Why do so many of you have so a HUGE problem with the idea of paying an Agent?
#1 If you think you can do my job better than I can without:
A - my skills
B - my experience
C - my contacts
GO AHEAD & TRY I DARE YOU. I'll bet double your kids' signing bonus you will screw up his career... perhaps beyond repair but at least you'll have satisfied your inflated ego.
#2 If someone makes me $100 that I wouldn't have made myself & all I have to do is I pay him a tax deductible $5 for doing it, I will make that deal every second of every day of the year.
#3 If we're all so worthless & greedy than all the Major League Players who pay us millions of dollars to do aour jobs must be the biggest fools on the planet. After all, just look at what a great job Gary Sheffield & Curt Schilling did handling their own contracts. they left millions of easliy obtainable dollars on the table & in Sheffield's case srewed up the press coverage about as bad as humanly possible.
#4 Do you fill your own cavities, repair your own roof, litigate your own lawsuits, perform surgery on your relatives, spay your pets yourself etc. etc.
