April Fools!

If you haven’t figured it out by now, has not been sold to America’s Finest of India.  It was primarily the work of Dynasty HR Director Justin Herzig.  He, along with intern Ryan Webber, created the story and the posts as part of an April Fool’s Day prank.  They even created an actual Gmail account ([email protected]) in an effort to fool readers into thinking the sale was legit.  I hope they managed to fool at least some of our readers.  I think it was a bit more plausible than Google’s prank.

Some of you might have been wondering where they came up with the strange names Shin Jut, Barry Weban and Terrier Andhen.  They were anagrams for Justin, Ryan Webber, and Darren Heitner, respectively.

That being said, is not going anywhere anytime soon.  What started out as a New Years resolution for 2006 has grown tremendously in such a short amount of time.  We currently receive well over 100,000 page views per month.  That is due in part to our great readers and supporters.  I thank you for helping me making this blog what it is today.

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.
