We are gonna have fun.:D

Thanks to Greg Sullivan and Diamond Billiard Products, along with Mark Griffin and the BCA Pool Leagues, TheActionReport.com is going to do something that has never been done before. We are gonna stream LIVE from the Derby City Action room. For free.

We will probably do a few Pay Per Views if the logistics work out but otherwise all of our coverage will be on our free Ustream channel.

Derekdisco is going to be hanging out doing his thing with us putting his own special flavor on the Derby experience. Buddy Hall will be helping us out as his schedule allows as will many of the pro's we have met and worked with so far.

First time EVER, EVER, EVER there is a bar box in the action room. We are going to have a camera on it as well as a 9 footer. More info on the daily schedule and individual matches will be posted in the near future.

If you have any suggestions for us while we are there, lets's hear 'em.

Here is the flyer :

What a great thing for you to do for us JCIN. Sounds like a great show. I hope one of the WPBA members will step up to play Monica...like one of the Fisher's, K. Corr, or "the Black Widow" Thanks in advance. Thanks also goes out to Mr. Sullivan and Mr. Griffin. Johnnyt

Thanks for the kind words Johnny. It sure isn't just me. It wouldn't happen without Chad and Jason. Mark and Greg are great guys, no BS, they just make things happens. Love those guys.

I really hope Monica finds a game. I know she is double tough for the cash, I would love to see her and Karen match up in an All Around. She is not looking to bet sky high, just a little something to make it interesting. Hope it comes off.

Thanks to everyone involved! The Action Report is rapidly developing into one of the nicest things that has happened for hardcore players and fans in a long time. As you mentioned, it takes cooperation and help from others to make it happen so a big thanks to everyone concerned.

I'd like to take Hopkins in the SVB match for last-pocket 8 ball on the bar box if someone will give me a little weight (if they're playing per-set). Just cheap action for fun.

I'd like to see a women's all-around. If anyone else is interested, PM me. Maybe we can put someone in action against her. What are her all-around disciplines? Because if she'll play 9, straight, and carom ... she can bet what she wants if I could get Jeanette to play.

If we're talking 9, bank, and one pocket ... Monica would be hard to beat, but I'll still put some $$$ down just to make it happen.

Spider, I might like to sweat it... how much weight you talkin?

Greg and Mark are SMART cookies. They know that with the DCC experience being broadcast to more wannabees out there FREE OF CHARGE, that the DCC will continue to grow, probably at even greater proportions than in the past.

Can't wait to see how big of a disco globe they put up for Derek. :D

Hard to say w/out knowing how they're going to be gambling...depends on the length of the set or if it's an "ahead" game. Will you be at the Derby? If so, you'll see me there. Once I learn the lay of the land, we can decide something fair together. :)

Dave

EDIT: Just learned they're playing "per game." I'll take 2-1 on the money, $20/game... with the understanding we can re-adjust if things get a little outta hand. Your thoughts? Not looking to go-off, just looking for something friendly.

Awesome news! You guys are the best!

I have two suggestions/requests, if possible:

- TV balls
- Mics on each player

Thanks again for what you guys are doing!

I would like to join to the words by mosconiac. That's a great opportunity for me to catch the action. I know it will force me to be more eager to go to the Derby some day, but it's a great feeling. Thanks to The Action Report team and best wishes!

Cuebacca: tAR has responded in the past to the (many) TV balls request & I think they are taking it seriously. It would help a lot given the lower resolution of the stream versus TV.

I know... I did make the request already too, a while back, but I don't mean to be pushy. :o It was just a friendly reminder in case it had slipped through the cracks. :)

It's Derby City, it doesn't matter. There will be action. Guaranteed. In fact, a nice line might be made for over/under $$$ bet on the action table.

There's one for you line setters.

