View Full Version : Rosenhaus a hero? Well, not exactly

I'm gonna let this sit here for awhile since many of Drew's clients are Dolphins, so it's related to this section :tongue:. This is a follow-up of the "hero" Drew Rosenhaus saving that four year old in Orlando. Now I hate to do this without quoting my source, but I don't want to endanger two jobs here as well as my interests. As some of you may know, there have been people fired as a result of their postings on FH. If you dont know about it, we'll talk about it at another time....

Anyways my acquaintance has a relative in his immediate family that was at the scene of the kid drowning, in fact she was probably within 15-20 feet of the scene. Supposedly Drew went into the water to save the kid....that's a negative. Supposedly Drew did CPR on this kid for two minutes...actually that's kinda a negative. While everyone stood around freaking out because they didn't know CPR, Drew banged on the kids chest for a few seconds. There was also another account I heard of tonight that Drew was doing the CPR wrong and luckily a lifeguard arrived to get Drew off of the kid. (Four year olds are not supposed to have the same CPR as an adult FYI, at least that is what I recall from my CPR training a few years back). The cop that arrived from the Orange County Sheriff's Office (if not them then Orlando PD) arrived after the boy was revived and Drew informed the officer that it was him that revived the child, so he got credit for it.

In the end it's great that the kid survived, that's the most important thing. At least he tried to do something (I think)

Now lastly, here is the kicker to this whole story. The source informed my acquaintance that it was not other bystanders that reported on Drew saving the kid, but DREW HIMSELF who called ESPN and local media outlets. Somehow that does not surprise me.

I trust this source and I hope you will trust me on this one. Sorry to be so general, I don't want to get people in trouble.

Exactly. I think he did some good, not much, but some none the less. and he had to let the world no it. and thats not just a figure of speech, i mean he HAD TO LET THE WORLD KNOW IT. I bet the man called newspapers in China.

You know, after hearing those clips and the way he handled the situation after the fact. I feel bad for ever defending him. My appologies to the Fin fan that I almost ripped into for calling him a "rat" after, what I thought was a noble effort. Actually I did rip into him and then later deleted my post as I thought it was overboard.

Anyway, I can't remember who I was about to rip into, but to that Fin fan I appologize. I can't believe someone that supposedly saved a childs life would refer to themselves in the third person...EVER. That just amazes me on top of the fact that he hopes it helps in his negotiations with a team with one of his clients!

I am sold! Drew is many words I can't mention on these forums. :fire:

Im glad the kid survived and he tried to do something, but at the same time you can kill a kid if you try to give him adult CPR, that is why youre not supposed to administer CPR the same to kids. At least the kid lived, but Drew is a piece of garbage for making this crap up. I know he has some PR issues with fans and teams, and I think he does his job well despite what any of us or our team thinks. But this is very unnecesarry and he should apologize.

but at the same time you can kill a kid if you try to give him adult CPR, that is why youre not supposed to administer CPR the same to kids.

Ok, not to pass judgement on Rosenhaus one way or another.. I wasn't there, so I can't. But regarding this statement, I'd just like to comment that:

a. you can kill an adult giving them adult CPR. It's very easy to break a rib or something doing CPR, which can in turn puncture a lung or have other devestating effects. This is, of course, assuming that the person's heart would have started up again on it's own somehow without the intervention, which leads to:

b. if someone, kid or adult, is not breathing and has no pulse, they really have nothing to lose from improperly performed CPR. It only takes a VERY small amount of time without blood flowing to the brain, and you're dead (or at least brain damaged if you are later revived). Bad CPR is better than nothing if CPR is indicated at all.

Not to mention that the majority of the time if CPR is peformed right a rib is broken.

The sad thing is many people have been sued for saving someones life through CPR only to get reawrded with a law suit.

