Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (10/15/2010)

What a week.  If sports agents were not officially under the microscope prior to the Sports Illustrated piece that has consumed the world (check out posts from this week if you have not yet read the story), then there is surely no doubt that the profession is being watched now.  Last weekend in Gainesville was fun, even though the result of the LSU game was less than desired.  I continue to do a bunch of legal work, and am loving every part of being an attorney.  If you have some work to refer, don’t be shy to come forth.  Clint Robinson is down in Puerto Rico now and should have a fantastic Winter Ball season.  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.
