Sports agent laws and doubleheaders

The Associated Press penned a piece stating sports agent laws are rarely being enforced. Rick Karcher, director of the Florida Coastal School of Law Center for Law and Sports program, added his thoughts at the end.

Inside Higher Ed tackles the question as to whether or not the girls and mens teams should switch time slots in scheduled doubleheaders.

A sports conference that always scheduled weekday basketball doubleheaders in which women’s teams played the first game — letting the men play in the later time slot — has altered the practice, after an anonymous sex discrimination complaint charged that this made the women’s games appear to be a “warm-up” act for the men’s games.

Now, hoping to avoid possible gender equity suits, other athletic conferences are considering similar scheduling changes.
