Save the dates: Josh Luchs, NFLPA at NY Law School this week

luchs Our good friend and budding sports mogul Elliot Solop, proprietor of The Sports Tomato, has been doing some great stuff at New York Law School. He got in touch recently to tell me about a couple of really interesting events this week that he thought I would be interested in, and would perhaps like to share with SportsAngle. Elliot was absolutely right, as I hope to attend both events, work permitting.

Here’s the information, after the jump:

NFL Players Association: “The NFL Lockout: How We Got Here and What Comes Next”
Tuesday, April 26, 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

George Atallah, NFLPA Assistant Executive Director of External Affairs, and an NFL player to be named later will discuss the state of the NFL during its first lockout in 20 years. The press release says: “Topics such as success of the game, the lockout and how the sides reached this point will be discussed. A full question-answer session will follow.”

As I have long wondered what effects a prospective extended lockout would have on not just football but American society on the whole, I think this sounds like a fascinating event. It’s being held at:

New York Law School
185 W. Broadway New York, NY 10013
Auditorium, A014

RSVP to 203.927.2485


Sports Illustrated “Confessions of an Agent” subject Josh Luchs to lecture at NYLS
Thursday, April 28, 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.

As the NFL Draft arrives, Josh Luchs — who cast new light on the ethical and moral dilemmas posed to prospective modern sports agents — will talk at New York Law School. Luchs represented Terrell Suggs, Adam Archuleta, Chris Mims and other prominent players.

I remember reading that SI article; it wasn’t a huge shock to hear that agents paid prospective clients, but it was nonetheless significant to hear it explicitly detailed. I’m very intrigued to hear what Mr. Luchs has to say.

New York Law School
185 W. Broadway New York, NY 10013

Room WA10



If you have any questions about either event, hit up Elliot on Twitter, or find him at The Sports Tomato.
