Why have them play each other then negate the results and call them invalid....

They never even announced the possibility of revival of the dead...

I understand your argument and itís valid. Unfortunately they will be playing team Europe and not each other. Plus this call is about who is hot NOW.

This time I'll better just say I'm so anxious and looking forward to this MC with the best (imho) production quality Matchroom always offers to the viewers. If there is one single pool event which has the best chances to gain the kids attention then it's definitely MC and what is the future of the sport without kids coming?
There were upsets in both teams when it comes to the last spot but all I hope to see one more competitive cup with some drama till the end and let the better team win


Playing cue: 62" full spliced player I''ve built for myself
Break cue: made by myself

Takes a lot of patience to watch that guy play.
That can also backfire on someone who is forced to play out of their comfort zone.

I don't like slow play either, but with a shot clock, he's forced to choose his attack, sometimes, before he's ready. I honestly think this was his problem on his last visit.

As you add "life is not always fair, rules/protocol get broken from time to time," it shows that you appreciate ad understand the situation. I also haven't read of anyone suggesting that Bergman doesn't give Team USA a better shot than Eberle or Deuel, We all get that, too.

As one of the "never will be happy" crowd as you label us, I just feel that the selection process needs greater definition and refinement for 2020, to be fair to future Mosconi hopefuls. As for 2019, Bergman is on the team and it's time for American fans to root for him and Team USA.

That said, though, but to be unconcerned about possible ramifications of inadherence to the selection rules as announced by Johan and Jeremy is, in my opinion, shortsighted.

Yours, Stu (proud member of the "never will be happy" gang)
Thanks for the response, your opinions and insight are valued. Upon reflection I do agree it might be short sighted but am still excited to see Bergman make it. Maybe in the future they will simply just be free to choose whomever they think will benifit the team regardless of tournaments and team training attended. Thanks for you time. No matter who or how I'm behind our boys 100%.
