Fine with me. I didn't say they were dumb but rather, not completely informed.

The reason players have agents is that they are athletes in a legal world. So they need representation and they trust their representatives to look after their affairs so they can concentrate on THEIR OWN profession - which is not contract law.

That's smart, not dumb.

So is getting a 2nd opinion when they need significant medical attention.

However, I think it's also smart to weigh and validate everything one gets told esp. if ones short window to earn a big salary might be threatened or lost in a test of wills and ego which may or may not be in the players brief career window of opportunity.
