I don't know what they would do with the money. What I do know, is that there have not been any fees or dues collected by the NACPBA, nor has the player list been released as of this date.
They are still in the organizing stage. If this tour turns out to be another IPT, I will be man enough to own the fact that I was wrong (I've said that before on this forum... anyone remember when?) For those keeping score, I do have a perfect record (so far) at calling these ones as I see 'em.
They announced they were gods and pool players were dirt and would behave themselves or hit the road. At the same time the backers and funding for this association are veiled in secrecy. Then they told Diamond that they wanted some tables but missed multiple deadlines they set themselves to produce a down payment on those tables.
That is plenty enough to make an initial judgment on. A little openness and them being a little forthcoming might persuade me that the initial judgment was a bit harsh but they are the ones that stubbed their toes multiple times coming out of the gates. The ball is in their court and I feel absolutely no need to assume they are knights in shining armor when everything to date indicates more of the same ol' same ol' that one would be tour after another has put men's pool through.
The little ol' lady in an old Wendy's commercial said it best for me:
I went to log in to the NACPBA site as I hadn't been there in quite awhile. As soon as the page loaded my anti-virus-phishing-trojan- software went nuts. It blocked the attempts to exploit my system but I won't be going back there.
