I really do think there is more to this story than this, i think some of the money involved there weren't so legit if you ask me...

I think if it's a clean home game, even high stakes, nothing would have happend.

In my opinion if you broke the law then you have to pay for your misdeeds. Tobey was playing ilegal games so now he has been convicted.

its 80,000 per player. its a total of about 311,000. not just 80. its total fking BS that this retard, stole money to gamble with, lost it and then the people that won the money have to pay it back. what the hell is that? I would tell them to shove it right in thier Azzes. seriously, and to the moron that said 80k is nothing to a hollywood actor? i think your wrong. 80k is something to anyone, even if you have a million sitting in the bank, to give up 80k is quite alot, esp over 300k.

fking stupid morons, i hope the guy rots in jail and tobey fks him up when he gets out. dumbazz
