As it turns out, that player was video recording the break, and sure enough, upon review of the footage (no pun intended), it is indeed quite evident that, a la DeLuna, both of the breaker’s feet were well off the floor. The referee (who’s never liked you anyway cuz of that thing with his ex-wife) declares a foul, awarding the other team ball in hand.
Is this a possible scenario?
To anyone’s knowledge has this ever happened?
When a breaker entirely leaves the floor like this does termination of contact only occur AFTER contact with the cueball?
Enquiring minds wanna know.
I have had quite a few times when I slipped after a shot I was stretching for and both feet left the table after the shot on the follow through, never had anyone call a foul on that. Does seem something like a league player would try to call a foul on though LOL seems half of them are just worried about handicaps and the other half are trying to win by messing with the rules.
