Agents Blamed in Contract Disputes/Controversies

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...-2004May1.html

Quote:
The NFL's offseason has been filled with controversies over players' contracts, and some of the sport's top officials say they blame the players' agents......Now the leaders of the NFL Players Association say they are prepared to do something about it.......

Union chief Gene Upshaw said he believes that the agents in the high-profile disputes involving Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens, Washington Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington and Cleveland Browns wide receiver Dennis Northcutt made mistakes. Upshaw said he expects some or all of those cases to be examined closely by the union's agent disciplinary committee and sanctions possibly imposed.

It's about time someone took some action. I'm glad it's the players union doing it. The players need to look long and hard at their agents and if the agent is screwing them out of millions because of stupid mistakes (missing a deadline/not reading the contract before signing it) then the player needs to fire their ass and suit their asses off till they start paying attention or don't have any players coming their way. I sure hope we get everything worked out with Lavar though. We don't need any distractions going into the new season and we sure don't want to lose Lavar over this!!!

I wonder if Kellen Winslow II is having second thoughts regarding his choice of agents?

Probably not yet, his huge ego is probably blocking his view of things

Agents today think that they have to be in the spotlight to appeal to clients. It is not a coincidince that a football fan today knows what the Roeshauses and Postons look like, AND that all of this contract bullshit is going down. These guys are wannabees and players should not trust people like that.

I doubt it because I am sure he will get a huge payday.

The Postons are idiots and deserved to have sanctions placed on them.
