Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (11/11/2016)

President Trump. You all ready to say that yet? It comes as a shocker to many, but not my mother, who bet all-you-can-eat lobster on the Election. I’ll be paying up shortly. How about the Miami Dolphins? I certainly did not expect the team to make it back to .500 on the season. Unfortunately, my Florida Gators lost this past weekend, which makes my travel up to Gainesville today a little less sweet, but it is always good to return to the place I spent seven magical years of my life. Quick thanks to bet365 offers for keeping this place afloat.

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.
