Canadian Football League Players Association Considering Ban On Dual Representation

On January 19, 2011, I wrote that the NFL should look into the NBA’s conflict of interest regulations, which currently prohibit agents from representing management personnel and players.  This dual representation is currently permitted by the NFLPA as long as there is full disclosure of all entities represented to each client.  As of the publishing of […]

If Jamir Miller Was On The Take, Does It Hurt NFLPA CARD’s Image?

Our coverage of Josh Luchs is not quite over yet.  When Luchs started in the business, he learned that a good tactic for gaining a solid stable of clients was to pick a school and become “the agent” at that institution.  Rosenhaus has the University of Miami.  Luchs had UCLA.

This past weekend, I secluded myself during the days and got to reading quite a few law review articles that I had put to the side to read for some time now.  One of them was Stacey B.

Rookie Duties: Back on the Horse

Well, some good news came last week – Matt had his final doctor’s appointment and fortunately he was cleared to play. While the Louisiana camp which Matt was originally signed up for started this past Friday and ended just yesterday, the GM still only has one defense-man signed, so he has been fairly flexible with […]
