Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (5/24/2012)

A very diverse wrap-up of links, below.  I hope that everyone has a very enjoyable long Memorial Day weekend.  While there are no football links, the chatter surrounding the pending concussion lawsuits continues and a new issue concerning whether NFL teams colluded to effectively create a salary cap in the uncapped year.  And who can forget the defamation lawsuit filed by Jonathan Vilma against Roger Goodell?  The NFL has its hands very full with litigation these days.  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.
