Yep, agreed.  And no worries.  Was just offering the info.  Never beat my chest about it, but I defended him enough over the years to say that his performance as a player should have been enough to get him in.  Knowing he was a bit shady, willing to look past that, with the most important fact, as we know it, was that he never bet against his own team.  But the information over the years, with this as the latest piece is sending me in the other direction.  I think history shows that this country gives people a 2nd chance.  I think if Pete came out years ago and admitted to all this, he'd be in the HOF, and we wouldn't have to hear about all this other crap.

I read that he admitted to it, but thought she was 16 (which was age of consent in OH).  She claimed they crossed state lines, as well, where age of consent would have been 17 or 18, and he denied that, saying it was only locally.  He was 34 at the time, with a wife and 2 kids at home.

I actually didn’t realize that until you mentioned it. It kills me to say this, because Pete Rose was a childhood hero of mine and I’m a lifelong Reds fan, but he’s a dirt bag.

I understand that. I just always thought it had to be in the field of play, whether he touched it or or.  Or the ball would have to bounce out of the end zone into the field of play. Could have sworn I’ve seen guys drop the kickoff and the end zone and just let it go for a touchback. It’s quite possible I’m wrong. Funny though, I’m getting downvotes for my opinion and trying to have a discussion on the subject.

If it lands in the end zone, untouched by the receiving team, it’s a dead ball and touchback, regardless of whether the kicking team recovers it or not. At least I’m 90% sure of that.

I thought it didn’t matter if it happened in the end zone.  Just a dead ball and touchback. As opposed to a muff and live ball at the 1 yard line.

I did in 2004 (we got beat that year, ugh). We were drinking all day and staying downtown so took cabs and trains. If you’re staying in Chicago, look into the train. It stops within walking distance of the stadium.

Thank you, Braxton Miller. Aside from Urban Meyer, the signature player that brought the program quickly back to prominence after Tatgate and the Nightmare that was the 2011 season.
