Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (3/1/2013)

Easy Joe Flacco really has nothing to worry about, even though people can't stop talking about Tom Brady's new deal.

I really enjoyed spending last weekend in New York and speaking at the New York Law School Sports Law Symposium.  However, it surely is nice to be back in the warm South Florida climate, even if it is supposed to reach 45 degrees here on Monday.  And then on Thursday, I’m back up north.  This time I am heading to Chicago to speak at the DePaul Sports Law Annual Symposium.  It will be my second consecutive year there, and I am looking forward to hanging out with Sports Law friends such as Marc Edelman, Scott Andresen and our tax buddy Robert Raiola.  This past week on Forbes: (1) Manti Te’o Breaks Silence, Says Every Team Has Asked Him About Hoax; (2) Daytona 500: How Important Is Danica Patrick To NASCAR?; (3) Johnny Football To Become Johnny Cash?: Protecting Manziel’s Intellectual Property And Ability To Cash-In; and (4) Not Broke: An NFL Player Who Earned An MBA And Focuses On Charity.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
