Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (10/18/2012)
Huge game this weekend between my Florida Gators and South Carolina. I have a trial set to begin on Monday, so do not expect too much out of me in the immediate future. My contributions on Forbes.com this week included: 1) The Brooklyn Nets Are Not Found At Nets.com, But They Should Be!; 2) Red Bull Stratos Worth Tens Of Millions Of Dollars In Global Exposure For The Red Bull Brand; and 3) Nike’s Disassociation From Lance Armstrong Makes Nike A Stronger Brand. Here are some stories I failed to cover over the past week:
- Lots of Miami Heat players signing up with the Chinese brand [Harris and Pittman sign with Peak and more could follow].
- Blame Proskauer Rose? Sounds silly [Meet the Lockout Lawyers Destroying Sports].
- Looking forward to reading the players’ response to the NFL’s motion to dismiss [NFL argues players’ concussion claims preempted by collective bargaining].
- Remember when the UFL looked at the history of other failed leagues? [United Football League Introduces California Redwoods Part 1]
- Will the league now study itself? [Marty Schottenheimer Sues UFL Founder].
- Nike named most valuable sports brand in the world [The Forbes Fab 40: The World’s Most Valuable Sports Brands].
- But the most prominent event is a round of the Division I women’s basketball tournament… [NCAA pulls championship events from New Jersey due to sports betting law].
- Exactly [New Jersey’s plan to legalize sports betting incurs laughable response from NCAA].
