To answer questioning, Rose bet on the games while being a player.

If you read his autobiography, you would have known that.

But he said that he never bet against the Reds. He bet seven days a week on the Reds to win because he loved the Reds and he did everything in his power every single night to help the Reds get a win.

Well if you what you say is true and Pete Rose did bet on baseball during his playing days then he has no way to get into the hall no matter what he accomplished.

I just don't agree with that. People are bound to have different opinions on a subject such as this. If they can find that he didn't bet against the Reds, there is absolutely no reason to not allow him into the Hall of Fame. Even though that will be extremely difficult to determine, if it is proven he never bet against his team that doesn't challenge his integrity to the game and to the Reds while playing. Which also shouldn't exclude his name from HOF balloting and should have his name removed from the ineligible list.

I truly believe that he didn't bet against the Reds because of the way that he played. Obviously, some of the ways and natures of things that he did on the field while playing aren't custom things that other players were doing at the time, and that can be one indication that the guy cared so much about his team, that he wouldn't bet against them. He had an extra motivation to drive him to help his team win.

That's obvious to me simply identified by the way he played the game. He played it with an undeniable integrity to help the Reds win every game with motivation.

What he has done as a manager shouldn't affect how hard he worked as a player. So absolutely.

no matter how much he messed up off the field, he definitely should be in the hall of fame. No question about it.

Well he's kind of had it in me ever since i accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly" and replace "dog" with "son".

He's deserving in my opinion, but the way he acted off field, he def. won't get in.

Woops! Just realized the bump that I made.
