I can't fold, I need gold. I re-up and reload...
LOL. Look you can be wrong. That's ok.Wrong!!!
There are no verifiable vocal sources who can speak with any attending knowledge of the claim to fame.
It has been published that there exists an unedited videotape. It speaks for itself.
One can can only voice their opinion and one may speak for some others, but that is only their opinion, also.
None of them are affiliated with anyone that is an "official word" on the subject run, because none of them were in attendance at the supposed claim.
They all may have some type of pool affiliation, but most of them are like the rest of us, they were brought up into the game of pool as gamblers.
Most, if not all gamblers will toss your ass in the river. It's entirely up to you to sift through the pros and cons of who(m) is shooting the truth straight.
Make your own decision. I, without wavering, have made mine. So far, it's craps, no dice.
The BCA said it was legit. They would be considered the "official word". Other's have seen it and confirmed it as well. Actuall everyone who has seen it verified it legitimacy and none who have seen it have argued against it.
I'm sure it's been said somewhere in this 191 page shitshow but it's the same as the flat-earthers. They are wrong. It has been proven fact by science. Do you dispute that just because you can't see it for yourself?
Ultimately I don't give a shit either way. 14.1 is blah. This argument is fascinating though. Like a handful of people who are just regular Joe's in the pool world think that it's a conspiracy or something like that. I mean, this is Pool's version of Flat Earth, Anti-vax, Kennedy Assassination conspiracies, 9/11 Zeitgeist, and it's hysterical sitting back and watching a bunch of nobodies argue that it isn't real with a bunch of just barely not nobodies saying it is. And much like those absurd conspiracies, once the video is officially released and you are able to watch the whole thing, most who argue that it isnt legit, will not do so. Other's will watch it and make up some absurd minutia to support it's illegitimacy
In my opinion, John missed the boat on any type of decent cash grab for the video. Would I still buy a copy to own, sure, it's pool history and kinda neat. Would I pay to go to a viewing or a rental stream, fuck no... but this too makes me think the run is legit. Like he/they/whoever were really thinking of ways to market this and completely dropped the ball while simultaneously getting fucked by Covid for viewings. You keep comparing this to gamblers... these guys havent made shit off this and ultimately, won't.
H<------has proof that John Schmidt is Jack the Ripper...
