Braves will no longer deal with Tellem

Can't really blame them for feeling that way but you might have to wonder if they're cutting their nose to spite their face.

I didn't read the article... but I can presume what happened and say that if Agents aren't going to be honest and forthright in their dealings, what really are you losing? Seems to me you'd be saving a lot of wasted time in negotiations that weren't really going to lead anywhere, you just didn't know it.

Good stuff... Although it sucks for any existing Brave who is represented by Tellem. I'd much prefer to team's make it public which agent(s) they have no use for so players know which agents are not going to be able to deal with certain teams. Much better than the rumors of certain teams ignoring Boras clients.

Arn Tellem screwed the Orioles over as well with Vlad Guerrero.

A serious question for the lawyers on here. How do these agents not run afoul of ethics reviews and even charges of Fruad in the way the negotiations are handled? I would think that an agent that completely makes up a offer would be guilty of fraud in the inducement of a contract. I know I am careful in my own business negotiations about what I say and how I say it, maybe I would get over on more people if I just acted like a sports agent?

If the agent is also a lawyer, then he has ethical requirements imposed on him by the bar of the state(s) in which he is licensed. It would be very easy for a party who felt that the lawyer had violated the ethical rules to file a complaint before the state bar.
