OT: Rob Pelinka: 5th best agent in sports
He must be a damn good agent
missed that one
Casey's spouse, FWIW:
Cecil Newton is #1.
Rob Pelinka off topic? Especially with the specific call out on his Michigan years and photo in Michigan uniform?
but it could have gone either way I guess
maybe I should have put a CC in front of it and discussed richrod's agent
Yay for being old.
What kind of commission you think he gets off that $297,000,000?
Maybe 10% at most, which is about $27,000,000 more than what I'm making right now.
4% is the standard agent's cut for pro sports contracts. Endorsement deals, OTOH, are more lucrative - up to 20% for the agent. This helps to explain why it's deemed so important for athletes to go to big markets, where they can "gain visibility".
....ever fall for this, but a co-worker and her baller husband met with agents and they offered a ton of extra services that would up the agents' take.
Don't want to manage your money? Don't want to pay your cable bill every month? Your agent will do that--for a fee. She said the list of services was ludicrous, but I suppose some players might go for it--pay the agent to do everything but wipe your butt.
did Cecil Newton fall? because keeping his son's eligibility while negotiating pay has to fall into a random X column that helps advance him past other agents
That was good.
Mark Bartelstein made the list as well. Honorable mention.
