  • Penn State Gets An "F" In Crisis Management 101 Tuesday, 8 Nov 2011 | 9:58 AM ET

    In the last four days, Penn State officials have been getting crushed by the media and by fans for their handling of charges of sexual assault allegations that inexplicably reached a dead end without being reported. How is this possible? How can the state be working on a two-year investigation and Spanier and Paterno, in their first public comments, act as if they were blindsided?

  • How Are Penn State Fans Reacting To Scandal Today? Monday, 7 Nov 2011 | 12:15 PM ET

    As the Penn State sexual assault allegations and perjury claims swirl, I wondered how Nittany Lions alums were taking the news. Would they let the legal process play out or had they already decided what to do with their money or their tickets? Here are some thoughts from PSU fans on Twitter.

  • Does Fox Have To Buy The Dodgers Again? Wednesday, 2 Nov 2011 | 2:16 PM ET
    LA Dodgers

    Early this morning, Major League Baseball and Frank McCourt issued a joint statement saying that they agreed to recommend to the bankruptcy court to hold an auction for the sale of the Dodgers. When prospective owners are bandied about, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban comes up first, because he's a fan's owner and he has the cash. But Cuban told the LA Times yesterday that he wouldn't be interested in the team if the price was over $1 billion. Who else gets in? I think Fox, which sold the team, stadium and parking lots to McCourt for $421 million in 2004, could -- and might have to -- throw its name in the hat again.

  • 11 Costly Sports Divorces Wednesday, 2 Nov 2011 | 12:07 PM ET
    On Oct. 31, 2011, the world was blindsided by the news that reality TV star Kim Kardashian was divorcing her husband, National Basketball Association star Kris Humphries. The couple had married on Aug. 20, 2011 in a storybook wedding worth . A mere 72 days later, however, Kardashian had filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.Fortunately, the couple had a prenuptial agreement in place, so each party is likely to walk away from the union with their finances intact. This puts Humphrie

    However long they were married, the price of breaking the contract was huge -- sometimes even reached nine figures.

  • NBA Lockout

    After a marathon bargaining session yesterday that ended in the wee morning hours, NBA commissioner David Stern and union president Derek Fisher emerged with a cautiously optimistic outlook. One of the reasons why is because the players get their last check on Monday and, suffice it to say, there's quite a few that need those checks to arrive in the near future. Let's give a little lesson in how NBA paychecks work.

  • Paid Tweets are a Gray Area for Athletes and Celebrities Wednesday, 26 Oct 2011 | 1:57 PM ET

    Earlier this month, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick tweeted: "Check these prizes from the McDonald's monopoly game," and included a link. Next to the tweet it said "spon," which I assume meant sponsored. So I called up McDonald's and asked them if they were now sponsoring Michael Vick.

    It’s been a tough year for Mike Peduto, one of the owners of Circle City Tickets, the largest sports ticket brokerage in Indianapolis. Demand has waned for Indiana Hoosiers basketball tickets. There’s virtually no demand for the Indiana Pacers on the secondary market. And then, the good old reliable Colts are off to an 0-7 start.

    It was just three days ago that the New York Times penned a story on the old dugout phones, telling the tale about how earlier in the year, the phones malfunctioned with the St. Louis Cardinals. Last night, Cardinals bullpen coach Derek Lilliquist didn't tell Jason Motte to warm up on two occasions because he said he didn't hear LaRussa because of crowd noise.

    Earlier this week, Sports Business Journal broke the story that the NFL was starting a venture capital fund, with the owners willing to put in at least $32 million to invest in businesses. I knew I needed to comment on this, but, to be honest, I didn't think I was the most qualified. For that, I went to Dan Shanoff of Quickish, a media company focused on short-form, real-time news curation and discovery.

  • 7 NBA Teams That Can't Afford a Season-Long Lockout Thursday, 20 Oct 2011 | 11:43 AM ET
    The NBA lockout which started back on July 1st has already wiped out the entire preseason and nearly 100 regular season games. A key point of dispute for both sides continues to be focused on the breakdown of basketball-related income (BRI), which was previously guaranteed at 57% for the players. The league has claimed that 22 of its teams lost money during the 2010 season. Some star players including Deron Williams and Tony Parker have already signed contracts to play overseas as the work stopp

    Texas. It's the land where everything is bigger and sports owners stand out. Jerry Jones builds the biggest in-stadium TV at Cowboys Stadium and Mark Cuban isn't afraid to say anything, until a superstitious code of silence led to the Mavericks first ever championship last season. And yet, two billionaires own a Texas team that will play in it's second straight World Series and even Rangers fans would be hard pressed to come up with their names. And they both couldn't be happier about that.
