    Disgraced Epic Poker head & former WSOP Commissioner Jeffrey Pollack named President of XFL

    Remember Jeffrey Pollack?

    He presided over some pretty embarrassing times at the WSOP, including the "poker peek" playing card debacle (with his signature on the back of the cards) and the dangerous "poker tent" which blew down in the Vegas summer wind. Also, money was stolen from the prizepool of rebuy tournaments under his watch ("allegedly").

    But that doesn't compared to the fail and shady behavior he and Annie Duke engaged in with their Epic Poker League in 2011. Players were promised a $1,000,000 freeroll if they finished in the top 27 spots on the leaderboard. Epic folded early, and they stiffed everyone on the freeroll. Despite this, Annie and Jeffrey still took home salaries well over $300,000.

    Now Pollack was just named President of the revived XFL.



    Unbelievable how this guy keeps getting work.

    I can't believe he was a Los Angeles Chargers Executive.

    I think the expression on his face says it all.

    “Oh god, I got the job, how am I going to fuck this up”

    Druff, Hes going to be a figurehead with zero power.. He was hired to be some fake kayfabe Commish.. Vince McMahon who runs WWE with an iron fist despite having had On TV GMs of Raw and Smackdown is the boss and will remain such Pollack is just a puppet for Vinny Mc end of story...

    Doesn't matter Vince McMahon is the real shot caller Pollack is just a muppet figurehead and will do as hes told by Vince.. This is likely a move to try and make it APPEAR legitimate..
