Threw Out Player's Card.

I have given the derby lane a number of chances.... and have decided after this evening that I will not be returning. My main issue is with the floor managers and their clearly automatic behavior towards resolving issues with hands at the tables, and with solving disputes with players. I have seen a multitude of hands where say a player went to call using their chip stack, dropped a call over the line, but because the player was holding more chips in hand than they dropped for their call, the floor had decided that the total amount of chips hovered over the line were to remain in the hand, EVEN WHEN the table UNANUMOUSLY agrees that it was clear that the player obviously did not intend to raise (I was never the player that made this poor move in this example). I have also had experiences where because I've been conversing with another player at a different table than mine for a minute or two that I was aggressively asked to leave. Upon respectfully asking what I had done wrong, and what I can do to curb the behavior in the future, the floor manager responded with no answer, and simply asked if he needed security, as if I was posing a threat. There is no polite way to respond to this, because when asked "Do I need to get security?" the obvious answer is "No, and I am happy to vacate the area...." but when you begin to continue with "and could you please tell me what I've done wrong so that I don't do it in the future" it is met with, "Okay...... SECURITY" it is painfully clear that there is little value on retaining a player base.... Their mindset simply seems to be..."I mean... where the @#$% else are you going to play poker you degenerate..." to which... I have several places I can play otherwise thankfully... and will do so from now on. After leaving the poker room this evening, I threw my Derby Lane Players Card out of my wallet and out the window of my car.... and feel much happier for doing so. Do not play here.... go to Hard Rock Casino in Tampa, or maybe Silks in Tampa. One Eyed Jacks in Sarasota is a great place to play as well.
