While this isn’t necessarily the first time Daniel Negreanu has bashed the actions of Full Tilt Poker–and specifically Ray Bitar, Howard Lederer, and Chris Ferguson–the above clip is the first time he’s done it in very clear language on a video blog.
Daniel really taps into the general public zeitgeist with this one. Along with calling Lederer (and the others) “a shameful little weasel” and “disgraceful,” he also says:
“I’d have no problem if…somebody came up to you and bash you in the nuts with a baseball bat.”
Damn. Watch the vid rant in full starting around the 6 minute mark.
In unrelated news, Negreanu also admits he’s STD free, so that’s good for him, although bad for the kayaking industry and means he may not ride a bike with or walk on a beach with a hot girl any time soon…
