Ratamon,

That's funny, man. Would you believe that in the last year I had proposed on one pocket.org a rule they ended up calling the "moving forward" rule that worked just like you described....

Larry,

I try to be nice to you, but you make it very hard to do. I have NO idea what your CASE is. You have added nothing to the discussion to consider other than your "brick wall" defense of the...

Appreciate that Ratamon, that's all I can expect. Consider how many situations the incoming player would actually return the shot. I don't think it would be that many. I think it would be limited to...

Larry,

This is a thread about a potential rule change for one pocket: you don't have to respond. If you have nothing to say about my suggestion as to WHY you think it is not reasonable why do you...

Appreciate your thought. The option that I am suggesting could apply to any foul whether a pocket scratch or failing to get a rail after contact or anything else. I don't consider the option a...

That may be true. But, how do you think any rule change gets started or done. Just recently the "rerack" rule has been implemented. There have been several rules changes made to various pool games...

Larry,

If you wanna leave things to a negotiation between the two players, we do not need any rules at all, right. Brilliant.

We have rules for every game, and I am not trying to mandate...

I"m sorry. It seems your logic is flawed. You are happy with the player getting rewarded for simply "tapping" the CB exactly where the other player left him after playing a legal (valid) shot? But,...

Larry,

I am not trying to help the weaker player at the expense of the stronger player. I am trying to remove intentional "touch" fouls being rewarded in situations where there is a spot involved....

My suggested rule to allow the incoming player the option to return the shot to the player who committed the foul does NOT distinguish between intentional and unintentional fouls. It applies across...

Bob,

I appreciate that you had at least a partially open mind in your earlier post #53. When thinking about this I thought about how we used to play push out nine ball before TV ruined that game....

Larry,

Of course not, however he never does it accidently or other than "on purpose". He only does it when he needs to do it, obviously.

There is NEVER a situation where there is NOTHING else....

Ratamon,

You are correct that there are times when one would want to lag behind some balls. I would do nothing to stop that or any other legal shot you would want to make. If you get a rail after...

Part of the game and part of the spot is i can give you 9/7 and at anytime I please I can change the game to 11/9, or I can do it again to 13/11? Really?

Please explain what you think is "strategic" about in your above example the player just touching the CB, and what that adds to the game. I think it is simply a "cop out" that says rather then take...

I lived in the FT Lauderdale area from 1980 to about 2010, and saw him play a few times.

I got a story about Toby second hand from the guys that owned Q-Stix in Pompano Beach. Supposedly Toby was...
