One of the best in 14.1
U stated - "Even at 2x speed for some portions, if there is something close to a foul, you will spot it." ??????I agree. But you know as well or better than most that almost all gambling is done cueball fouls only, and almost all tournaments on a local or regional level are played cue ball fouls only as well. I also recall even on national events that unless the match is officiated by a referee, they may be playing cue ball fouls only. There are generally accepted guidelines for resolution when a player moves a ball, that seem to work reasonably well when two people are gambling.
Also, by all accounts of those who viewed the "edited" footage, and by Bob who has viewed the "unedited" footage, no balls were touched, so this is a moot point.
If you throw away the all ball fouls (which I know is opinion to do so...), but for arguments sake if you do, about all this is left is seeing if there was some sort of double hit type foul.
The skill level of the BCA members that watched this is brought into question. If all they have to watch out for is a double hit, I'm pretty sure they can manage. Hell, my high run is a measly 37, and I think I could make a call if I had the footage on a double hit or similar type foul. And if there was a shot that I was not sure of, I would definitely be able to see that it was questionable, and then call onto a more experienced player/referee to watch the shot on the video.
I certainly understand the desire to make the call for oneself, and not trust the expertise of someone else. But that just doesn't look to be the case that it will happen here. Unless you go to one of the viewings. Even at 2x speed for some portions, if there is something close to a foul, you will spot it. At that point you can jump up and down and ask John to show a replay in slow motion of that shot in question. So far maybe 100 people went to his shows, a few on here, and no one said any shot was close to a foul.
This is not accurate - I heard my buddy's 2nd cousin who's third cousin knew Bob Jewett say he heard that j.s. ran 626 and it was caught on tape, although here, here, I dare say I am from the show me state - unedited footage equals verifiable evidence. U will spot nothing but phony hollywood corruption at the bca's/j.s theatrical production. Nor should their thea'trick'al theater commercial be associated with Mosconi's legitimate (well touted) 65+yr old record. If I ever decide to start recording some more 14.1 long runs - I will employ an overhead camera plus a side cam, that way I will never protrude any footage from the viewers line of sight. I have many runs where my hand touched a ball during the run, I stopped and started over, as that is not a clean run in my view. PLUS the footage will be unedited and open to the general public for sale - no corrupt ' come and see the show' stuff. If u think the people want to see footage sped up in double speed and or that is normal digital adjudication procedure that speaks volumes to me about yer character.
