The worst kept secret is that sports is big business. I've been a huge proponent of Sports Business coverage. It fascinates me. There are great people who cover this area of sports. One of them is an old friend named Maury Brown. In addition to being a contributor at Forbes, Maury is the founder and president of the Business of Sports Network, a consulting and analysis firm which includes the The Biz of Baseball. Through the Business of Sports Network, research and analysis has been done for several clubs in MLB and the NBA, as well as work at a pro league level.
