As history supports, professional athletes have had a bad reputation with illegal substances and not only that but most of the time, there is an inability to take responsibility for their actions. In the news this month is Alex Rodriguez (A-Rod). Rodriguez is a famous major league baseball player for the New York Yankees. He has recently been suspended for most of the 2014 baseball season, sitting out 162 games of the 183 game series. Losing $22,131,147 of his $25 million contract, he will still be paid $3 million for the games he is able to play.
