Twackle…The Sports Fan’s Twitter

It hasn’t even been a year since mega-agency Octagon brought in Jim DeLorenzo to run the newly created Octagon Digital division, but they are already making moves to establish their presence in the digital media and social-networking worlds.  The company has launched Twackle.com, an aggregation engine for sports-related material on Twitter.  By using your Twitter […]

Eh Tu, Joe Torre?

My old man used to have a saying: “Don’t be stupid, ya moron.” Don’t be stupid, ya moron.  Strikingly obtuse, yet somewhat eloquent in it’s own  simplicity, the motto is actually a stroke of genius which should be etched along side E Plurbius Unum on the Great Seal of the United States.  In fact, it […]

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up

I’m struggling to get this post out, but what would SportsAgentBlog.com be without a Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up piece?  The 2009 UF Sports Law Symposium was a resounding success.  From noon to 5 p.m., the UF Levin College of Law was stacked with leading sports business professionals and intelligent students eager to learn from and […]

University of Oregon Sports Business and the Law Conference

It’s direct competition with the UF Sports Law Symposium only because it will be held on the same day.  But at the same time, it is on the complete opposite side of the country, and I doubt that many people on the west coast will be traveling all the way to Florida for our event.  […]

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up

My first semester 2nd year law school finals are OVER!  Let me give future law students a recommendation: Even if you really like three particular classes, do not take all of them in the same semester if it means that your Final Exams for those classes will be scheduled back-to-back-to-back.  Especially on the three last […]

Broadcasting – Listed Sporting Events

In the UK, ‘listed sporting events‘ are those that must be made available for the general public to view on terrestrial television free of charge.

Get Inside The League

Dating back to March 8, 2008, a commentator by the name of Insidetheleague.com has been leaving some very insightful comments on this blog.  From his comments, it seemed like nstratton@insidetheleague.com (Neil Stratton, President of Inside the League and Executive Director of the ’08 Hula Bowl) was very well connected in the sports industry.  He also […]
