Go Homie Go! Lol, that was actually quite funny.
As for HL not saying anything, don't you think this quote from Doyle's blog is kind of reasonable Daniel?

Quote:
If you have never been involved with a FEDERAL investigation, you probably don't understand. If you were looking at going to jail and your lawyers keep telling you to remain silent, would you say anything? When the government says "anything you say can and will be used against you", it means exactly that. All of the Federal Agencies have proved it over and over.
Rest of the points Daniel made were spot for the most part.

Liked this blog a lot more than the last one tbh, if he really feels the need to address this issue, DN is much better of dealing with the subject of FT in a satirical and entertaining than in an aggressive and overly emotional way imo.

Good watch.

Could we sticky a DN Vblog thread please? Would be convenient imo, the man is interesting/entertaining.


Please do not tell me you actually made an appearance in a corny high school kiddie thriller Daniel!¡!

I just loved the popcorn moments when that guy confronted Howard on the whole situation of Full Tilt. And "When we're ready"? Any good time, between the last couple of months would have been pretty good.

That was great, Daniel is becoming as entertaining off the felt as he is on.

we should make a special thread for Daniel's vid since he is gonna post almost every week. Let's avoid creating a new thread every week for this and keep this one for all his vids.

re: *** Official Daniel Negreanu video blog thread - post new videos here ***

Didn't like this one so much, he's a funny guy but he really isn't hiding what his goals are for these videos. Also pretty lol how he makes GBT look supersketchy while aside from "fixing a football match" (btw GBT did NOT fix a football match btw, Bernard Tapie did, thinking the 2 are the same sounds very misinformed) the guy is also known for running a company that is one of the best in the business of saving bankrupted companies and has experience in online gaming. Sounds like a good "guy" to run FTP to me.

Also pretty funny how he really doesn't seem to try to hide that he doesn't give a **** wether FTP is saved. Now that's purely rational for DN seeing he's employed by Pokerstars, but he should try and hide it a little bit better for the fans .

LOL! I just loved it when Daniel is eating popcorn and is wearing his bathrobe while watching the meet up with Howard Lederer from last summer.

Hahahahahaha!

No he certainly isn't. He is just piling on the bad guys so dolts think he is a good guy. He's a quack who is half decent at PR but only because the public is so dumb.

re: *** Official Daniel Negreanu video blog thread - post new videos here ***

Re Jason Somerville, he almost said "really gay hand" at 1:55, then "caught" himself.

For some reason I found that to be kinda funny.

Then the ****-homie reference... which OTOH was kinda lame. But at least he's trying.

I fast-forwarded through the Full Tilt "5 steps" stuff because he's about 6 months late with all of that.

Otherwise, it might not be smart to talk about your man-boobs, then wear a tight, thin T-shirt to show them off.

Overall, though, very well done. A-minus.

??? It's not so easy to manage your image as successfully as DN. Nobody else in poker has come anywhere close.

D-Neg is a hero for being one of Poker's BIG voices who's not afraid to talk about Full Tilt and all cheaters (and cheating) in the game. He will always be one of the truly good guys in poker. If there were a few more big names that weren't afraid to speak out like he has, that'd help keep poker more on the straight and narrow.

Keep it up D!!

Sounds good.

While you're at it, since this thread will be around for a while, it would be great if you could correct the spelling of his last name - Negreanu.

Yes its just that, IMAGE.

Most people who know DN/have played with DN when the cameras aren't rolling could attest to his phony nature.

Whatever, dude. Maybe he's a "good guy" IRL, maybe he isn't. It probably depends on who you ask, like with most people.

In any case, we've seen a whole bunch worse things than "phony" lately.

All the pros know they now have dirty money yet are saying/doing nothing.

They are all hiding away like weasels.

No, I think he's owning the main culprits and having fun doing it.

so you think its OK for all the FTP pros to remain silent while playing high roller events with dirty money?

When you say "main culprits" you seem to be agreeing with me the rest are not innocent.
