Wayne Gretzky Responds

via Forbes,
"Listen, first of all, my wife is my best friend," Gretzky said. "My love for her is deeper than anything. The reality is, I'm not involved, I wasn't involved and I'm not going to be involved. Am I concerned for both of them? Sure there's concern from me. I'm more worried about them than me. I'm like you guys, I'm trying to figure it all out." Except for trips to Las Vegas, Gretzky said, he's no gambler. "I'm standing here trying to answer questions and it's not even me this is about," Gretzky said. "It's the frustrating hard part for me, but I understand. I'm a big boy and you guys have a responsibility and a job to do and that's fine."

When asked if his wife had placed bets for him, Gretzky was adamant in his denial. "Absolutely not. I never bet. Anytime there is a spouse involved, that's what people are going to think. She's her own person. "I think that had I been involved, I would have gotten a phone call. I'm pretty hard to hide."
