You know this fine looking woman is getting angry when..........
It's her 1st post in the forum ever......
And it's to talk about the new Premier League.
Which i have watched lots of quality players falling by the wayside very early on.
Faithy - spike - i agree with you totally.
And yes Dennis - i am doing rubbish.

ON PURPOSE !!!!! lol B
Good 2 see you on here Faithy.
I think i just like being in any League.
Gives you a chance to compare yourself against others.
And if i get relegated ( which at this mo looks very likely )

Then i will take it on the chin and carry on. B

Faithy, welcome to the forum.

This just begs the question, if you can't beat players you perceive as bad, or "donks", then how will you compete with players you perceive as good? It doesn't look good, does it?

Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get off the train of rigged-land. If you truly thought it was rigged, would you really be "wasting" so much time here? Because that is what any thinking person would perceive it as..a waste. And I don't think you're on that train...I just think your ride is tilting a bit at the moment.

Now Dan, i never said in here that the site was rigged....just that i was highly dissatisfied atm
and also atm i can't answer your question of how i would compete with 'good' players because i keep getting knocked out by the 'bad' ones but maybe one day i will be able to answer it, you never know.....stranger things have happened
thank you for you feedback tho

SO YOU WANT THEM TO "RIG IT " SO YOU WIN ?

WHEN YOU SAY THAT POKERSTARS IS REWARDING THE DONKS, THAT IS WHEN YOU HAVE ONE FOOT ON THE "IT'S RIGGED" BAND WAGON
