I doubt that the reason he doesn't wear shoes at tv tables is b/c he wants attention.

This is an example of a bad thread. Your going to make a thread about a guy based on one persons opinion. It's all very subjective anyways.

I found his whole explanation of telling a reporter he wanted to fight Antonio a bit strange

Is the reason he doesn't wear shoes to do with being "mindful" (new ager philosophy thing), melts my brain the way he treats his father too.

What part of his behavior was objectionable?
I don't believe he said a word in the whole 10 minute clip..
You must believe it isn't classy to bluff?

Re: "Antonio Esfandiari is a massive douche."

As I listened to Lexís first interaction with Antonio I can see where their wires may have crossed.

Antonio invited Lex to dinner and Lex wanted to bring along four other friends.
By Antonio inviting Lex itís implied that heís picking up the check. And by Lex inviting 4 of his friends - Antonio could have thought that Lex wanted him to pay for everyone.

What Lex could have said was ďI really appreciate the invite but Iíve already got plans with some friends. Iím not going to blow them off. If I can bring them along great, if not maybe we can grab dinner tomorrow night?Ē

Thereís always two sides to a story.

That being said, I wouldnít be surprised if Antonio big times people all the time.

Iím sure there are times when Antonio is a jerk and other times heís cool but isnít that true with just about everyone?

Lex seems like the sort of person who frequently runs into *******s - and you know how that saying goes...

I've only seen the interaction between esfandiari and his father from tv shows and imo he treats him like a gimp. I fear my Father, probably from all the correcting he had to do on my behaviour.

Led may have misunderstood, Antonio. But it seems like alcohol may have a lot to do with the interactions. So. who really cares? No one is going to court.

It seems Antonio likes to 'big-time' people and likes attention a bit too much. He's probably still a alright person in general, but he's no angel.
Always disliked Esfandiari's "Look at me now haters, I'm famous, look at me"-attitude. It's just so obnoxious. High school is over, Amir.

OP is the worst - such a feminine topic to get excited about.

So Antonio invites him to dinner and Lex doesn't want to, but instead of just saying no thank you he says go **** yourself you're worthless??? I'm gonna stop watching there, Lex really seems like the douche, and we're getting his side of the story.

Re: "Antonio Esfandiari is a massive douche."

The initial dinner interaction is cloudy at best. They were both on different wavelengths. The worst is when other players call Esfandiari "great at chatting up the fish" or whatever wording they use. He is very patronizing (is that the word) and just ingenuine. When he loses he says something to diminish it to others, and when he wins he is fake as hell to others. Basically he has a need to look good all the time instead of being someone who is looked to as a good guy.
