    Can a player hit down ?

    While on this subject, why is a double hit a fowl? What I'm wondering is, what advantage does double hitting the cue ball give a player that would need a double hit to be classified as a fowl?

    Opponent on Cell Phone - Disrespectful ?

    If they're talking on the phone within earshot so you have to listen to the conversation while you're shooting, that's rude and thoughtless. If they step away from the playing area and make or take a quick call, ok, but they should not be holding up the game. If they're out of the way and...
