This Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up is coming to you from Chicago, Illinois (specifically the DePaul Sports Law Symposium), where I will be speaking on specifically on Grants-in-aid & IRS tax code implications for the NCAA. This is a new subject for me, but one that I certainly enjoyed researching. DePaul has offered to take my speech and turn it into a manuscript that will be published in its Sports Law Journal. How about the Orthodox Jewish day school that can’t play in the Texas basketball state semifinals? The school’s appeal to change the game to a date and time that doesn’t fall on Shabbat was rejected. I don’t think that would fly in South Florida. And it won’t fly in Texas, either. The school has been granted a restraining order. Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
- Desire to control rising bonuses for international players [Selig Calls International Draft ‘Inevitable’].
- Yet he negotiated his own contract in 2003 [Apparently, Gary Sheffield is an agent].
- Great article on a couple of baseball players navigating the NCAA’s transfer system [Tale of two O’Briens].
- A deeper look into some NCAA transfer rules [I’m Begging You for Mercy].
- Ten days to make an impression [A Call-Up’s Tiny Window to Impress].
- I’m leaning towards attending this Pro Day on March 8 [Miami Hurricanes’ early draft entrants could hit stumbling blocks].
- Mario Williams would has a rather large Franchise Tag number [Tag Time]
