Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (10/28/11)
Halloween is on Monday, but most people I know are celebrating this Saturday. Any good costume ideas? About to jump into speaking season, as I will be traveling to New York Law School next Friday and then hopping on a flight that night so that I can lend my words to the attendees of Arizona State’s 2nd Annual Conference On Sports & Entertainment Law. A couple of weeks later, I will be heading to the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia to accept my 10 NEXT Award, and I am already calendaring events for the Spring. Meanwhile, I am staying very busy working on behalf of my excellent clients, updating this website, and teaching a great group of students at Indiana University. Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
- Titled, The Players All-Star Classic [New College Football All-Star Game comes to Little Rock].
- Agent that was a subject of ESPN’s “The Dotted Line” comes out with a mobile app [ETL’s Play on Sunday].
- Great for integrating mobile app and social game licensing [NFL Players, Inc. Partners with Playmark to Launch New Licensing Platform].
- As long as the owners believe in the UFL product.. [UFL says it will return in 2012].
- Big day today for Blake as he appears before the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions [An inside look at case against former UNC assistant John Blake].
- Scott Norton has been making a lot of people happy on Mondays [Sports Agent Celebrates One Year of Social Media-Based Charity].
- Agents’ average posting fee guess was $45 million and they believe he will get a 5-6 year deal for $72-75 million [Agents Predict Darvish’s Posting Fee, Contract].
- Scott Boras also didn’t represent Cano on that contract and does not get a commission if the options are taken by the Yankees [Cano’s agent wants contract redone; Yankees GM hasn’t returned call].
