I don't have the answers and no I couldn't do it better and I am not trying to be overly critical and yes I would rather have this than nothing but this commentating is terrible. Has anyone watched/listened to a different sport on TV? Typically there is a format....maybe a play by play guy, a facts guy, and a color guy that may add slight humor or a very quick "did you know" story. If this was every submitted to a TV station for possible future broadcasting of pool it would be thrown out. I am not going to give examples but if you bought the stream I would like to hear your opinion.

On the Topic of Danny D.! - 01-26-2015, 03:50 PM

Could any of my fellow AZBilliard people please tell me what Tournaments ( Big or Small) that Danny DiLiberto has won in his Pool Career? It seems that he has played every old time player, and won of course, and would like to know a little more about his Career, Thanks!

How many times does Danny have to be wrong to have someone else considered for commentator? He's really starting to get on my nerves. Is he a sacred cow...nobody is. Like the OP, I like Danny, but please, get someone else.

I don't enjoy reading books in the least and can't stick with one but I read this cover to cover and enjoyed every second of it. Absolutely fantastic.

I have been sad since Grady passed, breaking up the best commentary duo ever IMO.

Grady Mathews and Billy Incardona were incredible together, nearly perfect IMO.

Frank and brutally honest, listening to them was like getting your own personal pool lesson every time.

There are several new guys including JoeyA (he was excellent with Danny Harriman IMO), that are improving each time out.

I will second this. That book was excellent and straight to the point. I found it easier to read and more memorable than RA Dyer's hustler days. Which was also a good book, but Danny's storytelling descriptions really work.

And I still find gems in his commentary. In my opinion, keep him around because he is one of the last of that generation of pool players. When he is gone, something special will be missing forever and we can then ponder what is better for the commentary.

Until then, as long as he is physically able to get around, I'll enjoy Danny's descriptions and presence on the accustats DVDs.

Grady was the best....hands down.
To the OP, give Danny a break, he's as old as dirt.LOL

Translated, that means his eyes aren't as good as they used to be.But the knowledge is still there.

I have to agree, I respect my elders but he was brutal yesterday.

He seems to be a little more in his element during the 1 pocket so far, but dang he really likes saying dudes should shoot that 4 railer after the break which I have never seen anyone do. I'm getting to watch Derby matches while I work from home though so I'm in no way complaining.
