Willie Mosconi's status had much less to do with his running 526 as his legend is really based on his incredible COMPETITIVE success for many many years over the very best 14.1 players over that entire span- he was completely dominant. So NO ONE needs to defend Willie OR downplay John's achievement. What gives with you?
Well if this thread was about tournament championships, Mosconi hands down, and John is hardly a blip in history lol. But it isn't. Just scrolling through your last handful of posts, like I said, you seem to be pretty grudging in your acknowledgement of John's accomplishment. I love you "woulda should coulda" guys who have your long lists of players that you think woulda should coulda run more than John (including Mosconi of course)

With John the great thing is, he friggin DID IT -- it was not a "woulda should coulda" -- it was a didda -- that's a real actual accomplishment, not a conjectural fantasy

Have they released or said if they will be producing a DVD for purchase? Possibly with John commentating over it as it goes?
