"Horrible," Cuban replied to Leno's question about Rodriguez's suspension. "I think it's disgraceful what Major League Baseball is trying to do to him. Look, it's not that he doesn't deserve to be suspended. He does. They have policies in place: A first-time offender is 50 games, and a second time is 100. [Two hundred and eleven games], that's personal."

The reality is the guy broke the rules. He basically admitted that he had broken the rules before. But to come out [with the suspension MLB is going for] and try to give him a lifetime ban, that's just wrong."

"Being in sports, I try to pay attention to all of the technology and everything," Cuban said. "It's never been proven that HGH helps a baseball player or a basketball player. It's just been so tainted that players shouldn't take it that it's become banned for no good reason."

"You can go in a lot of different directions," Cuban said. "But I think this is more about Bud Selig trying to flex his muscles and say, 'If you don't kiss the ring, I'm going to take care of you and kick you out of Major League Baseball.' I think that's wrong."

He'd have a point if ARod's suspension was solely for failing a drug test

None one failed a drug test, the other 12 got 50 game bans. Cuban has a point A-Rod got singled out. 211 games is retarded.

I like Cuban but it sounds like someone is still salty about not getting to buy the Cubs.

Except ARod recruited other players into Biogenesis and attempted to buy and destroy evidence.

Arod has cheated and lied his entire career.

He has never been clean.

He has never been honest.

He is not sorry.



Cuban is still sore over not being allowed to buy the Cubs and the Rangers.

Don't have to according to the JDA

1. First violation: 50-game suspension;
2. Second violation: 100-game suspension; and
3. Third violation: Permanent suspension from Major League and Minor League Baseball;

Note the key words of possession.

Also, to repeat, it's not just for possession

This is A-Rod's first "official" violation right?
