    Jenn Barretta Pro player... REALLY?

    I know she has fans out there but come on. I'm watching her play at TS against a very low level player and she is struggling. The level of play is mid level league play at best. She is supposed to be a PRO?? I would be ashamed to call myself a pro with a straight face if I were her. This match...

    Oscar D Just posted on his facebook that there are $$ issues at the open already. Im imagine he would not say anything unless he or his dad were involved. Since Earnesto did well but not in the top 4 he may not have been paid. WOW!

    Team USA telling results at the US Open?

    So based on what we know about the Mosconi Cup and their rules for breaking, this years US Open has many of the same kind of rules. With that in mind I noticed that team USA are not doing as well as I would have liked to have seen. Just meaning that a few of the players lost their first round...

    World 14.1 Tourny Seems a little different from the flyer

    I could be wrong on this so please let me know. I just saw the flyer on Facebook and the header says "Dr Michael Fedick Presents" Now I know the good Dr has been the money behind this event for a while now but to my memory it has always been a Dragon Promotions event. I see Dragon's logo at the...

    Anyone got any info on Jr Players in Colorado having problems?

    Someone brought it to my attention that a group of Jr players in Colorado lost their sponsorship for expenses a week before the Jr Nationals. Just wondering if they have managed to raise the money needed as they were doing fund raisers. Hope it works out for them.

    If it is just me I will STFU but I saw that Lee Brett and Daniel from POV pool are doing a Pay Per View. 3 days charging $50?? Efren and Earl match was less than that. Is it their egos that think they can charge that much?? Do they really think they are worth more that Earl and Efren??? This...

    Dechaine OWNED off the table too.

    Di anyone see the banter before the TAR match last night while the were warming up? It started light hearted but as it went on it got more like they were getting some things off their chest. I don't remember the whole back and forth but a classic line that put Mike on his heels a little was when...

    I can't believe people try to hurt others in the pool biz but it seems the do

    Very dissapointed in lee brett. Should be ashamed

    I just read Lee Brett's post on Face Book. He says he let everyone down because he chose to go out last night and get drunk. He also said he could not see the balls and obviously that does not make for playing well. He also said he is sleeping in his car and from another post of his he said he...

    What do Professional players do when they are out of the game?

    Just wondering what the future holds for many of the Pros of today. I think we know that a few from the past have taken measures to make sure they had something to fall back on but not all of them. So wondering what are the old time pros doing now and what will people like Shane, Appleton, Mika...

    Does your League Operator act like a Dictator?

    I have seen and heard of a few League Operators that make the rules as they want to satisfy their own needs. Also some that go out of their way to hurt a competitor who runs another league in town. Some of what I hear is downright childish and vindictive. I imagine most are not like this but the...

He just was thrown to the lions a little here with this enviroment at York Hall. He has won some tounaments but nothing really big in front of the cameras with an audience...

This brings the event down from a fans point of view and it sure changes the atmosphere at the event. Hopefully this poll with show the distain the avid pool fan had for him and...

If there is an aiming thread someone gets bashed, cue makers getting bashed (sometimes rightfully so), leagues APA,BCA bashed.
