Just thought I'd bring this thread back to the top because I think that's where Earl resides as far as ALLTIME greatness goes in 9 ball RJ

Strickland in the Hall of Fame - 05-11-2005, 02:02 AM

I attend the US Open every year and if Earl Strickland is playing I always try to get a seat near his match so I can watch one of the best 9 ball players in history. I don't agree with some of the things i've seen Earl do during his matches, but many of those things were brought on by fans more interested in upsetting Earl than watching a good match. Earl brings excitement to pool and whether you're a fan of his or not it's hard to disagree that he has to be one of the best 9 ball players ever. Nobody can match Earl's 9 ball record, period!

Politics plays a huge part in the BCA's hall of fame selection every year. I like Robin Bell and I think she's a credit to pool, but for her to be inducted into the BCA hall of fame before Earl Strickland just doesn't make any sense to me.

Have you ever seen a basesball player call himself out at home plate after the referee said he was safe? The match was refereed and it is up to the Ref to call the foul not the player.

As a gentleman maybe Earl should have called it himself but as a professional player in a professional event it's not up to him.

Earl's got my vote !

Earl should have been in the HOF many many years ago. I am shocked that he was not voted in and question the ballots.

It's obvious to anyone who knows pool that Earl should be a slam dunk for the HOF....I for one would vote for him if I had a vote....although like so many other fans, I have been embarrassed in the past watching his behavior....but I vote for him for his talent and accomplishments; not his antics and misbehavior.....regardless of whether or when he makes it into the HOF, this guy definitely qualifies as a pool legend....his name will stand well beside Mosconi, Lassiter, Greenleaf, Sigel, Hall, Reyes, and all the other greats in pool history, no matter what snubs he may get from the present-day politics of the pool industry.............

JAM being too smart for her own good.

I am sure the Earl HOF dinner got a bunch of "investors" really happy.

As for Earl well, he got a free dinner.

In recent times the BCA did help with the US open issue.

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).

The Champion he has been over the years. It is very wrong for him not to be in "Hall of Fame". Should have happened years ago.
REALLY!

Earl has my vote any day of the week.


To play Pool, is to suffer.
To learn to be a better player, is to find some meaning in the suffering.

He seems to be particularly interested in the ~2005-2006 era. I wonder if there is something to that.

I thought he was genuinely interested initially with his other "dreadgings," then I saw this thread with Earl in there already.

Odd.
