It's not the agents responsibility to to make sure the player is following through with his obligations after the player has been told about the parameters of his contract. This is an employment contract and it is the employee's responsibility to know what is in his contract. You here all the time players say "it's a business". Well, dumbass, act like it's a business and take care of your side of the business.
When the agent is set to receive $60k dollars for said workouts, he should be emailing, texting and checking with his client on a daily basis to ensure that said client is participating.
If the agent in question can prove that he did so, the player is at fault. If he can't, the agent is at fault.
You don't seem to understand the fact that the agent is employed by the player, not the other way around.
