Perhaps you can't, probably because you lack the imagination and
conceptual apparatus required to do so. We posit an argument and
your response is to call us names.

Anything and everything can be "bad." The question is not whether
it can be bad, but whether it was bad. If you have any information
that Rose compromised his team's goals in any way in the name of
personal greed, then by all means bring it forward. All the

First off, he didn't walk away. He signed an agreement to be banned

Besides, we certainly know what would have happened if the truth had
come out. We know for a fact what the truth is rather than simply
evaluating the evidence ourselves. It would have been proven that he
gambled on baseball and on his own team, and he would have been banned
permanantly. Which is what has happened anyway. So who can complain?
Justice has been served. The truth has been upheld.

But I guess a group of folks like y'all with your morality could have
always hoped to supress the truth and somehow weasel out from under it.
Who cares what he did if he could get off, right? Pete and O.J.

I thought he just played first... I mean, I know you think of yourself
as many people. But Pete was always just one player.
