Lacrosse Gives Fans, Sponsors a Choice; Nike Reports (Podcast)

Scott Soshnick, Eben Novy-Williams and Michael Barr discuss a number of topics related to the business of sports, including the news that lacrosse star Paul Rabil, with backing from -- among others -- The Raine Group, is starting his own outdoor lacrosse league. Players in the six-club Premier Lacrosse League will be full-time employees, get health insurance and equity. The PLL already has agreements with many players from Team USA and Canada. Also discussed are Nike’s earnings, which impressed Wall Street but had little room for upside with the stock trading near record levels. Also talked about is the Army-Oklahoma football game, which went to overtime and was only available via pay-per-view. Hosts: Scott Soshnick, Eben Novy-Williams and Michael Barr Producer: Madena Parwana
