    I haven't seen the video on Utube so I don't have any opinion. Just got surprised. I don't visit GIA offten so didn't know what to think.

    LOL -- nah, I'm sure a lot of people have the same question. You just did them a favor by asking it, that's all. :)

    GIA = Gambling Industry Association.

    I haven't had time to read through the thread in it's entirety about J.Todd. I, personally, like him. I think he is trying to do positive work as well. I believe that the CasinoCity merger will make APCW that much better as well.

    With that said, there is a lot of resentment about the GW issue (Gambling Wages) and this is, I think, what has people fired up. When attempting to rescue a company like GW that has hurt quite a few, there are bound to be people getting upset. Many have not been paid in the past as I recall and that never sits well. It is a difficult subject and I think everyone is just airing out their feelings.

    Unfortunately (on both sides), I believe the anger will stay unresolved. Both sides feel equally passionate about the issue.

    Me - I don't know enough about the situation having never been screwed by Gambling Wages (or their casino properties) to have a real opinion on either side. I just hope that both sides stop with the bashing and attempt to talk without resulting in name calling or other non-productive arguing.


    BTW - That is just my 10,000 foot view of the situation... I don't want to get in the middle of something that painful for all involved. :)

    I'm not keen to seeing anyone get bashed in public forums. I don't care who it is. I don't think it's productive.

    I also like J Todd. I enjoy his weekly videos and have never had issue with him.

    As far as players in the past that haven't been paid, I guess if you're trying to turn over a new leaf so to speak, you have to start somewhere. And I think all that JTodd could be expected to do is to deal with the complaints that are brought to APCW when he asked people to do this. I don't think it's his responsibility to go looking for people to try and get them paid.

    And although I believe in giving people second chances, I don't think that when a program loses so many people's trust like Gambling Wages casinos have, that trust can be restored so quickly. It took a lot of years to get the reputation they have now. And it will take time to try and restore it. I don't think it's reasonable to expect people to trust them again over night. If they do the right things now, and continue to do the right things for a good while, then eventually I might take them more seriously about turning a new leaf.

    Too busy that to know more about this situation, I'm enough of CAP and GPWA problems. But what I want to say is that I like JTodd and I like APCW. I have never had any problems with Gambling Wages, but now I don't promote them, and they are still paying me commissions without any problems, what I respect.

    I think it's as bad as seeing anyone else in the industry get that type of treatment, but I can't say I'm surprised.

    IMO he has done a good job at what he does and atleast he IS doing something to help others.

    I don't like anything that is going on in this biz right now, this is why I am minding my own business and focusing on my work and my players.
