I would have hooked Danny one more time and then said to him "you're on three"
Just ONE more reason to put 1 foul in the trash and bring back REAL 9 ball.....2 foul pushout!!!Danny is correct just as the ref. explained.
Maniac actually it's not just your opinion, it's what the rules state, so it was also the ref's opinion.
I love people who try to say that Danny was wrong, if you don't like the rule campaign to have the rule
changed, but don't try to jump on Danny when you don't have a leg to stand on in this situation.
Sorry but you don't get to say Danny should play by the rules, the way you see them, not how it works.
Opinions are just that, opinions. That's why they have rules.
It's also each players own responsibility to know the rules, not Danny's to teach him.
Dumb rule. I can run up and hit the cue ball in 3 seconds before he can say ' ur on 2'!!! T
6.14 Three Consecutive Fouls
If a player fouls three times without making an intervening legal shot, it is a serious foul. In games scored by the rack, such as nine ball, the fouls must be in a single rack. Some games such as eight ball do not include this rule.
The referee must warn a shooter who is on two fouls when he comes to the table that he is on two fouls. Otherwise a possible third foul will be considered to be only the second.
I'm confused by this rule.
The rule describes this as a "serious" foul.
Are there non-serious fouls?
Are there varying degrees applied to a foul?
Just wondering why this adjective is applied to the rule.
Yes some fouls you just lose your turn, such bad hit, scratch in pocket...
Third foul you lose the game. That is serious!
Earl moving a ball was illegal even though the ref didn't see it.
Of coarse everyone getting on Earl for it, are assuming he saw it.
Nothing Danny did was illegal, in fact Danny told his opponent
you need to tell me I'm on two after you shoot and before I shoot.
How is that the same?
Because it was the ref's job to call the fouls, not Earl's. It was legal for Earl to keep shooting, so he did. What's the difference? They both took advantage of the situation presented to them.
