"We live at a fascinating time in sports history. At the professional level, virtually every game has become a multi-faceted event that features an assortment of fan engagement opportunities. Broadcasts provide a wider range of content and access than ever. Social media reaches corners of the sports world that were unimaginable a few years ago. Analysis of the industry has grown more sophisticated than ever.

"I look forward to the monthly columns by Rick and Norm, as they always provide thought-provoking commentary surrounding topics we all face in this business. Having a collection of their work in a single book makes this a must-have for any reader."—John Swofford, Commissioner, ACC
