So No Reality TV, News, or FB or twitter for this guy
I hope you aren't insinuating that I don't have any reasons for what I said. I also hope that it takes more than a free lunch with Pete to win your affection.
Look, the stats can never be erased, and I wish that the HOF was based solely on your accomplishments on the field, etc. - maybe someday it will be, and Pete will get the honor that he deserves. He is a HOF'er, and was one of the best to play the game, ever.
That being said, if you seriously think he is a good guy - you are delusional. He has a reality show for the same reason that Honey Boo Boo has a reality show - they are both pathetic and people want to watch them destroy themselves. That's entertainment. But hey, after he cheats on his wives, walks out on his kids, loses all of his money gambling, lies to fans, and charges for autographs.... He'll buy someone a lunch.
