Not only that, but lots of them will rat hole. They will cash when their stacks get 2 or 3 times what they bought in for, and then come back and get in line for their old seat.
Midweek, most of these players are regs, and have been for years, they BBQ together, and know family's of each other. There can easily be unintentional collusion, not to mention outright collusion.
On those occasions when I feel like playing ring at the casino, I go in with the notion of trying to have a good time, and while that makes me exactly who they want playing, it doesn't mean I play stupid. Until I get a big stack and I don't walk away. That is my brand of stupid.
I heard Commerce Casino has lot of colluding players. Although I've only heard it through rumors and stories, Not good to get near it or play there, especially when you can only buy in to their tables for $40 at $1/$2 blinds.
Collusion is held everywhere. I believe online is WAAAAAY easier to collude than live games. So by your logic, online is more rigged(not rigged in terms of the online poker rng system and site but the players who rig it by sharing the hole cards) because friends can sit on one table, use their phones or aim/msn/skype or even use voip so that they don't even type to each other and share their hole cards, and it's way easier to do than doing it live.
