Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (6/10/2016)

I was supposed to be in New York today, but my case settled as I was boarding a plane. So I’m in not-so-sunny South Florida to enjoy this weekend. Then, I’m off to Las Vegas on Wednesday and California on Saturday. I’ll be out of the office (but always connected) for a full eight days. Good luck to all baseball players and advisors taking part in the MLB Draft. And best of luck to Draymond Green on bringing home another championship for Golden State.

This week on Forbes: (1) This Week In Sports Law: Illinois Delays Daily Fantasy, NFL Hush Money, Baylor Bounces Ken Starr; (2) How Wellness Helped Technogym Generate $581.2 Million In 2015; (3) PokerStars In California: What’s In The Cards For 2016?; (4) All 30 NBA Teams Release LGBT Pride Month T-Shirts; (5) MLB Adds Color To Fight Against Prostate Cancer; and (6) NHL Sues Players Union Over Discipline Of Dennis Wideman.

And as always, the weekly wrap-up:




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.
