If publicity is your logic for choosing and you toss in just a pinch of chance to win as an ingredient.

Earl is the man!

I know I know he is past his prime some even say he is a bit eccentric.

But if you want to talk publicity come on!

Any pub even bad pub is still pub.

Has anyone been more passionate than Earl during the M cup?

Does anyone really think John would do better then Earl in those circumcisions?

Call me an wild eyed ophthalmologist if you must, I think Earl would satisfy both better then John with all due respect to John and his 625

Earl's play was pretty mediocre in his last Mosconi, which was 2013. John would be a far better choice than Earl.

There are four players that I have confidence in and would like to see on the Cup team. VanBoening, Woodward, Deuel and Thorpe. That last position is a toss up between Roberts and Dominguez. Based on Dominguez's performance in the 2017 Cup, I feel better about Roberts' chances. I also think those five can develop some good chemistry.

Dechaine, Bergman, Strickland and Hatch probably add little to the synergy of a team. I would leave them out.

Just my .02

What is it with people and Earl? No way is he in the top 5 American pool players today, and even if he was, his other characteristics would be so demoralizing to the other players and the fans that he would be a massive liability. I canít understand why people think he would be good for the American team.

SJM yes hitting 'em ok haha. I also do not expect to be at Turning Stone since I'm going to Vegas that same month. I definitely will be at the Ocean State though! Always enjoy pool talk with you. See you soon.

This would make some sense if the Mosconi Cup was struggling for ratings.

Fortunately for us real fans of the game, they aren't.

In a 9-ball race to 100, do you think John would beat Earl?

Earl has intensity and lots of passion.
Earl has ass weights and ain't into fashion.
Earl has finger wraps and sometimes wears an ear muff.
But, Earl wields a long-ass cue and that's enough.
Earl throws things and sometimes doesn't talk clean.
So send Earl to London and "God, save the Queen".

Absolutely no idea. Neither competes at nine ball much anymore and I'd be disappointed if either were selected.
