agents or athletes? wrote:
I have been watching the Brooks Beasts videos on Flotrack and their coach and athletes seemed pretty whiney regarding getting into meets, but I am starting to notice it is pretty unfair.
The Beats really only have Mackey and Heath, but did Donn Cabral, Craig Forys, Donnie Cowart, or Cory Leslie not want to race Brussells steeple? They all have run faster and/or beat him head to head.
Is Paul Doyle that much more powerful than those others agents?
Didn't know Paul Doyle repped Bayer and I haven't checked who reps the other guys you mention, but Paul Doyle is certainly a very powerful agent. See http://www.iaaf.org/athletes/athlete-representatives/directory/paul-j-doyle-187635 for selected athletes he was repping as of 11/2013.
He also reps Gabe Grunewald, which I think has a LOT to do with why USATF ended up reinstating her as indoor 3000m champion.
He's also the guy behind those ATF meets this past spring/summer.
