December 31, 2005.  That was the day I decided to create this website.  Amazingly, almost a decade later, it is still up and running, and hopefully providing worthwhile content to you that you enjoy to consume.  Please let me know what we can do to make the website even better in the future.  We have great contributors as is, but if you feel you can help this site grow through your writing, then send us a note.  This week on FORBES: (1) MLB And MLS Sign Crowdsource Commerce Contracts; (2) Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl CEO: Buy More Tickets; (3) 49ers Linebacker Navorro Bowman Is Back And Ready To Build His Brand; and (4) Make No Mistake: New NFL Personal Conduct Policy Keeps Roger Goodell Firmly In Control.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:



  • Football agent Jack Bechta provides 10 things for players to consider before declaring [Stay or Go?]
  • The last paragraph of this article is extra-insightful [The Melting Ice Cube].

Sports Business

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.
