I would like to accept Stan's $5,000 challenge - 03-19-2019, 10:09 AM

I would LIKE to accept the challenge but nobody seems to know exactly what it is. It seems to be more of a weapon used to make "skeptics" look like they don't really understand anything. What is the challenge, Stan? It might be fun to do. Few questions:

1. Who is the judge of success or failure,
2. Who holds the cash,
3. What are the specifics of the actual challenge,
4. Is there a time limit for submission,
5. Will there be multiple payouts possible if more than one person gets it right?

Thanks.

This, I believe, is a losing proposition. You've already lost, regardless of whether or not your explanation of CTE is accurate. The reason why is because the judge will most likely be someone who has spent the last several years working with CTE, 100% indoctrinated. I think you'll have a slim to zero chance of getting a nonpartisan judgment. I mean, look how the whole "throw" topic worked out.

I dunno. Depends on the actual requirement and who the judge is. For example, if the challenge is to accurately describe and perform each step in the process and the moderator is someone who both sides believe is an independent, trusted person, then it could work.

Oh. You have a point there. I was thinking you'd have to describe exactly how it works. Just doing the steps is quite simple, but doing them in a manner that gives accurate and consistent results takes practice. So if they'll overlook your lack of practicing the method, you should do a fine job.

If the challenge is really true, I think Stan is shooting himself on the foot .

He put out TWO DVD's and I don't know how many YT videos.
Does that mean one cannot explain CTE after watching all that video ?

Since it is an objective system, there shouldn't a different point of view from shooter to shooter, dun't it ?

Go do it. What's stopping you? Stan is easy to get a hold of.

And don't be asking questions on here. Stan doesn't post here. Call him or contact him somehow

What happens if the guy taking the test executes perfectly... and then can't make a ball?

not too farfetched

The negotiations oughta be entertaining - but I wouldn't get my hopes up that they'll lead anywhere. The ultimate judge of whether or not Stan loses his $5K will inevitably be Stan himself.

lol.

Just days before our match JB claimed to have spent 15 hours with Stan learning the nuances of Pro1. I heard that and actually said to myself, "Thank you, Baby Jesus."

The Lurkers are seeing the true colors of the naysayers here. Stan doesn't post here. That's why these babies post this shit.

As usual the facts say otherwise. From a couple of days ago:

Of course there's always "Pete Lowenstein" to fall back on as well lol.

Not to mention all the uber-low post count guys that somehow manage to find their way to this forum buried deep in the bowels of AZ and are amazingly conversant about CTE, lol.

Your obsession with Stan and CTE is off the charts. Are you English Rick's twin brother?
