Um ... now that's just plain dumb ...

I do understand that but I also understand that players usually choose their agents and they prolly talk to their agent from time to time about their contract.

No. Many people actually think the players are driving negotiations while, in reality, it couldn't be further from the truth.

Every agent worth a crap makes sure that their client understands that anything whatsoever to do with contract negotiations will be handled by the agent ... before the agent even agrees to represent the player. Without this absolute trust the agent cannot do his, or her, job. The player is simply a spectator, especially in the case of a first major contract.
