What exactly does a runner do? If he basically just trying to push people to one agent over another?
Pretty much. The business is no longer about what agent has the best track record or credentials. It isn't even about who has your best interests in mind. Instead, it comes down to who has the best runner (realizing that agents can capitalize on the naievity and impressionable minds that are coming into the league and exploit that for their own benefit). Glass mentions how he has had some of his clients stolen away from him because of these runners who start getting into the ears of his clients. Certain agents hire these guys to do their dirty work.
