Continued from Page 54

"All along the line
everybody is out for their own
best interests and the guy
that ultimately gets kind of
hurt is the athlete himself.
"The schools say they don't
want agents in there, but at
the same time, you see what's
going on with them (the
schools) buying off the kids,
basically, to have them play
at their university — special
classes, different things — I'm
not saying all universities are
like that, but you can read in
the papers what goes on with
certain football programs and
basketball programs at cer-
tain schools and how the
alumni get involved.
"The universities, at the
same time, are trying to
regulate agents, but in my
opinion, you don't regulate
agents by keeping them out
and refusing them (access to
the athletes). Because what
they're doing is, the
legitimate people aren't get-
ting to the players and it's the
guys that come through the
back door with the gold
chains and the cars and the
money under the table that
are getting to the players
regardless of what the col-
leges want. And it's my opi-
nion that the universities
should expose the players and
educate people."
Brode says he contacts col-
leges to set up legal meetings
with players following their
senior seasons. By then, he
notes, many players have
already made agreements
with agents, despite the ef-
forts of the universities to pre-
vent in-season contacts with
agents.
Brode feels the National
Collegiate Athletic Associa-
tion should recognize student-
athletes as special types of
students who provide the
university with a service —
drawing fans and money to
the athletic program — and
who deserve special treat-
ment. He says if athletes
received, in addition to
scholarships, "a few dollars
every month to live on," the
number of players who accept
money illegally from agents
would drop.
In his business, Brode deals
with people from across the
country, but he is not a fre-
quent business flyer. "I can be
in New York as easily as hav-
ing an office on 5th Avenue,
(by) having an office in the
Penobscot Building. Pick up
the telephone and I'm there
— no problems."
Away from work it's a dif-
ferent story. "Travelling is my
favorite thing to do," he says.
Brode has visited China,
Israel, Europe, South
America and the Far East.
