Wayne Gretzky has been drawn into a gambling controversy because his wife Janet Gretzky has been alleged to have made non-hockey related bets in a gambling ring.Many members of the media are trying to link Wayne Gretzky to the scandal and have called for him to resign as head of Canada's Olympic hockey program.This is completely insane. Wayne Gretzky has not been named in the scandal and he has denied any involvement in the gambling ring.We will take Mr.
Gretzky at his word and give him the benefit of the doubt. During his hockey career, fellow teammates knew Gretzky as a model human being and hockey player. Players have said that Gretzky didn't even play cards.
Mr. Gretzky has been an ambassador to the game of hockey. I believe that he represents everything that is good about sports.
Until I see credible and irrefutable evidence that he was involved in any wrongdoing, he will receive my support.Wayne Gretzky has raised millions of dollars in the United States and Canada for various charities. Gretzky has represented the game of hockey with class and dignity.
I believe Gretzky brought credibility to his sport and deserves our support. Gretzky has been kind to the media and this is how they repay his kindness. It's shameful but not surprising that the media has acted like a bunch of thugs and goons.Mr.
Gretzky should accompany team Canada to the Olympics in Turin. Hopefully his team will bring home the gold. We salute Mr.
Gretzky and everything he stands for..Anthony B.
