In an interesting move made on Wednesday, Jamie Gold's relationship with Team Bodog has been terminated. Although the rumors around the poker world say that Bodog cut its ties with Gold because of his lawsuit with Crispin Leyser, or his cocky attitude, or his unwillingness to promote the company, Bodog's official reason came from Susan Mainzer, Bodog's senior media relations manager.
"In light of its decision to cease all offline marketing initiatives in the U.S., and instead refocus its efforts on growing its entertainment brand in Europe and Asia, Bodog has ended its business relationship with Jamie Gold," Mainzer said. "Bodog has enjoyed our association with Mr. Gold and wishes him the best of luck in his future endeavors."
Normally, I wouldn't question this move, but if they are planning on stopping all online initiatives, why wouldn't Bodog also end its relationship with professional poker players David Williams, John Arieh and Evelyn Ng?
Either way, would you really listen to a man who left a voicemail saying, "It's your money," to Leyser, then never give him it? What if he were to promote another entity? There's a major trust issue there, and I'm sure it cost Gold lots of money in sponsorships.

Isn't this "old news" already?
There was a settlement reached, but the amount was not disclosed. Gold wound up apologizing I believe and "regretting his actions" or whatever.
Either way, I can't stand Gold, he's a huge douche and a terrible ambassador for poker.www.RakeReport.net
