About This Course
A big part of sports law is getting agents ready for the obligations of managing high-profile clients. And that’s where lawyers come in. NFL Contract Advisors covers NFLPA certification requirements, agent eligibility, standards of conduct and prohibited actions; key points of agent-player contracts and player-team contracts, and the NFL’s personal conduct policy. And most importantly, we’ll look at some recent episodes of “bad client behavior” in the NFL (aka – The 3 AM Phone Call).
Stories include a mercurial QB skipping a game to play blackjack in Las Vegas, a star wide receiver allegedly throwing furniture off a 14th floor Miami Beach condo balcony, the league’s highest-paid player bankrolling a dog fighting operation, and of course…”DeflateGate.”
