Poll: A-Rod's Suspension Wasn't Fair

Player gets one year

Alex Rodriguez may be ready for a "rest" and think that his one-year suspension is a "favor," but a majority of people responding to THELAW.TV's poll don't think his suspension is fair.

THELAW.TV polled 500 Internet users to find out whether they believe the baseball superstar's one-year suspension is fair. A majority said, no, A-Rod didn't get a fair suspension.

Here are the results of THELAW.TV's poll:

58% of Americans say, no, A-Rod's one-year suspension was not fair

42% of Americans say, yes, A-Rod's one-year suspension was fair

Here are some comments from the poll respondents:

  • "He's only had one previous incidence, so by rule his suspension should be only 100 games. I don't understand the thinking behind giving him extra time."
  • "It's hard to say in baseball. He never failed a test, so who knows who's juicing. Maybe they should just allow PEDs."
  • "I am a baseball fan and sports fan, but they proved nothing and he did not fail a test. In court, it would be tossed out. No evidence."

THELAW.TV's survey was conducted on Thumb using a demographically balanced internet-based survey of 500 American adults and has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4.9 percent.
