As i look on the tournament lobby of my online site,it strikes me there isnt 1 freeroll registering? Then i notice how many low stakes bloodsucking tournaments there are,,you know,,$1rb $2turbo's etc,,the 1's we all know we shouldnt but we do!
Then i notice how many of the tourneys running are way past their guarenteed amounts,double trble!! Then i thiink all these tourneys have 1 hour late reg? Then i think about how split pots in cash games still incure rake! you win and lose? how can that work?
Then i think to myself,they can do whatever they want,we are just the low paid work force generating rake,rake is the lifeblood of a site and we are the food! imo,lol
Then i think of us,the players,and i think by nature as poker players,we are selfish greedy and individualistic and ego's are definately inflated,which is fine for poker but awful for admitting we need help!
Well i am saying we need help! We need a players union to stand up for us players,give us as workers a pay rise! better value tourneys! less late reg! no rake on split pots! give us something back ffs!! you make enough profit out of us!!
The power of 1 huge union could really give us the clout we deserve as players! Isnt if worth a go? anyone wanna get on board?

Online Poker Players Union OPPU
June 5th, 2012 #2
The prob with online poker is that it is all based on bullshit! Freerolls are BS, promos are BS, deposit bonuses are BS. All the BS is designed to keep us playing, and maximize profits(late reg. rebuys).
The BS is like quick sand, once your in it you can't get out: You open a card room account and deposit $20, play for a few hours, now your down to $5 and wondering where that $20 deposit bonus your supposed to get is. So you poke around your account and find that you only have to play about 30 more minutes to get $5 of that $20 bonus released! You can see where this is going. When you signed up it sounded like the card room could not wait to match your deposit! According to the ad you saw you just had to sign up for a "Free poker bankroll" or, "freerolls every few hours", more BS! Yea it's theoretically possible to build up a "free" bankroll. You enter a freeroll that takes 4 or 5 hours to play and if you beat the odds and end up in the money you end up with a few cents for your trouble. Unless your able to win the event outright(remember there's 4000 people playing!) and get the top prize of maybe $12 or a coupon to another tourny!
A union? Sounds like an uphill battle against a flood of bullshit! But color me interested.
