    Of course not all of them do but there are alot of guys that look like they are straight out of casting for a mob movie.

    You would think that most of the dealers would look like this too if they are getting promoted to this position.

    Am i off base here or has anyone else noticed this?

    You are off base. When a person wants to romanticize Vegas, its easy to think of guys in suits in positions of perceived power in a former mob haven as mobsters. The bottom line is that they are paid far less than you assume and have far less authority.

    I have oft thought the same thing, usually aided by several adult beverages at the Riv or previously the Stardust, but then I realize that their suits are cheaper than my running shoes and they are waiting for their shift to hurry up and end.

    It's the other way around. The mobsters all dressed like pit bosses so they'd fit in.

    Lol! I know what you mean. There's a box man at MSS that has the stare of death. He always stares down the dice setters, especially when they are on a heater. Young guy. Asian descent.

    He reminds me of the Yakuza. (shudder):poke:
