The agent is getting paid to do this. It's not like he's doing this out of the goodness of his heart. If his client has a clause that could cost him $2M, your agent sure as shit better tell his client to do it. What, do you think that every football player has a Microsoft Outlook Calendar and loads into it that 3 years from today, you have to make sure to attend a workout?
Do you hire an accountant to do your taxes? Or a financial planner? Is it your job to micromanage those people? Or do you think that when you pay those people money, it's their responsibility to take care of you?
