That is especially worse if his agent had power of attorney.
This agent has how many players that he is responsible for? If the player doesn't ask a direct question reguarding this where the agent would look up that information then it is not the agents fault.
I would imagine that it would be difficult to keep those contracts straight off the top of your head.
