    He also represents Titans RT David Stewart and basketball player Erick Dampier. He was a co-agent, with a few others, for Randy Moss. His agent profile says he's negotiated 19 active NFL contracts, but doesn't list them.

    So what are we saying here, Bud's right?

    I sort of respet Adams for standing up and saying that Bus is the blame although I'm not exactly sure why

    "...but it’s kind of gotten a little bit ragged toward the [end],”

    Can't tell if this is exactly what he said because of the brackets around [end], but if it is, this is the single most telling thing Bud has said about the situation.

    Man this is just like some lame soap opera; a lot of yapping but nothing every really gets resolved.

    Cooks constant demands have inflamed the situation publicaly more than anything else. He has used the media to post demands consistently, and he has also tried to force the Titans hand several times into a trade by saying a deal was imminent, etc.

    I rarely agree with Adams, but on this one, I do. Bus Cook ONLY earns commission IF McNairs deal is rewritten. Do you REALLY think he has McNair's :kiss: best interests in mind or his own? :sad2:

    Bud is exactly right. But the Titans share some of the blame in this too. They basically tied their own hands by backloading Steve's contract several years ago. Everyone knew that $23 mill this year would never be paid, so the Titans forced their own hand.

    Steve also has some blame in this also. Who's running the show, Bus Cook or Steve McNair? The players let these agents run their affairs too much. Yes, it's thier job to get the best deal for their client, but how much money do these guys need? Steve's career is nearly over, he's going to fall on his face in Baltimore, get hurt or play poorly and Kyle Boller will be starting by mid-season. There's a sucker born every moment, and Baltimore is the sucker. What have they seen from Steve that makes them think he's a 12 mill per year QB?

    This is Eddie all over again.
