    Bonds and write in Pete Rose. I’ll continue to boycott MLB until those 2 are in HOF.

    Hall Of Fame doesn't seem to mean much anymore, look at some of those names. HOF should mean the best of the very best.

    And when it comes to some rule changes, they might be right. But you have to respect guys who set records, even if the records have been broken.

    Because at the time, they were the shit, the best, and no way around that.

    It's ignorant of people to say that, it's those players from the past that made these Sports into what they are now.

    right. and this is why you can't compare eras and superstars during those eras to each other.

    The problem with all the hall of fames is that they are compelled to put in a certain number every year. Some years there may be only one true hall of famer but they still put in a minimum of 5-7. Just crazy. It should be diluted by that standard

    Frankly I put Bonds in as the ONLY juiced hitter to get in.

    Clemens needs to be in too

    Not true. In MLB you need to be named on 75% of ballots to get in. There have been many years where no one was inducted into baseball HOF.

    That keeps the standard very high in baseball. The other leagues have minimum numbers every year. Definitely dilutes the hall of fame and makes it seem as though there are different levels/wings in each hall of fame. Jerry Rice, Art Monk and Andre Reed are all in the hall of fame, but Jerry rice needs his own wing.
