SHARK-INFESTED WATERS: DREW ROSENHAUS ON "PRIMETIME LIVE"
Published January 22, 1998
DREW ROSENHAUS was profiled by ABC's Chris Wallace on "PrimeTime Live." Wallace: "This 31-year-old Miami sports agent has 45 players and has negotiated $300 million in contracts. And along the way he's made countless enemies." Rosenhaus: "I have zero respect for my competitors. I spit on them." Rosenhaus's competitors "claim he steals players from other agents, that he's more interested in making a quick buck than looking out for their long-term interests." DAVID WARE, the agent for BARRY SANDERS: "I believe if ballplayers were women that Drew Rosenhaus would be a pimp. ... His style seems to give the impression that we're all used car salesman and that the players are the used cars." Rosenhaus denied charges that he steals clients, but Dolphins President EDDIE JONES has banned him from the team's practice facility, saying Rosenhaus solicited players signed with other agents in the parking lot. Wallace noted that the NFLPA "received so many complaints about Rosenhaus that it toughened the regulations against stealing clients. It's known as the Drew Rule" ("PrimeTime Live," ABC, 1/21).
