corvette1340 said:of course not. Why wouldn't I go ahead and be the first to pay my $2500 membership dues? It all sounds legit to me. One question though, when I hit the submit button it said: Receipts for membership payments coming soon. What does that mean?

JAM said:The NACPBA would be an organization with a tour, so to speak. I wonder how they will deal with the WPA, WPBA, UPA, et cetera, et cetera.
lodini said:It looks as though they don't plan on dealing at all... one of the rules is "Members may not participate in billiards activities outside the NACPBA without prior approval from the NACPBA." This may or may not mean that its members won't be able to play anywhere else. But with 31 events per year, who would have time!?
(Not that this is a bad thing at all... maybe this is the one unified tour everyone has been waiting for??)
jgpool said:This is in essence buying the rights of performance of the pool players. Don't all major sports do this? Does this not make sense that if you are investing in a sport to control the players professional activity. You must protect your investment. IMO (Big Payouts) (If true?)
lodini said:Absolutely. That's why I said it wasn't a bad thing for the players. It signifies the beginning of one unified organization.
jgpool said:Your right, billiards has always needed ONE Controlling Authority. All sports at the professional level need ONE Controlling Authority to prosper as long as that ONE in power will do what is good for the sport and not what is good for themselves first. It has to be a WIN WIN situation but the sport must be on the high end of the deal for it to prosper and grow!! This is very interesting and I think we all hope this is legit!! We'll see!
