But thats only my opinion, i respect yours... but thats how i feel.
So now you want to say some forms of cheating are ok but others aren't? You can't have it both ways dude. Either you accept it was just the thing to do in an era or you consider all era's in baseball tainted by one thing or another. Gaylord Perry is a famous cheater and he even joked about it int he old timers games they used to have at the allstar break and he's in the hall of fame. Ty Cobb, one of the best players in history, was famous for playing dirty and he's in the hall of fame too. Like I said you can't have it both ways. You have to either condemn them all or accept that every era had its form of cheating and was just part of the game.
