Bergman is an ABSOLUTE must! No questions asked.
Oscar has been working out/matching up under all different conditions, and this may be his last BEST chance, as his newborn will be here soon, if not already. His timing is perfect, he's road tough now, no rattle and the Berg yep. Good picks....Bergs proven himself. Oscars possibly, going to have to do a 9-5, it works best raising a family. My guess, he might take over dads gig, he ain't getting any younger, he and I battled many times 70's-80's.

My problem with Bergman is he elected to go to Austin instead of NYC. Much much much weaker field....

You know that though.

No comment on the other four threads you created with five high-profile American names in the running?
My other four threads -- actually, maybe it was five -- were actually my picks for the Team USA, I made a thread about each one and dug up some data on them to share, some with photos and others with articles written about them.

I used post here quite often, five or more posts a day, but now I leave this forum to members like you, who actually have little to contribute and enjoy flaming others who do contribute pool-worthy threads.

There's a reason why this pool forum does not have as much activity as it did several years ago, and as they say in the game of Tag, you're it.

I don't think the fact that the news release shows the top 20 changes anything. They actually provide (via a click) a full list of everyone who has earned points, and the list has 137 names on it this year: http://www.matchroompool.com/wp-cont...a-rankings.pdf

But I think it's certainly likely that the 5th pick will come from the first or second ten on the points list.

[And if your inside info is correct, maybe you already know he's from the second ten.]
You could be right. Makes sense!

Again, I found them ALL interesting and appreciate your thoughtfulness to bring them to the fore.

Thank you, Will. I was trying to create some cool pool reads on this pool forum. It's nice to know some folks still enjoy discussing pool-related topics. It used to be so much fun posting here. I was actually almost enjoying AzBilliards, the same way we used to, but I knew it was too good to be true. Facebook has more pool-related news lately, anyway. I don't know what I was thinking when I tried to get something going here. Wasted effort on my end, except for a few kindred souls like you who enjoyed the reda. Thanks again!

Wasn't I subtle enough?

That's my team picks.

If Bergman is left off, someone will have some explaining to do. He would be my number one pick out of ALL the US players at this point in time. Can't blame the guy for not running all the over the country trying to qualify when it's a losing proposition.

If he's not on the team I'll have a hard time even watching this year.

Actually, some of us that you hate actually like A LOT of your posts, its just a few posts that really really really rub us the wrong way. I enjoyed reading those other posts, but I'm confused as to why there was nothing on Earl currently since he is one of your top pics?
Anyway, thanks for those other threads
Jason

I can agree with that. I would actually seriously consider leaving Shane off the list, his performance has been for a lack of a better word terrible.

I certainly don't get the hate on JAM for posting on the latest for the MC.
Just from the outside looking in JAM, don't feed the trolls. If you ignore their petty posts, they might just fade away? Wouldn't that be nice?

Thanks, MOJOE. You're right, of course. It's always the same ones too. I've noticed they go after others too, not just me. I do ignore them most of the time. When I do not respond to them, they post three and four times in hopes I do respond. It's a game with them. For me, I'm just trying to contribute, read, and enjoy a pool forum.

Call me an idiot(and I'm sure everyone will) but how about having some new faces in general? I know they are not in people's radars, but guys like Jeremy sossei has showed that he can go toe to toe with the best the USA has to offer. Why not put him in there as a dark horse?

I guess I'm just of the opinion that some of the so called low level pros in this country are very overlooked. just change it up a bit to see something different. afterall, this is just an exhibition.

You neglected to consider that the trip to Texas, for Justin, is much easier and cheaper. If you would like to pay Justin's travel expenses, then I am sure he would be happy to attend every far flung tournament YOU would like him to enter.

Also, he is clearly the second best American player (maybe the best) because MC diminishes SVB's break. It doesn't matter if Justin goes to 9 turning stone events or zero, if Matchroom wants to field the most competitive American team, it will have Justin on it.

Just stop with the persecution complex. You are a longtimer on this forum and dish it out often with constant attacks of troll, newcomer, et cetera. You should be able to take some of your own medicine.

Thanks for the explanation about the other threads, we'll see if your inside info is correct.
