Had a fantastic time at the Sports Law for Rookies and Veterans event held in Miami, FL yesterday.  Great discussions on every panel, and I very much enjoyed sitting along with extremely qualified colleagues on the “Locker Rooms & Employment Law” panel.  Sports Agent Blog also served as a proud sponsor of the event.  Richie Incognito and the Northwestern University football team unionization effort kept us occupied for over an hour.  Next weekend I am off to Las Vegas to see a client.  This is a rare weekend that I will remain in sunny South FL.  On FORBES: (1) Second Sports PR Summit To Join PR Executives With National Media Members; (2) Vault-Like Services Could Be Next Fantasy Sports Success Stories; (3) NBA’s Social Media Activity Soars In Connection With NBA Cares Campaign; (4) Vernon Davis IPO Set To Change The Way We Value Sports; (5) Can Online Poker Become The New King Of New York?; and (6) Northwestern Football Union Vote Is A Winner, Even If It Fails.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
