Daniel is good friend with Erick so he'll keep his mouth shut on this. Actually it's pretty hypocritical but it's what will happen.

DN talks crap on people but when it's someone like Barry or Erick he doesn't say anything.

Lol wtf has this got to do with Daniel? I'm sure he has spoken to Erick about this situation in private and advised him to pay up as a friend but you can't expect him to come out and slate one of his best friends in public less than 2 days after the situation has been made known to the community.

This is simple. I am based in Tijuana, Mexico and dont know who this Gangrene is, however, if you want, if he comes down to Mexico to play, I will buy his debt from you, lets start from 20cents on the Dollar.

Pm with info, pic and when he is in Tijuana, I will transfer you the money and let me worry about it.

He was President of Bellagio for a few years. I met him and he is a very nice guy.

He's the exception to the rule.

Where did the money go? Who has the millions that are missing? It seems a big-class action law suit by American players is in order?

Greed overcame every damn one of them, including Barry Greeenstein who has the limpest reason of all not to get his business straight.

They need to have this special break room at the Rio during the WSOP for the theives, drug dealers, sex offenders, cheats, stake horse scammers, trash talkers, slow rollers, Full Tilt pros, and pedophiles.

I agree, we should all unite along with the PPA and bring back 'Stoning' only we wont use rocks, we will use human excrement and animal faeces and continuously hurl $h1t at the proven scammers and thieves, i guarantee nobody will play or enable them anymore.

Just my 2cents

Re: Erick Lindgren Owes Over $100,000 for Fantasy League, Won't Pay

When I asked him about FTP money this summer, he said "I'm going to Ireland right after the series to work on it. We just want to get people their ****ing money. But obviously I can't go into any details about negotiations." So we should prob cut him some slack, he's obv been working super hard at that and hasn't had a free moment to go to the bank.

Don't worry about E Dog's ability to pay. He has Mrs E Dog's poker skills as collateral. He's just been real busy lately. On a serious note...why is it when I use to read that Erik was an outstanding sports better that made tons and tons of money betting games I knew not to believe it?

Now, you realize that so many of these players were total frauds. They were basically WWE characters pretending to be something they were not. Many of them are not even good players, they would be nowhere without their stolen or borrowed money, and they really live a pretty sad and pathetic existence by spending their days more cash poor than some 19-year-old college student.
This. Most of these guys made a ton of money during what we now know was a poker "bubble" and lived well beyond their means. Evidently they thought that they could just play TAG poker for their entire careers and get paid $30+ per hour just to grind on full tilt. Somehow they failed to realize that this boom period wouldn't last forever and that money doesn't fall from trees. The most sucky part of all for players like Lindgren is probably the realization that not only do they not have nearly as much money as they once thought they did, but they aren't even that good at poker. The internet generation makes players like Negreanu and Lindgren only slight winners anymore, if that.
