    Playing many Sunday's with all or part of the above mentioned group for that 3-4 year period was fantastic. The experience, knowledge and table presence of these great players was unbelievable. But, more importantly after our afternoon sessions we would all gather in the diamond lounge and critique each other and offer points of advice. I remember, sometimes it got rather heated.

    Caesars management hated us........and they really turned up the heat. And some of us are still paying the price today.

    $nakeEye$ you were the undisputed leader of that group.

    The vast amount of information, betting strategies, grips, shots and new fresh ideas about the game of craps passed from player to player amongst our group was just off the charts. Everyone benefited! Today, if you could stack every internet craps message board up and combine them ALL.......the knowledge I gathered from that group "at the tables" would dwarf the boards by a country mile.

    It's a shame 99.9% of newbees will never stumble across an experienced group like we had. But SE, you have forgotten more about the game of craps than most people on this board will ever know. And by not sharing your knowledge here and on other boards.......the only loser is the new player looking for guidance.

    What a pile of shit. His expertise was booted off the real (Heavy's ) di board. He (you all) managed NOT to stay under the radar in AC. His condescension has irritated di and non di alike here. He has to work a job in his retirement because he is not an AP in any form in Vegas. Stick up for him all you want, his life and actions speak louder than your words.

    Yes, the " Good Old Days " -

    Forever GONE - BUT - not FORGOTTEN !

    The ONLY " GUIDANCE " that new players here will glean is how to be insulting and vindictive -

    Which is MOST unfortunate !


    Thank you for the kind words -

    However they NOW fall on deaf ears here -

    HERE - where it ALL began quite a few years ago !


    Ignore the naysayers , especially here , THEY NO IT ALL -

    And do YOUR self a huge favor -

    MOVE ON from this cesspool -

    It is NOT worth the effort to fight these non-believers !


    Good Luck to You !

    In my case I chose to "fast forward" through the thread once it went off the rails. Jacob's post caught my eye so I backtracked to see what I missed. I decided the food fight was not worth getting involved in, so I let my silence speak for itself. As LtCmdr Data would say, ...


    I would like to see an "Ignore Thread" option added although I can, and probably should, live without it. I have discovered two work-arounds.
    1. Browse through the posts page by page, which I have called fast forwarding. This technique gives you a chance to catch something that did not get sucked into the quagmire.
    2. Select the last page of the thread from the page menu at the top and bottom of each page of a multi-page thread. This will mark all of the posts on preceding pages as read so the thread will not show up on your list of recent posts until somebody actually does make a new post to it.

    SO - Am I to interpret YOUR response that THIS forum of YOURS is " Make Believe " -

    And THIS FORUM and REAL LIFE shall NEVER intertwine ?


    Personally, I find that kind of amusing on one hand -

    As you are advocating people can hide behind their keyboard and profess to be what they are NOT in REAL LIFE -


    Yet - when they are challenged - THEN and ONLY then - does Mommy Bear come to the aid of her little frail and helpless cubs !


    I can see now why this forum is SO popular to the " Keyboard Crapsters " who dominate here -

    They can rest assured that their Dark little secrets will NEVER come to see the light of day !


    You ALL deserve each other !

    THAT is MOST unfortunate -

    THAT - among OTHER reasons is why WE DO NOT play with visitors coming into town -

    THEY can come and then GO -

    Whereas - WE - have to maintain our integrity to " Play Another Day " -

    A PRIME example as to WHY I / we elected to dissociate ourselves from " HR'R " and his cohorts -

    MORE " DRAMA " at the tables with HIM -

    Than there EVER will be HERE !


    Flying " Under the Radar " is as MUCH integral to casino games as to being proficient / having an advantage -

    There is NO ADVANTAGE when the rug is swept out from underfoot !

    < SNIP > AJ - 4 UR I's ONLY !

    Good luck, AGAIN !

    And I am only a phone call away if needed !

    If memory serves me correctly -


    The ONLY time we got heat was when Obie1 and Six Shooter were at out table in AC at Caesar's on that Sunday afternoon-

    When they raised the table min from $5 or $10 to $25 -

    EVERYONE wanted to bail - but I suggested we stick around -

    THAT obviously - in retrospect - was a mistake !

