Dale Phillip - Daleroxxu dropped from Stars

I noticed this on twitter a second ago:

Dale Philip @Daleroxxu- "Just been dropped from PokerStars for the goal celebration against Spain. Not the best news before an 11 hour flight."

From what I can gather he was cheering loudly for Holland vs Spain and the local supporters were not happy about it. I don't know the full details but I seen a few tweets from him about it previously and then this today.

Does anyone know anything about this?

I thought the tweet was a joke, but then I checked for his name on Pokerstars and he wasn't on the list of team pro's

That seems a bit harsh. Most people I know were rooting for the Dutch.

Yeah I was too! There a good neutral team to support. They've got a good team with exciting players and the country hasn't really done anything to p*ss other countries off.

Seems pretty likely to be another one of those more to the story cases.

Never understood why they got him in the first place. Judging by his online personal only he was constantly confrontational and very arrogant. Didn't fit the PS brand imo.

Not allowed to have a personality anymore, Dale should have just tranquilized himself on the sidelines slowly slipping into a coma just incase he offended some Spanish tossers by having the gumption to celebrate a goal.

I totally disagree. He blogged frequently and is always on twitter interacting with people. This is what Team Online should be doing. (Obviously in addition to playing) If this is why they let him go they it's a horrible play by Stars.

Re: Dale Phillip - Daleroxxu dropped from Stars

Seems more likely he got dropped when his contract was up and he was just making a joke referencing the Matusow thread

I thought it was always blindingly obvious that his "arrogant" online persona was quite clearly a bit of a piss take.

I hope Stars come to their senses and reinstate the lad.

With Daniel Negreanu as the prime example of the above, he fits the brand perfectly. How hey can drop anyone for bad behavior and keep Daniel is beyond me.

Re: Dale Phillip - Daleroxxu dropped from Stars

It seems unlikely to just be about excessive goal celebration. Surely Pokerstars are not going to drop him just for that.

It seems plausible maybe he had been drinking/partying and maybe ended up being a bit loud and offended some of the wrong people. I think there is still information we do not know about this situation and in the coming days we might find out something which will make this a lot clearer because It seems very harsh that he has been dropped for something which deserves a minor slap on the wrist.

Pokerstars sponsor a lot of people! How much players win is probably not that high on their criteria for hiring.

Really don't see what Pokerstars has done wrong here. Spain just suffered one of the biggest shocks of the world cup and some random clown is taunting right in front of the Spanish? The guy isnt even Dutch!!!

His Twitter has been out of line for a long time, this is clearly just the straw that broke the camels back.

Re: Dale Phillip - Daleroxxu dropped from Stars

Dale's always been pushing the envelope on twitter, where the views expressed are his own, and not those of the company he's sponsored by. I found his tweets and blogs were a breath of fresh air in the dull corporate climate we're living in.

That said, it sounds like things got a bit out of hand in Marbella, but you have to remember that he was only there as a representative of Pokerstars. If your "boss" is paying for your hotel, air fare and/or buy-in, you need to be on best behaviour when in public. You can't keep biting the hand that feeds and expect to get away with it forever.

I'm gutted though. Team Online just lost one of its greatest personalities.

^ looks like one of the tweets insinuates he was putting two fingers up at I presume the Spanish fans that were also watching the game
