Yaromira Of yagra suspect of the game on the totalizator 05.08.2007 22:ya"Vo the time of exhibition tournament on golf Jagr Team Golf Tour 2007, that passed to Czech in the place Konopishte, Yaromir Of yagr several times was distracted to the telephone conversations, in course of which he in the English called different combinations of the numbers. Tabloid "shaft" assumed that, most likely, thus Olympic champion nagano counted on totalizator, reports television channel "sport". At the end of 90th Yagr he already was fascinated by igromaniyey (gambling addiction?) and according to the unofficial information left in the casino Of las-Vegasa of approximately 15 million dollars. Yagr then was justified: "4 never he indicated that 4 saints. Bad things mastered me. But all this already in the past ".
Does anyone know what this "totalizator" is? Online gambling website? I've heard before stories of some football (soccer) players in Europe being fined or suspended from their teams for using this "totalizator".
Personally I am not judging JJ in any way, it's his personal life. Just thought this was somewhat curious, during these boring summer days
the way i see it jagr is under contract with a nhl team in the united states and if he is back home or even outside of the usa for that matter what he does has no effect on the laws or his conduct here.
plus i say who cares anyway if he is a ref then we have a problem but being a player on the tail end of his career that wants to go out winning i highly doubt his gambling is gonna dictate the outcome of a game he is playing in.
plus i would like to add without changing the topic look at pete rose sure he bet on baseball and was a gambling addict but rose was a winner when he played as well as a winner when he coached so i dont think rose was throwing games to win money.
he was probably betting on his team to win and if thats the case i see nothing wrong with that.
its only a problem when the player is betting on his team to lose.
It shouldn't matter what he does in his personal life as long as he's not betting on hockey. Just cause he plays hockey doesn't mean he's restricted from betting on baseball or on casino games.
Also, the more he loses the more motivation it gives him on the ice to perform so that he can earn another big contract. Look at Darren McCarty. You don't think that guy wishes he could score 40 goals and earn a huge contract to pay off his gambling debts.
