It has little connection ot the real subject.. in this case Pete Rose.
I also would inquire whether you think it should matter who he bet against or if he actually made decisions to effect the outcome of the game? Do intentions matter or just the act? I don't think you're wrong about it being worse than steroids if he actually fixed games
, I just don't agree with how much worse. I really personally don't care if he's ever let back in the game to coach as long as his accomplishments as a player are honored in the HOF. I know I would like to see him spread his knowledge, but it's not about that. Pete has made some stupid choices, so I don't feel sorry for him. I feel sorry for baseball for ignoring what he contributed as a player.
