"The Sports agents is similar to what?" They run the gamut from absolutely necessary to thievery. Most athletes don't know how to negotiate a contract, let alone for the sums today. They don't know how to invest large amounts of money or how to deal with the sports bureaucracy and team management. At best, agents handle negotiations, investments and advise players on league policies. At worst, players never see the large sums newspapers print. Sports leagues have players associations that have guidelines for what qualifies as an agent. The NFL and MLB players associations are probably the best. Olympic athletes also face several levels of bureaucracy from sports federations to the national and international Olympic organizations. Agents that specialize in this area may help. Sometimes families handle it themselves.
