    Time out forum

    There should be a timeout forum imo for guys like Fastlarry, JaimeMcworter, etc etc they may have ruffled some feathers but they were entertaining and sometimes very thought provoking. If posters abuse the posting guidlines don't send em to hell just purgatory.

    I see both sides

    The pros do have a point, and those using the excuse "well barry always paid before" does not hold water imo there has been late US open payments along with the master's debacle. Five years ago who would have ever thought that Tony Annigoni woulda stiffed tournament players? It only takes one...

    Well since I am snowed in I thought I would share a past memory of one of the alltime great players and personalities of the game. It was around 1992 or 1993 I believe the former because Cornbread didn't yet finish second to Champagne Eddie in Grady's big 1 pocket tourney. Red made the jaunt...

    Everyone, I have always wanted to see pool's most known record (Mosconi running 526) challenged and possibly eclipsed. I have been an avid player and lifelong fan of pool. I am very fortunate to be in a financial position to do something in pool for both mine and "the pool world's"...
