Twitter reaction: Should fans cheer or boo Alex Rodriguez?
We asked, and you answered.
With Alex Rodriguez set to make his 2013 home debut at Yankee Stadium, we asked readers on Twitter and Facebook a simple question: "Would you boo or cheer Alex Rodriguez on Friday, and why?"
The best results will appear in Friday's paper, but here's a sampling of some of the responses.
@NewsdaySports I would yodel at him. I think he's often from somewhere else.— Maury Brown (@BizballMaury) August 8, 2013
@NewsdaySports how many chances does he get?integrity and morals should come before a tainted homeruns by a liar and a cheat.use commonsense— JUST SAYING... (@HATS_ALL_FOLKS) August 8, 2013
@NewsdaySports Neither, never booed any player on a team I root for but I don't agree with what he did.— SRRAG4454 (@SandyGWrites) August 8, 2013
@NewsdaySports ARod, Barry Bonds and Lance Armstrong can form the Legion of Fake Superstars. BOO— Walter Sego (@Walters_Ego) August 8, 2013
@NewsdaySports You boo him, you don’t cheer for a cheater. You can’t. It’s inhuman.— Sam Neumann (@Crazy4NYSports) August 8, 2013
@NewsdaySports Neither. Let him soak in the silence of how insignificant he is to the game now— Vamos Mets (@VamosMets) August 8, 2013
@NewsdaySports I would boo lustily - then obfuscate when I'm tested for Human Jeer Hormone— A. Schotz (@LawnGyland) August 8, 2013
@NewsdaySports I would not boo ARod. I would boo Selig for causing this circus and not acting faster against steroids for "good of the game"— donna p (@dp57) August 8, 2013
@NewsdaySports cheer. I believe there are so many players using enhancements. It's not fair to just signal him out.— Shawn Leonardi (@sleo03) August 8, 2013
