I support inducting Rose into the HOF based on his PLAYING CAREER accomplishments. I do not support him being allowed back into baseball in any way, shape, or form.
The Cobb stuff really needs to stop imo. One non-respected poster brings his name up and all of a sudden Cobb is a topic? You could add up the drive, determination, and heart of all 25 men on a team today and it might equal what Cobb had inside of him, day in and day out, imo. He could dish it very well, but more importantly, he could take it also.

In Saint Louis that summer (1920), three cowboys were ushered into the Yankee dressing room to meet Ruth. They told him they had ridden three days on horseback to catch a train in Wyoming. "Babe Ruth," one of them drawled, I’d have ridden all the way to Saint Louis to see you hit them home runs." - Kal Wagenheim
