Welcome to the first Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up since the site’s rebuild. I truly hope that you prefer the new layout of Sports Agent Blog over prior versions. The new look was launched on Memorial Day and is intended to provide a cleaner infrastructure, ease of reading on tablets and mobile devices, and some funky tools you may find while wandering around (such as the random post generator icon at the top).

This week on Forbes: (1) This Week In Sports Law: Tom Brady Appeal, Baylor Fires Briles, Tony Gwynn’s Family Vs Tobacco; (2) MGM Buys Boyd Gaming’s Share Of Borgata For $900 Million; and (3) Comcast Enters Esports With Sponsorship Of ESL And Evil Geniuses.

This week on Inc.: (1) Why a Japanese Mattress Brand Is Rooting for U.S. Gold in Rio; and (2) How an Israel-based Company Seeks to Shape the Future of Mobile Gaming.

And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
