Does anybody know if Cuetech makes a cue that comes with a hook that you can hang on the wall as you sulk for 6 racks, while a superior player beats you like a rented mule after you miss a hanger at the US Open? Or if Nike has released to market those motorcycle gloves with the special tear soaking fibers that Earl wore last night? Or if Budweiser has a special beer that has enough caffeine to keep you awake as your opponent serves you up a "quitter-sized" helping of whoopass? How dare you quit in front of Mizerak, when he would've given anything to play in that tourney? Seriously Earl, were you frustrated by the slow play, or the fact that there's 50 or so players in the world that will crush you like a grape? This guy needs to have his sponsors yanked from him.

Good call, Poolnerd. As you mention, his sponsors should seriously consider pulling the plug on this guy (psycho). It's amazing Cuetech and Budweiser put up with this moron. Anybody out there from Xanax, Propecia, or Viagra that want to pick this guy up?

From what i was told,and remember that this just might be a rumor so take it for what it is worth. I was told that the woman that runs cuetec cues took Earl a side at the tribute to Steve Mizerak and gave him the ass chewing he deserved. I do know that from that ass chewing until he got knocked out of the tournament (He finished 4th) he was a different person. What she said to him i have no idea but he was a changed person after it. i do have to say this though in Earl's defense. They wanted earl to play Efren Reyes on Saturday on the TV table and Earl refused because Efren had just won 2 matches on that table and would have been 3 matches in a row for efren on that table. To make Earl play on that table would not have been fair to earl. Just my thoughts..............................mike

Good to hear that the Cuetec woman read to earl from the good book.

He's been a ninny ever since I've been watching pool.

Maybe he needs to be led out back to a dark alley and taught some manners and manly things?

Around here, that sure seems to cure the "I'm so spoiled" attitude right quick!

OK what did I miss? What did Earl do this time, I take it you people were either at the match or saw it on a channel I don't have. I only get to catch pool on the espn's and one of the FoxSN affiliates.

Earl was just being earl. Arguing with the spectators if they made the slightest little noise of making comments about the playing conditions. And yes i was there. And i had a great time as well....................mike

Thanks, maybe someday I'll be there. But for now I will just have to take your word(s) for it.

Earl Stickland is an unreal player. So isn't Bustamente. If I am not mistaken I beleive Earl has won more world Champions then Bustament, but I might be Wrong. If someone was cheering extremely loud in the stands that would piss just about anybody off. And we all love to watch him play just to see what he is going to do next. I think that he is a great person to this sport. And I would like to know who those 50 players are?

well during earls match with Rolph Souquet someone was making little noises when Earl was shooting and when Earl was playing another match and he missed people were clapping. Sometime fans can be really aggrivating to alot of players................................mike

What you say about the crowd is true. However Earl wasn't just talking to the crowd etc like you said in your earlier post. He was sulking with his head in his hands, covering his face, even plugging his ears at one point. He refused to look at the table and once he had ball in hand but wasn't paying enough attention to know it so he took the shot where Ralph had put the cue ball back on the table.

He was acting like a 10 year old that just had his toy taken away. I was embarassed just watching him. It was completely disrespectful to Ralph, the fans and the Miz.

He even insulted Ralphs play after the match was done in the Billiard Club Interview. He said something about Ralph having no talent so I'm told.

I saw Earl in person at the Derby City Classic and he pulled the same stunt after Mika stomped him. He almost started a fight with someone in the crowd after the guy yelled, "You're a professional, act like it".

Earl is an amazing player when he is on and not crying about something. Its unfortunate he is a manic depressive bipolar or whatever is wrong with him. If he didn't turn into a cry baby during matches and quit when things don't go his way one rack he'd probably still be winning championships like no one else.
