---- — Do you agree with the Alex Rodriguez suspension (162 games, plus playoffs)?

 

“I agree, I think that people think they can buy their way out of it. He’s tried to play the victim already, and in many ways he’s getting off easy.”

Toby Wilcox, Fly Creek, cardiac nurse practitioner

 

“I think it’s just right, should have to do the time for breaking the rules.”

Dave Burch, Cooperstown, supply manager

 

“I agree, it’s illegal to use so he needs to be punished.”

 

Mike Lander, Oneonta, retail

 

“What bothers me about it is that it wasn’t a court that decided and found him guilty of a crime, it was arbitration.”

Howard Reed, Oneonta, professor

 

“I think he should have been banned for life, I think he’s had too many second chances.”

Shari Ploutz, Oneonta, physician’s assistant

 

“I agree with the suspension, he got what he deserved.”

Cameron Bailey, Oneonta, Boys and Girls Club worker
