Victor Rocha to Receive Lifetime Achievement Award

Victor Rocha, owner and editor of Pechanga.net, will be presented with the prestigious Casino Marketing Lifetime Achievement Award at the eighth annual Casino Marketing Conference, July 18-20 at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.

Rocha site has been the subject of a few blogs posts, being as he's first cousin to civil rights violator and chairman of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indans Mark Macarro.   It's pretty well known that his site censors bad news from the Pechanga Reservation.   Victor was accused of slander by David Miranda, or rather, sending a "slanderous e-mail" who was forced out of his position at Pechanga Development Corp.  Here is the excerpt:

"My questions I may email to [the Tribal Attorney John Macarro], but I hesitate to do so now, and prefer to wait for the bombshell effect. Then, no doubt a degree of confusion will descend and political moves will commence." It was expected that the timing of the emal would cause donfusion among our elected leaders on the Tribal Council and cause them to make political moves to save their own jobs.


We've also taken Victor to task for comments made to women:

Author and Editor Rocha's eloquent response, apparently speaking for Pechanga, as he responded without authorization. Will he be censured?


From: Victor Rocha
Date: 5/25/2008 11:44:25 PM
To: Marcie

Subject: RE: Disenrollment

Blah, blah, blah, blah!

STFU & GFY    (Internet slang for Shut the Fuck Up and Go Fuck Yourself)

Congratulations to the Casino Marketing Conference on their fine choice.

Victor Rocha

Victor is the Western Version of Pravda, and Al Jezzera. I remember at Pechanga meetings (when they met in the little room with the freezer motor drowning out the speakers) Victor being a super hot head and always sounding so hateful.

Smokeybear you said it yourself, "cover up for Mark" yp, that's exactly what he's getting an award for.
Hateful, ya think! That what the cpp Corrupt Pechanga People are breeding.

I am not sure what this man Rocha has ever done to deserve any award. In fact, for those who don't know, his classless response ot "Blah, blah, blah, blah! and STFU AND GFY" was directed to women from other tribes who said the actions taking in disenrolling hundreds of long time tribal members in good standing was wrong.

He is real piece of work this one.


Here's a challenge, to come up for a name of the band that Victor is in with the Macarro brothers, they sometimes play at tribal parties and in one of the lounges at the casino.

My vote is to call their band the "ASSWIPES"

QUESTION: WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT HIS WEBSITE COMPARED TO OUR WEBSITE? HE ALWAYS AVOIDS TELLING THE REAL STORY OF WHAT'S GOING ON IN INDIAN COUNTRY. ACCORDING TO HIM EVERTHING IS HUNKY-DORY AND MARK MACARRO WEARS WINGS AND A HALO. MORE LIKE HORNS AND A PITCH FORK. LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT, FOR WHAT, FOR COVERING MACARRO AND HIS HENCHMEN'S A..? IF THEY WERE IMPARTIAL, HOW DID THEY EVER, AND I MEAN "EVER", CHOOSE THAT RAT BASTARD ROCA FOR A"LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT" ANYTHING. WHAT IN THE HELL HAS HE DONE TO DESERVE THIS? DIDN'T THEY DO THEIR HOMEWORK, OR IS THERE SOME GREASED HANDS SOMEWHERE. DON'T TELL THIS ALL BOILS DOWN "MONEY", AGAIN.

A NAME FOR THE BAND, WELL LETS SEE: HOW ABOUT" BUTT SNIPE AND THE RAT BASTARDS". THINK THAT MIGHT BE FITTING?

Consider the source of the 'award'
which is just a public relations tool for spot-ighting a tool of corruption in Indian Country.

Shameless! Like mother, like son!She should be getting shameless award too.

Awesome control of the english language,Victor Cockroach.
Must have gone to the same school as your cousins Mark and John Macarro.

smokeybear said...

COME TO THINK OF IT, I COULDN'T FIND ANYPLACE ON "PECHANGA.NET' TO LEAVE COMMENTS ON WHAT ROCHA CALLS IMPORTANT "STUFF. YOUR NOT ALLOWED TO MAKE COMMENTS? SO YOUR AN AUDIENCE WITH NO SAY. CAN'T TELL HIM HE IS FULL OF IT, AND REJECT THINGS HE SAYS ON THE WEBSITE AS BEING TOTALLY WRONG AND/OR MISGUIDED? THAT'S JUST GREAT, AND HE'S GETTING A LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD FOR WHAT? POSTING THINGS THAT CAN'T BE QUESTIONED. THAT MUST BE HOW THE "MACARRO CARTEL" PLANNED IT.

Victor Rocha has provided a valuable resource to the gaming community. He can censor the bad news about Pechanga while highlighting the bad news for the competition. Rocha puts plenty of links to Soboba's bad news but broke no news about the recall attempt on Macarro. He's no newsman

Cockroacha does what he is told. I do not think that he was veted in any mannor other than it was his turn on the list. The list being those who are in their little club.
