My favorite part was the leading question: "What have you done for your client other than get him kicked off the team?"
What a joke the whole situation has become. I don't doubt that T.O. isn't hurt right now, but I'll bet his eyes welling up were more for the lost money and lost spotlight than for not being able to play with his teammates.
Hugh Douglas has now said that the now famous fight started because T.O. misinterpreted a conversation he had with another player. He was on 610 WIP when a caller told him that he thought T.O. was faking. Hugh stood up for T.O. on the ai, and was replaying the conversation with, I think, LJ Smith. T.O. walked in in the middle of the conversation, and he thought Hugh was badmouthing him. The fight ensued, and then T.O. challenged the locker room. I wish it was still the 80s, because Jerome Brown or Seth Joyner would have probably killed him.
I never really liked TO ever since the whole spike the ball on the star episode. I really don't want to see him again until he shows up wearing one of Michael Irvin's old furs with Dennis Rodman, Jose Canseco and Chyna on Surreal World 20.
Originally posted by BigSteveI have to say, Rosenhaus had an interesting performance. His repetitive claims about how great a person TO is and how he deserves a second chance really made me wonder how much of this stuff he actually believes (one would hope not a word of it).
I believe the coefficient of agent belief in their client, even in the face of the most outrageous behavior, varies in direct relation to the number of zeros on their commission checks.
Is there any meaningful difference in the job description of a high-profile sports agent, and that of a high-profile defense attorney?
I remember when Ryan Leaf came out of college, he was adminnistered a personality test. Typically, QB's have a certain personality type, and his results didn't line up with that type. Almost as if he was doomed from the get-go.
