Why should there be a hall of fame for a bunch of thieving murdering drug dealers in uniform sports should be a form of community service not a paid program who cares if he gets anywhere let alone the hall of fame by the way isnt betting with a bookie illegal mebbe he should go do his prison time

think about Pete Rose. I remember watching him play and from where I sat, he didn't show a lot of sportsmanship. I can see agressive behavior in a player, but old pete seemed to enjoy hurting the opposing basemen a little too much for my taste. Personally, I don't buy into his claim that he is now repentant. His repentence is limited to selling his book and getting into the hall of fame. If they let him in they should admit the Chicago 9. Strictly my opinion, Of course,...........Alias

You got me to thinking...I followed Pete fairly closely...his contract got him on his "Morals clause" thats why hes banned the proof was overwhelming he bet on baseball. He unlike the others you named did'nt take drugs so his on the field performance was pure not enhanced or diminished, So his on field records should be noticed. After he quit playing and started coaching his troubles began.

best wishes

Good point Pete, You are exactly right!!
Bill Clinton is one of them, Pete Rose has nothing on this idiot. Pete Rose disgraced himself, Bill Clinton disgraced every single American and was involved in criminal activity beyond belief, and now people actually voted her in a public office and are talking of her running for president. I'd vote for Michael Jackson first. Wake Up America!!

I remeber vividly watching Pete play...he was magnificient and tough as nails.
He should be allowed is the hall of fame for his merits on the field.
He should not be allowed back in baseball because of the example he set..."He Lied and broke the law" he got caught and he was punished. Not to mention what he did was actually a crime and he knew the consequences and signed a contract fully knowing what could happen.
He Like other people of notiably think its ok to lie now and ask forgiveness later when the heat lessens....
put him the hall....keep him outa baseball

best wishes

Never heard of him. Now, Bret Favre? I've heard of him, all over the country and it has more to do with his actions on the field!
