Top 100 #sportslaw Twitter Accounts for 2020 Part 2

December 31, 2019

Our Top #sportslaw Twitter Picks #41 – 100

The following accounts received one nomination each from the total 174 nominees.  While it was hard to make the cut, I felt these accounts best met the following criteria: primarily (if not exclusively) sports law-oriented, originality, level of activity, and coverage areas.  I tried to look for diversity (in both perspective and subject matter) and felt these accounts canvas the globe to reflect some of the very best #sportslaw Twitter has to offer.

While you’re looking at new Twitter follows for the New Year, take a few minutes to check out and follow our two retired elite football contributors to Advocacy for Fairness in Sports.

Father, husband, former NFL player/coach, here to share perspective. Don’t care if you disagree. NOT here for validation, don’t need it. (Irv is a 3-year USFL veteran, 12-year NFL veteran, and coached in the NFL for 10 years.  He has some serious wisdom to share along with some first-class wit.)
@ReeseClarett13 Maurice Clarett
Entrepreneur- “Don’t wait on your luck, create it.” (In high school Maurice was a name known throughout the nation winning USA Today’s national player of the year and a Parade All-American. He was the first true freshman to start at tailback at Ohio State University and finished with 1237 yards, 18 touchdowns, and a National Championship ring.  After that season he fell into a spiral of poor decisions that cost him his football career and ultimately led to 3 1/2 years in prison. It was there that he began to focus and turn his life around.  He works to share that it’s never too late to change the direction of your life.)

Enjoy, and Happy New Year!
