JJ STILL ALIVE BABY
For the level he plays at the cup I'd rather see players like Justin Martin, Josh Roberts etc. get a chance. Justin Hall played well under the MC pressure when we sent him. We can't assemble a team of champions like Europe can. I'd rather give the next generation a chance at the experience. Shane performs about like Dechaine under the MC lights. We don't pick him anymore regardless of his Fargo. Turn the page.The problem with the US team is it needs Shane. Even when he's not playing great he's still better than the alternatives.
I think theres far too much investment by matchroom to risk involvement in such silliness.When you consider there is gambling on the event in Europe that is a distinct possibility. I also notice some sharking in the audience every year. Makes you wonder if the organizers have their thumb on the scale.
