Who said anything about Netflix, they don't live stream, let alone show sports.It doesn't matter the country. Pool is boring to watch whether its a Taiwan viewer, American viewer, Canadian viewer, etc. Thats the crux of the problem. If pool were exciting to watch, then people (from any country) would watch it, and then sponsors would add money so those watching it may eventually become a customer of the sponsor. That would have a snowball effect, as the sponsor money would lead to better production values and more advertising, which would in turn lead to more viewers, and more payouts for "real" professional players.
The root problem though is its boring to watch.
Sorry Glen, but your idea of a special rack, a "ghost" rating to only ensure the elite play, standardized Diamond tables, a big venue in the middle of the county, etc, etc, don't change the fact that the game is boring to watch.
Having it live streamed FOR FREE on Netflix, 24/7, and Dominos throwing 20 million dollars at it still doesn't change the fact that its boring to watch.
You could have all your wishes come true, Dominos plus Netflix plus your game rules idea, and after one year, they would both pull out, because the game is boring and no one would watch.
