As well as the hoopla made about players on the team in question that weren't raised in skill level, like the team's skill-level 2, Ariah Parker. But leave it to the personalities on AzB to find someone or something to bash, even if it's off topic.

It's been a stretch of time since it was first posted, so it may be a helpful reminder to some what this thread was supposed to be about (the team didn't create this thread btw), and the clarifications about some of the misinformation that was being spread.

Post #166:
https://forums.azbilliards.com/showt...67#post6461867

I encourage folks to review post #166, as it will help clear up many things. Not asking for any kind of pity, btw, as it is what it is. In fact, for me, it helps refocus me on the games I actually love, and I will be returning to the local tournament scene as well. There are positives here, and that's what I choose to take away from all this.

Best,

Not sure why you singled out my comment. In fact, my contributions to this thread were to get the facts straight and un-lynch the lynch mob.

You might have missed one of my posts where I already said, what you just said, in the first paragraph (above).

I singled out yours exactly for that reason -- that you were singling out me with critiques (or innuendos?) about my being a 100-ball runner in 14.1, yet only an SL-6 in APA. There are a couple reasons why that is which I could get into -- not the least of which is that 8-ball is not my preferred game and my break frankly sucks (is a sell-out, almost everytime) in comparison to the SL7s in my area here -- but meh, what difference would that make? Drama is drama, after all, and that's the lifeblood of AzB.

I do appreciate the attempts to de-equip the lynch mob, though. But as you can see, this thread is just fodder for bashing.

I now see your edits to the post after I'd replied, so to be fair, I acknowledge your efforts -- thank you.

I think where that started was not with you, but with Shawn Armstrong, and you seemed to chime in with the head-scratching:

Like I said, i gave hard facts, when the lynch mob was making assumptions. There really wasn't much opinion, good or bad, in my posts.

Also, I dont know if you are a 100 ball runner or not. I didnt bring it up, I just questioned it.

No worries.

"our 4 had a 2-2 record and was raised anyway. Others had a 1-2 record and were raised"

That's why I'm still convinced the team got screwed.

Can someone post the criteria by which the APA raises or lowers handicaps at the national tournament or do they just make it up as they go?

Player........... road line with 12.9 revo and 314/3

Yep, reading comprehension isn't his strong suit.

Reading comprehension is terrible on this site.
If it was better you would have asked this thread be removed due to the inaccuracies posted by youknowwho.

It's weird... I seem to remember reading trob's posts from a while back, and getting the impression that he was at least a shortstop level player. His support of APA, and calling barbox 8 ball a "kid's game" seems to indicate otherwise?

Anyone know trob's Fargorate?

Ooooh... You seem to have a hard on for me. If that's not your persuasion, you should get that looked at. I've heard they have church-run therapies for that kinda thing these days...

I believe I said that I did not have all the information, and that someone would be around with the more complete story. Also, while I was incorrect about Sean being on the team, it's a minor point. It was a team ASSOCIATED with Sean, and he was vouching for their honesty of play.. THAT was the main point. And the APA stole a title from that team because of their own lame-ass handicapping system, that doesn't work.

I have been on az for a minute and have seen your posts go from pretty good to sad. You can do better. Its a shame this thread continues.
