7:05 - California Sports Lawyer, Jeremy Evans, visits live and in-person from California. We discuss the early years of Sports Law, why the Competition Circuit was absolutely the coolest part of law school, how to effectively network within the industry, marketing once you are in practice, and the importance of non-Sports legal jobs on your Sports Law career path. We start here and sprinkle it in throughout the show. Sports Law from coast-to-coast!
16:23 - MLB’s Sticky Situation. The Era where players we once viewed as heroes were all of a sudden cast as villains. No, not the Hitters of the Steroid Era... the Pitchers of the Sticky Era. Baseball felt the need to intervene and course-correct a problem they felt was out of control. As Trevor Bauer once put it, “70 percent of the pitchers in the league use some sort of technically illegal substance on the ball.” And how will MLB agents deal with outspoken clients, the MLBPA with suspensions, and teams with guaranteed contracts? How is this even fair considering the lack of Astros punishment? We breakdown the complex dilemma at the heart of baseball.
31:25 - Global Tennis Merger on the horizon and what it means for the rest of the Men’s & Women’s Professional Sports Landscape particularly given the rapid changes to the definition of an "Amateur" Athlete.
36:49 - Horse Racing Legal Trifecta. Straight from the horse’s mouth: “No one is safe from a Bob Baffert lawsuit.” Another round of lawsuits from Horse Racing’s bad boy. His most recent challenge in New York is based on an alleged violation of the Due Process clause of the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution. He alleges he was improperly suspended from New York’s Premier racing tracks without a proper hearing and an opportunity to defend himself. There's also his claim of a contaminated sample that raises some eyebrows. We know this… Baffert is not going to take the Bonds/Armstrong label without a vicious fight in the courts.
52:20 - WHAT TO WATCH FOR — Texas becomes the 6th State to Legalize NIL on 7/1, NCAA Senate Hearing 2.0, NBA Playoffs Heating Up, & More Burritoisms!
