Always speak up. That's part of the system too. Bring attention to those who might not be playing fairly. Also part of the system is the LO, and a good one will know what to do with your feedback....

I get it. Being surrounded by high balls after making most of the low balls on the break is bad luck, but making most of the low balls on the break is skill.

There's more skill in making the 8 on...

That's BS. Somebody wins every year, and somebody usually does get disqualified. Usually one, maybe two in 9-Ball and as many as three in 8-Ball, and they all deserve it.

As many as 5 out of...

It's nothing like yours. Only first, second, and thirteenth place are the same.

I don't think KMRUNOUT was bashing the APA or our handicapping system. He was commenting on the LO, who should have seen that the match ups dictated who he put up in that fourth match. It often...

No, he's not. This rule was re-worded in the latest edition of the team manual. It now says it's a loss if you don't mark the pocket and your opponent calls loss of game. That gives the opponent...
