    how are ya'll doing in league ?

    If i recall, an extra timeout isn't actually a foul. Its a sportsmanship violation. And it would have to have been called at the time, not three shots later. Still, it sucks to have that crap happen

    how are ya'll doing in league ?

    I actually played a decent match last Thursday, after a crappy one the previous Tuesday. I've been playing so badly the last two sessions that I'd been considering taking a session off. Nice to play one match that I played reasonably, and beat a tough opponent. I won't take a session off...

    You've been saying all along that you've simply been skeptical, re the JS run. I reserve the same right...

    No, I was never present at a Mosconi exhibition. I'm not of the age to have gone to such. So you are saying everyone, at every Mosconi match, paid rapt attention to every shot? They didn't turn away for hours? Ok. Would it be nice to see the JS run, sure. The guys from the BCA have seen...

    Fixing the game of 9 ball.

    Full disclosure, I'm a nobody. I just watched Spain vs Great Britain A, World Cup. Matchroom. That match, 9-ball wasn't "broken". No break and runs in the frames I saw (the last 10 racks). Several breaks, no ball was made. One or two pushes. A few safeties, a couple (unsuccessful) jump...

    The fact remains that there can be as much "doubt" about those witnesses attention to the details and every shot of the run, as the ones that keep being brought up about JS. I don't for a moment doubt the Mosconi run. I just find it hypocritical to throw the slings and arrows at the BCA...

    It'll be a hit at league pool, certainly :p

    I still think its silly to believe that the people who signed the Mosconi affidavit watched every shot of his run, at the level of scrutiny that Lou is suggesting needs to be available to ensure that there was no fouls or other hanky panky. I'm skeptical that any of them watched all 526 shots...

    What do you guys do when you get carded?

    Just carry your ID. How frigging difficult is that? Complaining about places that do and places that don't is silly. Its on them if they want to risk their license. Why not just be prepared, since that's what we're all supposed to be, instead of making this about the ones that actually do...

    What do you guys do when you get carded?

    Yes, you are crazy for not carrying your ID, especially if you are going to go into a place that is REQUIRED to make sure the patrons are of legal drinking age. The state doesn't care that you aren't there to drink. And the bar owner values his license to sell liquor far more than your...

    So if the Smithsonian displays anything related to the JS run, will that be acceptable to you? As opposed to the BCA certification, Nick Varner, Mark Wilson, etc...just trying to ascertain who is to be believed, and who isn't. :)

    Fargo rating mistake / possible shadiness?

    Just so you know, Mike Page has been replying in this thread. He is the person to address these questions to. He created Fargo and maintains it. To say he's the authority on Fargo is an understatement. :p

    How Does an APA 7 Go Down to a 6?

    We have a couple people in our league division that are Fargo 630-640 or so...they are fun to watch and play against. I know there are others in our LO's territory that are that level or higher, spread around various divisions. Its nice having better players to watch and play against.

    How Does an APA 7 Go Down to a 6?

    I have a SL4 on my team who has been SL4 for probably close to 20 years now, over 600 matches. Its a running joke that he is a lifer at that Skill Level. And guess what? That's where he should be. He can catch fire in a game or two, and play with higher level players, but he comes crashing...

    How Does an APA 7 Go Down to a 6?

    It would stick out, in our room. If the LO, or someone that doesn't play in the league that we don't know, is there and watching matches, we'd all be wondering. Especially the LO, but he could be there under the guise of a meeting, I suppose....were he to actively start watching a match, I'd...
