The Conflict Of Interest in Sports Agency & Representation.

A Well-Paid Slave: Curt Flood's Fight for Free Agency in Professional Sports
Long-Range Goals: The Success Story of Major League SoccerThe  conflict of interest within Sports agency and representation is such a paradox. It's amazing, yet intriguing, how agencies  continue to successfully represent players, coaches and Sports journalists (who cover the Sport) at the same time. How these agencies, representing two or more completely contradictory parties, manage ( especially when a crisis arises), leaves alot to be desired. How would one reconcile   this conflict so that all the parties involved are fairly, satisfactorily and, consequently, effectively represented without bias?
