In any case, I asked what the holdout was all about....not how much time he actually missed because of it. No one's answered that. Blaming the agent is the epitome of lame....you could do that for any player who stages a work stoppage.
No one blamed Crabs' agent when he held out...they blamed Crabs. Why the double standard for Gore?
He obviously ended the holdout when he was assured by the front office that he would get a deal. So how does the logic work that Gore is not about getting paid?
Crabtree was holding out for money he thought he deserved. HE thought he deserved to be paid Heyward Bay money. I think I answered your question. Gore wanted security for the rest of his career. I think Gore has proven that he deserves the money. Crabtree has yet to show us he deserves first round money.
Why is blaming your agent lame? He is paid to secure your financial status for the rest of your life. I would argue that Gore went against Drew's advice.
