Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (12/17/2010)

I feel honored to be nominated as the Top Sports Social Media Professional of 2010.  It is a very impressive list of professionals with a variety of backgrounds.  If you enjoy my work on this site and my Tweets, cast a vote in my direction.  And this blog feels very honored to be up for Top Sports Business Resource of 2010! Vote for Sports Agent Blog. It has been uncharacteristically cold in South Florida this week.  I do not know how many of you northern readers get out of bed every morning in single digit temperatures.  We are testing a new commenting system called Disqus.  Hopefully you find it aesthetically pleasing and it encourages to leave your thoughts on the articles we publish.  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.
