And that's why my comment started with the tongue in cheek statement: :"If I were in charge" (and an eye roll). ;-)

You're from Alabama, I'm from Louisiana. Misunderstandings are inevitable. ;-)

True. But the HOF has a standing rule that those on the permanently ineligible list are not eligible for HOF consideration. So Rose would have to be reinstated by the MLB or they would have to rescind the eligibility rule. I see the former as more possible than the latter.

I think this is part of the problem, though. When somebody gets a whiff of a scandal, the news and the public jumps all over it and we condemn the "offenders" in the court of public opinion. There are some serious repercussions to having one's reputation tarnished, whether it turns out to be true or not. Just off the top of my head, see Shoeless Joe Jackson, or the Duke lacrosse incident.
