I know he posted a ton at gpwa as well I really feel sorry for him something must be going wrong bad in his life Lou maybe you should call and reach out to him. I know he is watching his wife die and is not himself. His drinking has escalated the last few weeks.February 10, 2009 at 2:52 am #794879
Marie called and Allan cursed her out and said Fuck you to her and hung up. My wife never wants me to talk to him again after what he screamed at her (she didnt give me full details, but it wasnt pleasant) and I cant blame her. He also told her to tell me I am a fucking bastard and ran prompt;y back to GPWA on a post fest.
I know hes undeer stress and I have always been there for him through hundreds of calls and several home visits. No matter what I would NEVER EVER do that to a friend and if ANYONE did that to Allan at CAP, even now, they would have me on their ass. Whats become of the world?
I know I am as popular as hitler right now, but my Mother is dying from cancer right now and I could sure use a few friends. Over the last eight weeks my life has turned upside down and seemingly everyone hates me.
Shit. I hate to be a cry baby but this is really unbelievable and very painful. Dom told Warren if I continued posting she was going to sit in her hot tub, so I guess that long friendship is shot too. You know what Christine on Gambling 911 some one asked were people really sure I didnt die a year ago when I was in the hospital. After a day like today I wish I had.February 10, 2009 at 3:04 am #794881AnonymousInactive

Don’t be talking like that now Lou I know everything is shit right now and it seems like you don’t have friends but you do! You have me and if I don’t agree with what your doing at times I am still your friend. Dom is your friend too and cares a lot why do you think she was trying so hard to get the forum back on track? Anyway if that is how he is talking to your wife that is a real shame because Marie has always been so nice to everyone and a sweet lady.
I am so sorry about your Mom and your all in my thoughts and prayers, I am going through the same thing in a way we decided to call hos pice(filtering this word for some reason..lol) for my Grandma this weekend and stop all cancer treatments it was a very hard weekend for me and my kids. I have a few rough weeks coming with my husbands death anniversary coming soon and now this with her. I am going to give you a call in the morning so you can have someone to vent too and to talk to. I suggest you stay away from them places and stop reading what is said don’t feed the fire.February 10, 2009 at 3:07 am #794882
I will be at office tomorrrow. 407 781-1498 is my direct line. Thanks for being a friend when it really counts. Like I said I never forget a friend.February 10, 2009 at 10:58 am #794897AnonymousInactive

That is not at all what I said.
What I did say is that I was going to stop posting and going to sit in my Jaccuzi.
I tried very hard to make good on my promise to you in London. The mood on the board was great. I even said on Meister that everything was my fault and offered myself up for all the shots that were aimed at you.
Then you come online and make a post accusing me of lord knows what, and it travels around the web before you tone it down. Not a word of communication, no asking how it went, nothing, just that post.
I would have expected you to talk to me to see how things went during your absence and get a progress report.
I have applied myself like heck for you since London, and now you are back and it is well that you should handle it all because I need to spend some time on my own health issues.
Hence I will take a breath of relief and go sit in my Jaccuzi and take slow walks and inhale pepermint steam until my lungs get better. I don’t want this bout with bronchitis to turn chronic and struggle with it for months like the last time I brought it back from London.
I will keep my computer online and a window open and check in periodically, but I am not continuing to try to be your buffer. Time to take care of myself.February 10, 2009 at 1:14 pm #794907AnonymousInactive
This is very sad to see.
I hope you feel better soon Dom and Lou your mom is in my thoughts and prayers.February 10, 2009 at 1:30 pm #794909
It seemingly just gets sadder and sadder Robin. I pray daily for a solution, maybe someday soon those prayers will be answered.February 10, 2009 at 1:34 pm #794910AnonymousInactive
Well please DON’T lose the faith. It’s when things are their darkest you see the truth. It’s not always pretty, but it’s the way it is.
If you need to talk then you can call me. I would HATE to see CAP go down in a ball of flames because of outsiders hell bent on destroying it.
I think you need to continue the disussions and take feedback. Use what you want and go from there. Those that want to support you will and those that don’t won’t.
I’m an affiliate first and I don’t know ANYONE that can help us like you can so unless you want me to leave or we fall out I will be here.
When do we start the audits?February 10, 2009 at 1:57 pm #794914
Whats funny is the outsiders whould have everyone believe CAP is going down in a ball of flames when the total opposite is true.
1. In london we had almosty 1700 members in attendance. A record no one has ever come close to approaching. Equally impressive is the fact that over 1000 were affiliates, so real affiliate arent leaving us in droves, far from it. Even GPWA, APCW and Casinomeister somehow couldnt resist coming, so despite what they SAY they see tremendous value in CAP Events too.
2. CAP Euro Amsterdam will be the largest affiliate show EVER and coupled with the influx of new retail affiliates we will have well over 2500 attendees.
3. CAP Spring Break is selling out at a record pace and will be a sell out. Its always our funnest time together so that should put more people in a positive frame of mind.
4. Membership increased to over 8100 even while the negative band played on. The negative boards and video cant boast that growth. Sure they make a lot of noise from the same seven to ten posters but they have been hostile towards CAP for years nothing new there. Its always been Greek, Mojo, Caruso, Fergie, Jay Toad and the othe three shift around. Same old suspects. Same non impact players in the game.
CAP isnt going down in a ball of flames at all.
I may be personally as so much hate has been directed at me personally that I am finding it hard to go on and I take things personally and its destroying my heart, but so much of whats going on is illusion and smoke and mirrors.
Early on we made the decision to take the high road and had faith that our members would see through the bullshit without us resposnding openly and fanning the fires. That apparantly was a mistake as so much shit has been thrown at us people cant see through it all and assume a lot of it must be true or we would have responded. This is the danger of pacificism.
I was basically unable to generate traction with my organziation as they thought I was over dramatimizing the amount of damage and confusion all this negative propoganda was causing and due to my health and personal issues I took the easier route and went along with the advice I was being given internally. My mistake. I am going to try my best to win back the faith of the members, but I could sure use as much help as possible. CAP is worth fighting for. And it will grow and prosper in 2009. We just have to make the positive light shine through the dark smoke clouds that have been generated up till now.
Christine and Robin I know I can count on you to be there and in the end we will all be proud of what we did for CAP and the industry.February 10, 2009 at 8:15 pm #794979AnonymousInactive
Haven’t forgotten our call Lou just came back from the dentist and my mouth is swollen and head is a pounding right now. I am going to lay down for a few and let it all settle down some.February 10, 2009 at 8:23 pm #794983
No worries Chris I appreciate the sentiment.
