This is what I wrote on another forum about Rose:

A lifetime ban should end when the person is dead. I have no issues with him being allowed in when he passes.

As for the whole "never bet against the Reds" argument... why would you believe a man who lied for decades? Rose would sign a turd if it got him $20. Besides, even if he DIDN'T bet against his own team, what happens if maybe he loses a few bets and owes his booky a lot of money. What if the guy says, "Al right Pete, if you shave a few runs off here or make a few bad choices there we can call it even." Petey boy isn't exactly a virtue of morality.
