I met Franco Harris years ago and he was fine. If you want to add football I would heartily endorse Lynn Swann for the list.

Mays was the first name that came to mind. I've heard the same about Cobb and Ted Williams, but not from any personal experience.

The correct answer is no one. Who else tried to hurt fans with a baseball? Destroy teammates property with a bat? Try to run over kids on Halloween? Expose himself to a teenage girl? Mays, Jackson etc. could be rude, but none are in Belle's league.

Default good distinction

Being a grumpy jerk to some people at a show because of whatever's going on in his life should hardly be the sole criterion for whether an athlete is a true bastard... we've all had our down moments. With most of these guys you hear anecdotes from the other side about how they were nice at least some of the time.

We're talking the REAL bad actors here.... the Hal Chases and OJs of the HOF.
(or as Lyle said about Munson - not moody (which implies you're nice some of the time), just plain mean. Who are they?

If Bonds ever gets in, by many accounts he'll be right up there. Clemens too.

Not really fair to judge ones character unless you knew them personally. Look what happened with Cobb

MY BIG CONCERNS ABOUT AMERICA:

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.
