Why I hate Matt Maroon's online persona

Matt Maroon's blog on December 6th titled PokerStars and Retards has hit a new low. Its such a disgusting entry and exactly what poker professionals SHOULD NOT be writing. Now I admit that he has done a good job cultivating a blog audience with this awful drivel he comes out with from week to week, but as has been proven in many forms of American Culture, just cause the idiot masses enjoy it doesnt mean it is any good. I am not sure if he is completely selling out to make a name for himself in the poker world, or as I suspect he really is this miserable and unlikeable, either way this stuff is garbage.

His recent post about calling out "retards" for playing bad is awful on so many levels. He is encouraging his reading audience (for the most part a miserable crew who share the same negative attitude, and curmudgeon-like attitude on the world as Maroon) to not only act like assholes and make this world a worse place, but also to make fun of people for playing poker poorly. Neither of these things do anything to help poker progress or even stay stagnant. I really wonder how someone like Maroon, who is presumably pretty intelligent (just ask him) can produce garbage like this. His entry is clearly a mediocre attempt at humor (although they also seem to be his true feelings), but just saying "retard" a bunch of times does not make you Howard Stern.

Im not sure what drove me to make this entry, but I decided to open up his blog like a do once a week or so, and I needed to get this off my chest. I have a number of good friends that vouch for Maroon in real life. These are all good people whose opinion I trust and respect. This is probably why it is so puzzling to me why Maroon continually spreads bad vibes and ideas through the poker world. I give him credit that he has built up a blog audience and a name for himself in the poker world for being the "bad boy of blogging". Having a succesful blog is no small feat (by the way this is certainly not a goal of mine, but I do respect the quest.) Its just too bad that Maroon has to act like a social retard while doing so.

I agree - it really sh#ts me that people use terms "retard" and "spastic" so frivolously nowadays, particularly in poker circles. Do these people think before they speak/write?

As someone who's hung out with a fair few people with disabilities, it just really is tacky and reflects badly on the person speaking the evil.

Not singling out Mr Maroon or anyone, but I just wanted to say it's nice to see someone else say something about it.

Matt Maroon is one of least intelligent people I have ever met. His inflated ego is ridiculous; he has done nothing to merit it. Suck it Matt.

Agreed as well. His personality is just as bad online as it is in person. I was really disappointed when I finally got to meet him. But for what it's worth, he's dealing with a profound mental disorder.

Don't worry guys, Matt is going to be stone-cold broke before he gives up his new fantasy sports site. It's really sad to watch someone with no discernible talent or intelligence light his money on fire. He won't be getting it back.

well kids, it's 2013 and Matt's blog is long gone. His hot air ballon of a ego went bust. No poker, no Matt, no WSOP rings. It actually was amazing anyone listened to a guy whose only credit was working at Home Depot part time
