A-Rod gambling? Say it ain't so!

This guy needs to be careful. 252 million dollars doesn't go as far as it used to.

Isn't there harm if he's visiting "illegal" poker dens? We all saw what happened to Edward Norton in Rounders.

Not a problem, just another case of the media trying to create a story. Technically everyone playing a home game is playing an illegal poker game, if money is wagered. So a tough nose investigating reporter has found out that A-Rod likes to play poker, that's front page news for sure.:?:

What a freaking idiot. I mean can't a guy who makes that much money afford to travel to Atlantic City to do his gambling?

Heck, he could have weekly games in his apartment with other high rollers if he wanted to and avoid the chance of getting busted.

With his name on the front page of the newspaper, he's now posterboy for cleaning up the illegal gambling dens. You don't think the mayor noticed do you? :rolleyes:

Wow paparazzi all over A-Rod. Who cares, honestly. Whenever I play "illegal" poker with my friends the local press never wants to report about it.

the thing about "poker dens" is that is where the best action is as far as the game goes. some of the most high priced cash games are held regularly there. personally if Arod likes to spend his time playing poker whats the big deal. I highly doubt anyone would arrest Arod if caught in a game, their baseball means too much to them.

Well, A-Rod can take his 252 million and come on over to my place...we'd be happy to let him in on our game...he could play about 50 million games with us with that money. If he's playing with lowlifes in some very high stakes games, that's very dangerous, but if he's playing with some of the guys, I see no problem with that.

This is why Paulie won't go to a big market, you deal with the **** of the press following you around constantly. Paulie only has to deal with them in the clubhouse here. (and as much as I love Paulie he doesn't handle them quite well there as he ****s out of his mouth.)
