Howard represents FTP and is obviously counted on to make good decisions for the pros who join the team. Fact is, Jimmy, as good a player as he is, does come across a little weird on TV. He IS very young, he HAS made some fairly negative statements about other pros, and it's *probably* true that his type of image is not the image FTP wants to promote. So he was just making a fairly reasonable business decision, even though the way he made it was impersonal and insulting.

But the point is, he wasn't saying it to Jimmy and wasn't trying to harm Jimmy. I blame the FT emailer for outing Howard and showing Jimmy an email Jimmy had no business seeing. Believe me, I've said tons of things about people behind their backs that I only said because I knew it wouldn't get back to them. We all have. Doesn't mean we're all scumbags.

The villain here is FTP, with Howard only being a minor accessory.

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

private joker is correct, in the sense that gobbo would have been infinitely more marketable if he hadn't mistakenly said so many ******ed things in front of a camera.

also, 1 vote for gobbos new title being superfreak, aussie millions is old news and now if you all haven't been paying attention gobbo has upgraded from tie-dye to "gobbo-style" of suits and whatnot.

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

Hey Jimmy, you come across really well in this interview:

"I've had success, there's so much variance in poker that I could still be a losing player. I think that I make correct decisions, and as long as that's true and I keep good bankroll management, I definitely can be a professional."

I think you sound modest and level headed here . . . HL is obviously a huge douche . . .

This is the nice way of saying

" The guy's a freak and a very weird dude. He is also quite young. I think we should stay away."





You should have went a different direction with your email.

Hi I am morbidly obese. My 5x Full Tilt jersey is guaranteed to be seen on TV from anywhere in the room. You get more bang for your buck by me wearing a tarp disguised as a jersey. People will have no choice but look at your logo as I waddle past them.
