Re: What's up with these players blaming agents for falling in the draft?
May be that the agents tell the players that they will get them drafted in "x" range if they hire them as agents. If that doesn't happen the player has every right to be upset. Depending on how far the slide is, we are talking about a very significant difference in contract. Agents to me are like outside salesmen in most industries. They are pedaling a widget that isn't that far removed from being basically the same as the competitors widget, so they have to be the difference in what widget the customer buys. Same with agents. They have to be the ones who convince you to take their guy, and if they cant, they aren't doing their job.
