A banger is someone that shoots a ball into the side pocket, doubles the tits and sinks it in the far corner then acts like they were trying to do it.

A banger is someone that has no idea where the ball is going and then laughs when it goes in.

A banger is someone that shits in a ball then acts like they're Willie Mosconi in front of their girlfriend.........all the while she's amazed at how good he is.

The latter is true, but if someone can draw at all, they're usually on their way to graduating from banger status.

Could be true, but IMO a banger (or person that has mastered the draw) has no use of the draw other then to impress. And they are unaware of where whitey will stop just that they know that it "looks cool". We can all learn a draw shot if it's all we ever tried to master in pool setting a side proper fundamentals, stradegy, over all potting of balls and english using tip posistion other then bottom of the CB to bring it back.

Better one would be the guy tries the 3 rail, maybe you're playing one on the 8, three on the cue, or last pocket. Then he kicks 3 rails but puts reverse english and wonders what happened.

A banger is defined as................fill in the blanks people.

I'll get it started with this one.

A banger is defined as a person who uses draw on every shot and only knows 2 speeds; hard and really hard!
A banger is defined as a person who:

1. Scoops the CB for a jump shot.
2. Rocks the rack back and forth ten times before giving a loose rack.
3. Inserts fingers to separate CB from rail.
4. Thinks 8-ball is "regular" pool.
5. Will never understand the rules of one pocket.
6. Will never understand the rules of 3-cushion.
7. Refers to high as "high-top" or "high-follow" or "top-follow".
8. Refers to draw as "low backspin", "low draw" or variations thereof.
9. Has a cue from Sports Authority or Sears.
10. Racks the balls at the wrong end of the table.
11. Does not understand what a safe shot means.
12. Thinks making the CB "spin" a lot is a demonstration of skill.
13. Tries combination shots that are considered ill-advised due to distance, timing, complexity.
14. Tries bank shots into the side pockets from the top or bottom rails.
15. Thinks people that ask for a re-rack are "fussy" or "picky".
16. Tries to advise any female player even though they can't play themselves. Apparently sexism and male "bangerism" go hand-in-hand.
17. Wants to learn to jump or masse because they saw a better player do it, and they can't wait to impress their friends.
18. Is a litte too eager to start gambling when they can't play at all.
19. Has never heard of more than three pro players, male or female, refers to Jeannette Lee as "that Chinese" or "that Oriental" chick.
20. Does not know how to lag.

Of course, most if not all of these can be applied to beginners, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but I assume the OP was looking for definitions for the more annoying characteristics of bangers. Now that I have wasted more company time I will go to lunch...:)

I wonder how many Cue Makers there would be? I wonder how many Case Makers there would be? I wonder how many Pool Tournaments with added money there would be? I wonder how the cost of a Box of Chalk, Cue, Case , etc. would be effected with out those "BANGERS" ? http://www.geocities.com/cocobolocowboy/geerr.gif
