Conversations with agents always get overplayed even if negotiations actually are taking place. I think we imagine them locking themselves in a room for hours on end, when in reality it's much more likely that they have lunch meetings every now and then but touch base through email or phone messages. Posturing is the most important aspect of a negotiation. Neither side wants to seem too eager or they will lose leverage. That's why I find it odd than in the same comment in which Weber's agent says there is a stalemate he also continues beating the "but he wants to stay in Nashville" drum. The stalemate is probably one side testing the other more than an actual stalemate. Who will pick up the phone first?
