    Rudy Fernandez
    of the Portland Trail Blazers has been fined $50,000 for public statements detrimental to the NBA, the league announced today.

    The statements, which concerned a desire to be released by the Trail Blazers, were made by Fernandez’s agent, Gerard Darnes, on October 6. Fernandez was previously fined $25,000 on August 19 for statements concerning his desire to be traded or released by Portland.
    Add that 50,000 to his 25,000 tab on August 19th and that adds up to a lot of change, especially for a player who is taking less money to play here and I think he had to help pay some of his buyout but I could be mistaken on that. Anyway, I'd hope his agent would pick up some of the tab since it was he who wrote the letter.

    if it's his agent who made the comments, then Rudy probably shouldn't receive the fine. i am greatly tired of this whole piece of drama.

    Sadly the agent is suppose to represent his client and his wishes so more then likely Rudy made the statement. I am not a Rudy basher...I love his game and I hope this all works out so we can have him one more season to see what happens. Last year he had injuries just like the other guys and I don't believe we saw a healthy Rudy all year. So far he has had a good pre-season, so once again I hope we keep him and can work it out.

    peace out,

    They should fine Jason Quick for instigating the topic all over again  which is what Rudy's agent was responding too!


    I think Rudy needs a new agent.

    What if Rudy had told his agent to make the statements, even after his agent mentioned it was a bad idea?

    if he's not careful he's not only finna be out of a job, but his a$$ will be broke too.

    No mas. It's his agent who should leave. Rudy still has that bueno game, certainly not showing the drama happening off-court.

    What if Rudy and his agent had issues off-court, and the agent is using his position to degrade his client? I think the client has to fire his agent. If Rudy can't fire his agent, Rich Cho has to intervene (but I think Cho has to intervene in this issue already to prevent more drama)! Watcha say? (NOTE: This is just another crazy idea that sprung out of my mind)

    I have a better idea. Lets keep agitating the agent. Rudy cant stand to many more fines. And why the hell should Quick get fined? He's doing his job, unlike Rudy and Booty the agent.  Todays lesson is easy. Not even a fish would get into trouble if it kept its mouth shut.

    That was a joke to fine Quick. geez And for the record i disagree with Quick "doing his job", he needlessly brought up a touchy situation which was laying dormant for a change, Rudy was playing well and maybe we could have had better luck trading him. Then in swoops Quick with his unprofessional ridicule of Rudy Fernandez to get some tabloid reporting out of his blood. I know his agent could have handled it better, but I don't blame him for wanting to stick up for Rudy or for Rudy wanting to stick up for himself.

    Here's an oldie but goodie. Sticks and stones... I agree with one thing, Rudy was playing well. Thats it. We cant lose sight of the big picture here. We are not going to be held hostage by this average player. As for Quick needlessly bringing up a touchy situation, that too is his job. To have the testicles to ask what some of us are thinking. Rudy's salary doesnt just come right out of P.A.'s pocket, it comes from the concessions, the beers,peanuts, cheap suits,parking, walking in the winter from the expletive MAX line. Its all of us who pay his salary. We pay his salary with our attendance, our cheering, our support. If Quick wants to ask him something basketball related, i say let him. If Rudy wants his agent to speak on his behalf, thats the price he has to pay. $50k a pop.

    Let me rephrase, he needlessly resurrected a topic that was 3 days old, and by resurrected I mean he brought absolutely NO new information or facts to the table, all he brought was his own opinion of Rudy needing some kleenex, like his opinion was more important than integrity. He was basically taking cheap shots at a guy who couldn't defend himself, even though he tried and was fined. IMO that is not Quick's job. Unless he wants to work for TMZ.

    It's a shame that an organization like the NBA is dedicated to censor freedom of expression. In the end, Rudy is going anywhere and the dictator Stern will keep his money but not a great player.
    Encouragement, Rudy! Come back to Spain!

    Cho?
    Where is Cho in all this?
    Where is Larry Miller? I saw him on the court talkin' to players during pregame warmups.
    It's hard to understand the Blazer management silence to the fans, while the disgruntled guard keeps spoutin' off, and getting heavily fined.
    What, are the Blazers higharchy getting a cut of the fines or sumthin'?
    What's 5% of 50k? Hmmmmm

    I think Blazer management is trying to set a different relationship with the media, after past mistakes.
    I don't see how Cho has anything to do with this one.  Agents are on my last nerve this off season.
    I too will be glad when this is over, it sets a bad example for all future Euro players, and I for one, am very thankful for Nico.
