Roc Nation Sports Hits a Roadblock


Last week Jay Z recruited the first athlete to Roc Nation Sports [click here if you missed that], but according to NFLPA rules, he can't recruit another player until he obtains an undergraduate and post graduate degree...

From Pro Football Talk
An interesting wrinkle arose on Friday regarding the emerging relationship between CAA and Jay-Z’s new firm, Roc Nation. Based on rules passed by the NFLPA in 2012, Jay-Z can’t recruit players to sign with CAA unless Jay-Z becomes an NFLPA-certified agent.
The concerns emerged because rival agents see the obvious problem with having Jay-Z recruit Giants receiver Victor Cruz to sign with CAA. The NFLPA reportedly has no problem with the connection, given Jay-Z’s established friendship with Cruz. Moving forward, however, Jay Z won’t be able to help close deals with CAA unless he’s certified.
The situation becomes even more challenging if Jay-Z doesn’t have an undergraduate degree. It’s unclear whether any exemption is available if he lacks that credential.

don't worry they'll find a way to get around that. but in the mean-time he'll just have someone else doing the "recruiting" for him. he'll be a ghost recruiter.

Sounds about right to me.

He's a con artist and nothing else.

Only thing JayZoo's greed and stupidity would have landed him in jail. Too bad, would have liked to see that.

Jay-Z had these white agents running scared. Sports is a lucrative business run by white owners and white agents and the last thing a white man want to see is black people trusting their own and doing business with their own people. If that were to happen, Jay-Z could very well bankrupt these white folks in the sports arena.

Jayz can't bankrupt nobody but his own checking account with his shady live nation and pepsi deals. The Cartels need to ask Whitney what happens when you can't pay back a hundred million dollar loan. He can't even bankrupt other restaurants from competition with 20/20, what makes you think he has anybody shook? Stop trying to make these people God like or glorify them. Right now he's in serious debt and people are tired of Bouncy prostituting her coochie on stage for cash, so he can't rely too much on her dwindling income.

Better to earn an honest living and enjoy life than chase greed and limelight. Other celebs are enjoying there riches, they know when to fall back, you don't see them saturating the media cause they actually have money.

Now, JayZ get off this blog with your delusional ass!

_______________________

Nope. You're wrong...that applies to the POST GRADUATE/ADVANCED DEGREE condition (i.e. masters, PhD) NOT Bachelor's degree.

According to the NFL Player’s Association site “I do not have a post graduate degree are there any exceptions? The NFLPA may grant exceptions to the advanced degree requirement. If you have an undergraduate degree you will need to show by way of documentation that you have a minimum of 7 years sufficient negotiating experience. You should send those documents to the NFLPA after you have submitted the online application.”

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I hear you on this, but do you really think it ain't already black agents out there trying to make it happen? It's just that the white agents are all you hear about because of their popularity.

If I were an agent (I'm black), I'd try to block his ass too. All he's doing is trying to use his popularity as a rapper to sway athletes into joining his group. If I had to go to school to learn how to do this agent shit, his ass should have to do the same thing. Mutha fuckas ain't blocking him because he's black, their blocking him because he ain't paid his dues.

Look up Rufus Williams (former Board President to Chicago Public Schools). He has a sports agency that represents athletes and he's black. He paid his dues....he did it the right way and didn't take shortcuts.

I ain't knocking "Louie Lips" for his greed for green. I'm just knocking him for trying to do it the easy way.

Lot of you guys are cheering when there is nothing to cheer for. Ha Ha Jay-Z can't be an NFL agent. dumb nigga, fuck his wife too. Sorry guys, this will do nothing to stop him from being a baseball agent where he is in position to sign half the yankees and several dodgers and also not goung to stop him from signing several NBA players including guess who? Lebron James. He's also rumored to have a deal in place with Floyd Mayweather. Even if they lock him out of the NFL he's still going to clean up in other sports. He has signed one NFL player and this will simply prevent him from signing others but will not prevent him from signing baseball players and basketball players and boxers. These dozens of posts bashing him should have done a little more research. He's going to win big in this new venture. Jay hangs with guys like Magic, Bill Clinton, Steve Stoute. He has more business knowledge himself and mentors than just about anyone in America, if he makes a business move you can best believe it was researched and put into a proposal by someone with an ivy league degree that works for him

JZ has the wrong mindset for longevity he does not use basic sustainable moral values. Selling drugs to your fellow man shows total disregard for humanity. He may (and I use that word loosely) not sell drugs at this time but he still displays that fast money attitude. The love of money and the actions attached thereto has never reaped a sweet harvest. He needs to re-think his game plan, add a win-win component!
