How far is too far? Everyone does it. Afterall it is part of the fun of the ring game so see what oneliners'll come up next. "HOOK HIM 5BALL!!""GET IN THE GAME 10!" "Sloppy bastard!" "OPTION!!" Its all the sort of stuff that goes on when the balls are in motion..but not when someone is down on a shot..and definitely not a money ball. Got sharked out of a few money balls last night but let them slide. Just wondering what your thoughts on this and list some of your favorite one-liners that you ahve faced.

I've always liked the idea of a "Woofing" (sharking)tournament. He the 'woofs' the best..

I don't like chatter right before I shoot, or while I or anyone else is shooting in a ring game. I don't think just because it's a ring game the etiquette should be any different than usual.

Todd...Here's one of my favorites: "Oh, I'm sorry! Did I leave you tough? It was an accident!" LOL

I'm playing K-Mom the other night. She breaks and comes up dry. I run out the rack and she gets mad at me. I tell her, "Hey, I can't help it if you shot bad." /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
You evil man!!!!!!! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
When I play a guy in league and someone breaks and runs I just sit there, turn to the guys on the team and tell them I played my hardest and just couldn't get there.

I don't mind the BS during the change of players, the banter & BS adds some flavor. But to continue with the horseshit or start getting your money, in the line of the shot, is just plain RUDE. The idea is to have fun & not lose too much money. When my opponents become unruly & resort to SHARKING to win, I'm out. I don't care for jerks..

Chris, you gotta watch a ring game that Anthony plays in, it's hilarious! The last time we played, at the end we were playing $3-6-9 rotation, and even though it's expensive, none of us could get serious because we were having too much fun and laughing so much. I agree that when you play in a ring game with people who are not real good buddies of yours, you shouldn't be allowed to shark, since it is a money game. With friends, I can't think of anything more fun.

Anthony is hilarious. He reminds me of the Spiderman character "Kingpin", only funny.
I have your tape in the trunk by the way. See you Wednesday.
