Another busy week in the books. And another heart-breaker of a loss for the Miami Dolphins, a team that is 0-2 and somehow is the biggest favorite on the board this week (sure, it is the Browns, but still). I was in Las Vegas last weekend and had a quick trip to Dallas this week. With a few cases settling, travel should hopefully die down a bit, but not before I fly to St. Louis to participate in a sports business discussion at Washington University A thanks to Gclub for helping keep the lights on at Sports Agent Blog this week.
