If someone said I am going to play the ghost 9 ball a race to 7 and win by using my aiming system, that would get my attention, but all I've seen so far is a bunch of arguing about who's system is better.
I recently retired and have been playing the 9 ball ghost in an effort to improve. I'd be really interested in watching a video of anyone beating the ghost using the aiming system of their choice playing anything. I don't think that's going to happen though, but maybe someone will step up and show us why his or her system is the best.
Been done. Video of people running racks is discounted because we all know that playing pool is more than aiming. Dave Segal posted the highest score in Colin Colenso's potting test. Look it up. No one who tried it beat him.
Dave also posted a video of himself running 48 balls using it. He posted video of himself making a lot of banks shots using it. He posted video of him making 13 of 15 tough shots that a naysayer couldn't be done with a system. (and the two shots he missed weren't missed - the ball went but he scratched so he graciously didn't count them)
Ekkes posted a video making 12 out of 14 banks using his system. I think Ekkes also posted a video of him running several racks.
The video proof is there.
Mybuster on YouTube (8 Pack on here) has posted many video of himself making tough shots and running racks and he uses a "systematic" approach to aiming.
I posted a video of me doing Joe Tucker's pocketing drill.
So there is plenty of video evidence out there. All this is better than if someone simply posts videos of themselves beating the ghost. And even if one did then the naysayers wouldn't accept it as proof anyway.
