You guys are right. It's not all about money. People can blow their money any way they like. And gosh darn it the money supports pool so why not?

"The nobody that won nothing" that could refer to quite a few coaches too wouldn't you agree?

I wonder how many coaches joined the tour, is taking someone's money for a lesson promoting the game?

My local golf course offers free lessons to kids in HS and middle schoolers, I have seen some professional pool coaches do the same, that is promoting the game IMO, taking someones money(who plays better than the coach), not so much in my opinion.

No, I would NOT agree. Just shows you have no idea of what your talking about. He's the one complaining abot leagues and coaches... usually they come from nobodies that won nothing. And you know I'm right, must be why you had to jump in to answer for him. lol

Of course, you are free to tell us what you've done for pool as well. I'll wait, take your time.

I am not demonizing anyone, please quote me where I am demonizing someone, lmfao

maybe you think you are a great promoter of pool because you sell chalk, I dunno.

is charging someone for a lesson promoting pool or themselves more, if you disagree with my opinion, well that must mean "you have no idea of what your talking about", cause only people who agree with you know what they are talking about right?

I rebuilt a pool hall, literally from ashes....just for old timers and guys who can run out from everywhere. We hosted 5 open tournaments with top pros playing exhibitions free of charge to spectators in the room and online. Had SVB, Shaw, Strickland, Immonen, Hatch, Thorpe, Morra and Horliefson.

Other than that, nothing just like you. You have 50 times the posts I do so I guess that makes you sherriff around here.

I play pool because I enjoy it. I don't give a damn if I win a dime. If I win enough to pay for my entry fee, drinks, food, and basically break even for the night, I'm happy as a clam. If I don't win anything, I'm happy as a clam. I just like to play.

Wow, all the negativity. If you donít like leagues donít play. It helps keep the sport alive bottom line. And absolutely what buckshot is saying 100%!!

I asked why I can't uncheck that box. The reply was "The un-check box isn't working right now. We have a bug fix coming for it with our next release." So there you have it.

They get out on a Mon thru Thurs when nothing is going on, hang with friends, and support pool.

They are the ones keep the pool rooms open. Oh, those Sat tourneys will NOT keep the place open by having tables sitting there all week and nobody using them. Yeah, the owner will really love that. And when he doesn't put money in the kitty for the Saturday tourney, folks will b1tch about that. So, he's got to pay for the privilege of folks showing up for a tourney. And when the 2 and out, they are not spending much money.
Well stated.

I'm not fond of leagues in the least unless it's a 14.1 or American Rotation league. If its 14.1 or AR, well, I'm all in but, those leagues are few and far between in my area.

Heck, the average league player doesn't even know the rules in 14.1 or AR much less actually play-em.

We don't have to like leagues but, if we want rooms to stay open, we have to have them.

I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

You do realize Butch Harmon played in the PGA and also won mulitple tournaments in his career, even winning in the PGA. The thing is, if you watch Butch, he can actually swing the club and knows how to play, he isn't going to shank the ball out of bounds.

Of course I didn't ask them! I didn't want to confirm the simple reality you just confirmed:

A. The coders at APA are so bad that the security of the APA has to be at least as bad and everyone should be worried a data breach and watch their credit cards.

B. They lied to you and the bug is intentional.

I'm hoping for B as they have my credit cards info (which I'm now fearful is stored in plain text on some AWS buxket wide open to the world).

I'm positive that the first automobile was a mystery at first, but after 20 years of popular usage there was way too many people that understood how they worked who could dispel myths about them.

Now take a HTML checkbox. Are they hard to mess up? Yes, so much so that if you release them messed up, you did it intentionally or you seriously, seriously don't know what you're doing and shouldn't be allowed near a system that takes electronic payments. Ever noticed that these bugs always seem to happen in a way that harms you for someone else's profit, but not the other way? Hmmm... seems like "bugs" are great at generating profit. After all, it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission. Oh innocent APA, bless your heart.

Lastly, I don't use the "app", I use a browser (but... so an exploit on 1 would work on the other?). Go find any web developer that thinks a check box on a HTM page such as that one is bugged. Even if you have no clue how a web site works you understand how a check box works (yes, it works exactly like you think even in the code). Technically, you have to add code specifically for altering the default state of such a box. By default the box is either on or off, Javascript has to be added to toggle the boolean state of that element, or to put simply, you have to work to make it happen.

That's the point, you don't know what "folks" have done behind the scenes to support pool, but just quote "well, he charged for lessons".... yeah, so what. why not speak about the things he does to promote pool and the free lessons he's given over the years. Why, it does not fit the narrative.

That's great. So, why are you wasting your time bashing someone else that helps billiards and promotes pool. This makes no sense to me and never will. Just because you don't know everything Scott has done for billiards and the game does not make them any less important than what you do, what I do, what everyone does. And just fro the record, I do a lot more than just sell the best fuggin chalk on the planet (thanks for the plug) but I'm not about to get into a pissing contest because anything done for pool is good for everyone.

I play leagues but not APA. I did play APA when I started playing in 2012 but I hate the format (slop) and the fact the LO's give nothing back to the players beside participation trophies...which have went in the trash.

If your profile is correct and you've been playing APA since 2002 and you are still a SL 6, maybe, just maybe, you should take the step and play in something a little more competitive. I'm sure you are drinking with your buddies and don't care about being competitive or wanting to improve.
