Fresh off his donation to Syracuse University, his alma mater, and the sports management school there, super agent David Falk criticized the sports agent industry in which he still works in for an interview with me ten days ago.
Michelle Wie shot four over par Thursday at the Michelob Ultra Open. Doesn’t sound like a total breakdown... We’ll assume she’s not going to shoot about four under today to make the cut. So let’s say you are responsible for making the Michelle Wie decision at Nike, Sony and Omega. When do you say, “We’re outta here.”

When Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank sold $76 million in stock in November, shares of Under Armour plummeted under the hypothesis that "if the CEO sells, something smells." It's interesting how Nike founder and chairman Phil Knight's selling of $1 billion worth of Nike...
When Kobe Bryant was accused of sexual assault almost five years ago, the pitchman in Bryant fell off the face of the earth. Coke, which was using him for Sprite, shelved his ads and replaced him with Lebron James when his contract expired. McDonald's didn't renew him, neither did Nutella and Spalding.
Kentucky Derby winner Big Brown was purchased in 2007 by Paul Pompa Jr. in April 2007 for $190,000. Later in the year, Pompa sold 75 percent of the horse to Michael Iavarone and Richard Schiavo of International Equine Acquisitions Holdings for $2.5 million.

Some people say Michael Lewis’ book “Moneyball” changed the way general managers think about baseball. Well, Lewis has probably done it again – this time in football – with his book “The Blind Side.” And this weekend’s NFL Draft could have proven exactly that.

He also has a big endorsement deal with Nike -- which today is re-releasing Steve Nash's Trash Talk shoe in limited quantities.
Former University of Tennessee standout and WNBA top draft pick Candace Parker has signed her first two endorsement deals, CNBC has learned.
Shoes made from old tires, fleeces made from recycled plastic and organic cotton shirts -- they’re all part of an eco-friendly fashion movement that is gaining momentum.
So many sports fans were shocked last night to find out that Tiger Woods had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. And that left me with trying to figure out who was the big financial loser in all of this.
So Tiger Woods didn't win the Masters, but at least Nike did. With Trevor Immelman coming in first, Woods coming in second and Stewart Cink finishing in third, the Swoosh took the top three spots this weekend and dominated the CBS broadcast.
In the cross training war between Nike and Under Armour, I gave the early edge to Nike. Why? Well, I liked Nike's commercial a little bit better and I thought that Under Armour's decision to run their spot during the Super Bowl was the wrong one.
Cheryl Miller was before her time. Rebecca Lobo was too tall. Lisa Leslie was missing that flash.
