Earl was playing this kid Jesus Atencio great young player. And once Earl started losing he got very disrespectful kept talking louder and louder when the kid was shooting it got so bad the kids sponsor had to tell Earl to shut up and that just made it worse and Earl starting yelling a bunch of nonsense lol Jesus kept his cool the whole time and played great in the end Earl raked the balls off the table and was very unsportsmanlike like to a very respectful young player that was prolly thrilled to beat Earl.I heard something happened there but didn't hear the details
I thoroughly enjoy watching Earl play, (he has enormous talent), and enjoy just as much watching him make an ass of himself. I also enjoy knowing that the best has yet to come. He's only gonna be more entertaining. As he ages, his temper will be shorter and tantrums more explosive as these up & coming youngsters wear his ass out, especially if they let out a little giggle or look him in the eye with a smirk on their face. Can you imagine if he hears a few snickers from the audience? Yep, it's gonna get better, I hope nobody bans him! lol
... another beef I got is players conceding games...it must be confusing for uninformed spectators.....and those are the one that can make professional pool grow.

I saw what Earl did last week at The Dismal Swamp classic and his behavior was way out of line imo
Maybe he should get banned for acting that way.
I feel like he was a little rude when he got destroyed by Landon Shuffett.I've watched Earl for decades... one of the best tournament
9 ball players ever.. that two-stroke quick runout... perfect
position play, etc.
However... his outbursts and behavior make him a liability for
pro pool. Dissing a young upcoming player who is trying his
best can't be tolerated any longer.. Earl The Churl, indeed.
There's a new sheriff coming to town..........Barry Hearn . He made his millions by making snooker a clean and respected sport , and deals harshly with those that break the rules .
