Ray Rice.  What a mess all around.  But football goes on, and thank G-d for that.  Won both of my Week 1 match-ups in fantasy.  Hoping for similar results in Week 2.  I also would not mind a similar performance out of my Miami Dolphins and new running back Knowshon Moreno.  This week on FORBES:…

Golden State Warriors general manager (and former agent) Bob Myers is earning his praise in his fairly new role.

Happy NFL regular season.  Fantasy football is in full swing, and with my father texting me to ask whether it is safe for him to deposit money into DraftKings, I am now positive that daily fantasy sports is here to stay.  I will be in attendance at the Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots game…

College football is a week away.  The NFL is not far behind.  I had my draft in one of the two fantasy leagues I participate in last night.  You can just smell and taste football at this point.  However, I must admit that this season of Hard Knocks does not have me as enthused as years’…

I am in Detroit today to moderate a question-and-answer session with the President and Chief Operating Officer of NASCAR.  It is my first time in the city.  Back to (sometimes) sunny South Florida tomorrow.  After three fantastic years of teaching Sports Agency Management at Indiana University Bloomington (where I created the course) I am finally…

Quick trip to Los Angeles, but I’m back in Miami for the rest of the week.  August 9 is my half-birthday.  People celebrate that, right?  At the end of next week I will be traveling to Detroit to moderate a NASCAR panel.  I’ve never been to Detroit, so I’m looking forward to the trip.  This…

Happy start to the month of August.  You can almost taste football, which is right around the corner.  Fantasy football preparations are in effect and Marshawn Lynch ended his hold out.  All seems right with the world.  That said, there are issues much larger than sports and I wish that one day there will be…

I had a blast in Dublin, Ireland, where I was able to truly explore the business of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and its global expansion, along with experiencing a part of the world that I had never traveled.  Thanks to agent Audie Attar for helping with logistics of the trip.  A little bit more…

Top of the mornin’ to ya from Dublin, Ireland.  I’m out here covering the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) for FORBES, and the talk of the town is certainly Conor McGregor.  Let’s see what kind of show he puts on this Saturday evening.  This week on FORBES: (1) Home Run Derby’s New Targets Could Shatter Charitable Records; (2) Adidas…

I’m heading to Old Palm Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens today with my trusty law clerk, because one must always have a decent golf game in order to properly practice law.  On Monday, it is off to Ireland where I will be for a week.  It is shaping to be a pretty decent summer.  Meanwhile, the new HEITNER LEGAL is…
