    Re: Pete Rose worse than Barry Bonds?!

    By gambling, Pete Rose did not gain a competitive advantage nor did he gamble when he was a player.

    Bonds use of steroids had an impact on his ability to hit home runs.

    Pete did something against the rules of baseball, Barry didn't.

    The problem with Rose is that what he did violated a code that the players and managers live by. He committed the cardinal sin from within the sport.

    Re: Pete Rose worse than Barry Bonds?!

    Stupid question; when did Rose start gambling on baseball games? When he was a player or when he was coaching? Did he ever wager against the Reds while he was an active player? Did he ever wager against the team that he was coaching?

    I guess what I'm getting at is that if Rose never sought to intentionally throw a game, that minimizes the damage he potentially caused.

    However, by using steroids it could be argued that the users gained an unfair advantage.
