Lebrun chimes in too:
"To me, what's troubling is that a decision with such huge ramifications took place in two days with such a small group," said one veteran player agent, requesting anonymity. "How can that small group make such a big decision? That's the concern, regardless of whether you're an advocate of Kelly or not."
Said another agent: "I'm dumbfounded by the immediacy of this decision. You'd think this should be deliberated for more than 10 hours. I would have thought something as significant as this would have involved more discussion among more players. I just think the general union populace should have had more of a say in this."
By the time the players have their team meetings in two weeks, the agents will have their ducks in a row. Now they just have to find someone credible to take the job over. My guess is that they try to put their own guy in there, and clear the decks of everyone who was involved in this.
Anyone know when a new executive committee is chosen?
