DIYRS: Do It Yourself Rookie Symposium

The following is a guest contribution from Marc Isenberg.  Follow Marc on twitter @marcisenberg.  I will be publishing my review of Marc’s “Go Pro Like a Pro” (discussed in this post) in the near future.  Needless to say, it is a very informative booklet for athletes to read. “The direction in which education starts a […]

Athletic Resource Management and ProFiles Sports Plans to Merge Operations

If possible, I always like to break big news on a Monday.  A lot of people are scouring the news at the beginning of the week, and it gives people the entire week to share it with others.  That’s why I feel that the news of the Athletic Resource Management (ARM) and ProFiles Sports, Inc. […]

What Would You Do…? – Communication Request

After 6 very interesting “What Would You Do…?” posts, the column vanished from this site.  That is about to change.  After receiving quite a few emails from viewers who wished to see the column’s return, we brought on a new contributor, Jim Thompson, to bring it back.  Here is Thompson’s first “What Would You Do…?” […]

Did You Get Your Tim Tebow Jersey Yet?

As expected, Tim Tebow has already become a marketing machine in the NFL. Since 2006, the NFL has been tracking rookie jersey sales. Tebow is sitting on the #1 spot for jersey sales, and has already beat the record for rookie jersey sales, which was held until now, by last year’s rookie, Mark Sanchez. According […]

The Curious Sanders, Bryant, Parker Connection

Last week, I read one of the best pieces of journalism that I have been able to find on in quite some time.  The title of the piece is, The curious case of Deion Sanders.  Be warned, it is not one of the short fact-based pieces you are accustomed to finding on ESPN.  I […]

Connecting Athletes With Each Other + Businesses

Jason Kyle has little to complain about.  The 6’3, 242 lb, 37-year-old long-snapper is in his 15th season in the NFL and is currently playing for his 6th team since entering the league.  That team, the New Orleans Saints, is 12-0, and Jason has played in all 12 games.  He works hard on and off […]

LenDale White Switches To Rosenhaus Sports

That tweet from @RosenhausSports (Drew Rosenhaus), flashed on my screen yesterday.  Congratulations are definitely in order for Mr. Rosenhaus and his colleagues.  Even though LenDale White is playing for the 0-6 and terribly disappointing, Tennessee Titans, and even though the RB has only racked up 148 yards from scrimmage thus far this season, the team […]

No Media Love For Eugene Parker

Eugene Parker has had a very rough 2009 (minus the pleasant commissions that he takes).  Michael Crabtree‘s holdout was the story that would not go away.  It lasted from the start of training camp all the way to Week 5 of the regular season.  All the while, Parker kept himself away from the media.  No […]

Shonn Greene Gets A 4 Year Deal

Yesterday, Shonn Greene signed a 4-year deal with the New York Jets.  I am not a Jets fan and never followed the former Iowa RB closely, so why am I even bringing this up?  It’s because I also happened to come across an excellent post yesterday, concerning the structuring of NFL player contracts for those […]

Athletes Intern Too

With the average NFL career lasting about three and a half years, players have to worry about their post-playing careers.  Athletes often seek employment in the sports industry, because most of the time it’s all they’ve ever known.  Many agents make a long-term commitment to their clients by continuing to advise them when their playing […]
