I have taught a seminar in sports law for approximately twenty years. The course has always included an exercise concerning the negotiation of a professional player contract. At one time, I used the baseball salary arbitration exercise that used to be included in previous editions of Ray Yasser's casebook. The negotiation exercise otherwise always has involved the representation of professional basketball players. I use basketball primarily because it is my favorite sport. I have been tempted to try baseball or football, but over time, familiarity with the exercise has created resistance to change.
