This is done to protect the best interest of the player and the perspective association. Some of the pitfalls associated with agency law is that you must both be prepared for the worse. Mishaps can happen at the drop of a hat and can come in many forms. Deals for endorsements can fall through due to a contract violation, a player can be hurt on the field and be out of the game, or a player can be caught in a performance enhancing drug scandal, much like the Russians in the 2018 Olympics. “The World Anti-Doping Agency on Thursday refused to lift its suspension of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency, putting into doubt that country's participation in next year's Winter Olympics in South Korea” (Bonesteel, 2017).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
