As a marketing representative for a large, reputable and honorable sports agency, I am sickened by the way the media have assisted in the degradation of all sports agents. Robert Troy Caron may in fact be a "blood-sucking parasite" (as quoted by USC Coach John Robinson), but believe it or not, there really are some intelligent, hard-working professionals in the business. Contrary to the media's image of agents, we really do provide a valuable service by preparing our young clients for the personal and professional challenges they will face before, during and long after their playing days are over.
