The BCA has nothing to do with leagues, nor does the WPA nor the WCBS. If you are really interested in seeing cue sports in the Olympic Games you will need to know what those organizations are. That you don't know what they are already is quite remarkable.

It may surprise you to find out that the IOC has already accepted billiard sports into the IOC family. (That is, formally recognized the world governing body of cue sports as properly organized and a potential participant in the Games.)

And if you hope to sell products with an Olympic logo on them, you should seek legal advice first.

Have you seen the petition? It's been a year and they aren't even up to 25,000.
https://www.change.org/p/bringing-billiards-to-the-olympic-games

Can you imagine what that would be like with 78 Million views and a link?

If someone makes a MEME or finds a graphic I'll see what I can get started for gathering sigs. I hit at least 500 balls mostly one-handed today.. so tired.

No Items for sale, thanks.

There is a personal reason I don't do the League research or join the leagues. Not that they did anything. Besides, you folks have that covered.

“If someone makes a MEME or finds a graphic....”

Balls.....a meme or YouTube video goes viral because it interests someone.
You can not create interest just by placing a meme about pool being in the Olympics.

The meme or video has to be interesting or fun or controversial or something to get people to watch it and spread it.

You could have the number one “web influencer” promote Billiards and it still would not click unless it does something to people’s base needs or emotions.

Now...a cat playing pool video would most likely get some views, but that may not translate to people wanting to rush out, look for their nearest pool hall, buy a cue and start playing weekly!

That's a cute cat pic, ummmm

it's Ball. lol thanks, you're making my Great-great-grandmother happy.

"You People" already did! You folks put hard to miss pool tables in homes everywhere.

I ran my own impromptu focus group for about a year. the results are easy and off the top of my head.

out of every 100 people surveyed

Males
There was one pool player. He's the guy that always wins the money from group 2, his male friends, acquaintances, etc.

Group 2 participates, and like most guys says he knows how to play pool when in fact we all know it's nice to see him hold the "stick" right while we beat him at the table and talk like a couple of hens on the sidewalk.

Group 3. Same as females

Females
My grandfather or father or one of my friends had a pool table and we used to play on it but nobody ever showed us how to make a proper bridge or stroke. They would be interested in playing if the opportunity presented itself. Like if their friends wanted to go or a date.

the remaining people that didn't have pool thoughts in their life was tiny. It was actually odd if they didn't have a pool story.

In conclusion. The seeds have been planted and are waiting for water. Millions of people have a story and would support this community and the petition. The better question is how many will actually take the time to sign it.

The meme or video has to be interesting or fun or controversial or something to get people to watch it and spread it.

doh!
Trick shots are fun, interesting and, sometimes maybe when you have a shoe between your legs, a little scary.

For example, I'm willing to bet there are some funny outtakes from Venom, some of which models and his wife are getting popped in the head with a cue ball, etc, which could have a caption added like. "You don't have to take a ball to the head to make your husband happy, just sign the petition".

I'm going to contact him again anyways and I will also direct him here. Looks like a happy guy so I'm guessing he would help out.

Not to infer that this single post concept will change.org the world. Actually, you all can post things.

You could have the number one “web influencer” promote Billiards and it still would not click unless it does something to people’s base needs or emotions.

Now...a cat playing pool video would most likely get some views, but that may not translate to people wanting to rush out, look for their nearest pool hall, buy a cue and start playing weekly!

It's about want. They want to have fun. They want to help a charity, they want to help get to the Olympics

and weekly is a league concept which is your problem when they get to your pool hall.

I want a few million people to play pool once a year.

The League pitch is on you folks.

Funny Stuff

So I decided to ask a social networking giant I know (customer) to post the cat pic in his caption this thread which is pretty funny most of the time.

And what did he post an hour ago?

So read it and fix the 35 places you use the incorrect word. Your site makes my brain hurt.

Balls, had the balls to say....

“I want a few million people to play pool once a year.”

Bowling tried that and look where it got them!

AMF and Brunswick both sold out to foreign companies.
When Leagues dried up more than 50% of Bowling Houses closed.
Open Play and Cosmic Bowling can not pay the bills.
Leagues paid the bills!

Balls....get some famous people to endorse pool for the Olympics.
What does your focus groups say about that?

I’m sure JC would welcome the exposure.

Barney has been MIA for awhile.

Deadpool?....well his name has “pool” in it already!

We absolutely do NOT need "bar box" rules, which are nothing more than one more ridiculous rules set that no one who is any good at playing pool will want to use.

We need ONE RULE SET PER GAME. Period.

Oh and your website is very demeaning to women.

You got five videos by Jeanette Lee and the APA?

Are they on board with this?
Guess they must be, why else would you claim the copyright.

Hey, go read. it has nothing to do with you or your Leagues. If you get a clue about what is going on feel free to chime in again.

Not a focus group question. Besides, that's over.

They will pop in I'm sure if their fans care.

Barney is on "Orange is the new black" and looking better this year.

Outdated shopping links to e-bay......
Redirecting to true billiard websites.....
Does not make a good website worthy of being respected.
Especially from the Olympic Committee.

Over 20 Bowling Houses in your town?
Doing Well?
What city is this in?

I’m sure 20 years ago there was over 40 open bowling houses.

Most are probably owned by Quibica a foreign owned company.
Non are owned by AMF or Brunswick.
