Rosenhaus saves drowning boy

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/column...len&id=2111853

TAFKAS had this posted in the news wire and I thought it was worth devoting a thread to.

Hate the guy all you want for what he does as an agent, but today the guy is a hero.

My hat goes off to the guy.

Yup. Most definitely. I mean just because you're an asshole at your job doesn't mean you're not a stand up guy outside your job.

This is all I will say about politics, but I don't like Bush as a president HOWEVER he looks like he'd be a pretty cool guy just to hang out with.

I think it's also in the Parking Lot forum

But anyway, there are several players around the league who think Rosenhaus is a great guy. And really all he's doing is his job. But yeah, hats off to him for stepping up when duty called

Re: Rosenhaus saves drowning boy

He must be doing something right for his clients, doesn't he represent the most players of all the agents in the league?

Re: Rosenhaus saves drowning boy

It's funny. Up here in Philly you should hear how the media is ripping Rosenhaus. I'm still waiting for the written articles to come out about this, but his comments after the drowning incident are absolutely sickening. I heard them on the way in to work this morning and the guy is just such an a$$.

I will give you that saving the boy's life was a great thing. No doubt about it, but you should have heard him talking to the media right after it happened. He actually used this incident to say that (and I'm paraphrasing here): maybe Philly will see that he's not a bad guy and give him some love.......even though the boy was from Chicago (yes, he actually said that), hopefully Philly will still want to give him and his client some love. He also described the scene as "mass hysteria" with the boy's parents in a state of shock......but he had the confidence in himself to know that he wouldn't fold under the pressure.

I know it's hard to imagine, but if you heard him, you might actually like him even less now than before he saved this boy. It was really funny.

I'll try to find a full transcript of what he said for you guys to understand just how bad it was.

Re: Rosenhaus saves drowning boy

He's definitely doing something right from the business side of it. We might not agree with his morals but he's good at what he does and apparently is a life saver. He's also a black belt. I was like WHAAA?!

Thanks for posting that, cause I was seriously respecting him more...

Re: Rosenhaus saves drowning boy

Okay, informal pole, who thinks this thing was staged?? I mean, I have not read one sentence about this, and I don't intend to because the media has a way of twisting things. . . .something for sure is rotten in Denmark! ( from a Tarantino flick). I just don't buy it! He has to be public enemy #1 right now in the most popular sport in the country ... and now this???

He pushed the kid into the water first...that's the part the mainstream media isn't reporting

Re: Rosenhaus saves drowning boy

TAFKAS, I think it would have to be a little more intricate of a plan than that.

He pushed the kid in the water first, AND he slipped the parents a few grand to look the other way.

Re: Rosenhaus saves drowning boy

This might sound wierd but i like him, he is doing his job better than anyone has ever done it and we have to respect that. I don't agree with holding out but i do respect him, he and 2 other people run the whole agency, no secretaries or anything, just them 3 and Drew handles most of the calls. He is unmarried and has a half a billion dollars worth of contracts this year. Well i will like him until he skrews the skins over, portis and taylor love us to much to hold out though and moss will learn to love us

Re: Rosenhaus saves drowning boy

I think he gets way too much heat. He works for his clients, his players don't have guns to their heads telling them they have to hold out, they choose to do so.

I think he gets too much heat and the players don't get enough blame in all this.

As for his comments after saving the kid, yeah I heard him on Rome today and there's no doubt he's still a loser, but hey, a little kid is alive today because of him, and that's all that should matter.

Re: Rosenhaus saves drowning boy

At least he's not like the Postons. Also, he at least probably READS the contracts of his players.

Ha, yup there is a reason players like walker, taylor, portis, owens, and boldin, have him as an agent.
