At the beginning of tonight’s class, I will distribute a short article entitled “Poorly Crafted Endorsement Contracts Leave Athletes Exposed.” Please read it before class next week and be prepared to discuss it. If you are absent, stop by my office and I will give you a copy. The article was published in the June 4, 2007 issue of the Sports Business Journal. It was written by J. Douglas Baldridge and Don Berthiaume. Mr. Baldridge and Mr. Berthiaume both work for a law firm named Venable LLP. As you know, Chapter 2 of the text pertains to sports contracts.
