Unless you are a Seahawks fan, then you probably agree that Super Bowl XLIX was one of the best games in Super Bowl history. While much of the talk this week has surrounded the Seahawks play calling, there has also been some major news in the sports business world. In my opinion, no news was bigger than that of Ben Dogra joining Relativity Sports. I think Dogra’s presence will make Relativity the most powerful agency in football but only time will tell. Darren had many great pieces this week on FORBES: (1) Avocados Play A Special Role In Super Bowl XLIX; (2) Why Have 2015 Super Bowl Ticket Prices Skyrocketed?; (3) Super Bowl XLIX Breaks Previous TV And Streaming Ratings Records; (4) Major NFL Agent Ben Dogra Joins Relativity Sports; (5) Adidas Launches Footwear Industry’s First Reservation Mobile App; (6) Golf Caddies Sue PGA Tour For Piece Of Revenue From Ads They Wear On Bibs; (7) PGA Tour Golfer Justin Rose Becomes Hublot Brand Ambassador; (8) Ticket Marketplace SeatSmart Secures $750,000 In Seed Funding. And, as always, the weekly wrap-up:

Basketball
