Welcome back to THE sports law podcast. Dan Lust is joined by Landis Barber (@LandisBarber) to bring you all the latest at the intersection of sports and the law.

It appears that Dan Snyder is looking to sell the Commander. (2:40) Snyder has hired Bank of America Securities to explore potential transactions. Snyder does own 100% of the team after he bought out the minority owners in 2021. The Commanders are currently valued at $5.6B. Is Jeff Bezos interested in buying the team?

MLB's motion to dismiss was granted in the recent anti-trust lawsuit. (8:30) After 40 minor league teams were eliminated, four filed an action against MLB for violation of anti-trust law. Court ruled that until the Supreme Court or Congress overrules the antitrust exemption currently provided to MLB, then there is nothing the courts can do. Jim Quinn was on a previous episode discussing this case and he agreed this is the result that would occur in the lower courts. Quinn has his eyes set on SCOTUS to overturn the antitrust exemption.

Kyrie is in the news for posting on Twitter a link to a film that is anti-Semitic. (11:40) Kyrie has refused to apologize for posting the link. Since the recording of this episode, the Nets have suspended Kyrie for his failure to disavow antisemitism.

Incident occurred after the Michigan State and Michigan football game. (20:13) Michigan player ends up being attacked by a number of Michigan State players in the tunnel going to their locker rooms. There are investigations underway, and four Michigan State players have been suspended.

Connor Orr and Tom Horgan of Orr, Horgan & Flentje, who is a sponsor of our podcast, join the podcast to discuss their law firm. (28:16) OHF is a firm that practices in Nebraska. Connor and Tom talk about their legal careers and why they decided to start their own firm. They also discuss college collectives and the future impact of NIL in college sports.

Our resident DA Matt Tympanick (@TympanickLaw) joins to help break down Dan Snyder being criminally investigated. (57:40) Allegations were made that the Commanders were keeping two sets of books and underreporting ticket revenues. Snyder is now being investigation for the alleged fraud and corruption.
