Very dissapointed in lee brett. Should be ashamed - 07-20-2013, 05:07 PM

I just read Lee Brett's post on Face Book. He says he let everyone down because he chose to go out last night and get drunk. He also said he could not see the balls and obviously that does not make for playing well. He also said he is sleeping in his car and from another post of his he said he had only $17.00 for food for the next week.

People on these forums came to his aid out of the goodness of their hearts and donated money so he could maybe make some money out in Vegas since the Bonus Ball fiasco. He chose to not do the right thing and wasted the kind efforts of the AZ Billiard community who helped him out. He should be ashamed of himself.

Also if you have enough money to get drunk in Vegas you do not need help for entry. Either you are paying for it or you are at the machines or tables to get free drinks. If you can do either of those you should not be hungry and should not need help for entry fees.

I feel sorry for the people who helped him. Lee give them their money back, all you ever seem to do is come to these forums to tell people how broke you are and to get people to give you, lend you, support you, sponsor you. it is getting old. You should give people their money back since your actions were not the ones of someone people were sponsoring in this event.

Almost every pool player has played drunk and been sleeping in their car and making dinner money playing pool {some of em played jam up,put your big boy pants on buckaroo} Maybe he isn't cut out for the pool life?

I couldn't even fathom going to an important tournament and getting drunk the night before, especially when other people put their money and faith in you. At least Lee can man up though and admit to his mistake

I had ZERO money contributed to the sponsorship. Not that it matters, if someone does something wrong others should know about it so they don't get fooled again. Part of the reason I did not put in was I knew that he had no chance to get in the money and also I have heard too many things to put my money out there. Below is the quote from his face book.



Lee Brett

about an hour ago.



I let everyone down... Went out and got drunk last night... Great way to prepare for my matches.. Couldn't see the balls and i am mad at mytself right now... Needed to drink last night to drown my sorrows from being homeless and having no money is not good right now... when i should of just went to sleep in my car and focused on playing good...

Fair play to him for admitting it.

It appears to me the guy tries so hard to convince people he belongs amongst the pro's when really he is average at best. This kinda adds to that impression.

I once saw Marty Hildabrand drink 31 cans during a tourny and the more lit he got the better he played. He even boasted that if you wanted to beat him you better do it early.

Wow. Both my 'horses' got drunk, one missed their match and it seems the other should have just missed it.

Shame on Lee Brett for asking for a hand out and then being anything but professional.

I suppose that would be fine if you play better drunk but in this case he didn't. I know Lee and I know he has fallen on hard times. However per his own admission he wasn't ready and should have been more professional, especially with other peoples money. Well he will maybe find out the next time he wants a sponsor that he won't have much luck around here. It is a shame and he did admit to his mistakes but that does not make it right. This could have been his chance, I like Lee from what I have known of him so although times are hard you can't do things like this or you will never get ahead. What if a major sponsor was thinking about working with him? Do you think they still would? Lee You got to take every opportunity man and make it work to the best you can buddy. Don't let yourself down.

Eh - doesn't make sense.

He could easily have said, "Sorry guys, played like hippo shit" and left it at that. Nobody would have a clue about drinking (if he really did) or the car (doubt if he did). Maybe he played bad and was just really embarrassed and made up stupid excuses that are back-firing?

I've played SO bad before, I wanted to tell everyone that I was abducted by aliens on my way to the room, experienced lost time, found myself curled up in a ball naked in the woods and then found my cue near a crop circle and then fixed my hair and continued on to play my match... but then again, I was like .... "Shit - it's just easier to say I played bad."

Nobody who gave Lee money is marching up the hill, believe it. Whoever did it, did so to help him play and whatever happened, happened. Hell, we all sponsored Cleary just for something to do -- so what's the difference?? In fact, if Clearly doesn't miss a match because he's drunk -- I'm going to be upset w/ him.

Give me a break.

Lee was prob just embarrassed he played bad.

Such as investing in Lee?

He asked the AZ family for help in his time of "need". Their were a few that obliged him....He let them down. Not winning is acceptable... Acting unprofessional is not.

Please do not try and justify his actions!
