Eugene Parker: The King of Hold-outs?

Came across an interesting story on SI.com about Eugene Parker, the agent who represents the holdout Michael Crabtree and the not-yet-reported Richard Seymour.

That's his go-to #1 tool in his toolbag.
Parker is proving himself to be toxic as far as agents go. He makes Drew Rosenhaus and Scott Borus look good.

Im starting to think that its more Crabtree than the agent.

its 50/50 imo

There is speculation that parker promised crabtree to get drafted in the top 5 and if not to get paid like a top 5 guy.

That isnt happening.

Parker can get a deal done for the slot money (tyson jackson) but not more...

Its Crabtree. Parker will lose a lot of respect with the owners and lose future clients if Crabtree sits out the season.

Eugene Parker's new nickname.
This is on Crabtree not Parker. If Crabtree wanted to sing all he has to do is say so
F**K YOU PARKER!!!!!!!!
This on Craptree if he really wanted to play he would tell his agent to get the deal done.

At this point I fully agree that it is more Crabtree then Parker. Why would Parker want Crabtree to hold out and enter the draft next year that would cost both Parker and the player a lot of cash.

cosigned!
f**k the Bears
Numbers don't lie. Only one of Parker's last 18 1st rounders have reported to camp on time.
