Should he or should he not

Should Pete be admitted to the baseball hall of fame? I say no. Not simply because he gambled. Many people gamble. And, not because he lied. For, as far as I know, everyone lies at one time or another. My concern has to do with whether or not he has, now, and in the past, set a good example for children everywhere.

In my opinion, it's one thing to play hard and try to win. But, it's an entirely other thing to try to take out a man guarding a base. Now, I've been a baseball fan for as long as I can remember. And, Pete Rose, is the only man in baseball that I didn't like during his playing days. The reason was that he tried too hard to injure opposing player. And, that's not how you set a good example for others to follow. It's just not the good old country style way of doing things.

So,what do you think. Thanks, GFP

Who cares one way or the other. The argument against is that it destroys the integrity of the game. What integrity? drugs, steriods, womanizing, shameless self promotion, alcoholism, etc. Even the so called great players had their problems. It is a professional sports money making idea. In the end the difference between professional wrestling and other professional sports is that wrestling admits it is scripted. Go ahead and pay excessive amounts to associate with these people-I will keep my money in my pocket and my principles near me. But if you feel strong on this subject more power to ya-I am pretty indifferent about the whole thing.

we should find something interesting to discuss. I'm sure I am as concerned about his ego as he is mine. :)

no he can't ride along, he fell off the wagon. he lost his grip, slipped and fell back into the stupidity pit. so did bill clinton. and the last 100 salesmen that rang my bell. leave us alone - goobye go start a cult or something! if we really forgave everything, pontius pilate the 34th would be president. history needs bad guys for balance. :)

Yes, if we start honoring the bad guys,
why should any try to be good guys.
I know some "bad" guys slip through.

I think they should admit him right after they admit Shoeless Joe. I'd be willing to compromise to get Joe in.
