Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (8/17/2018)

My new website The Sports Biz is off to a great start (too many articles to list below). And it’s just a start. I see it growing beyond some of the competing “sports biz” sites and, importantly, focusing on quality over quantity. Reminder to follow the official Twitter account here. Not off to such a great start? The Miami Dolphins. And I can’t stand watching how well Jarvis Landry is performing as a member of the Cleveland Browns while Devante Parker continues to be sidelined with injuries. Thankfully, fantasy football drafts are coming up, which gives me an outlet for my fandom even if the Dolphins have a less than optimal season ahead of them.

As always here is the weekly wrap-up:

Heitner has represented numerous athletes and sports agents as legal counsel.
