Mark is great for the sport of pool. He will have players that can compete. They will represent themselves and who they are playing for with class. They will win and lose graciously. POOL NEEDS MORE MARK WILSON'S!!!

I agree, but that doesn't make every decision a correct one. I think Mark let personal feelings influence the selection process. I'm not saying we would win but choosing Schmidt and not even looking at MD deserves some skepticism. I'm not a MD hugger but I am aware of our Best players. I think Mark is great but the player selection is a little hard to understand .

I also think Mark Wilson is a good guy, but his method of just choosing a select 8 players and then locking everyone else out many months before the Mosconi Cup makes zero sense to me.

And just look at how his chosen few are performing, no use that they may all get along, they still need to play pool at a world class level.

You can argue that and could have some evidence to back it up like some players might be better than the ones he picked. But I for one would not second guess Mr. Wilson. I think he has done a tremendous job and I hope he will continue next year. I heard him talk about their training sessions and how they were able to measure the players progress. It sounds like he has some really great ideas on how to manage this team and has confidence in what he is doing. I believe it is a job well done no matter how the results are at the end of the contest. And the result that has already been made is we are in the 4th day of the Cup and the USA still has a shot. Considering how strong the European team is I think that is very good.

Why spend one second second guessing his selections? Would anybody question selecting Shane? Of course not. However, if it was known he was going to play the way he has, he'd have been left at home.

Consider this. If Shane had played like the best player in the world instead of how he has, you could easily argue for a 3 match swing. That would make it 8-7 in favor of the USA right now instead of 10-5. What would everybody be saying about his picks if that had happened? So how can people nitpick his choices when the one choice everybody would agree upon has completely shit the bed?

I second MD being there over John. Bergman has a beautiful game, but he and John seem to be the most uncomfortable in this stage.

Maybe John, Cory, and Bergman should have been part of the coaching staff...LOL

All we know of Marks thinking is what he personally made public. We know very little else.
None of us were on a conference call or in the room where discussions or decisions were made prior to Dec.1

Couldn't have picked the players any worse. Not being results oriented, but how were 2 of better rotation players all year MD/JS left off?? You can make arguments for any case but the bottom line is this-ITS about performance. I think the captain made the biggest mistake by not performing well in the beginning before anyone got a ball

There is not a scintilla of evidence to back up anyone claiming Mark's personal feelings came into play. In fact, he told JB that he would look at him harder than anyone else because people would wonder if their history would unduly influence his choice.

As others here have testified, Mark's ethics are unimpeachable. And as someone who has known him for over 15 years, I can say that I doubt you could find a single individual, anywhere, who has known him, that would say anything different.
