I think people on here spend far too much time complaining about the (usually innocuous) conduct of players.

Must not have been that bad,nobody has compared John to Earl yet.
How about a little something for the slow play?

Ok, the integrity of this poll has been jeopardized since people that did not watch the match have voted.

This poll is null and void...

I voted no, but he wasn't what I would call a perfect gentleman either. I think he was intentionally trying to create a little interest/drama.

I also don't get the slow play comment. I didn't see anyone taking extraordinarily long to shoot any shots. One pocket requires a lot more thought than rotation pool and both guys moved very well, especially in the 2nd half of the match...and yes, I watched it...every shot.

Anybody know the answer to this: Early in the 1 pocket match, John was spotting a ball, and it looked like he moved a ball slightly, maybe to make room to put the spotted ball on the spot. Instantly, Ken in the booth said "no", but didn't pursue it. Deuel was standing right there watching, and it appeared to me he was about to say something. Anyway, after the ball was spotted, now John has a shot that maybe wouldn't have been there had the spotting of the ball had gone differently.

Yeah, he crossed the line when he was whining and *****ing while Corey was at the table shooting and Corey said "Dude, I am not doing this stuff to you, can you be quiet while I shoot?" and John told him to "shut up".

When your opponent is at the table you should NOT be *****ing at him and commenting on every one of his shots and how lucky he is while he is in the middle of his run and when he calls you on it YOU should not then be replying with "shut up". John was over the line at that moment for sure.

I do remember that. But Kenny backed off I think bc Corey was right there and they did discuss it and mutually agree.

I honestly don't like Kenny's bias either. IT always seams he has a favorite. Just my opinion.

I've seen and heard so much worse between two players gambling. It's not perfect sportsmanship but nothing was completely out of line. When a guy's crying about rolls and such, it's not anything the other player needs to take personally, it's just him venting. I think anyone who's played a long time understands that.
