Leigh Steinberg Speaks About His Troubled Past; Looks Forward To The Future
On October 24, football agent Leigh Steinberg appeared on an episode of Forbes SportsMoney on the YES Network. Video of the segment is embedded, below. Michael Ozanian of Forbes begins the piece by engaging in a discussion with Steinberg about addiction to alcohol and how difficult it is to be successful in business with the public knowing about those problems. Steinberg mentions that many of his clients, including Warren Moon, Troy Aikman, and Steve Young, reached out to help him during his struggles and continue to stay close. The discussion moves on to professional football in Los Angeles (with Steinberg putting forth his belief that there will definitely be a team in that market), future media rights deals, and a talk about tips for negotiating contracts.
