It feels like every week, I am publishing a Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up from a new location. This week it is from Boston, Massachusetts, where I am speaking on the NBA Collective Bargaining Panel at the Harvard Law School 2012 Sports Law Symposium. Crazy week of NFL stories. The NFL handed down stern penalties on those involved in the New Orleans Saints bounty scheme, Peyton Manning signed with the Denver Broncos, my Miami Dolphins remained the laughingstock of the league, and Tim Tebow thought he was going to be a part of the New York Jets, but someone at the Jets forgot to read his contract, and then they ended up getting Tebow anyway. Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
- Tom Condon was negotiating with the 49ers for two quarterbacks that he represents…at the same time [Conflicting interests for agent of Manning, Smith].
- So the conflict is okay because it is commonplace? [More Manning-related fodder].
- Exhibit A = Pierre Garcon [NFL Free Agents Gain New Power With Social Media].
- He lost two years ago against Kevin Mawae [Foxworth is expected to be the next NFLPA president].
- Young former intern of Priority Sports is doing big things as a coach [Olmsted Falls star Steve Gansey enjoying D-League coaching stint at age 26].
- Good information about the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee and its importance with the earlier Early Entry Withdrawal deadline [Testing the NBA Draft Waters in 2012].
- He represents clients that have won a combined 102 Olympic medals [PMG Sports agent Evan Morgenstein talks about life as an agent in an Olympic year].
- Neil worked in the legal department for the UFC [How I Landed My Dream Sports Internship].
