    A suggestion was made to do a poll on Pete Rose and if he belongs in the Hall of Fame.

    I'm not ashamed to say that "Charlie Hustle" belongs in the Hall Of Fame...He paid his fine and his due to the game of baseball...The NFL says,"It's about what they do on the field"..NBA says,"It's what they do on the court"..NHL says,"It's what they do on the ice"...But baseball says" It's how much of Faye Vincents ass you kiss"....Bunch of crap if ya ask me.....

    Yes, of course, like everybody there is pure as the driven snow, he's a baseball player not a saint. What he accomplished with some skill and a whole lot of hustle should be acknowledged.

    Pete Rose was baseball period. He wasn't especially gifted like some pitchers. He worked hard & didn't give up. He did not bet against his own team. Yes, he broke the rules but he has more than paid for it. I have always thought he wouldn't bow down to baseball commissioners & that is what is keeping him out of the HOF. I don't remember one person accusing him of using banned substances. He should be in the HOF now.

    They had the balls to ban Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays from MLB in 1983,both having already been inducted into the Hall of Fame, for taking jobs at an Atlantic City casino as greeters. Fortunately they were reinstated by another commissioner.These guys were baseball. All these guys, including Rose, were human and had faults.But on the field, they were the balls. These commissioners are over -stepping their bounds, as well as some of the sports writers as well, all of which have never proved anything with a bat and ball that would give them the authority to judge those that have proved themselves on the playing field. Same goes for football summa bytches too. ( Paul Hornung was banned in 1963 in the height of his career for a year for a few bets, like he would cross Vince Lombardi, )

    Based on the standards of behavior for today's pro athletes, Rose should be inducted.

    I think he belongs in the HOF. He was never accused of anything but hustling as a player. I could look the stats up but I am too lazy right now. I know he had a bunch of 200 hit seasons. He made the Red Machine go, though they had a lot of great players. IMO he was the straw that stirred the drink (not Reggie LOL)The Phillies had some pretty good teams in the 70's but never got over the hump to the World Series until Rose arrived. Yeah, for sure, he belongs in the Hall.

    Charlie Hustle would never bet against his own team. He always bet on them to win. Yes he should be allowed into the HOF.

    As a Pirates fan, I certainly didn't root for him playing for the Reds and Phillies. (Only in the All Star games.)

    But I always respected and admired his all-out approach to the game.

    Gambling issues aside, he legitimately earned his place in Cooperstown.

    Unless a future commissioner feels that way, I suspect Rose likely won't be inducted during his lifetime.

    That will be a shame.

    And a sham if McGwire and certain others get in before Pete.

    Lawrence Taylor took drugs and sold them and got caught buying them before he was voted in the HOF...He's in "The Hall"... Ray Lewis witnessed a murder in Atlanta...Some say he played a part in it...Headed to "The Hall"....Paul Hourning got caught gambling..In "The Hall"... You see where I'm going with this...If it's "what they do on the field" that gets them in "The Hall", then no one,IMO,done it better,for the length of time......
