    Pete Rose: "I bet on my team every night"

    Pete Rose revealed Wednesday that he bet on the Reds "every night" while he was manager of the team and that the Dowd Report was correct when it said he did so.


    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.

    On the one hand, if he was just straight-up with everyone years ago and admitted he bet on baseball, he could have easily been in the Hall of Fame by now.

    On the other hand, betting on your own team is low... it's really, really, really low. If he bet on the other teams but at least had the ethics to stay from his team and any teams he was playing against, then that's different.

    I saw him in Vegas at an autograph signing, and no one was waiting on line to meet him. He looked really pathetic.

    This is old news. He said that numerous times.. I guess the media has to find something, with the season about to start.

    Actually it isn't, he said he bet on baseball before but not on the Reds. Now he's admitting to betting on his team every night.

    No I remember him saying on a couple of occasions that exact sentence. "I BET ON MY TEAM EVERYDAY, I WAS THAT CONFIDENT" I can name two places where he said it. Once on Best damn sports show...And again on "Quite Frankly"

    usually when people bring up something that no one has heard of, they bring the link. i don't think you're making it up, you're just mistaken

    trust me, if Rose said this on the SAS show (an ESPN show mind you) - ESPN would be all over it
