    This is just fear mongering, the bodog.com domain has not been in use. Calvin will never step foot in the US. No bank accounts were seized. This may scare off some players but it just seems like a complete waste of taxpayer money.

    It's business as usual for the company.

    Agreed, that could very likely be happening... Better be careful.

    Quite choking news I would say.

    So what's everyone's opinion on the charges? Do you think they are true, or another US Government move?

    I think if you're in the usa and you promote sports or poker you're walking on thin ice.

    Even if it's brands that do not accept US traffic?

    Only if the NFL or any USA sports are being bet on then there could be a problem.
    The NFL seems pretty protective of their brand. I'd feel ok with European Football and other non-usa sports venues.

    Poker I don't know to much about but there is the WSOP and Hollywood Poker. Seems someone wants to gain control of these segment.

    I stick with the slots, hopefully no one cares about them.
    But I'm paranoid by nature anyway so take what I say with a grain of salt.
