Today New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith decided to fire his agents at Select Sports. Players switch agents all the time but let’s look at how this story broke as a warm welcome to Geno from the New York media… 1. At 11:40AM Liz Mullen of Sports Business Journal reported that Smith was leaving his agents at Select Sports. 2. About an hour later, our old pals at the Daily News had this well researched and thoroughly sourced gem out. Apparently “SOURCES” have indicated that Smith thought that he should have been the number one overall pick and since he wasn’t, he fired his agents. 3. Since anonymous sources are highly credible and certainly not the scorned agents of Geno Smith, this has to be a truthful narrative right? Of course! Run away with it…   “There’s now even more reason to believe that Smith will have a hard time handling adversity in the NFL and dealing with the intense scrutiny and criticism of the New York media” - PFT   See, Geno. You aren’t allowed to fire your agents. Yes, everybody in the free world had you projected as a first round pick but you can’t be frustrated by being a 2nd round pick. You have to stay with your agents no matter what! Even if there are other more, complex issues that anonymous sources couldn’t dig up and you wanted to make sure you were comfortable with your management, you can’t fire them! All it takes is one quote attributed to nobody and now Geno Smith can’t handle negativity and certainly can’t handle those bright lights of New York…He’s been on the team for 4 days. Welcome to New York!
