Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (11/23/2012)

I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving and that all readers enjoy a relaxing and enjoyable weekend.  I am going to see the new(ish) James Bond today.  The weather is absolutely gorgeous in Florida; it’s no wonder that I, and practically every athlete, chooses to live here.  Some of my recent Forbes stories include: (1) USA Football Prioritizes Player Safety With Educational And Charitable Mobile App; (2) Andrew Bynum Hurts Knee While Bowling; Should 76ers Be Permitted To Withhold Pay?; (3) Which Night Of NFL Programming Provides The Biggest Bang For The Buck?; and (4) NCAA’s Desire For Control Has Turned From Being An Inconvenience Into Bullying.  As always, here are some recent links that I did not cover on this site:




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.
