Daniel Toth's curator insight, September 12, 2013 8:43 PM

1. I learned that in the past players used to represent themselves instead of having an agent do it for them. Also, i learned that each state his its seperate laws when it comes to sports agents, and that these laws can be very strict and they carry heavy consequnces.

2.Some information I found interesting and educational was that athletes used to represent themselves or have their parent srepresent them, and that some proffesional sports teams would simply say that they "Don't deal with agents". Also, when Steinberg said the average player salary in the past was $30,000 I was very shocked.

3. I selected the article because I was intersted in what sport agents do, and tips on how to improve being a sport agent.

4. This information helps me in the sport management industry by giving me some tips and insight on how sports agents work, and how I could be a step ahead of other agents if I decide to take that route in my life.
