While many sports fans don't like to acknowledge it, "big time" sports is "big time" business. Agents, bond referendums for new stadiums, corporate sponsorships, collective bargaining agreements and other topics have nothing to do with the sport itself but everything to do with the "Business of Sports." This isn't limited to Professional Sports, either. Parents can pay someone to help their child get an athletic scholarship, there are services to help college coaches find and recruit high school athletes, and don't forget the big business that is the Olympic games. Here you will find sites from and about sports agents, recruiting services, labor disputes/collective bargaining, corporate sponsorship and anything else on the Business of Sports.
