Don't see ARod settling for any less than all the money he's due regardless if he used. The contract he signed doesn't have any language regarding PED use. If anything, NYY would pay whatever is necessary to be rid of him if he used after his admission in 2009...
As far as the suspension goes, a player can be suspended if on the DL...

Thats we have a judicial system in this country. Yanks should haul his ass into court and sue him for back wages.

Good moral character is lying? I think the high paid lawyers will have a field day with this. Drag him thru the mud. Bottom line is they pay, he retires. Or he is humiliated. Bat him 9th. Sit him. Yanks can tell him they don't want him face to face. Bottom line,yanks pay..
Comes down to what is deemed as "moral" regarding the clause in the MLB players contract. Too vague to define. Think MLB owners would've acted long ago to get out of paying someone who was found to be immoral...

Think NYY would pay ARod to go away instead of hitting him at the bottom of the order. It's a no win to keep him in order to prove a point...

my point was that is the vague threat...they do not want to see him on the field...they would bury him in the dugout...

and agreed its vague...but enough to cause a headache...

its all about the money for arod and saving face....if he retires due to his injury and does the wink wink with the yanks...for all or 90% of his contract, it goes away...

I say he is gone, its just how much he gets and the way for him to do this...

I'm doomed as an Islanders fan knowing fatty roots for them, now I know how the guys that are Jet and Mets fans must feel.


any fan of the mets,nets, jets and islanders need to make him go away...otherwise, its a losing year and years to come...

hey, at least at least he does not have a suite at the isles games! or is involved with managment as he is in the other 3 teams...then again, maybe he will come on and declare that also

you can only hope!

Nah, just becuase it does not say that in his contract does not give him a green light to use them also.

Take him to court and sue his ass and for back wages.

Of course NYY would look into voiding the contract or some form of repayment as they did in 2009. Didn't happen then & won't happen now...

"The New York Yankees are looking at multiple avenues to void their contract with third baseman Alex Rodriguez, but success is unlikely, according to ESPNNewYork.com ."

If it's proven ARod used, only recourse for NYY is to pay him to go away. The union would take up the legal fight to protect their membership against any potential legal precedence...

Nice win for the young Islanders last night and a big move for Mike Tannenbaum.....Mike has finally come clean publically what I told the forum and what most close to the team knew all along, it was him and only him that orchestrated the Tebow deal. Rex warned him and told him he would not be part of the team in any significant way and under no circumstances would he start a game for the New York Jets yet he still pulled the trigger going so far as advising Mr Johnson that Rex was on board. It was disturbing that Mike a long time personal friend of Rex, tried to drag him down through the media claiming Rex was also alright with the trade, a total lie. Rex being the man he is never ever denied the charge to the press, that's not his style, but had many a strong word for Mike behind closed doors and finally had no choice but to fire him. It's good Mike has begun to salvage his reputation in the NFL with this public apology and I wish him well.
Hey moron I bet the jets would of went 9-7 or 8-8 with Tebow in there....anyone's better than that pathetic bum Sanchez you clueless dope.....

If it's proven ARod used after his 2009 admission, this gets settled privately between all parties with strict confidentiality clauses...

Didn't happen in 2009 & won't happen now, as much as NYY fans who have no use for ARod would like it to happen...

Nah, you've got to have some of that fat on the outer edge of the steak. When you grill it & the fat gets all burnt & crunchy. That's the best part, man!
