Calling it a basic thing might be a little misguided. But even if it is basic to you, isnt that what the agent is for? To read, understand, and convey important pieces to the player? After all, these players arent exactly the best at reading contract law.
Edit: I heard Nick Wright on the radio say something about how if he found out that his salary was going to be cut by 2/3 because he missed the Xmas party that he would be upset, and that he didnt really read his entire 15 page contract from CBS. He got his agent to sign off on it and then he signed it. Not saying that is right or wrong, just that not alot of people fully understand contract law and how it works.
