    OJ, Tyson, Vick, ?

    Not just for infamy of the crime, but for length of the fall.
    Rae Carruth is on the Mountain for the infamy, but he was a nobody before the murder.

    Not to stir a shitstorm, but Shoeless Joe?

    If we're going for length of fall, and not judging the merits of the cases...

    Otherwise, Pete Rose.

    That's a very Buckdub-ian pull there. Does Bonds go up there if both the grand jury returns an indictment on him AND he's convicted?

    Also in consideration: Mark Chmura, Jose Offerman, Dany Heatley?

    Too bad we can't put Ray Lewis up there. Winning the Super Bowl MVP the year after two people accidentally fell on knives in front of him and died kind of eliminates the whole "Fall from grace" angle.
  7. Ty Cobb's gotta be on the ballot.

    But not with the baby-sitter in the hot tub on prom night.

    Devil's in the details, as it were...

    I'll stick with my Rose vote, however, and we'll call it the MRSC -- Modern Era.
  11. Mr. Chmura?


    ...got a minute?

    I thought that Cobb was just an evil, miserable excuse for a human being. Other than the gambling allegations, what illegal activities did he partake in? Sadly, being a racist pig doesn't count since it isn't legally outlawed.
