My Hands Are Tied–And Not In The Kinky, Fun Way

Friday, January 19th, 2007, 4:28 pm

Twice I’ve started long, impassioned posts about the chaos surrounding online poker after the Neteller arrests, and I’ve had to check myself because I’m not completely free anymore to spout off. I write about poker for UB now and I have to take that into account. Not that anyone has in any way censored me, but I don’t want them tarred with my hysterical ramblings.

That said, I went over to ESPN’s Poker Club page today and they still, STILL, have nothing about the arrests and what that might mean. NOTHING. Not even a link to a wire story in their News sidebar.

Nor did Jeffrey Pollack, the WSOP commissioner, say anything about online poker being under siege in his chat over at USA Today. A chat populated by some of the Stupidest Goddam People On The Face Of The Goddam Earth.

Their silence is rather deafening. Don’t they hear the cries of a beautiful golden goose being strangled? A goose that has laid quite a few golden eggs for them the last 4 years? Or perhaps they’ve just decided that silence is golden enough for them these days.

Think I’ll go stick a fork in my eye and get back to work.

    I do not know where to begin to assess the redundancies and obviousities inherent in the previous sentence.
