Pete Rose

I don't see betting on your team to win as a negative.
Maybe it should be mandatory. It keeps the motives obvious and known.
It rewards good performance, punishes bad.
I know it's "betting on your team!" but if you're betting "to win" then I don't see an ethical problem with it from a baseball standpoint.

But if Pete was smart, he would start an on-line gambling site. He has the name recognition. He aught to just go with it.

Perhaps, perhaps not, but it was a serious rules violation, and one that Mr. Rose was doubtless well-aware. He made a conscious choice to jeopardize his career in favor of a behavioral addiction -- that's really pretty sad. That said, it is utterly ridiculous that baseball's all-time hits leader is not in the Hall. That is more a blight on the Hall than it is upon Mr. Rose.

Don't get me started on Michael "It's my brother's. He left it in there." Irvin making it into Canton before (if ever!) Art Monk!
