From all of us at TWB, thank you for following along and engaging over the past year. It was quite a year for sports legal stories, so much so that five of the top six stories in all of sports (as judged by the Associated Press) involved sports legal issues. It seems like every year there is an increasing appetite for coverage of legal stories in sports (for better or worse) and 2017 did not disappoint.
We are also happy to report that the site has been named one of Forbes’ Top 50 Must Follow Sports Business Accounts for 2017 (for the second year in a row) and our podcast, Conduct Detrimental, was named one of the top 25 legal podcasts by the American Bar Association Journal.
A special thanks to all of the great contributors to this site. Due to moving a couple of times and launching/working to grow a sports law firm, I did not have as much time to devote to the site as in the past and I truly appreciate the writers keeping the content up to date.
We look forward to another year of great sportslaw stories to cover. Thank you again for following and happy holidays and new year to all!
