I have seen Rose play and he definitely earned his nickname, but disagree that alone should put him in the hall of fame. He made a huge mistake and should take the consequences. I didn't realize this had anything to do with OJ Simpson, but since you put it out thereI'll add what I think about that also. I don't think OJ should be in the football hall of fame either. But agree with it or not (and I don't agree with it), he was aquitted of all criminal charges so what leagalreason could they have for removing him. I don't believe everything is a race issue.

Absolutely don't think Bonds or any other known steroid user should be in the hall of fame---that includes A-Rod. Fully admit he deserved the name Charlie Hustle,but also remember (from my Grandfather) what gambling almost did to the game and totally agree with baseball's condemation of those who play baseball that are involved in gambling. I respect your opinion about Rose but disagree with it.
