10. If the NFL doesn't put an end to Deion "Master D" Sanders' mentoring service, Percy "Master P" Miller has every right to demand reinstatement as a sports agent.

In my book, Master P did a better job representing Ricky Williams than Master D did advising Michael Crabtree, Dez Bryant, Pacman Jones, Tank Johnson and Deangelo Hall.

Not since Jim Jones led a flock of followers to Guyana has one religious con man been responsible for simultaneously misleading so many young people. Is there no limit to Deion's foolishness?

Super agent Eugene Parker is taking most of the heat for Crabtree's pointless, ridiculous and counterproductive holdout from the 49ers. No way the Crabtree fiasco was a Parker brainchild. He's been representing high-level NFL players for 20 years, including Sanders, Rod Woodson, Larry Fitzgerald, Emmitt Smith, Curtis Martin, Richard Seymour and Derrick Brooks.


He was a great player and a decent TV guy, but Deion Sanders should not be advising players.

This thing smells like a Sanders concoction. Ever since Master D negotiated himself off the high-profile CBS studio show and onto the low-profile NFL Network studio show, he's been buddying up (mentoring/advising) to young NFL players as a way of remaining relevant.

Just like his negotiations with CBS, his mentoring service has been a disaster.

The clown suit Master D just put on Crabtree might never be topped. Not only did Master D play a role in convincing Crabtree he could get paid based on the word of Mel Kiper rather than the checkbook of an NFL owner, Master D capped it off by sending another 1990s has-been and financial idiot (MC Hammer) to Crabtree's contract surrender.

Think about it. Crabtree had already made a complete ass out of himself and turned off the American football public with an irrational, greedy ploy IN THE MIDDLE OF A HISTORIC ECONOMIC CRISIS, but the involvement of Hammer ensured that comedians and late-night talk-show hosts had all the ammunition necessary to bury Crabtree.

Crabtree is a joke. He looks like the most naive and dumb athlete since Forrest Gump quit playing college football.

Master D owes Crabtree an apology. Sanders can apologize to Oklahoma State receiver Dez Bryant, too. After Bryant lied about visiting Sanders at his home, the NCAA ruled Bryant ineligible.

Deion Sanders was one of my favorite athletes of all time. Loved to watch him shut down one half the field. Loved his flamboyance and personality. I enjoyed his work on CBS. He had a chance to be the Charles Barkley of football.

Sanders blew it. He's turned into Master D, someone not humble enough to realize he made millions of dollars because God blessed him with Bob Hayes speed, not Johnnie Cochran's intellect.

Roger Goodell needs to close Master D Mentoring. The D stands for destruction or dumb, not Deion.

This is nothing personal toward Deion, but: anyone stupid enough to take advice from a pea-brain like Deion has, gets what he deserves. It's like taking lamaze advice from a man: what the hell does he know about it?

I agree with every word.. why would an athlete take advice from a vet who already got his and still thinks he didn't get enough?

The whole Crabtree deal stunk.. and if he really brought in MC Hammer then the 49ers are in for a long year. You would think after TO they would never travel down this road again.

Why the hell do you need a rapper, actor or former NFL player to tell you how to negotiate a 20 mill deal? You got the offer BEFORE any of them entered the picture..

I could have had Crabtree in camp and would have only charged 25%.. s steal of a deal. LOL!!

I don't know Crabtree's situation in life or any of the mentioned players either for that matter; but, my guess is that look Deion as a potential father figure if their father was absent from their life. The interesting fact here is that Deion works for the NFL and you would have thought that Goodell would have asked to talk with Deion about his advising NFL players as a potential conflict of interest or just plain bad idea.

So Pac-Man has been under the guidance of Meion, it all makes sense now. The only player in the history of the NFL i dislike more than PacMan is Meion. Both former cowgirls...Im just sayin'

Who was the longest Steeler rookie holdout that you can recall?
Rod Woodson EIGHT GAMES
His agent was Parker?
How the heck does this article imply that this guy has nothing to do with this holdout.

Another opinion:

Great point. Like I said, I'm not a big fan of Whitlock. Like most of these jerks, he likes to skew the facts to support his argument. The only reason I actually read the article was that I dislike Deion even more than Whitlock :lol:

It's just lazy journalism when he says something like this and he could have spent a few minutes finding out 17 out of 18 of Parkers last clients have held out. The best part is him calling it 'NFL Truths'....

Deon was great on the field, no one I belive could say different. Deon is too much of an egomaniac for me. He can't live without the spot light and he continues to find ways to plug himself.

Here's a tip. Anytime someone says it's nothing personal towards someone...it is something personal towards someone. :Cheers

And if someone starts a sentence with "I'm not racist or anything, but..." you can be sure that person is likely a card-carrying member of the Ku Klux Klan.

Once, I owned an Oldsmobile.

I was disappointed to learn that it was actually my father's Oldsmobile.
