I think once the contract is negotiated, the client is fully aware of what is in the contract and it's then up to the client to, yah know, fulfill the obligations of the contract so as to get, yah know, paid.
If you believe Brown, he was talking regularly to his agent and his agent knew he was going to workout on his own.
As an agent, don't you think he should... y'know... understand the terms of the contract he negotiated? If he told Brown that was okay, don't you think he should check back to the contract to make sure he was right? And as an agent, do you really think the agent would be passive about telling Brown he needs to go to camp? The agent knew he was missing out on a hefty commission by Brown missing camp -- that in itself indicates to me that his agent was completely clueless and didn't realize that this camp was mandatory. An agent should know that... period.
