They do that to players, not to agents. Most agents have been around for 10-20 years, tell them a few lies and you go on their poo list. Agents have more than a few people helping them or employed. Agents have more freedom than team employees too. It happens, trust me. Honestly the best relationship you want in the league is be on great terms with drew rosenhaus. If a team tells him a bunch of lies, he could blacklist his clients form signing with them. Agents many times are the "unnamed source" btw..
