Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (6/4/2010)

Now that we have changed the look and feel of, I am just waiting for the multi-million dollar buyout offers to start pouring in.  On a serious note, though, congrats to a blog I have been reading for a while now, The Big Lead, on earning a cool 7-figures after being bought out this week.  I am sure that both sides feel like they came out winners.  There is something special about the communities of quite a few of the sports blogs that I read, this site included.  I’d like to thank all of you for being a part of the success of this site and encourage you to continue to take an active role in its expansion.  Without you, the readers and commentators, this site is nothing.  So thank you.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:



Sports Law

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.
