Today I started a new blog for Comcast Sports Southeast called Miss SportsBiz! My first post is a follow-up to my appearance on SportsNite last week and discusses the possiblity of hard slotting in the MLB draft. Click here to check out the new blog!
P.S. You’ll still be able to find me here too!
If you think I’ve been a little slack around here lately, it’s only because I’m so busy writing everywhere else! Here’s what I’ve been doing on SportsMoney on Forbes.com since the last time I posted links:
Who Wants LeBron? (the marketing techniques being used by cities to lure LeBron James)
Ranger Roy? (Nolan Ryan and the Rangers want Roy Oswalt)
The Trojans War Isn’t Over. Yet. (an in-depth look at the USC sanctions)
A Big Week for College Football (USC sanctions and the Pac-10 and Big Ten expansions)
The Tebow Effect: Part 2 (learn what a BroncoGator is and how Tebow is one of the hottest trading cards)
American Needle v. NFL: Looking Forward (a look at the antitrust claim against the NFL)
I’d also like to announce that I’ve been asked to blog for Comcast Sports Southeast! It’s a very exciting opportunity, so stay tuned for details. I will also be appearing on SportsNite again on July 13th and July 27th!
I’m very excited to be appearing on SportsNite on Comcast Sports Southeast tomorrow night! SportsNite on CSS is an Emmy-award winning sports program that focuses on Southeastern sports. SportsNite airs live at 6 p.m. EST on weeknights and replays at 10 p.m. EST and 8 a.m. EST the following morning. I’ll be joining the show to talk about legal and business issues in sports that impact teams and fans in the Southeast.
Tomorrow night I’ll be talking about…
Is hard slotting coming to the MLB First-Year Players Draft?
What is the Super Two thing in MLB all about, and is it the reason we didn’t see guys like Strasburg and Stanton until June?
Is expanded instant replay coming to MLB after Galarraga’s perfect game that wasn’t? Do the players want instant replay?
Can you afford to go to an NFL game this season after 18 teams raised their ticket prices?
Why is the NFL Players Associaton suing the NFL over its most recent television contract? Does it foreshadow a lockout?
Was Texas’ decision to stay in the Big 12 all about television contracts?
Head over to the CSS website to see if you get this channel. You’ll see a Find CSS box on the right-hand side about halfway down the page where you can check to see if you get CSS. If you don’t, check back here later this week for the video of my segment!
On a sidenote, I have changed my Twitter name to reflect my expanded coverage of sports other than baseball now that I’ve been blessed with opportunities with Forbes and CSS. If you already follow me, you’ll just notice the new name associatedwith my tweets. If you don’t already follow me, here’s how you can start: @SportsBizMiss.
