As is always the case John, you tend to base (or blame) all my opinions on my age!..That may have been the case during my prime years, but not since I've retired..All I do now, is watch streams, and observe both men and women. (that little Chezka gal does play pretty sporty)..It is true, in my day there were very few women, if any, who could come close to competing with the men..There were also very few tournaments, no internet and for sure, no 'fargo ratings', which you seem to live and die by!
I am simply not as easily impressed as you are, by a few (very few) ladies who are admittedly now playing much better than they were 40 years ago!..However, I base all my opinions on my accumulated years of experience, and I still come away believing no female will ever dominate our game!..I do respect them though, but you're right about one of my old-fashioned beliefs..As much as I love 'em, I do believe a woman's place, is in the kitchen cooking up some vittles for me and the kids..not in some lousy pool hall! (JK ladies)
PS..At least I don't call them "Mop Squeezers", like Titanic used to. .. Always fun jawing with you, but its cocktail time again before I get in big trouble with 'em all! :grin:
Well my opinions are certainly based in part on my age and the things I have seen during my conscious life combined with the available data and research.
The concept of "will never" has been disproven millions of times over. When people say something will never happen somehow it happens.
