Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (7/1/2011)

NFL Lockout, please meet your new friend, NBA Lockout.  The NBA and NFL have expired collective bargaining agreements and no clue as to when they will be striking deals with the respective groups that are representing the players of each league.  I hope the NBA and the NBPA are able to come to an agreement…if only to see Omri Casspi don a Cleveland Cavaliers jersey.  You know that Israelis are going to stay up all night to watch the Cavs.  All kidding aside, I do hope that deals get struck sooner or later, because basketball and football are the two sports that I enjoy watching most on TV.  Anyway, here are some stories I missed over the past week:




Sports Agencies

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.

Cleveland has a much bigger Jewish population than Sacramento which will be better for him
