Shabbat Shalom all the way from Los Angeles, California, where it is only 9 a.m. I am about to be moderating a panel at Southwestern Law School titled, “Pre-Professional Athletes in an Amateur World: NCAA Rules, State Laws, Agents and Extra Benefits.” If you have anything you think I should ask the impressive panel of speakers, Tweet it at me. I took my first trip to Pahokee, Florida this week, and it was not to recruit some of the world’s best athletes who grow up in that town. Instead, it was to take four depositions. If you are my friend on Facebook, you probably laughed at my stories. Anyway, it is good to be out here in LA. Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
- The no-agent rule needs to go [College baseball reconsiders murky rule on agents].
- If Selig rejects a Dodgers/Fox TV deal, it could end up in another messy lawsuit [A McCourt settlement could put ball in Commissioner Bud Selig’s court].
- Prevents me from continuing my interference with contractual relations antics…for the time being [Titans, USC settle lawsuit over Kennedy Pola departure].
- Agents certainly have an incentive to be truthful [Bucs officials solicit agent feedback to construct mock draft].
- No changes, but still an informative read [Breaking down the rules regarding pre-draft rookie visits].
- Focusing on the positive of a school on probation winning the national title [UConn’s Title Is A Step Forward].
- An NBA Lockout should pop a lot of bubbles [N.B.A. Prospects Are Facing Uncertainty Over Declaring].
- Did the Atlanta Journal-Constitution really publish, “Chubby is a likable cuss?” [Bisher: Luke Donald looks like a winner]
