AROD meeting with the Mets....

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/writers/jon_heyman/11/05/gm.meetings.mon.night/

What do you think of this idea :

AROD wants $30 million a year..but is a value at $15 million, no? I mean the Yankees were paying him that practically (with Texas paying $7 million).

If that's the case, what if the mets started a "Die Hard Fan" Club.

There has to be 3 million Met fans around the country that would want AROD right?

What if we can get 10% of them (300,000) or 5% of them (150,000) to purchase a "ultra fan club registration" of $100 each (x150k) or $50 each (x300k)? That fan club cost would get you a "special edition" AROD, hat, jersey, etc, a password to a special Mets site, perhaps to get SNY "Sportsnite" downloads for free for ipod or something, 4 pairs of tickets to games (crappy seats, upper decks for pirates, nationals, etc).

We could use that money to pay for the $15 million or so for AROD and the Mets can pay the remaining $15 million or so .

Thoughts?

I would sign up for that to bring AROD to Shea / Citi Field.

That is the worst idea I have ever seen, fans already pay the players salaries by buying tickets, merch. How about the owners make a few million less per year.

Or they can just take all the money from the seat licenses they are selling to Citi field and give that to the greedy cunt.

This is the most asinine idea ever. When did the Mets become the Tampa Bay Devil Rays? They drew over 4 million this season, if they want that bag of shit, they should easily be able to pay him 30 mil. Mets fans should be asked to pony up because the Wilpons are cheep fucks.

I'd rather give Johan Santana $31M just to spite Boras.