Whatever is true, Rosenhaus is getting bashed for atleast helping saving a kids life? Fans may not like how he operates his business, which he's the best at BTW, the guy played a role in saving a kids life, so let's bash him for that? Doing CPR on someone is very stressful and if you don't know it the person is almost always dead, and actually if you talk to alot of EMT's even when you do know CPR the person has a good chance of not living. When other people are put in a similar situation, I see first hand how they act, and most of the time they choke up and just can't do it because of the pressure. I believe the Rosenhaus story, and giving CPR to a young child is very difficult, and i'm gonna give credit to where credit is due, Rosenhaus saved/helped in saving a kids life, but because most people are fans of players, who Rosenhaus represents, they are soo blinded by the fact that he gets the best deals for his players, and when an unfair deal is in place like the TO deal, than he tries to get something better for his players, but because of that his help in saving a life is not given credit? I watched the ESPN piece of Rosenhaus and it makes sense, if players can be cut, than why can't they be given raises if they out-perform there contract? Atleast give the guy credit for helping save a kids life, whether you like the way he represents his clients, which he does better than anyother agent.

No worries on your post. The police officer who arrived at the scene was quoted tonight on ESPN as saying Rosenhaus was already calling media outlets to let them know of his bravery while the ER was still trying to figure out what happened. Apparently Drew was too busy recanting his tails of how angry the sea was on the phone to answer the police.

I'm gonna let this sit here for awhile since many of Drew's clients are Dolphins, so it's related to this section :tongue:. This is a follow-up of the "hero" Drew Rosenhaus saving that four year old in Orlando. Now I hate to do this without quoting my source, but I don't want to endanger two jobs here as well as my interests. As some of you may know, there have been people fired as a result of their postings on FH. If you dont know about it, we'll talk about it at another time....

Anyways my acquaintance has a relative in his immediate family that was at the scene of the kid drowning, in fact she was probably within 15-20 feet of the scene. Supposedly Drew went into the water to save the kid....that's a negative. Supposedly Drew did CPR on this kid for two minutes...actually that's kinda a negative. While everyone stood around freaking out because they didn't know CPR, Drew banged on the kids chest for a few seconds. There was also another account I heard of tonight that Drew was doing the CPR wrong and luckily a lifeguard arrived to get Drew off of the kid. (Four year olds are not supposed to have the same CPR as an adult FYI, at least that is what I recall from my CPR training a few years back). The cop that arrived from the Orange County Sheriff's Office (if not them then Orlando PD) arrived after the boy was revived and Drew informed the officer that it was him that revived the child, so he got credit for it.

In the end it's great that the kid survived, that's the most important thing. At least he tried to do something (I think)

Now lastly, here is the kicker to this whole story. The source informed my acquaintance that it was not other bystanders that reported on Drew saving the kid, but DREW HIMSELF who called ESPN and local media outlets. Somehow that does not surprise me.

I trust this source and I hope you will trust me on this one. Sorry to be so general, I don't want to get people in trouble.

HEre are some Audio clips of Drew being interviewed by WFTV in Orlando, have a listen:

DISCLAIMER: I was not there, this is just what I have heard from a source literally very close to the situation.

No offense, but this is the sort of situation which should be left alone. I'd also like to point out, why should I trust your source? It could be as personally biased as Rosenhaus's ......... Your source could literally hate Drew's guts to death and in an attempt to take away from whatever deed he did perform he/she decided to say what they did to you......

Contrary to a conspiracy theorized Drew PR job, the man doesn't give a hoot about what ya'll think of him.......... I tend to think he would never go out of his way in order to change public opinion of him.

I don't care if you trust my source or not. When the story gets old maybe I'll shed more light on it. I'm just glad the kid survived, but I hate when people take full credit for something they didn't entirely do. I've told some of the staff members more info then I told here and they won't be shedding any additional light on it here for now, they will tell you that I am not full of it. I don't waste my time making up BS like this, otherwise I wouldn't be around here too much longer.

I'm glad you posted it, I was actually struggling with having to somewhat alter my view of the guy.

Somehow this all makes much more sense now, I only hope others who were there will get disgusted at the way he's using this and come forward with the truth.

Breaking News!!!!

I have a source who went to college with a guy who is roomate's with another guy's second cousin who delivers pizza with a guy who was at the scene and let me tell you - Drew really did save that kids life!

The staffers on this site know my source, too, and they will tell you it is not BS! Drew's story is completely true and my source is completely credible!

Anyone picking up the sarcasm?

