I can't imagine that they could get that deal for McBeth and then not have most (if not all) players working with them. I'm sure they are having a huge "behind the scenes" impact on sponsorship.

My understanding is that group isn't doing much of anything (that site hasn't been updated with anything in a year, that's kinda telling). I could be wrong, but I believe all players are still acting as their own agents, at least with regard to manufacturer sponsors.

Yeah, I don't think the McBeth deal was due to the work of the DGI group

That said, the name doesn't bother me.
why'd you put "cigar" in quotes? what makes you think it's anything other than a cigar?

That could be. There is a story going around about one player who has changed their sponsorship arrangement, and if that story is true it would mean that player had no representative because it's basically about the player having pathetic negotiating skills.

Paige should make her tagline “Grow my income.” I’d buy a few stamped discs.

I think that there is a space for player management. But currently all but one player do their negotiations by themselves. I believe that Paul had some outside counsel.
