A friend of mine hosts charity golf outings to raise money for Downs syndrome or something similar. One of the holes has a special prize: a hole in one nets you a brand new Chevy SUV.
He told me that the charity basically buys an insurance policy. The dealer loans the car out for display at the event. If someone gets the hole in one, s/he gets the car and the insurance pays the dealer.
I can only imagine the actuaries out there measuring the hole, checking the grade of the hills, etc., to figure out what the risk is.
Interesting topic, but the article provides practically zero info on "The calculations behind the insurance of athletes".
Let's say ARod comes back, either in 2013 or 2014, the team is better for it but the contract still hurts them a great deal as his decline continues,
The only way I could see someone suing Rodriguez would be if the Yankees pay him, the insurer fails to pay because the injury was steroid-related, the Yankees sue the insurer and lose then the Yankees sue him.
If they lose and then sue ARod, they then have to argue the opposite. Can their first position be held against them in the second suit?
Of course, Francesa is also a moron. So listening to anything he says is ill-advised.
Is there the slightest whiff of evidence from anyone close to ARod, anonymously or otherwise, that he has said he is thinking of retiring?
