You can entrust whomever you want with certain things, but you should still attempt to get a basic understanding of what is going on with your own life so you can try to avoid situations like this.
And calling it something basic is not misleading at all. This doesn't involve any complicated formulas or anything like that. Yeah, the contract might have been long and no fun to read but when it involves my money I'd have read every word and had it explained to me by my agent and the team if there was something I didn't understand.
How hard is it to understand: go to voluntary workouts...get 2 mil...Don't go...miss out on 2 mil.
I didnt say misleading. And again, what you might do could be totally different from what these athletes might do. they have never been accused of being the sharpest tool in the shed. Mr. Brown paid or pays his agent to look out for him when it comes to the contract. And his agent utterly failed the task. Is Mr. Brown at fault too? Sure, but he cant fire himself.
