Apparently I'm reading Eddie differently. I'm sorry you two are having this bizarre squabble, but I for one am very glad that Eddie Robin is posting his opinions.
Maybe I'm just comparing his defensive posting to Fast Larry. But, so far, I don't have any problems with Eddie's posting.
I agree. Eddie posting and freely offering his knowledge is a great opportunity for players trying to improve their game.
I've known Eddie for a while now and have personal experience in pool instruction with him. Eddie can come off a little harsh sometimes, even egotistical. But, if a person is willing to let go of preconceived ideas and things they've been taught in the past (which may be inaccurate), much can be learned from him.
He's a perfectionist, and from what I can tell, has studied the games of pool and billiards at a much greater level of detail than most.
Oh yeah...apparently he could also play a little!
