Answer Me This

Pete Rose broke the rules. He bet on baseball. He is also, unarguably, one of the greatest baseball players of all time. Today, he admitted that he bet on his Cincinnati Reds every single night, not 4 nights a week as he had originally claimed. Interestingly enough, Rose was making this admission as a means to show that he was not acting against the interests of the team, for example, by saving his closer for Saturday night’s game, in case he hadn’t bet on Friday night’s game.
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.”
Especially in today’s error of thuggery and criminal activity by athletes, Rose really isn’t the devil some make him out to be. He wanted to win. He was incented to. Is that so wrong?
