Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (8/24/2018)

Another solid week of The Sports Biz. Thanks to everyone who has supported the new website and followed it on Twitter. Exciting news about Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson doing a pay-per-view head-to-head event in November. Interesting discussions among NFL agents occurred this week that I touched upon in a blog post. To be clear, I am a big supporter of the agent community and agree with some of what they are looking to accomplish. It is refreshing to see the agent community, which is commonly fighting against each other internally, getting together to try to protect their respective interests.

Thanks this week goes out to wonderpunter nfl.

And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
