Torts and Sports: Legal Liability in Professional and Amateur Athletics

By Raymond L. Yasser | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This book would not have been possible without the help and encouragement of a great number of people. I would like to thank our university administration for permitting me to teach sports law, and even granting my request for a sabbatical leave to pursue my scholarly interest in sports law. I also am deeply indebted to the students at The University of Tulsa College of Law who have taken my sports law classes down through the years. They have helped to educate me and to convince me of the value of this kind of book. Many of them also good- naturedly agreed to pursue research topics I assigned rather than ones of their choosing in order to assist in the preparation of the book. I greatly appreciate that. Without my student research assistants, Jim Lammendola, Mary Beth (M. B.) Vasco, Jeff Tefelske, B. Wingo, and Bruce Almquist, the book would not have been completed prior to the USFL- NFL merger. I especially want to thank Bruce Almquist for his help in the final preparation of the manuscript. Greenwood editor Lynn Taylor will forever occupy a warm place in my heart--she saw the merit in what I was doing and was a moving force in securing a publication contract. Greenwood Production Editor Michelle Aucoin did a first-rate job in moving the manuscript through the production and publication phases. I would also like to thank my colleagues who supported my research effort in sports law. And I owe a great deal to Kay Hawkins, who typed, retyped, and typed again my numerous drafts. She was indispensable.
