Heard a couple of rumors about Shane this past week that I would like to find out if they are true or not.

1. I heard that Pat Diveney (Pat Diveney Custom Cues)(http://www.diveneycue.com/index.html) is making a cue for Shane to use full time. Kind of like a sponsorship deal. I don't know the details, but a couple of people from this area say that they have been to Pat's shop and seen this cue that he is making for Shane. Anyone heard that one?

2. Also heard that because of this deal with Pat, Shane will be appearing at the ISPA State tourny in Davenport, IA. He is going to have a table where you can pay $5 and play Shane. That would be cool if this is true. Can anyone who knows Shane clear any of these up for me> Thanks.

Pat and SVB would be a mutually beneficial pairing. Pat's cues are top-notch and none can deny that SVB is also found there. Hope it comes to fruition, for both of them.

Five dollars is f@#$ing chicken feed. I would give Shane a 100 dollars to play a race to 7. I would probably loose 7-0, but it would make a good story.

I don't know about those rumors but I heard that Shane and Cliff Joyner are going to play some one pocket at Shooters tomorrow night. I can't remember where I heard it......oh yeah now I do. It was when I heard Shane tell Cliff "We'll play some one pocket tommorow." when we were all sitting around at Shooters tonight. No promises but I know a couple guys who might stream it for free on Ustream if it goes off.

Well something must of happened since (the derby) I though shane was going to get paid by cuetech- Any cuemaker would jump, Shane wants a Joss from Danny Janes! Can you believe Danny said no. Jacoby offered at the derby to build a special cue! And another cuemaker at the derby wanted to have a line of cues. It has to be a deal with cash or cues for shane to sell- He's considered a world champion - sponsorship is all about the cash. mark

If Shane is getting a new cue, can someone ask him if he would give me his old cue? :D

I just got off of the phone with Pat concerning this subject. I consider Pat a friend and one hell of a good cue maker.

Here's the skinny...................

Yes, Pat is making a cue for him. Yes, he will be part of Diveney's Crew as a player/sponsored by Diveney.

Pat and Joe Villalpando had talked about trying to set something up with Shane as far as Shane doing some exhibition type playing with people at the ISPA. Yes, Shane will be there. BUT ............ nothing is officially set up yet as far as that scenario goes as Pat has to talk to the ISPA and others about doing this officially. Pat wanted me to let y'all know this.

I will be going over to Pat's shop and taking a couple of pictures for Pat of Shane's cue so I can post it here for you all to see. It is a 16 point cue. 8 up, 8 down. Other details when I get to show you guys the cue for Pat. It should be done in a few days. I'll try to get the pics on here by this weekend for those of you wanting to see it.

I'm having Pat make me another cue for myself that will be done sometime this summer before I start leagues again next fall. It will my 3rd Diveney so far and I see a few more in my future as well. :D

All of this matches what I have heard now up to this date. If SVB is at the ISPA, then I can for sure see some matches w/ Jesse goin off that weekend also. Can't wait to see him play in person.

Pat Diveney also made my cue he is making a 16pt for SVB and if he shows up in IA the TAR crew should come to because there will be alot of action you got Jesse Bowman , John Kacharo, Josh Johhnson and possibly Barraks will be there to play for just the State tourney you will have 3 to 4 of the best bar box players in the us there it should be a blast sign me up:D

If the rumors are true then shane must have gotten cash right.con grads for him and thank god he didn't go with cu-tech or however you spell it .The world would have lost a great money player and gambler..:D

It wouldn't make sense for him if he wasn't getting cash... You are right. For a World Champion to consider committing to a certain cue, he'd have to be paid for it. A free cue isn't the same thing as sponsorship. Right on!

While I don't know the details about Shane's potential deal with Pat D., but I can tell you for certain, that MOST sponsorship with a cue company or cuemaker involves a personal playing cue, and possibly some additional cues to sell. Very few cuemakers or cue companies sponsor players to the tune of big cash, and/or expenses paid.

That may be true in the general world of poolplayers... but this is SVB. He is worth a lot more than that and it would be silly for him not to capitalize on that.

Don't forget Tommy Hernandez, Whitey Walker, Jamie Fenton, and Chad Vilmont. Has anyone heard if they are doin that Pro-Am thing again this year? That would be a killer line up.

I think it's great when a top player can land a nice deal with a production cue line to make some good money, but as someone that appreciates beautiful custom cues, I'm VERY happy to know that Pat Diveney will be making a cue for Shane.
It just pains me so to see a great player shooting with a cheap looking cue.

I can't wait to see pics of the new cue. Like all of Pat's work, I'm sure it's going to be beautiful.

What kind of weight if any do you think Whitey would need from Shane on a big table?

Knock, knock. Please at least ask for this in a PM. No offense meant, but I am sure Whitey doesn't want everyone to know how he plays on here. Especially considering we're talking about matching him up with SVB.

When? Where?

The tournament that was referred to earlier is the ISPA State Tournament in Davenport, Iowa, April 9-13th. There is a Pro-Am division that starts on Friday the 11th. It is open to anyone for a $130 entry fee, or $105 entry fee for ISPA qualified league players. It is a race to 8, 8 ball on bar tables.

I heard from a very good source that Shane will be there and I would imagine most of the Quad Cities players will be there since the tournament is in Davenport.

There is the potential for plenty of action and at the very least a very good state tournament, one of the largest state tournaments in the country, I believe.
