Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (9/10/2010)
Rosh Hashanah ends and Shabbat begins. College football and NFL football are back. No doubt, the year has officially begun. With a full slate of college and professional games on TV this Saturday and Sunday, I doubt many people will be making out of their houses this weekend. That gives you plenty of an opportunity to catch up on SportsAgentBlog.com posts you might have missed over the past couple of months. For those of you on Twitter that are not yet following The Master Twitter list of sports agents/agencies, what are you waiting for? It’s free and full of agents and agencies speaking their minds. Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
- Final cuts are never really the final cuts [Guys who made the cut shouldn’t uncork the champagne yet].
- It’s a big win for Revis. The Jets make decisions differently than the Raiders! [Darrelle Revis Didn’t Get the Nnamdi Asomugha Money He Wanted, So Why’d He Sign with the Jets?]
