Dentist? Jerry Argovitz has worn many hats in his remarkable
life, both inside and outside of the world of sports. As a
player agent representing and advising some of the biggest
names in the game, Argovitz challenged the NFL both at the
negotiating table and in the courtroom, earning a reputation
as one of the most powerful men in professional sports. He
successfully negotiated the first million dollar guaranteed
contract in NFL history, wrote the language for
career-ending insurance policy underwriting for Lloyds of
London, and brokered the deal that brought Heisman
Trophyâ€“winner Herschel Walker to the upstart USFL as a
junior, which opened the floodgates for all underclassmen to
As the owner of the Houston Gamblers of the USFL, Argovitz
helped to implement several rules which were subsequently
adopted by the NFL, and served as a principal figure in a
lawsuit against the NFL that proved the league was guilty of
Sherman Antitrust violations. Now, Argovitz has a plan to
reform the corrupt world of college sports, a plan he will
share in this eye-opening book.