Over $87,000 .... 4/5
Under $87,000 .... 4/5
Odds someone will talk over an hour and not gamble ... 1/11987
Odds someone will pitch to the spot for more than $20 ... 1/250
Odds Bucktooth will actually play a match for any real $$$ this year .... 5/1

If you can get Jeanette in the box against Monica, that would be a great match! She might be the favorite over Monica in an All Around, and only her.

I'm with you here. 9-Ball, One Pocket and 14.1 I like Jeanette. If you replace the 14.1 with Banks, I still like Jeanette. Forget Three Cushions, Monica has no chance there.

12-19-2007, 12:10 PM
only her.

The only other fairly interesting match I could forsee would be Sarah Rousey with a little weight, but I think she can play any game.

derekdisco
12-19-2007, 01:31 PM
Monicas challenge is open to anyone, all they have to do is get up and take her cash!

I honestly only like Karen to beat Monica in an all around. If the black widow gets down with her, ill take Monica.

Shane will kill Hopkins in last pocket 8 ball on a bar box. Can't wait to watch Tony and Shannon play, that will be awesome!

Hoppy will have a rough go at it, you're right. They're playing per-game--- not a set. I'll take Hop for a friendly sweat bet $20/game, but I def need 2-1 on the money.

derekdisco
12-19-2007, 04:34 PM
I don't think anyone is going to kill Allen hopkins in any game. Let alone last pocket 8 ball, if its alternate breaks then shane is maybe a 60/40 favorite.

I am excited to see this one go off. Allen does not make to many bad games but does he know how Shane is REALLY playing lately? I think he knows excactly what he is doing and wants to play a tough game to sharpen up.

Really going to be fun.

As far as TV balls, I have no problem with it. Can we just get the 4 and 7 balls? We probably will not buy an entire set to lug around. Having the players mic'ed is a good idea and one we plan on doing the only issue is that so far every player we have worked with HATES it. We have 2 wireless mic's that work great (and cost a fortune) we just have to get the players to get comfortable with them.

Maybe mic up the light or by their chairs so we can still catch some stuff but they don't have to wear it. Don't know how costly that is but just an idea.

Hopkins is prob the smartest gambler alive. I'm just looking for a friendly sweat-- I just need a little weight on odds, that's all :) Shane is in mega-mode right now.

I say just keep it more original as possible. No mics, no fancy room with huge posters on the wall, no movie stars in the backround, no old pros trying to commentate then telling stories about their day, no ringside commentator asking the sweat'rs questions (ring girls in bikini's maybe OK), I would say NO commercials but I would understand because you've got to get your$.
I must compliment you on showing the last 2 hours of Harriman /Schmidt. A HELL OF A SHOW. Bartram and Putnam did an excellent job giving us insight on position play and what its like being in the box under heat. Use that as your template. YOU WILL STAND OUT! Take that format and telecast from different cities and rooms. People will love it. It can't get anymore real than Harriman jumping up and down screaming "ONE TIME" after that kick in the second to last rack. You could tell both players wanted it. Batram made a comment stating that it was road pool on tape. I was pumped after watching that match. Thanks for making it happen. F'IN GREAT BROTHER! Eight ball is DEAD. KEEP SHOWING 10 BALL on FAST TABLES!

The only other fairly interesting match I could forsee would be Sarah Rousey with a little weight, but I think she can play any game.

Sarah needs no weight! She's finished well in the 9 ball and bank tourny, I think sarahs favored in the bank, and monica in 9 ball, and the 1 hole is even.

So who is Keith playing at the Derby?

TAR is what I am asking about

The idea was Keith playing Little Jon on the bar box. Last I heard Keith had some things come up and will not be at the Derby this year.

I am a little confused...if you want to put Sarah in against Monica, that game is open.

I think it would be great, they are both great players and play hard for the money.

im sure if keith dont make it, lil john will play just about anyone. im sure he will end up filling some time on the action report. i know last year there was talk about LJ playing billy incardona some one hole, maybe it can come to fruition with a little help from the action report.
