AB spoke recently with John Phillips, owner of the Breakthrough Sports Agency, about the fierce competition among aspiring football agents, and how that competition often contributes to unscrupulous agent behavior. “There’s motivation to cheat,” Phillips says, pointing to the one organization that he feels holds the greatest potential to effect change. “The NFLPA needs to regulate more and have more swift punishment. There needs to be a federal registration or licensing system such that, if you’re rogue and you’re a cheater, you know what’s coming and when it’s coming. As it stands, there’s really no fear of retribution.”
