Agreed, and he's a great player to watch, too. Must not be coming to Derby. His team barked at every top player (no exceptions) there last year but nobody would play him until Josh Filler stepped...

The picture's caption refers to legendary referee "Cue Ball Kelly" as Charles Kelly. This was not his real name, but it was, instead, Carl Zingale.

Think I'm OK with the decision to play the carom here, Brian. Even if he cut in the five, he might not clear the eight and if he doesn't, he'll likely be in a bad spot. Even if he does clear it,...

Your post was not ambiguous. It referred clearly and specifically to CTE as it relates to the NFL, and that's both a sad and serious situation.
