I had a fantastic time sitting on the “Athletes, Artists, Celebrities” panel at Johnson & Wales University this week. It was one of the best turnouts I have ever seen for a sports and entertainment event and it was very well run. Tomorrow, I will venture to Marlins Park to sit on another panel (“Protecting Your Client’s Image: The Use of Intellectual Property Law to Represent a Client’s Business and Personal Interests”) at the University of Miami’s 15th Annual Entertainment & Sports Law Symposium. I would be remiss to not send a public “thank you” to Professor Michael McCann who has included me on the brand new Vermont Law School Sports Law Institute’s Board of Advisors. I am so tired of eating matzoh. And on that note, here are some stories I missed over the past week:
- Not dead, but on life support? [UFL not done yet; league set to return].
- The whole argument over who fired whom got a little ridiculous this past week [Janoris Jenkins’ mentor says CB was behind parting with CAA].
- Somewhere David Cornwell is shaking his head [Players may find cap a bad fit in the future].
- This is just the beginning [Ravens’ McKinnie owes millions in lockout loans].
- Sports Illustrated gets in on the coverage of Leigh Steinberg [‘Jerry Maguire aspires to be you’].
- Noah Croom is currently with Goodwin Sports [Trail Blazers interview agent for GM job].
- I applaud Calipari’s stance on the new NCAA rule [New NCAA draft rule leads to flurry of off-court activity].
- John Tobias is president of Lagardere Unlimited Tennis [Tobias honored as one of the best in business].
