One Thing that SUCKS about the Sports Agent Industry.

Jerrymaguire

NO job goes without it's short falls, the sports agent industry included.  One of the short falls is that you, as the agent, are expected to be loyal, but the client doesn't really have to be.  It's cool, it's the nature of the business, you either deal with it, or find something else to do.  

I was about to say what just happened yesterday, but I like my job and I don't wanna get fired.  Let's just say it really showed how shady this industry can be.  In this industry, players have just about all the leverage.  As an agent, you have to bust your ass for them, and they can just take a crap on you, with no repercussions.  

As an agent you'd you'd better bust your ass, otherwise you face potential negligence charges and a bad reputation in the industry.  If you get a bad reputation in this industry amongst players, you may as well find something else to do.  

A player, on the other hand can drop you like a bad habit with little notice, and sign-on with somebody else, regardless of how much work (and money) you put into his career.  

But it's all good, I knew what I was getting into before I started in this industry.

OK, I'm done.  I just needed to vent.  Plus my daughter seems to not want me to get ANYTHING accomplished this weekend.  She's tugging on my laptop as I type.  

Gotta go, gotta go.
