i think the media is blowing this whole thing out of proportion. they are like wannabe leaf fans.jumping on the band wagon. when the truth is told the media will be back on gretzky's side. they should have to be held accountable for reporting rumors. in north america a person is innocent until proven guilty. if all that was done is placing a few bets on the super bowl i dont see the harm.furthermore, i am sick and tired of the media trying to dig up dirt where none exists. until the investigation concludes they should not be able to report on the matter further.
