Book Description: The world has been fascinated by the world of sports since ancient times. In recent decades escalating player salaries, owner demands for new stadiums and old teams' moves to new cities have made us more aware of the business of sports. Now, in the last several years, the general population has been exposed to the law of sports. While designed to teach serious law students about sports law, Weiler and Roberts Text, Cases and Problems on the Law of Sports, Second Edition remains a fan-friendly book. In fact, Professor Weiler is the author of the widely-praised Leveling the Playing Field: How the Law Can Make Sports Better for Fans (Harvard University Press, 2000). So, while addressing the interesting and complex legal issues, the authors remain sports fans. This is clear on every page of the book! The 2001 Supplement also covers the sports product market, franchise free agency, stadium subsidies, and the legal and economic treatment of sports events on the Internet and on television. Weiler and Roberts Text, Cases and Problems on the Law of Sports, Second Edition is a must have for anyone wanting to understand the complex and exciting area of the law, and the 2001 Supplement makes that book fully up-to-date.
