Priceless coming from HL.

Gobbo, you should feel quite happy to be insulted by a site owner which proudly supports convicted felons, high stakes gambling cheats/hustlers, drug addicts, degenerate gamblers, unprofessional and ungentlemanly public spectacles and others with assorted sordid backgrounds.

Best of Luck in your hunt for a sponsor and in the tournament.
looooool seriously

you should have written back "Well, I know I'm currently fat, as opposed to previously fat like Howard, plus my nose hasn't fallen off yet unlike Messrs. Matusow and Flack, so I understand the decision."

lol @ everybody hating Howard for basically being honest and correct (not so much about gobbo, but about him being a horrible marketing choice). Do we expect everybody to be super nice in internal communication?

Also lol @ gobbo continuing to be a forum sacred cow.
I know you like to rip into other people who are still fat, but really this is kinda out of line. Even internally there are other ways to say "he's a fat white kid from the midwest with zero marketability in the current state of things" besides "he's a freak and a very weird dude"

Re: Beat: Am a freak and a very weird dude.

Funny story.

A few of us were walking out of the Crown the night after the FT. Howard was waiting for a taxi with his wife, saw gobbo and walked across to congratulate him and say how (if my memory serves me) something along the lines of how amazingly he played for someone his age. Funny.

Re: Beat: Am a freak and a very weird dude.

There's a difference between hating on Howard and the people who are laughing at him and support showing exactly what many have been saying about how they conduct their business.

You can be laughing at the situation and how Full Tilt handled it without thinking Howard necessarily shouldn't have said it.

Howard could have simply said no in his advisement also.

Hijack resumed.

It has more to do with people saying things that cause them problems with more than just the person in question.

It has more to do with the old saying about character being what you say and do when no one is watching.

Also, can we just make it official that both Howard and Annie Duke are overrated scumbags now?
