good point

Someone brings up the Bonds/Home Runs/Hall of Fame thing with sports guy and he answers with a point of view i hadn't really thought of before.

Leif (Kelowna, BC, Canada): What are your thoughts on Barry Bonds passing Babe Ruth and maybe even Hank Aaron? Even if he took steroids, they were technically still legal in MLB when he started the juice.

Bill Simmons: (2:08 PM ET ) I think his records should count and he should be in the Hall of Fame. And I think his plaque should clearly state that there's overwhelming evidence that he may have used steroids from 1999 on. I also think Pete Rose should be in the HOF. The whole point of the HOF is to have a place that captured every significant moment that ever happened in baseball, good and bad. If you landed from a UFO, you would go there and learn about the game. Not having Bonds and Rose there seems dishonest to me. Like we're hiding something.

How do we really know Babe Ruth DIDN"T use steroids? or use a Cork bat?

We don't know for how can we judge Bonds or Pete Rose?

Pete Rose still made baseball history....Betting on games had nothing to do with his history in MLB or his ability to play (POINT BLANK!) ....


To leave them out is like saying THEY never happened....and I just think that's FUCKED up!

Those 2 probably dreamed of playing since they were kids....


and to think these guys can never use Hydroxycut or OTC diet supplements because it's considered CHEATING........
