    A-rod refusing to pay his 3+ million legal bill

    When Alex Rodriguez was lambasting baseball's powers and his own bosses with the Yankees --suing his Yankees doctor, criticizing beloved late union chief Michael Weiner in court papers and at one point reportedly even leaking damaging information about Ryan Braun and teammate Francisco Cervelli --folks around baseball were speculating that A-Rod's only remaining friends may be his own lawyers.

    Now even some of them presumably don't like him much.

    A-Rod has refused to pay a large part of his legal bill, sources said, confirming a report in the New York Daily News.

    Those sources estimate that he has refused to pay about $3 million out of an estimated $5 million or more in legal fees. Those sources further say he has refused to even return phone calls on the matter, making it clear he has no interest in paying.

    Beyond the fact that $3 million is a pittance to him -- he is said to have a lot of money keft, plus $61 million more to come from the Yankees -- if he tries claiming malpractice, his lawyer-client privilege will be waived, with the possibility of damaging testimony becoming public. Perhaps at this point A-Rod believes his rep is so bad that he can't be harmed, and he only has his money left.

    A lot of people don't and a lot of people get sued by their lawyers.

    Sarcasm obviously.

    Is anyone shocked by this? I'm with Jeffy on this. He just needs to go away. At this point, I just don't want to hear his name anymore.

    It amazes me to think that, not too long ago, he was being held up as the guy who'd likely break the all-time home run record, and that he'd be a more popular holder of that record than Bonds.

    I despite that racist Bonds -- but he looks like a choirboy next to A-Roid!

    His net worth is over 300 million. He could still make 60+ million (I could be wrong) when he potential gets bought out or returns in a year. Pay your ****ing bills! It's not like this will go away. They will eventually sue him and will eventually pay.

    He is such a piece of **** with no character or integrity. I put him in the same league as Bonds.
