    Carl Poston suspended by NFLPA!

    NFLPA suspends agent Poston indefinitely
    By John Clayton
    ESPN.com

    The NFL Players Association notified the NFL that agent Carl Poston has been suspended indefinitely.

    The league office officially informed 32 teams in a memo that Poston can't be involved in negotiations for any player, nor can he be an adviser on any deals. The term of the suspension was "until further notice." It was unclear why the union termed the suspension "until further notice" when the original length was two years.

    Poston filed suit in U.S. District Court in New York claiming his two-year suspension should be overturned. Congress was also inquiring about the NFLPA's agent certification process and how it related to Poston.

    An eight-member NFLPA disciplinary board recommended a suspension when it claimed Poston had been negligent in negotiating a contract for former Redskin LaVar Arrington. The union claimed Poston signed the contract without ensuring it had a $6.5 million bonus clause that had been agreed upon.

    Previous legal challenges of agent certification have been upheld at least two times in previous court cases. It is not known how the House of Representatives inquiry will affect the union's decision.

    Poston recently signed cornerback Ty Law to a five-year, $31 million contract with the Kansas City Chiefs.

    I never liked him anyway, or I guess I never liked any agent because thay are always so darn greedy, Hopefully he will never be an agent for one of our players again.

    Well, for someone who would not go to any teams because of money (Law), I think Poston did a good job finally getting things done for the guy. But, I wonder what he did anywys? Hmm.

    To get suspended? It says right in the article:

    An eight-member NFLPA disciplinary board recommended a suspension when it claimed Poston had been negligent in negotiating a contract for former Redskin LaVar Arrington. The union claimed Poston signed the contract without ensuring it had a $6.5 million bonus clause that had been agreed upon.

    Re: Carl Poston suspended by NFLPA!

    I first read this article when I woke up at 5 A.M. I did not attempt to reply to it at that time, because at first glance, I thought the title said "Carl Poston suspended by NAMBLA!"
    Now, I don't honestly think I have ever seen a picture of Carl Poston, but I am willing to bet he wouldn't qualify for membership in the North American Marlon Brando Look-Alike Association. At 5 A.M., NAMBLA could only mean one other thing, which I will not mention.

    Now you see why I try not to post early in the morning.

    BTW, wasn't Poston Pace's agent?

    Yeah, the Postons used to be Pace's agents back when we were going through the annual franchise-and-holdout routine. Eventually Pace fired them, and his new agents, McGuire and Smith, were able to get the contract extension worked out pretty quickly after that. Zygmunt claimed that the big holdup had been the Postons' hardline tactics and refusal to negotiate, so the front office had never gotten the opportunity to get their best offer on the table in the past.
