Just figured out that you shouldn't ask for more money or less events. Basically got all the available endorsements 2 games into my new MyCareer character. Just a little info for newcomers or anyone else that doesn't already know this.
One game later and have already started leveling up in compensations.
Six games in and already have...2K, Spalding, Mitchell & Ness, Tissot, Stance, Gatorade, Jordan and now Kia.
