Default cutler's babyish antics continue when relating to business matters

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...f-field-focus/

Quote:
In response to an item posted earlier today by Aaron Wilson regarding the Bears' new starting quarterback, a league source has given us the rest of the story that resulted in Jay Cutler hiring entertainment lawyer Jeff Jacobs, apparently to eventually manage Cutler's off-field opportunities.

Per the source, Jacobs replaces Marty Garafalo, who previously served as Cutler's "business manager."

The source explains that Garafalo was heavily involved in Cutler's affairs, including the creation of his foundation -- and its transfer to Cutler's new home of Chicago.

In fact, we're told that Garafalo traveled to Chicago to help Cutler with various matters relating to the move from Denver. And then, once Garafalo returned to Denver, he was fired.

By text message.

(At least it proves that Cutler knows how to send text messages. When he wants to.)

And so the manner in which Cutler parted ways with Garafalo is prompting some league insiders to wonder whether Cutler truly has matured since being shipped to the Bears.
had his old business manager help him move from denver to chicago, then immediately fired him, via text. what a standup guy!

Cutler Holding Off On Endorsements, For Now

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...ments-for-now/

In what seems like a sign of growing maturity, newly-minted Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is resisting the urge to have his name plastered all over the Windy City.

Cutler's motivation to avoid becoming a one-man billboard?

He wants to win a few games, establish himself in the locker room, and then sift through some prospective business deals, according to Bob Legere of the Arlington Daily Herald.

"With all the excitement that's happened so far, there have been a lot of endorsement opportunities," Cutler said. "But I've kind of steered clear of those because I haven't even stepped on the field yet. I'm trying to take care of that before I step into that realm . . .

"I want to go out and play some games and prove myself first. I want to get rid of some of the skepticism surrounding me and just go out there and play."

That seem like a reasonable stance to take.

Especially since Cutler drew so much bad publicity following his messy divorce from the Denver Broncos, as he was labeled a brat and worse.

Not to mention his 17-20 record as a starter.

Chasing every dollar might not be Cutler's best move right now, so he's holding off on pursuing outside income at this point.

"Any NFL quarterback has a whole bunch of endorsement opportunities if he wants them," SportsBusiness Journal editor Terry Lefton said. "It all depends on the athlete's willingness to do them."

Per the report, Cutler is planning ahead for future off-field deals.

And he isn't holding back when it comes to representation, hiring entertainment lawyer Jeff Jacobs. Jacobs is an ex-president for Oprah Winfrey's entertainment company.

And virtually everything Oprah touches turns to gold.

Yes... why don't you tell me the part you found so disturbing.

Was it the text message part?

Was it that his business manager continued to earn his salary by helping his client move to another city?

What?

keep the spin going, i too like to make bears QBs look good. how about the fact taht he fired his manager after his manager helped him move, and didnt even have the balls to tell him to his face? do you not understand that?

how come people like you always have to try and spin **** so jay cutler, and subsequently you, look good, when all facts and reality points to the opposite? especially considering hes not even on the team because he chose not to be? doesnt make sense.

Let me be honest... I'm a little bias here.

I fired my gardener last week... by email... 2 days after he mowed my lawn.

I guess I should feel ashamed...

Hopefully PFT doesn't write an article about my maturity level citing "neighborhood sources"

if he was your gardener from 10 years, you moved 1500 miles away, he flew out to cut your lawn, then you fired him after that, that as you said is poor etiquette. however, cutler has a very long history of similar actions, it doesnt seem to be changing anytime soon.

So allowing your local business manager to do his job prior to finding a new local business manager is bad... OK

Your reaching boss... what you have here amounts to poor etiquette. Don't worry if Cutler is as evil as you think he is, there will be plenty of really bad stories in the future. Just be patient.

poor etiquette=unprofessional, which cutler has a very long track record of being. this is just more evidence of that.

Yep, your right... the bears are doomed.

As soon as they stop doing backflips over this trade I'm sure they will see things for how they really are.

never said they were doomed did i? just said you cant keep spinning articles to point away from the fact that jay cutler as a person is a dbag to the nth degree, and it will carry over on to the field as far as leadership and accountability is concerned.
