42. Rose is much worse IMHO.

What Rose did cuts to the heart of the game and anybody's ability to believe in it. By betting while managing, he could directly manipulate the outcome. He might swing it one way or the other without even realizing it.
I am no fan of steroid users. However, they still have to have a modicum of talent to hit the ball. In addition, the outcome they can consistently produce is not guaranteed.
Rose couldn't guarantee an outcome, but with the ability to move and/ or remove players, he could really affect it.
