Could be way off, but that's just how he always carries himself, IMO.
Understand the impression but don't believe Chia is condescending. He simply isn't comfortable with the public relations aspect of the job & dealing with the media. Speaking in public isn't his thing. Certainly he didn't care for Felger's antics, but what athlete/team rep does? If anything, I think Chia's a bit shy, even for a former agent.

Cam seems to enjoy the banter, reveals nothing, and can handle F&M with Sea Bass aplomb.
