Of course Earl should be in the Hall of Fame! That's not even a close call! He may have had a couple of his least precious moments, occur under a lot of scrutiny! I think we all have some moments in time that we'd rather have seen work out differently, but Earl is one of the greatest players to EVER play the game! He definately deserves his place in the HOF!

I think the majority of the pool-playing public views the BCA Hall of Fame as the ultimate award and should be given to a deserving champion player or contributor to the sport.

I think Earl Strickland and Allen Hopkins, another very worthy candidate, recognize the BCA for what it is: a trades-based organization consisting of industry members with a mission to benefit THEIR needs.

Though some may feel the BCA is not giving Earl his fair due, it could be that the players themselves may not regard the BCA in the same light and do not feel sleighted in the least.

Food for thought is who receives the most benefit in the BCA when a worthy candidate is elected in the BCA Hall of Fame. It ain't the awardee (IMO).

Earl getting voted into the HOF isn't a matter of IF, but simply WHEN.

Earl "The Pearl" Strickland should gain automatice entry into the H.O.F for being the person he IS and not what the H.O.F wants him to be.

We need characters in the game to liven it up. Like Dennis Rodman in basketball, Eric Cantona in football, Mohamned Ali in Boxing and John McEnroe in Tennis! what would the game be like without them?

Earl is in a class of his own, love him or hate him, you got to respect him, 5 US open titles? Just try defending one of them!

My vote goes to Mr Earl Stickland from North Carolina! "The Pearl" in the world of cue sports....

Cheers,
Wizardry

The only problem with that is that peoples memories are short. The Trade show happens many months before the vote. Contact the BCA and find out when the ballot goes out and send a mailing to all right before asking them to vote for Earl. Could probably do that cheap enough.

Is it possible sometime in the past Charlie had said to Earl "the ref didn't see it?"

He's got my vote. I cannot think of anyone who deserves it any more than "The Pearl".

Attitude has nothing to do with talent and skill. Look at football players, baseball players, et cetera. They aren't disqualified for their personalities. Even those who don't like Earl's attitide want him in the HoF! That should indicate something!

BTW, I've been in his company, and he was a gentleman.

AND YES, HE HAS MY VOTE!

I was just thinking and if I were Earl, I wouldn't want in the hall of fame. Not yet! Heck I'm older than he is and I don't want in the hall of fame for anything. People in the Hall of Fame are 'over the hill'. I not dead yet. Putting him in the hall of fame is like saying, 'Your all washed up so we'll give you a little award'. I personally don't think Earl is done yet. I guess there would be some pride in being in the hall of fame when your still young enought to kick ass.
