The above excerpt of the quote pretty much sums it up :

"about sick of all the people ragging on the tour and its decisions"

I just found this in an old thread where some pro players where ragging on small tours and talking about the thriving IPT i just wanted to know how they thought now
this quote is from our own js


"if i won the usopen,worldchampionships,sanmiguelstop,bca9ball,m osconicup,world8ball,i would not win as much as i could if i won the ipts smallest paying event.now i know i could never win all those i would be super lucky to win any of them,so im thrilled with the ipt and about sick of all the people ragging on the tour and its decisions.i hope macguy shows up at a ipt tourney i will personaly make sure hes given a hard time if not even escorted out by security"

Dude, come friggin' on.

First off, post this in the correct forum (there is a specific IPT forum on this MB in case you didn't notice).

Second, don't start thread that are clearly intended to bait posters into a bitter grinding argument.

Look, I'm not trying to get into a cock jousting match with you here lawman. I for one am about tired of the continuous beating of this subject.

Also, by using a handy "Search" feature built into vBulletin's forums with a few select keywords; I'm sure you could find a wealth of information on how people feel about the current IPT situation. There should be an entirely different area of the forum for this stuff if you ask me.

With that being said, maybe we will hear something different.

Maybe people would listen to me or take the questions seriously if i cried about an APA rule or some other stupid thing. But because i dont post alot or am not a girl who makes sexual comments all the time i am not taken seriously.

First of all, this thread belongs in the IPT section. Second of all, if you want to be taken seriously, dont call someone that responds a "tool". People on here are so quick to start the 3rd grade name calling when someone's opinion differs from theirs. And if you want respect, dont call something like the APA "stupid" just because its not important to you. If this thread had been started in the correct section of the message board, you would have probably gotten a little different types of responses.

Well how do i get this in the correct section where some intelligent people will answer instead of not answering and criticizing me. If you look back i am a new poster and not one person tried to help. The first tool wrote some smart a$$ respnse and thne it has been nonsense after that. If you guys are not cry babies just get this in the right section and give your opinion and stop being 3 year olds

And you are wondering why no one will help you?

i think bringing up a 2 year old post written by a pro player who at the time had no idea the IPT was going to turn into the flaming wrecking ball that it's become and using that as a spring board to stir up controversy isnt a good idea. in 2004 im sure everyone was hopeful twards the IPT, and for a lot of players gave them an incentive to start practicing again.

at the most, all you're doing is pouring salt on an open wound.

Hey Lawman,
Thanks for the negative rep points. All I did was tell you the way you were going about asking for help (by calling people names and insulting anything and everything) wasnt the best way to ask. I never called you any names or made any kind of disrespecful remarks towards you. Now I will tell you what I really think......you are a pathetic little trouble maker! If you are too ignorant to know which section an IPT thread should be in, then you shouldnt be allowed to post on this forum. It is obvious that your intelligence level is lacking and probably just a matter of time before you run your "man-pleaser" enough to get you banned. I give you a week at the most!

i am simply trying to see how they feel about dissing the smaller non big money paying tours and then when the baby falls going back to the small tours. I am an IPT member and am going to small tours, but i never discredited them or abandoned them in anyway.


by "they" im assuming you mean john schmit, who in the qoute you stated never once said anything negative about the "small tours" as you refer to the us open, the world pool championships, the san miguel tour, the bca 9ball championships, mosconi cup, and the world 8ball championships.
if you didnt catch that hint of sarcasm, i dont blame you.

its very very very simple math. first place for ipt is like 150,000.
It was a whole different entity from the "small tours" such as the us open, or the world pool championships just based on the amount of money difference in the prize pool.

I sincerely doubt you're a member of the IPT.

I am sure that JS simply was expressing frustration at not being able to make a decent living at the sport he loves so much, and nothing more.

Those smaller tours probably pay the bills but not a whole lot more, and he just saw more promise at that time.

Players of all levels groan about such things. Even myself, when I have to go back to small weekly tournaments that don't pay at least a $100 for 1st. It simply is a profit vs expenses vs competition level thing.

Lawman, we all would love to hear comments from pro's on a variety of topics, IPT included. It's just not going to happen on a meaningful scale. Doesn't hurt to throw out the question tho. Any IPT discussion by the pro's would obviously be ugly at this point in time.

Move this thread to the IPT Forum?

I would say all, if not most women who post here would not like that last remark. I believe most females are taken seriously here...and we do not make sexual comments at all! :mad: (Not counting NPR, of course! :p )

Ok, I'll move this.

Lawman, you're on notice.

One more snappy, cross remark and I'll settle it all.

Lawman,

I understand that i came across as a bit harsh. As you can see by the plethora of posts, I knew this thread would turn into this.

On that note, sarcastically speaking; thanks for the negative reputation points.

Further more, I'd like to apologize for coming across as pretty harsh to a (fairly) new poster on these forums.

We're glad to have you here and hope you can learn, as well as contribute to this great community. That being said, shoot well, post well, and always use the search tool properly before posting on a subject that may (or may have not) already been discussed at extreme length.

I wish you all the best.

There's another one here that makes quite a few. If I recall, yours was contained to one thread and only in a couple of posts. The other has done it often for over a yr that I've seen.

You are correct, you are just a smart ass who has not made anything but derogatory comments since you joined this board. You have added nothing positive or constructive since you came here. I assure you that your life here will be short lived unless you change. Until you change your attitude, you will not be taken seriously. Now PAL, please give me a negative rep. I really could care less son. You can go tell somebody else that you have ran 100 balls, I ain't buying it buddy. You post like a 10 year old. Nobody likes me or what I say, you all are just a bunch of A-holes, why do you all pick on new posters, bla, bla, whine, whine, whine, cry, cry cry, whaaaaaaaa, whaaaaaa, whaaaaaaaa!!! Go pound sand yung un!!! Come back when you grow up!!!

Somebody had to say it!!!:eek:
