NBPA ADVISORY GROUP TO HIT GOTHAM TODAY WITH TOUGH TALK
Published October 24, 1997
The NBPA "hopes to present a united front when its agents advisory committee meets" today in N.Y., according to ESPN's David Aldridge. Aldridge: "The committee contains most of the agents who were part of the unsuccessful decertification effort two years ago. But now most of those agents -- including David Falk, Arn Tellem, Mark Bartelstein, Bill Strickland -- are firmly in control of the union. They'll likely come out of the meeting talking about more exemptions for veterans, and decrying the league's contention that a third of its teams could lose money this season while a half dozen coaches received financial windfalls in the offseason" ("SportsCenter," 10/23).
