According to ESPN, Rodriguez has offered to pay WVU $1.5 million for breaching a contract that calls for $4 million in liquidated damages. I think I’m a high enough ranking official within WVU’s Athletic Department to say, “HAHAHAHA How ’bout you just pay $4 million bitch.”
Quotes from the Letter of Credit show that Fraud has no leg to stand by stating that he is “a responsible person”…yeah responsible for breaching a contract that calls for $4 million in damages. It also cities to the original contract signed by Rodriquez before the ‘Bama situation and the newest amendment signed in August (poking myself in the eye).
I have thought all along that this case will likely be settled out of court for upwards of $3 million. This is a low ball offer and I would not be surprised if we see a story tomorrow stating that WVU wants the full $4 million.
The back-and-forth is likely to continue until both sides run out of piss and realize this whole situation needs to end. However, it is looking like Fraud is never going to let this go and will be trying to screw WVU every chance he gets.
