What’S A “Bunker”?: The Curious Case Of How Dustin Johnson Lost The 2010 Pga Championship And Why The Pga Must Revise The Now Infamous Local Rule At Whistling Straights, Brian Pelanda Jan 2011

What’S A “Bunker”?: The Curious Case Of How Dustin Johnson Lost The 2010 Pga Championship And Why The Pga Must Revise The Now Infamous Local Rule At Whistling Straights, Brian Pelanda

Brian Pelanda

This article discusses the problematic rule at the heart of the historic controversy that surrounded the 2010 PGA Championship and cost Dustin Johnson an opportunity to enter a playoff to contend for the tournament’s $1.35 million grand prize. I employ general principles of statutory construction to demonstrate how the unique Local Rule that the PGA implemented for the tournament at Whistling Straights impermissibly altered the definition of a sand bunker under the Official Rules of Golf. This issue is important not just because of how the problematic Local Rule harmed Dustin Johnson, but also because the PGA has ...

Final Offer Arbitration And Major League Baseball, Michael L. Miller Jan 2011

Final Offer Arbitration And Major League Baseball, Michael L. Miller

Master's Theses and Doctoral Dissertations

In 1974 Major League Baseball implemented the use of Final Offer Arbitration (FOA) to settle contract disputes for those players who were not yet eligible for free agency. Final Offer Arbitration was chosen because of its design to have parties reach settlement before the actual arbitration hearing. The purpose of this research is to evaluate if this system is the best method for settling contract disputes by analyzing whether Major League Baseball and its Players Association are using the system correctly, whether the system is fair and consistent, whether FOA has an effect on player performance, and also whether there ...


Street Agents: Third Party Involvement In College Football Recruiting, Brandon S. Foster Dec 2010

Street Agents: Third Party Involvement In College Football Recruiting, Brandon S. Foster

Scott Foster

In the ever changing landscape of college football recruiting, third parties, otherwise known as “Street Agents,” have become an emerging problem for college football coaches in their recruitment of prospective collegiate student-athletes. This is evidenced by the recent NCAA issues at the University of Oregon and Willie Lyles revolving around the recruitment of student-athletes during 7-on-7 summer football camps. In essence, high school football coaches are being surgically removed from the recruiting atmosphere because these third parties are developing the necessary relationships with the student-athletes and are able to direct them to the school of their choice because they host ...


Exploring Ethical Issues And Examples By Using Sport, Adam Epstein, Bridget Niland Dec 2010

Exploring Ethical Issues And Examples By Using Sport, Adam Epstein, Bridget Niland

Adam Epstein

The purpose of the paper is to offer suggestions to engage your students when arriving at the ethics portion of your business law, legal environment, or sports law course. With due respect given to the classic theory of ethics, the paper offers ethical issues in the context of sport at all levels, including youth sport, interscholastic, intercollegiate, professional and the Olympic Games. Unique topics include sport-related fraud, the use of performance-enhancing drugs and technology, raging parents, running up the score, and whether the myriad of NCAA bylaws genuinely reflect and promote fundamental principles of amateurism, sportsmanship, and education.
