    Anyone see this by Mike Lynch on All Access?

    Following a successfull football career I can easily see McGinest doing well in the sports agent business. Above all else, Willie has great people skills and personality. As long as he can all the shots on how this will go...I can see him making huge dollars in the future and staying in the news....

    Way to go Willie...looks like you will be around for many, many years.

    Actually... that makes me a little ill. Willie making money off of sending AV to the Dolts... is... just... wrong, somehow. Get ready for the next one... Willie making money off hooking up Troy Brown with the Jests.

    You know... I always wondered why Snoop Dogg was seen wearing a Willie McGinest jersey in 2 of his videos. I guess they're buds... maybe the USC thing too.

    Maybe Ricky Williams & Onterrio Smith should be asking Willie about some helpful tips. ;)

    Initially...it could cause problems. But in a few years, when forced to pay up, the Jesters would be seeing their players heading North.

    Willie will get over it and have a good repore with Belichick. Not saying it will help Belichick sign people but Bill will find it easy to get his toe in the door of players he desires.

    Uberstein is obviously using Willie to build business...but Willie will sack Gary in about 5 years and move on and up.

    I think Snoop Dogg and Willie coach a Pop Warner team together or something like that (or maybe they played together when they were younger). I remember reading something about their friendship in PFW.

    He needs to go to law school and go through a hefty amount of paperwork. Usually it's only college and maybe marginal pro athletes (see Condon), if they even have any playing background at all (see Rosenhaus) who become agents.

    I think he'll just own or help run the company. Luring in the fish, softening
    them up. Approaching new draftees...young kids may trust a former nfl'er with a great reputation. He'll let the lawyers be the actual legal agents.

    They grew up togehter...I remember in Houston th3 SB on game day Kraft and Snoop doing hig 5s...SNoop had a team of teens there to meet the team and such..It seems odd that WIllie would get a cut..but it is small I am sure. Makes sense for WMcG to do it. A good future!!

    So Willie actually made money off himself when he signed with the Browns. Brilliant!!
