It shouldnt be. Taking steroids should be the MAJOR sin.
Why? You think betting on their own sport is something the pros should be doing, specifically in games involving their own teams? That would be chaos, and I would question the legitimacy of the league itself. I've also tried to understand how what Pete Rose did is generally accepted by baseball fans right now, while PED use (a constant in baseball for 50 years) is hugely frowned upon. Could you explain that to me?
And if PED use ever became a "major sin" in the game, then you'd have to pull a ton of games out of the HOF right now. Do you really want to open that pandora's box?
Pete just has more balls than Bonds and was man enough to admit his mistakes.
Yeah, that Pete Rose, he's all guts. What with denying what he did for 15 years, and then changing his story on a book publicity tour to make some money.