My point is - without a real source there is no reason to believe Drew' story isn't true. ESPN deemed it credible enough to air it. I believe their fact checking over some unamed "source". Ok ok ok - so Drew is being a big showoff about it, but hey, he is an agent and it doesn't mean it didn't happen.

In reality, Drew probably really did save that kid's life. The parents certainly haven't indicated that he's making it up. Nor has anyone else that was there - at least not through a credible news medium. I'm very suprised at how easily everyone believes the claims that are posted on this forum with absolutely no credible proof!

(An "unamed source" is not credible proof sorry!)

You are fast on your way to becoming the site's resident Cranky Skeptic. :) I've seen you go down this path with other posts, and I definitely can see your point. However, I think you must consider the source here. TT has more of a personal credibility stake here than some random poster. I am positive he wouldn't post something if he didn't think it would hold up.

You're probably right - he's not a one post wonder or anything. I just get irritated when people take things at face value like that and assume its all true.

I've moved this to the lounge, just because it's not pertinent to the Dolphins and it's stuck around here too long.

I stand by what I put. If you don't believe me, that's fine. Take my opinion for what it's worth. We are NOT ProFootballTalk here, where we make up half our stories and call people "turds". I doubt that people will come forward and go out of their way to say that he didn't do what he said he did, basically because I don't think they care too much. So I don't know if another opinion will come out of the woodwork to rip Rosenhaus. The boy survived, and that's all that matters.

A radio station in Orlando had the same source as me and ran with it. I will shed more light on this when the story is old news.

Shed more light on it now if you have more info please. Why hold back? That makes it sound like you are making it up. It will be no different now vs a month from now when nobody cares anymore so just come with it.

I think....

Dragging him thru the mud like this after all of the "mainstream" news accounts agree it was a noble effort.... is downright shameful.

He did a good deed.

If another "lifeguard" showed up and helped...Drew by all accounts atleast tried to save an innocent child's life.

He should be applauded...not "demonized".

Not to mention that the majority of the time if CPR is peformed right a rib is broken.

The sad thing is many people have been sued for saving someones life through CPR only to get reawrded with a law suit.


Yep, it's happened to me twice.

Martel

I gotta say, no disrespect TT, but this is a weird thing to post. One, DREW doesn't even say he went into the water. He says he walked up on a kid and no one was doing anything so he tried to give him CPR, and admitted he didn't know what he was doing.

So your friend was there AND knows that HE called ESPN. Was your friend at his house too? Was he calling ESPN from the pool?

Also those news clips are just that...news clips. A reporter was asking him about the incident and he seemed genuine when he was telling the story. It's not like he was bragging at a BBQ or something, they were doing a story on it. Drew was being Drew, but think the original post is kinda outta line. What's the point of posting it?

I guess since this is out of the limelight now...

A co-worker of mine's sister was the woman who called 911 (in fact the audio of her call could be heard on a few news networks). She's an employee at poolside at the Grand Floridian. So she saw the whole thing. She saw Drew pound on the kid's chest until a lifeguard took over. And then he called all the media outlets and said himself that he worked on the kid for two minutes and successfully revived him. Yes he was seen and heared calling from the pool. The cop arrived after this stuff happened, and Drew informed him that he revived the boy. So he gave him credit rather than the lifeguard. The reason why the lifeguard wasnt there first is because there are a few areas that the lifeguards must cover and the nearest lifeguard was at another swim site a lot farther away from the incident. The employee paged the lifeguard AND called 911.

"The kid brought his brother out, and Drew was able to see what was going on," Torres said. "There was a lifeguard on duty, but Drew got to him before the lifeguard."

I saw a report on TV here that Drew pulled the kid out of the water, which is why I refuted that claim in my original post.

Hope that clears up any speculation. WQTM Orlando (740 The Team) refuted Drew's claims going off the exact source that I had.

I definitely didn't think you were making stuff up. I just thought that this was a biased post against the guy, with a pretty negative spin on what turned out to be a good situation. Anyway, Drew can go back to being a super agent by day, beach savior by weekend!!

Sounds like a TV pilot Drew!! I see big $$$$$$$$$$$$!!!
