But in Full Tilt’s case I think a lot of the fault lies with anyone who put their trust in Lederer, Ferguson and Bitar to run that company. I think as a whole the shareholders should have gotten together and said, “Hey, why don’t we hire a real businessperson to be CEO, not some guy who was on his gramma’s couch a few months ago, someone who’s eating lobster on the player’s money.”
So in a way it’s their fault for not banding together and saying, “We need to fix this problem. This is no way to run a company.”
I really like Daniel, and I have a ton of respect for him as a person and a poker player. I don't think this is an appropriate comment though, passing the blame on to the shareholders is unreasonable.
