It is when you get into the clauses around injuries, etc. Defining the fault lines. Defining the behavioral clauses. And more. I agree on leverage, but I could see contracts extending beyond much more than a few pages to include that which is currently in the CBA. All it would take is for a team to drop a clause and the agent to overlook it. A little bit of wild west at the outset until both sides caught onto the game.
