I stumbled upon a very interesting article over at the LA Weekly titled: Oh Shit! The Vultures Are Circling, which digs deeper into the Steinberg/Creative Artists Agency/Matt Leinart controversy.
If you are interested in the issue, the history of CAA, or want a good read, go check it out. Here is a little snippet from the post:
Iâ€™m told the phrase â€œsons of bitchesâ€ to describe CAA was floating around Steinbergâ€™s office after he received Leinartâ€™s letter of termination. Ironically, USC offensive tackle Winston Justice fired Steinberg late last week because he felt Steinberg was focusing all his time on his more famous Trojan client.
Is CAA the newest breed of super-agency? Will it become a bigger force in the field of Sports representation than IMG?
