rule 4 Draft, and we are still adding to the list of players that we are advising every week. Meanwhile, our MLB affiliated players continue to perform well. Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
- I can’t imagine what Drew Rosenhaus thought to himself when he came across this [UScream: NFL Lineman Showers Live On Internet].
- Already talking about his endorsement appeal and he hasn’t even taken a snap yet with his new team [Will move to D.C. increase Donovan McNabb’s sponsor capital?].
- I would like to read more about financial advisors offering financial discipline to their clients [A rookie’s most important business decision].
- A college football player’s take on the NCAA licensing players’ likeness during and after their collegiate careers [Should The NCAA Forever Own My Rights?].
- The not-so-glamorous world of negotiating low-round rookie contracts [Negotiating the lower-round rookie deals].
- A good clause for agents to try to place in their vets contracts [Players Who Cannot Be Offered Arbitration].
- What actions teams have taken leading up to June 7-9 [Behind The Scenes Of The MLB Draft].
- My read of the week – about Hank Greenberg’s son, Steve Greenberg [The king of the sports deal].

Hey Darren, I noticed justin milo is no longer on the uvm hockey team, do you know why he was dismissed? Is this maybe better for him so that he can focus on baseball instead of being a 2 sport athlete? Thanks
Milo is now full-time in the Yankees org. http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?pos=RF&sid=milb&t=p_pbp&pid=573037
Yeah i noticed he is playing full time now, but i guess im asking like why is he no longer with the vermont hockey team, cause we was playing both sports wasnt he? did he quit hockey just to focus on baseball? did something else happen? i follow college hockey and if i remember he was one of the better players in the ECAC
He was playing both sports. I know that he was most interested in playing professional baseball, even though he is a very talented hockey player.
Good luck with the studying. I start my prep class June 1st. Time management is key. Best piece of advice I received was study hard, but don’t overstudy. Remember to take some small amount of time each day for yourself to do something fun.
The Greenberg link is a fantastic read. Anyone with any interest in sports business or sports law needs to read it.
