I think he was hamming it up. Maybe he has an ego, but someone really has to generally be a pos before I think of them as classless

Pool and many other sports have one thing in common. If one is very good at their chosen sport, it almost makes no difference how they behave.

They are just emotional and passionate and caught up in the heat of the moment and their fans forgive and over look their self serving acting out and poor sportsmanship.

Well, there are more important things in life then being good at a sport. Ones character comes to mind. Ay my age I know a dip shit when I see one.

Best wishes and Merry Christmas!

Maybe I’m wrong but I don’t remember ever seeing him show boat like that at any other tournament . At the mosconi in front of that crazy crowd you get a pass.


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

If you live with one foot in the future and one in the past you'll piss all over the present.

I enjoyed it a lot! Even though the crowd was pulling against USA a lot of times, it was fun to watch. I only wish I was there. I loved the singing in the audience between racking.

Jayson is a cool cat as far as I'm concerned. A lot of males don't like him because he is not afraid to show his strength and bravado. Some men feel threatened when another man shows too much. It's the male dog syndrome. Some males always want to be the alpha dog.

Where are the thugs these days, the guy who uncork on someone when they get out of line. It’s the same as all the folks constantly stiffing someone or pulling some shady moves. Time and time again you see the same ol clowns pulling the same ol stunts. I guess the days of someone getting pancaked on the spot are over, because the “pool player code” allows the derelicts to run amock with no consiquences.
Yes, Shaw was complaining about SVB racks in a RYO 9-ball tournament. He made SVB re-rack and still didn't like it. SVB broke and ran that rack. The next rack Shaw inspected the rack and when SVB was getting down to break, Shaw swept the balls and unscrewed his cue. Don't remember the score at the time, but believe the incident is on youtube.

Shane also had a similar incident at a tournament overseas in Asia against Ronnie Alcano. In this tournament the 10-ball had to be called. SVB had straight in 10-ball. The ball was about a foot from the pocket and he didn't call it. Ronnie called him on it and the ref called a foul. SVB just unscrewed his cue and forfeited the match.

Everyone has their moments. I don't care for Shaw, but believe he was just playing a role. He was the first European player to congratulate Sky for the MVP. And I really hope Bergman torches him again in Feb.

Jayson plays the role of 'Villain' quite well. He is a showman, and a true entertainer. You could tell by the smirk on his face, while Sky celebrated his victory, that Jayson's antics are all for show.

I believe that he pays attention to what people say about him, and he feeds into it. I believe that he is likely just as entertained by the nonsense as the rest of us.

I don't know what they feed the Euro folks over there...but boy are they ever ugly. Between their teeth, Shaw's bat ears, their pathetic attempt at Euro pride...it's just laughable really.

Glad their luck finally ended. Super happy for SVB. He really wanted that combo.

Predator mindset - 12-10-2018, 11:27 AM

Some players relentlessly stalk their opponents watching for a chance to pounce. Others are clinical and passionless. They embrace the challenge of the table. Others target getting into the other player’s mind. That tactic often involves trash talk and other sharking moves. Those tactics are outlawed in league and tournament rules. Throwing a player off their rhythm is still often employed. But the time clock in some events stops that as well. However, choosing to tie a player up rather than run the balls is often used to get into heads once their extension is used can tactically get into a player’s head. Their chances seem non-existent and when one does finally occur its importance can seem to be magnified. I find Jayson Shaw to fall into the first category. The no mercy, in for the kill type of player. There is also an element of the surgical passionless table presence, with no regard for the opponent, just the table.

What I find disrespectful and classless, is someone simply implying something by questioning. The fact that a question was asked infers that it is an issue that should be addressed. Combine that with misspelling a persons name reveals more about the person doing the asking than the question. And it doesn’t reveal class.

I under what you mean by misspelling someone's name but, most people dont do that on purpose as they know it only reflects on them, not on the subject.

I highly doubt the OP misspelled his name on purpose.

As a matter of fact, I've seen his name misspelled at more than one tournament.

You assume, IMO, a little to much. If the OP is like yourself, he may assume you are a fan of Shaw's and are butthurt over his performance........ or should I say say the lack of?


I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

The Shaw/Sky finish was absolutely perfect for this event. Matchroom couldn't have scripted it better. It was high drama, and villain and his foil, one full of bravado and the other bringing him down a peg or two, getting his just due.

My favorite thing to have seen in pool, ever. The whole package, the play, the drama...perfect.

Should every tournament be that way? I don't think it would work. But for this event...very, very cool stuff.

Do you really believe 8 straight years of winning the cup was just a luck?
