    This is the same guy who thought bringing a trash bag containing 40,000 singles to a Vegas strip club was a good idea.

    I actually think that sounds like a pretty good idea. Okay, Pacman is one for two. Bad idea capping bets in a casinos...great idea bringing a lot of singles to a strip club. Lol

    Lol you might think so but his decision to "make it rain" that night ended up costing him a lot more than 40 grand.

    Yeah, I get your point. But at least he got something for his money in the strip club...one night where he was the big shot and got all the attention. By the way, I read about that story too.

    I bet he’s lost a lot more than that in one night in a casino and it probably wasn’t near as much fun as what he had at that strip club.

    That's why I see the strip club play by PacMan as postive EV for him. He’s probably going broke anyway. He might as well go broke in style. lol.

    not defending his behavior, but yes, IMO, at least for one or 2 years he was a star:


    During his rookie season, he had 44 tackles and 10 pass deflections. On special teams, Jones totaled 1,399 return yards and one touchdown.

    In Jones's sophomore season, he totaled career-high 62 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble, 12 deflected passes, four interceptions, 130 return yards, one interception touchdown, 14 passes defended (second-team), 440 punt return yards and tied for NFL-high with three punt return touchdowns. The three punt returns also tied the franchise record with Billy "White Shoes" Johnson, which was set in 1975. His 12.9 yards per punt return average led the NFL, edging out Chicago's Devin Hester by 1/10 of a yard, while his 26.1 yards per kick return average ranked seventh in the league and sixth in the AFC. His best performance came against the Jacksonville Jaguars in week 15, when Jones had an 83-yard interception return for a score, a 70-yard kick return, and broke up a touchdown pass to Matt Jones to save the game.

    Clearly he meant to split his 10s. If there was cheating in that round, it was the dealer cheating on Pacman's behalf by combining the bets into a single stack.

    The question the media didn't address: was the count high enough to justify the split???

    My view is that he was high and feeling reckless. This wasn't a thinking situation - he was pissing around. He got a 20 and threw out another chip not really knowing (or caring) how it would be received. If the dealer was competent, he would have pushed it back and warned him about the rules. It was a half-ass maybe split, maybe bet cap, maybe whatever....let's see what happens, what do I have to lose?

    The proper response should have been for the dealer to ask what the player wanted to do with the extra chip. Pacman very well could have been splitting. That's his prerogative. The dealer was an ass. Either he should have asked, or he should have returned the chip. The last thing he should have done was to cap the original bet. I'd take the case. The dealer was a moron.

    Agree Don...the dealer is the one who capped the bet, not Pacman. Pacman has a long history of being a douche, but in this case it appears the casino started the problem.
