I too am disgusted Mr. Barton that they choose to hide the evidence (in disc form) and available for sale to the public, I was reading an article from the Atlantic not long ago - about how capitalism drives the 'cancel culture'. I do not know much about the 'woke' culture nor do I care to. I do believe that yer possibly apart of the cancel culture, it is a travesty what they (cancel culture) have tried to do to Mosconi's record. I doubt you yerself' have seen unedited footage of this claim of 626, yet u find fault in we the people who simply would like to see this elusive 626? Truly a shame, I would say that if u would like to see the thread go away - it is easy - produce unedited footage of this 626. I think after waiting two years for proof - the chances of you producing that footage is about as good as a proverbial snowball flying through the lower regions of hell. If yer really looking for a One Pocket game - i will play u some - ten ahead is ok wit me - just in case u feel froggy.
The chances of that dream happening are about the same as u or the two yahoos over at bca/csi producing an unedited version of this 626 - in disc form. I hope this thread makes the cancel culture think twice - the next time they try and steal a 67 year old sports history record. Also any beef u have with me - please address me instead of yacking with Lou, I will answer any questions u may have - case' yer wondering.
Hypothetically I could lay claim to have run 1000 in 14.1, now if I made that claim and said I caught the run - in it's entirety - I would expect the people to want to see proof. Their little theater show - ain't proof, also i think u are wrong in claiming that Lou is a racist - I don't think so. All were asking to see is unedited video of this 626, I don't deny the fact that John is a great player. I never called anyone a fraud or a liar, but after waiting two years for proof it is clear that they have a problem producing solid evidence. Mosconi's 526 stands tall above the cancel culture human vultures and sports history scavengers.
Sorry but even Bobby doesn't think Mosconi's 526 is the high run record.
Cancel culture? Lol, for what, attempting to and succeeding at breaking a record?
There is a really easy way to settle this. John said he wanted to monetize his achievement. So if you're convinced enough that he didn't do it all you need to do is offer to freeze up enough for him to take your bet against being able to provide the full video.
I am positive that an arrangement can be made where you and a lawyer and him and his lawyer sit in a room and watch it.
Has absolutely nothing to do with cancelling Mosconi or anyone else. The fact is that John's run was verified by the Billiard Congress of America. They really get nothing out of it whether or not is verified but they absolutely get major criticism and are possibly subject to legal issues if they certify the result by claiming, as they did, to have watched the run in the entirety.
Predator stands to lose if it's not real. The owner of predator isn't afraid to litigate and so maybe that's why no one is had the balls to directly implicate them with accusations of fraud as you are doing with John and the BCA.
I think it's silly and jealous to go this far denigrating John's accomplishment. People I know and trust have verified this to me which is why I am willing to bet high on it being true.
All this is good for is getting views on a forum. Negativity and conflict get more attention than respect and congratulations.
And yes, you are calling John, his backers, his sponsor, and the BCA frauds. You can dance around it but that's exactly what you are doing here. I agree that it would be great if all of us could see the full video but the fact is that there is no upside to that for John's income. You certainly don't have enough reason to say that they cannot show the unedited footage just because they won't show it to you.
Try offering John a grand for a private viewing? If he refuses try $2000. You might come to a point where your respective desires align. But I doubt you will get what you want by these public accusations.
And for the record I have been critical of both the BCA and John in the past. I am not any sort of shill for either of them. I simply think that the weight of evidence is way on their side here.
I look at what is there to gain or lose and if John were to fake it then he would be done in the pool world once that was found out. The short term gain would not worth the long-term, as in always on the net, pain.
