Just a thought.
In reality, Daz was going to get out most of those games but one set where he raked 3-4 games-it was a 9-8 set and the raking probably made the difference in the set.


PS- Earl and Daz's side each posted $5k

unless you are really there you have no idea, it is a lot different than watching it on a stream.
being sensitive has nothing to do with it.

Being sensitive has everything to do with his being so uncomfortable that he has to leave. If you think Earl's behavior would cause me to feel like you described then you are incorrect sir. I would have fun with it.

i understand what you think you would have done, but you were not actually there.
those who have not been attendance when earl is melting down have no idea what the situation is like.
No one was having fun with it.
insults get shouted, tempers flare, believe me it immediately escalates to a level where just about everyone in the room is either pi$$ed off or uncomfortable.

No one was doing anything to cause the situation except earl.
I can gaurentee you that any spectator that would have purposely been causing distraction for either player would have been dealt with very quickly by chad, the owner of the venue & sponsor of the event.

leaving an event because you are not enjoying it for whatever reason is not an over reaction.



the sponsors of the event want it to go smoothly because they have a lot at stake.

You know it is out of hand uncomfortable when the owner (Chad) takes the Mic for the sole purpose of apologizing to the fans for Earl's behavior. If you were there, you probably were not aware of that. Ive seen a lot of streams and never an apology like that.

Earl has a mental illness. Nothing anybody can say will make him think he's not being persecuted. It's a way he handles pressure now, albeit a dysfunctional way of handling it. He tries to get motivated by putting himself against the world. Under that pressure he typically cracks. He gives himself an excuse to lose. It's shameful behavior, but he cannot control it. If pool had a players union or major sponsor, his behavior could be regulated. Instead, sadly, we get a front row seat to watch a champion self destructing. I wish he had someone who could turn this around for him because he's incapable of doing it on his own.

His situation is not new-decades old. There have been quite a few who have tried to help him- some smart successful people among them. Hasn't worked obviously. Not sure anything would work as for the most part, as you imply, it really only surfaces significantly during matches. Many conditions like his worsen with age (e.g. Howard Hughes) which doesn't help. Additionally, I'm GUESSING anything that would work during pressure play would take his game down a notch.

Once again -just a know-nothing railbird's opinion.

My understanding is in the rematch, they will play with no side pockets, straight jackets and ass weights. Earl is favored 3 -1 in the Action Room.

Isn't it possible all of Earl's antics are completely calculated, and intentional in an effort to make his opponent uneasy and disrupt their momentum?

not one chance in a million. I have to assume you have never seen him more than a time or 2 or just lack perception.

Not to mention, he lost a $100k/yr sponsor due to his antics-wouldn't be a real good trade-off.
