ESPN is reporting today that the 10th pick in the draft, Michael Crabtree, is going to continue his hold out and according to his "adviser" cousin will consider sitting out the entire season if he does not get a "fair-market value" deal.
Now this seems stupid until we hit the moron ravine that is his agent.
Apparently the Niners have offered the traditional tenth pick contract, but his agent has refused the deal. Eugene Parker, Crabtree's agent, has threatened that Crabtree will sit out this season and re-enter the draft next year if he does not get the contract he desires.
Here's the problem though, Eugene Parker has not issued a counteroffer to the Niners. Michael Crabtree is basically holding out without giving any demands.
Instead of elaborating on all of this like an intelligent human being, I'm just going to let Nate's simplified idiot version of this dilemma showcase my feeling about this.
Crabtree's People: "GIVE ME WHAT I WANT!"
San Francisco 49ers: "OK. What do you want?"
Crabtree's People: "I DON'T KNOW, JUST GIVE IT TO ME!"
Michael, find new people to represent you. Otherwise I'm really looking forward to your debut in the UFL.
