Doing so allows them to focus on their job, whether it's as a sports, music or movie star.
From what's been released publicly to date, it appears that the agent failed his client.
That is a really good point. It would seem that in the general business context reminding him about the provision would be good client service but in the context of an agent representing a player/talent there is an expectation of that.
