Rosenhaus Represents T.K.?

Your next question may be, “Who is T.K.?”  All the way back on January 2nd, 2006, I looked at how Drew Rosenhaus virtually answered every question posed to him at a Terrell Owens press conference with “next question.”  Burger King (and T.K. – The King) now looks to take advantage of the phrase that once […]

Social Networking to Win Good Press!

Today I would like to introduce to you an athlete who uses his MySpace page to reach out to his fans and further promote his charity affiliations. For an NFL rookie, he seems to know a little bit more about keeping a good image than many seasoned veterans. His name is Reggie Bush, and he […]

You Won’t Push Your Dad Down The Stairs…

After creating the “Social Networking” category on this website, I was wondering if I would ever have a 2nd post on the subject after this general post about Clients on Social Networking Sites.  Jeremy Barfield has finally given me a second post on the subject…although the story is terrible.  After pushing his dad (ex Toronto […]

Usually this blog will weekly highlight a player or group of players that have done something that would make an agent cringe.  This post examines the story of an agent, that should make anybody cringe.

Scotty Doesn’t Know?

I highly doubt that Scott Boras does not know the power that he wields in the Sports Agent business.

In July, […]
