We have 1 guy who is capable of competing on the world stage. And 1 that almost is. What's restricting the development of top players?Lets address that word then. If they weren't there, pool would grow how? That's what a blight does, right, restrict growth?
-No money in pro pool while league taking lions share for decades.
Where are the advanced players coming from?
Not from league.
Old school, take your lumps and you work your way up. 30 plus hours a week playing all games. Learning from the better players.
-Playing on fisher price tables with league cut pockets under dumbed down rules, shooting one set on league night isn't gonna get anyone there.
Effect of league on pool rooms isn't all positive.
- I've seen all over upstate NY how league operaters do business. Cutting rooms out. Selling rooms out. Holding them hostage for peanuts.
League operators make much more than they payout. How many league players eventually quit once they realize there's no return on investment?
League just isn't pool as it should be. You can be the majority. You can say you are keeping pool alive, but it's a bastardization of what it is at it's best.
