Dale "Daleroxxu" Philip Dismissed from Team PokerStars

It's been a week since PokerStars pro Dale "Daleroxxu" Philip announced that he was dropped from Team PokerStars due to an incident in Marbella, unrelated to poker, where he had been representing the company.

Philip was knocked out of the main event of the UKIPT - Estrellas Poker Tour in Marbella and went to a local establishment to catch the Dutch vs. Spain World Cup football match while still wearing his PokerStars shirt.

He cheered when Van Persie made a goal against Spain. He danced and made an inappropriate gesture offending others in their home country.

PokerStars had not commented other than to confirm Phillip's dismissal from the team.

Opinions as to whether or not his actions were offensive are split.

Check out the situation for yourself.

    Strange decision from PS, really i does not get it. This is not a reason to pull out from pro team, not sure why they did such decision... Their managers from Spain? :D
