It also discusses the role of players’ associations, the power of sports commissioners, sports betting regulations, and more.

The highlight to the reader will almost certainly be the real-life case studies involving big name professional and college sports figures as well as anecdotes from the author’s own experience as a sports attorney, agent, and media spokesperson for college and professional sports industries.
