It's this attitude that makes tabloid journalism so successful. Humans can be so great, but this facet of the human condition is neither healthy or progressive. In fact it's downright destructive. What gives us the right to know what happens in a celebrity's sex life? The halo effect is a fallacy, yet people see that imaginary halo and run with it - and god forbid if that halo slips and the moral outrage brigrade get hold of you.

Why can't people let other people get on with their lives without the need for scadenfreude to make their ****ty lives a little bit better? Put yourself in that person's shoes for a second - sure it would be nice to be recognised, loved, asked for pictures etc. but I know it would get old fast and sometimes I would just want the 'fans' to leave me in peace.

I've gone off on a bit of a tangent here, but the whole celebrity obsession in our respective countries is ridiculous and i'm baffled as to why people think like this.
Only reply in this thread that speaks the truth. Daniel is a pretty friendly guy, probably one of the most friendly guys out there in poker. He makes one wrong move and BOOM the unhappy frustrated whiners circle around him like flies around ****.

it's the wsop, thousands of people have asked him for a picture, now he's relaxing at a cash table and people keep asking him pictures while he's still playing

no offence to OP, but DN is only human

Anyways, so I approached Negreanu and Greenstein and asked them if they'd be okay taking a quick picture with us.. ..
TBH, I think Daniel's range is pretty polarized towards gf/romantic/personal time here. OP's equity just isn't enough to continue here although I think it is very close. It almost feels like a coin flip, either DN is mooshy with his gf bcuz he wants that time alone w/ her or he's mooshy bcuz nobody has bothered him for an autograph yet. Given DN's image, I'll say the former is true, fold, and wait for a better time to take picture with him.

That's what happens when you stick your face out to the public to become famous. Like Pokerstars Did You Know. Hey Daniel did you know when you force your image on us poker players you can expect to be hounded for autographs?

You are such a fake, Daniel. A true arrogant douche would have called the tard out and made fun of them, while bragging about what a baller they are. Apologize?!? That's something only genuinely nice people do. Would Annie Duke or Hellmuth APOLOGIZE?!?! You should be kicked out of the Poker Hall of Fame.

Unlike the guy who left to get "drinks", I am revoking my offer to let you sleep with my wife, or at least demanding $200 to get "lost" for the requisite 2 hours.

OP u should find the stuff DN used to post on RGP before he got famous. if u think he's immature and cocky now, u'll see that these days he's tame in comparison.

having said that, it doesn't mean he's not also a nice and gracious guy, which according to most people he is.

I respect his playing ability and he probably isn't the worst human in the world but he NEVER shuts the f up. Its all babble too. He used to not be like that. I find it incredibly irritating.

On RGP Daniel was one of the first, if not the first to ever call out Annie Duke for being a piece of trash and for that I'll always give him props.

FM, dont be so hard on negreanu. put yourself in his shoes for a minute. over the past 9 years hundreds of people keep interrupting him every where he goes. grocery stores, malls, restrooms, retaurants....maybe it can be a bit annoying at times.

I just read the whole thread and will not be making fun on the wife's pale skin, calling DN a douche or a legend, asking for pics, or talking about whether celebs owe it to anyone to take 2 minutes to take a picture.

ANobleGent is quite kind.
