Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (9/11/09)

As a self-proclaimed moderate (fiscally conservative, socially liberal), I do not confuse Judaism with liberalism.  Seems like a lot of people may, though.  Fantasy drafts complete and one game into the season, are you as pumped about the start of the NFL regular season as the majority of men in the United States?  Are you as pumped as I am for the start of the Pacific Coast League Playoffs?  I am rooting hard for the Memphis Redbirds and their closer Pete Parise, who is a Dynasty client.  How do you like the new bottom toolbar?  I found it less intrusive and much more social.  Chat with your friends and share content much more easily with our new features.  Should be another easy win for the Gators this weekend against Troy.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:

By Darren Heitner

Darren Heitner created Sports Agent Blog as a New Year's Resolution on December 31, 2005. Originally titled, "I Want To Be A Sports Agent," the website was founded with the intention of causing Heitner to learn more about the profession that he wanted to join, meet reputable individuals in the space and force himself to stay on top of the latest news and trends.

Heitner now runs Heitner Legal, P.L.L.C., which is a law firm with many practice areas, including sports law and contract law. Heitner has represented numerous athletes and sports agents as legal counsel. He has also served as an Adjunct Professor at Indiana University Bloomington from 2011-2014, where he created and taught a course titled, Sport Agency Management, which included subjects ranging from NCAA regulations to athlete agent certification and the rules governing the profession. Heitner serves as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, where he teaches a Sports Law class that includes case law surrounding athlete agents and the NCAA rules.
