And we have his word on that....
Rose spoke Wednesday with Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann on ESPN Radio to discuss the new Pete Rose exhibit that will be on display at the Great American Ballpark as part of the Reds Hall of Fame. The exhibit will be on display for 11 months.
"I bet on my team every night. I didn't bet on my team four nights a week. I was wrong," Rose said.
Rose said that he believed in his team so much that he bet on them to win every night.
"I bet on my team to win every night because I love my team, I believe in my team," Rose said. "I did everything in my power every night to win that game."
Pete was such a hero to me growing up. But the guy simply can't stop lying.
Don't forget he AGREED to the lifetime ban. He signed the papers with Giamatti.
First it was I never bet on baseball, then it was I bet on the Reds to win most of the time (except when he knew a starting pitcher wasn't up to snuff), then it was I bet on the Reds to win every game (foolish strategy BTW).
I'm at the point where I truly don't believe anything he says.
I really would not be that surprised if he bet against the Reds on occasion, just to cover his substantial losses.
Anyone who knows a patholgical gambling addict knows that there is virtually nothing they won't do.
Oh, I know he's sorry. But I think it's because got caught.
