    Article on Drew Rosenhaus, our favorite agent

    http://cfserv.dickinson.edu/dickinso...etail.cfm?1083


    This article must be read, just so we have a better understanding of how much a scumbag Drew really is. Makes me hate him even more. I love the last paragraph of the article.


    But those are not the opinions that matter most to the Shark. Rosenhaus believes that in a league where contracts can be cancelled by teams at anytime without any compensation to the player, he is an ally to those in need. He compares himself to Conan the Barbarian: "He could take on 30 guys. He's relentless, fearless, brave, but a good guy who defends the weak." Most people don't realize that these millionaire athletes are just damsels in distress, with Rosenhaus there to sweep them off their feet.

    I don't want to read the article, the paragraph you quoted is enough to tell me that it written by a naive and ignorant fan boy. I wonder how many people would survive a bar fight with these pansy damsels?

    The last paragraph probably isn't an opinion by the young writer, more of an opinion of Drew of himself. the writer may be a fan, but is probably just regurgitating info in his article.

    first it has been stated by the writers/developers (for lack of a better term) jerry mcquire was patterned after leigh steinberg.

    secondly if i was a player i would want the best and at this point it is clear he is...

    Brett Farve doesn't want him.

    How hard is it to tell players to hold out? He's not helping them. He might get them a bigger paycheck this time, but he's hurting their careers. I would, as a coach/owner, be more concerned with holdout history than character issues.

    That's the difference, perspective. Owner's/coaches and even other agents have serious issues from Drew because he's such a sleazeball. People like Drew do hurt their respective sports. Fortunately, the NFL is such a strong institution, that it can survive tactics by Drew and his clients. But look at other sports: hockey was ruined by skyrocketing salaries, and who was behind that: stupid agents. baseball is a joke now because of inflated salaries. Basketball is approaching the same plateau.

    Drew is a business man.. plain and simple.. and he does his job great. The man has excellence public relation and personal selling skills because he has awesome relationships with most of the NFL coaches. He gets his players top dollar and that is what an agent is suppose to do. Compared to other agents i think he tries to get his players IN mini-camp/training camp unlike many others.
