Um, how about go clean up at the $20/$40 and shut the fuck up.
I’m just disappointed with people rationalizing it and even justifying it.
I played very few hands against Bill Perkins, who sat in a game I understood was rampant with professionals who were ghosting. I thought since many on the site were using pros to play for them (which was clear by the uniquely high level of play) at the time it felt acceptable for me to be playing. Unfortunately Bill got caught in the crossfire and I'm very sorry for that.
While I don't think it's fair that I’ve been singled out for something many were much more guilty of, I accept that as a role model for the poker community my punishment should be disproportionate compared to a normal player. I hold myself to a high standard of ethics and aspire to be devoid of inequity, but I still make mistakes and am sorry for my actions. I will do my best to behave better in the future.
Isnt that Doug from the Hangover?
This is just like Lance Armstrong's justification. If everyone else is juicing on the tour then why shouldn't I?
Yeah I was with lance 100% through all of the doping. Where he probably lost me is that apparently he was a big jerk about trying to cover it up and threatened to, tried to, or did ruin people's careers, while trying to do so. I'm not aware of all the facts, this is just what I've skimmed from reliable sources. So, he might be a jerk and he's technically a cheater but I still celebrate his unparalleled drive and success on two wheels. (Oh and I think he did a lot of good for cancer patients too)And IMO, he was dead right -- it was required in order to be competitive, and not just at the TdF. The people really at fault in cycling were the teams' management and sponsors, who knew what was going on and skated away unsullied. Including USPS, which really stunk.

If you guys are following this scandal, check out DAT Poker Podcast this week. They are interviewing Bill Perkins.
This is crazy! Apparently, they were using TeamViewer for screen sharing so that jungle man can ghost, but the guy still looks like he’s playing on camera.