    The " TEAM / GROUP " NEVER got HEAT when I was there -

    WE were looked upon by the likes of Kevin and other bosses as proficient shooters / knowledgeable players who commanded and gave respect to ALL at our tables -

    Regardless of their proficiency or lack thereof !

    Contact me , if interested, for further info regards as to what I intentionally <SNIP> from this post !

    FOUL! Illegal shift: 15 day penalty. You don't get to take a sentence out of context and interpret it to your liking. Must I refresh your memory? This is your post to which Jacob was responding:
    Deny it till you're blue in the face if you will, but there is an implication of "a scene" occurring at Red Rock should $snake and anti$nake come into close proximity there, or even anywhere for that matter. I think it not much of a stretch to presume said "scene" might well include bodily harm. This is Papa Bear speaking: THAT is the reason for the foul.

    OK, I have no authority here so my penalty is unenforceable. Still, I offer as support for my position
    the other food fights on the forum, almost all of which Jacob has stayed out of, as well as the entire Craps Stories & Trip Reports Section.

    You mean the Russian chick who thinks I'm irresistible might not be Russian...or not be a chick...or want me only for my mind?! :eek: Say it ain't so, $nake. Who'd a-thunk it! :(


    PS. Congratulations BTW. Even with maximum effort I could not allow silence to speak for itself on this one.

    I agree fully with your take on it all.

    He knew exactly what he was saying....it was a statement of intended intimidation! Whether he actually intended on carrying it out is of no consequence......it was a physical threat period!

    That behavior has no place here, or anywhere else really....Jacob did exactly what was called for, and deserved!

    Hear, hear! Shades of Sarah Palin / Gabrielle Giffords. Posting pictures on a public medium depicting someone in the crosshairs clearly suggests a desire to have the target shot. Of course Ms. Palin cannot be held legally responsible for the actions of Jared Lee Loughner, nor do I have reason to suspect we have a Loughner wannabe posting or lurking here. Still, the Giffords incident shows that some looney tunes require but a few notes to burst into song.

    One could easily see Snakes statement suggesting physical harm to TDV, but you’ll no find any words suggesting physical harm. Maybe all Snake wanted to do was have a man to man talk with TDV. Had Snake said he was going down to the Red Rock and kick TDV’s ass, beat him to a pulp, well yea then Snake’s actions are pretty clear cut. Snake’s probably did cause TDV some uncomfortable moments for awhile until he realized Snake was just blowing of steam, just like he has before.

    This board has a section titled Terms and Conditions. If you go to sect. 2 subsections c, second paragraph, it list what is and is not permissible, and what action Jacob can take if he wishes to take any action. Now I am not sure how Jacob became aware of Snake’s posts, as I don’t see Jabco reading every post on this board, so I am assuming he was notified. Not that long ago one member posted he was coming out to LV to beat another members ass. Those words were specific, yet I do not recall any admonishments coming from Jacob. Now it could be Jacob wasn’t made aware of that particular situation. In this case both parties realizing the error quickly made their amends, and nothing more came from it.

    You can easily come away with the impression the internet is like the old Wild West, and you can say anything without impunity, and nobody is going to do anything because this is the Internet. Truth is, it just all depends. Take a minute and read the below link, particularly pay attention to section c. It just may save you from enduring a lot of unnecessary stress and expense.

    It wasn't "someone" in the cross hairs.That scenario was developed by the fake news industry.
    The cross hairs were in specific Democratic voting areas where it was "targeting" turning the vote. Nothing more nothing less. What you describe is the distortion created. As for Giffords again some liberal hack of a newsworm, or a entire newsroom as they call it linkiong the shooting of Giffords to Palin's crosshairs article. Some sick minded liberal people politicizing a tragic action, of another liberal.

    keep in mind these shootings are perpetrated by the left in this country and I believe it all to be to further a agenda called Globalization.

    This thread was addressed to me so I've been following it.

    Don't think I saw the other post you are referring to. Please report that sort of thing if it seems like it was said with any sort of seriousness.

    Read all the dialogue leading up to his post, and you can draw no conclusion other than he was intending it as an intimidation post...period.

    "I'm gonna make you an offer you can't refuse!". No real words of a physical threat there either. :)
