    Couldn't happen to a nice person. I love the fact that he can't even take an advisory role. Means that his brother Kevin will have to go SOLO. Wonder if Kevin will be able to handle it.

    I guess Ty will be doing his two a days courtesy of Carl - got Ty hoodwinked into his second phoney deal in as many seasons just under the wire. Ty has some seriously misplaced loyalties. If he signed the deal the team that drafted him offered in 2004 he'd be $2M ahead of the game with essentially 2 $5M seasons to go - which is likely all he'll ever see in KC. Instead he puts his faith in two guys who have never delivered for him. Stupid.

    So since this is UPHOLDING a previously issued suspension;
    .
    .

    .
    Does this mean the Law-Chiefs deal is invalidated and we can start another "Will the Pats sign Ty Law?" thread ??? ;)

    Poston now INDEFINITELY banned by Union

    From KFFL:
    NFL | Poston suspended indefinitely
    Wed, 26 Jul 2006 20:11:52 -0700

    John Clayton, of ESPN.com, reports the NFL Players Association notified the NFL that agent Carl Poston has been suspended indefinitely. The NFL informed all 32 teams in a memo that Poston can't be involved in negotiations for any player, nor can he be an adviser on any deals. The term of the suspension was "until further notice." It was unclear why the union termed the suspension "until further notice" when the original length was two years.


    I wonder how this effects Ty deal with the Cheifs? At least the Pats won't have to deal with him anymore.

    PFT reported that only Kevin's name was on Ty's contract. So obviously they either knew it was coming or they planned ahead.....for a change....

    Apparently not.

    Word has it that they've now had to ask their older brother, Tom, to fill in at the agency as well.

    He doesn't have much experience as an NFL agent, but then again, he can't do much worse than Carl... and at the very least, maybe he can ACT like a player agent.

    Carl was already serving a suspension, so was ineligible to negotiate or close any deals--it would have been supreme idiocy to have him involved in any deal (not that idiocy is out of character for them mind you).

    Re: Poston now INDEFINITELY banned by Union

    Not true. He was eligible to continue working while his appeal was being heard. In fact Kevin stepped in as the front man on Ty's deal about two weeks ago when Carl ruptured his achilles.

    There is no way the NFLPA can stop Carl from consulting his brothers - they will likely have a micro chip implanted behind brother Tom's pale left ear so he too can pimp their shrinking stable of players...:rofl:

    What this means is Carl can't bein contact with any of the GM's or players directly. And among Poston's he was considered the brains....:eek:

    Near as I can tell he's still alive, at least according to Wikipedia (interesting trivia - he married actress Suzanne Plechette in 2001 (who played Bob Newhart's wife on the Bob Newhart show... odd, I wonder if it feels like he's cheating on Bob!).

    But even if he is dead, that's probably a bonus if you're being represented by the Poston's as he's less likely to do any harm.

    PFT is saying the suspension is for 2 years:
