    People who broke rules to get an athletic advantage over opponents are cheaters...gambling doesn't qualify. Although I imagine those on the wrong end of those calls made by that basketball ref felt they were cheated out of possible scores/wins, and fans of Pete Rose feel cheated out of ever seeing him in the's not the same as illegally edging out your competition. IMHO

    I hope I never see the day where Pete Rose is allowed to enter the Baseball Hall of Fame. Rose did everything to deny, lie, and obstruct the investigation. Rose gambled that he could beat the system, and lost.
    I can see why Rose is upset at MLB. You have other players who admitted or got caught using steroids and their records stand. McGwire should've been banned from MLB too. How any team would want McGwire as a coach is beyond me. That's like having Lance Armstrong be your coach for a cycling team. A pedophile priest be your youth director at your church.

    I watched a game of the Detroit Pistons with Larry Brown coaching. Tim Donahee was a referee that was calling fouls on non-contact plays against the Pistons during the first half. Tim Donaheshe called yet another non-contact foul in the third quarter and called a Pistons player an A HOLE. Larry Brown ran out on the court screaming at Tim Donahee "You can't talk to a player like that." Larry Brown must have said "You can't talk to a player like that" ten to twelve times! i'll never forget that because it was one of the last years that home games were shown over antenna television.

    Pete Rose never cheated! He gambled on other games! Never on any games in which he could have any effect on the outcome. The best god damn hitter in baseball is not a cheater. He had a gambling problem and MLB is holding a grudge because of it. Its a shame.

    Also I get steroids/PED's not being allowed in contact sports due to injuries but if someone wants to take them in baseball so be it, I knew plenty of guys that took them and still didn't get any better you don't inject talent it helps more woth recovery, strength and endurance which is why so many older athletes take them to stay in the game and you would too if that was your dream. If you claim this is a lie then you wouldn't last in pro sports because PED's are all through them

      Spygate was just to make an example of the Patriots so the rest of the teams would follow new rules that restricted where u could record from. Basically the rest of the league was doing it but the Patriots got in trouble. Deflate gate was bullshit that simple physics could explain and there are other teams like the Steelers and Cardinals who were actually caught deflating the footballs to get an advantage. Just shut up.

    Pete Rose didn’t cheat. He never bet against his team and he never bet on games where he played. Baseball has screwed him. I understand if he would receive a temporary ban but a lifetime ban, COME ON BASEBALL! When baseball needs him, they use him to benefit the game, but he wasn’t allowed to attend his own son’s major league debut. That is ridiculous! He does so much for baseball and the MLB treats him like trash.

    Dude in what world is what Pete Rose did cheating? I will never understand this. He was well before my time but records don't set themselves. The guy is the all-time hits leaders (among other records), if he was cheating by trying to throw games then he wasn't very good at it, downright terrible and as a manager even if he wanted to there is only so much you can do to affect the game without getting your players on board to help. I'll take someone betting on the sport they play/coach in over some juiced up guy hitting 70 homeruns. Or over the guys who cheated with the biggest advantage in history and that's the players up until the 1990's snorting coke before and during games. Those to me were the biggest advantages any players have gained from cheating in baseballs history and yet many are in the Hall of Fame, go figure.
