    I see in the front page JP Kelly is wearing a PokerStars.com hat. I thought pros weren't allowed to wear .com apparel only .net since Stars wanted to make sure they were not endorsing real money gambling. Or was that only in the U.S?

    Only in the US could they not promote the .com side

      Actually I believe Canada as well Eric.

      All sportsbooks and pokersites advertise .net for some strange reason and that gets them around some loop hole.

        One reason I brought this up is I was reading in other forums a year ago about how people were wondering if it was cool or not cool to go to a local casino wearing pokerstars.com gear, like hats sweaters, shirts etc. The response from the people in the forum was interesting. 80% of them said it is a no no to show up at a casino wearing .com gear.

        Last Christmas my wife surprised me with a fully patched hoody she got from e-bay but only thing is it was endorsing the .com doesn't really matter now but I just thought it was interesting seeing a Pro wearing .com apparel

          Unless the people wearing the gear are appearing at televised tables, I highly doubt there is a rule against wearing .com gear, and I would be very interested in hearing if there actually is anything against it. I can't imagine why that kind of restriction would be in place. I have read that wearing stuff with a Stars logo can make you stand out in a B&M venue for all the wrong reasons, but that's a different topic than censorship entirely.

          And, I really didn't notice this until it was mentioned in the OP, but after a closer look, it seems that JP is in fact not wearing a Stars cap, but rather a cap branded with a different logo that has a Stars patch placed overtop.

            I believe now that I am thinking this was what people were talking about.

            I was under the impression that Stars only promoted .net , looking at this years WSOP pictures there were a lot of Pro's and regulars that were playing at a non televised game wearing Stars.net apparel. If you look at the different Pics here and on pokerStars home page all are wearing .net . Not really a big issue just thought it was interesting because this is the first time for me seeing someone wearing .com apparel.
