"Sports Justice"

Ok, we are going to be reading and hearing more about legal strategies and ploys than we are about offensive strategies and plays for the next weeks and months. Get ready for that...

To understand better the role of the law and the courts with regard to sports (amateur and professional) in the US, may I recommend reading:

Sports Justice: The Law & the Business of Sports by Roger I. Abrams

Abrams is a professor of law at Northeastern University and has written about sports law for a while. This book was published in 2010; it is current...

Of particular pertinence to NFL matters, he devotes chapters in this book to:
Al Davis suing the NFL to move the Raiders to LA

John Mackey suing the NFL to acquire free agency.

Terrell Owens situation with the Eagles in 2005 that wound up in arbitration
Also included is a very interesting history of the legal proceedings that created the framework for universities to operate under Title IX.

The book is only about 200 pages long and is not a difficult read. I am neither a lawyer nor a legal scholar and found it easy to follow and to understand.

Enjoy.

I've read (and still have) Baseball Free Agency and Salary Arbitration published several years ago. Abrams is an easy to read writer, I'm sure his latest publication will be a worthwhile read.
