Heh. IF these guys were CEO's Michael Moore would be doing documentaries about them....cheating, making tens of millions (a year in some cases) and retiring from bankrupt organizations.

Instead we ask them for their autographs, wear their jerseys etc.

Manny wasn't paid during his 50 day suspension costing him about $7.5 million.

You are referrring to the 2009 incident and not the 2011 incident.

Since I specifically mentioned retirement to avoid the penalty I am of course referring to the 2011 incident which would have involved 100games.

I'm fairly confident that retiring forfeits your remaining salary.
