Of course he is not calling the shots. Do you think it was HIS idea to start the whole "brand" non-sense? Who could possibly come up with an idea as stupid as that on their own?
He is getting advice by people who are following what they believe to be successful "business" formula's, but they don't realize just how incredibly out of touch with modern day salary cap era sports management they are. Not only this, but they don't seem to understand how our new front office operates.
Just as the US has a policy to not negotiate with terrorists, our front office is smart enough to realize how important it is to likewise not negotiate with players holding out. All it does is encourage MORE holdouts.
So if we give in to these holdouts, we can only expect ten more players to follow suit as their agents wisely advice them to do the same.
