Sweating it at Derby City
Billy's throwing the kitchen sink at Shaw, but Shaw's kick in of the six after a superb safety by Thorpe in Rack 5 gives Jayson a 3-2 lead. He's very tough to beat right now!
It's simple, as Shane hasn't won over a deep internationally diverse field in a few years now. Filler, on the other hand, has won the WPA World 9-ball championship, the US Open 9-ball, the China Open, and has also been Mosconi MVP in that same period.I posted that he might be, not that he definitely was. I’m not sure how it’s obvious without any tournaments being played.
Yeah, it looks to me like Team USA has a serious discipline problem. Until that is addressed, I wouldn't expect much more than what we've already seen - unfortunately.Outclassed today.... and out-rolled too. Majority of rolls went against USA.
Hard to beat a Euro team that strong without getting a few rolls here and there.
I have been on a few teams. While what you sayI posted this in the other mosconi thread but I think it’s so disrespectful for some of the guys to be screwing around on their phone while their teammates are still shooting. Saw some of the Euro guys doing it yesterday and they just showed Shane not fist bumping billy after his win cause he was on his phone. I know you’re mad you lost the previous doubles match and things look grim, but you still gotta support your teammate. Team USA likes to talk about how they’re more of a team than Europe, but that’s not what teams do.
In that case Filler has a long way to go to catch up to SVB’s greatness!It's simple, as Shane hasn't won over a deep internationally diverse field in a few years now.

Greatness is measure in titles, not in Fargo.
With this I agree 100%. Filler's career cannot logically be compared to that of the legendary SVB. It's too early. SVB has the better resume, but Filler's list of achievements at 23 is probably better than that of anyone that's ever played the game was at that age.In that case Filler has a long way to go to catch up to SVB’s greatness!
Seriously though, Filler is young and has a chance to win any tournament that he enters and who knows maybe catch up to SVB someday. But don’t take anything away SVB, he can still play at the same level. It could just come down to something simple as a good draw.
