"Multiple agents" being deceived, misled, strung along and having their clients' time and maybe options wasted? That's sure a way to make friends and influence desirable free agents..going forward. Say what you will about Ireland and some crack whore's son, and of course you are justified to say a lot, but getting the reputation among agents of hot prospects that "you best beware, he'll jerk you around so explore alternatives first if you can" surely trumps the Ireland "dialogue."
ANNOUNCING a new FH smiley. Use it judiciously and selectively as to not diminish its impact!
