It's an honor to welcome sports super agent Leigh Steinberg to the Virtual Lounge. On this edition of Beats & Eats Ty and Nick talk with Lee about his beginnings as a sports agent in the 1970's. Leigh explains how his job working with the biggest names in sports has evolved over 4 decades. Steinberg opens up about his sports management philosophy and much more. The episode concludes with Steinberg taking aim at the NFL's handling of concussions. The issue is a personal one for Leigh, whose hall of fame clients Steve Young and Troy Aikman saw their careers come to an end because of a head trauma. If you are a sports fan or non-sports fan, this is an entertaining and revealing conversation with the man who inspired the hit 1996 movie "Jerry Maguire." For more about Steinberg, check out his bestselling book: The Agent: My 40-Year Career Making Deals and Changing the Game.
