Sorry, but pool does not rank very high on the athletic skill meter... just a fact, does not mean we can't still love it. You know what tennis, baseball, and basketball players make MILLIONS, cause not many folks can do what they do.

A baseball player signed a $325M contract over the winter. I'm willing to bet that is more money than every pro pool player made combined, since the history of the sport

I hear ya, and I agree with what you're saying. What I'm saying, and what the question was in regard to is the execution of the specific skills for each game, not the opponents. If you hit a tennis ball against a wall so it comes back, how hard is that to execute a return? That's the comparison to pool itself. In tennis the racket is several times larger than the ball so making accurate contact with the ball is far easier than hitting a CB with ~13mm diameters. Get it?

You're kidding, right?

That's like someone lining up a 6" straight-in pool shot and saying "What's so hard about this?"

I could teach a semi-pro tennis player to play competitive pool in six months. Do the same with a semi-pro pool player and he'd get murdered on the tennis court even after years of lessons.

I don't think you guys understand. Professionally playing those games is hard because the COMPETITION IS TOUGH...not that the games are inherently tough to play. There's a difference and you guys are arguing the wrong damn point.

ALL I know is what I can and did do, whether YOU accept it or not, that's on YOU!

I don't know YOU from Adam, But, if I was forced to make a bet, I'd wager I have gambled MORE in my life than YOU on our respective abilities!

Now, anytime YOU want to get back on topic, just let me and the rest of the members know!

now you see how foolish what you wrote sounds.

I hate when people get so "uptight" about what I post. Wen, wen, wen.
Maybe it time for you to go play in traffic, with your eyes closed.
Yep, that's why I posted that because I just love, the APA league scores posts.

Isn't that why they have an aiming sub-forum for aiming posts.
But maybe because it bothers you, if you ask nicely they will change it just so you will stop whining.
You were the one who started whining to begin with crying about this topic not being in the aiming forum.

Yeah, that's the point: aiming methods aren't inherently better or worse than each other; they just work better or worse for different players.

(What it's NOT...)

- Riddles about how cue sports and golf are "the only 2 games where the ball is sitting still, and the player propels it with a stick!" (even though as another poster pointed out T-Ball and croquet would also qualify).

- Arguing your self inflated golf prowess (which is magically 1 shot better than the person he is engaged in the "mine's bigger than yours" contest with) and dropping names so hard his back must STILL be sore.

- Yet another "mine's bigger..." argument. This time "I have gambled more than you...yadda, yadda, blow hard...yadda." As If that is some badge of courage worth bragging about. YAY! You just might be a degenerate gambler.

- And finally...Accusations about how OTHERS are hopelessly off topic, get this, because HE (and other posters) would like to refrain from being subjected to this practice.

Does that about sum it up?

So, its the competition that makes those other sports tough? Not the fact you have to hit a tennis ball 100mph or more, which pretty much eliminate 99% of the population. So, what exactly about pool is so inherently "tough" to play ? I know guys that are 75 pounds over weight, drink several beers during play, and shoot with a cigar hanging out of their mouth, and play quite sporty ! yes, tough indeed

If baseball were "easy" they would NOT hand out contracts worth $325M dollars. But there are only a handful of guys on the planet that can do what that guy does.... Think about it.....a handful, on the entire fuggin planet.
