Me: Buddy. I got to ask you something.
BH: Whats that?
Me: The Challenge of Champions against Mike LeBron, was it a dump?? You know people think it was. Now Buddy, this is for me only. I just want to know and I will never speak a word of it to ANYONE if you tell me you dumped and if I do you can call me a liar.
BH: Mark, it wasn't a dump, I dogged my brains out. That all.

I left it at that. Maybe he didn't trust me to tell me, maybe it's one of those secrets that you just can never tell anyone or maybe he was just telling the truth. He could have told me if it happened. Just my 2 cents for what its worth.
Having watched it a few times, it wasn't just one shot. There were several, including obvious attempts to scratch. Still think he dumped.

Did Mike Lebron ever say anything about the "alledged" dump or was he in on it?

Mike Sigel used to say "it's all in the stars" and after many years I think it may be "fate," or some other esoteric factor. 'The Game is the Teacher'
i canno think of a shot I have not seen missed in this game.

ASs myu old buddy Danny Medina used to say," I have missed many that were harder to miss than to make'!

It's the 8/9 combo in game 17 that gives it away.

After missing the 8 ball he didnt think he would have left mike such a bad leave on the 8, so when mike missed it, buddy had no choice but to make it and send the game hill hill

people find it hard to admit to dumping

early mma (then known as nhb) had a fair amount of dumping

a well known fighter in his day took a huge dive for a huge paycheque on a huge stage, everyone knew but he still will not admit it to this day

You talking about Coleman?

With early MMA it wasn't so much dumping as it was pro-wrestling style works. Seeing as how the sport in Japan spawned as an MMA/pro-wrestling hybrid, you can see why a lot of early fights were works and accept it a lot easier. I think at least.

In terms of this example, forget about the shots themselves. Buddy Hall's bad acting gives it away way more than the difficulty of the shots he misses.

ya Coleman, lol

and it was a straight dump to Takada, I've spoken personally to almost everyone involved (attended alot of Pride events but not that one unofrtunatley and access to the fighters was pretty easy both in the arena and the hotels)

having said that, nobody said shit against Pride in the day ...Yakuza affiliations and what not, would be interesting to see if Mark fessed up now

This is one very funny post. The funniest conversation since Kay asked Michael if he whacked Carlo.

Kay: Did you do it?

Michael Corleone: No.

True enough and I agree with you, as I wrote. I just don't think the 8 ball miss was telling enough. I've missed that particular shot before when trying to punch it and stay for the 9 ball and shooting
off the rail trying to keep the cueball from hitting the 9.

I still think he tried to scratch when shooting the 7 and then simply missed the 8 but we'll never know. Here's the 8 ball shot he missed.

I was there 10' away from the table. I KNOW what I saw and I also know the truth about this travesty. So please spare me the crap. It was a black mark on the sport!

Thanks Jay...........It is kinda amusing to see how people try to spin it off as something innocent........even the lesser skilled among us who play pool
could see something so obviously bad...I'm just referring to myself as the lesser skilled player, by the way.....

Yes, everyone has a right to believe that every football game, boxing match and basketball game that they lose betting on is "a dump"......some humans even believe wilder things.

The fact is Buddy dogged it, and so did Mike....plain and simple.

The Facts are that "Vegas" continued putting the line up as if nothing happened and I saw that with my own eyes at a subsequent 'Challenge of Champions' that I PLAYED IN.

I have a feeling that there were "savers" made by many of the players, but believing the entire tournament was "rigged" is ludicrous, I know this is a fairy tale for sure.

Ok, I got no dog in this fight, but how did so many greats suddenly "dog it" in the same tournament, to the same guy ? The odds are astronomical, or LeBron has a horse shoe shoved so far up his arse, it will never see the light of day again

I like your "fairy tale" as well.
My advice to you CJ is stick to what you know and not what you think.
