As the coverage of sports business continues to gain notice in the media, the likes of analysts and reporters such as Eric Fisher of the Sports Business Journal, Chris Isidore of CNN/Money, Sarah Talalay of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, and Tim Lemke of the Washington Times, have gained more notority when it comes to the average sports fan.
But, more than anyone, it may arguably be Darren Rovell at CNBC that brings more attention to sports outside the lines in the media.
Given Rovell’s broad background in sports business, we decided to do something unprecedented on the Business of Sports Network: have an interview span all of our sites.
Today, we provide the football segment of our multi-part interview on The Biz of Football, with follow-up Q&As on The Biz of Baseball and The Biz of Basketball to follow.
Topics for this football interview include impacts to the NFL from the Michael Vick controversy, views on the NFL Network, whether the owners will opt out of the revenue sharing system in 2008, views on the NFL in Europe, and whether the recent flurry of controversial off-the-field events with players have an impact in the overall with the NFL.
