In all seriousness. I hope all of you peeps in LV are okay tonight.

My prayers are with you. Another lunatic on the loose.


I hope everyone is okay.

I wished that the lunatic was some 6'4" brute. I would pay Trooper trying to slap him.

As someone who has studied self defense (both hand to hand combat and concealed carry situations), instructors spend a lot of time discussing diffusing the threat by non violent means. First off, Frooper is about as intimidating as a ham sandwich. He stupidly does nothing in these situations to diffuse them, and in fact he does the complete opposite of threatening violence as a matter of self defense. If you're going to threaten you better be ready to make good on that threat. We here know Troop is all talk. It's only going to take one of these situations for someone to put his lights out. The guy is a frumpy dbag in this video.

I usually have him on in the background so maybe need to rewatch it. Looked like he was just walking by with his camera on...

Are we talking about the prudent decisions of a guy that sells hats but is wearing someone else's hat on his YouTube site?

His new friends will be on the strip every day as will Troop. What is the over/under this becoming a continuing saga?

Just saw Trooper's video from 2 days ago. He is a real bad ass to a 90 pound homeless guy that looks like he hasn't had a decent meal in weeks.

He was threatening violence on a guy that looked less intimidating than him. Trooper was actually backing away when he made this threats, but he never really looked like he was in danger IMO.

We all wonder how troop isn't broke yet but maybe he's crushing on the underground MMA circus. Getting paid to slap the dogpoop out of fools.
Dude is such a bad***

I can't believe you guys are doing this crap after what happened. Don't be such jerks. Take a day off if you can't be decent people.

Why would he make a video saying I don't know what to think about the shooting..500 people shot in your hometown and he doesn't know what to think

Mindless

What kind of thoughts would you want him to have? Have you actually heard anyone say anything genuinely new and insightful in response to this?

It basically seems like anything everyone is saying can be boiled down into three categories:
1.) Banal expressions of shock and/or sympathy
2.) Uninformed speculation
3.) Overtly political statements that would alienate half of one's audience

Trooper went with category (1), and I can understand why for him this is the best of a list of bad options.

Re: Las Vegas Poker Player Vlogs (NO 2017 REG ACCOUNTS)

Trooper's #PrayForVegas video was painfully boring to watch. Youtube says it's under 7 minutes but it felt like it would never end. To me it just came across as a way for Trooper to get a vlog posted with minimal effort. I watched/discussed coverage of the shooting for 20 hours yesterday and the only time I felt like I was wasting my time was when I watched that vlog. I did discover that Trooper doesn't know who Dan Bilzerian is though.

Somehow Trooper managed to turn that video into one about himself... Count the sentences that begin with 'I ....'

Trooper pretends to not know about anything outside of his little narcissistic world.
