Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (4/13/2018)

Let's see what happened this past week. We had the news of the 4 major players associations deciding that they were going to break silence on their position concerning sports betting. They want a seat at the table when it comes to discussions over how players' image rights will be used,

I suppose the big story of the week was NFL offensive lineman Richie Incognito firing his agency, Athletes First, via Twitter. Interestingly enough, it wasn't the first time he took to Twitter to terminate his relationship with the sports agency (soon thereafter rethinking that decision). Otherwise, the large sports agent-related

Shabbat Shalom and a Happy Easter/Happy Passover to all readers. I posted a quick LinkedIn article this week that explains a little bit of background on how/when this website began. I'm off to the 2018 Miami  Open Tournament today to catch some tennis. Enjoying the Miami Heat's recent success and

Sorry about my absence last week. It was my 8th annual trip to Las Vegas for March Madness, the time zone change threw me off, college basketball took my attention away and I was busy doing things like filing a couple of trademark applications for UMBC. But enough with excuses!

It is with great pleasure that I am announcing the availability of the Second Edition of my book How to Play the Game: What Every Sports Attorney Needs to Know, published by the American Bar Association. While it is certainly something many lawyers (and especially sports lawyers) as well as

It was a very tough week, as I have dealt with losing a client and friend in Dan Fegan. Interestingly, although I have covered the sports agent industry and served as legal counsel for many in the space over many years, I only first started speaking with and assisting Fegan

It's been an incredibly sad week in the aftermath of the shooting at Stoneman Douglas high school in nearby Parkland, Florida. I commend all of the students for speaking up to share their thoughts on what can and should be done in an effort to prevent these types of tragedies

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (2/16/2018)

What a terrible week with the inclusion of a school shooting at nearby Parkland high school Stoneman Douglas. My thoughts are with everyone grieving nearby. I'll start this week's wrap-up by republishing something I recently wrote on my LinkedIn page: Ad Matai. I've been to Israel a few times in my

Happy birthday to me! I turn 33-years-old today, a far cry from the 21-year-old who started this website. This site and I have done quite a bit of developing over the years, and hopefully that will only continue into the future.  I've been doing a lot more posting over on

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (2/2/2018)

I had a great time yesterday making my annual visit to Professor Carfagna's athlete representation class that he teaches at the University of Miami College of Law. It appears that there are some very bright minds enrolled who have a strong future in Sports Law. I will actually be back
