How Stupid are Sports Agents?

Judging by the quotes from the anonymous agent in Tim Brown's latest column, pretty freaking stupid:

 

“It’s beyond odd,” said one high-profile agent who’s been crying collusion for two months. “You can put together a pretty impressive team with the guys who are still out there.”

Sure. Collusion. That has to be it. It has NOTHING to do with the economy. Apparently sports agents don't read the news. If they did, they would know that a bunch of major companies announced tens of thousands of new layoffs today on top of all the other hundreds of thousands of layoffs over the last few months. They would know the stock market has lost 40% of its value over the last 6 months.

 

“Teams are trying to create a system where players are fearful of free agency,” the agent said. “They’re trying to get players to take the bad deal early.”

Sure. It's all a big conspiracy by the teams. It has nothing to do with the economy. Additionally, the conspiracies behind the fake moon landing, Roswell, the JFK assassination, and the inside job behind 9/11 are also somehow interconnected to this. Am I forgetting anything? Oh yeah and the fluoride in our drinking water conspiracy to poison us all. That is also connected.

 

**Update: GDP fell by 5.5% last quarter, worst quarter since 1982.
