Why?..you ask.. because there is a lot of positive news about billiards out there.. and it out-weighs the bad news..

Just more info.. that shows that the Billiad parlors have been doing some good news promoting..

Thanks for the link, Tom. There's some really interesting stuff out there. I was thinking I'd like to try to catch that tournament in Kuwait, but I'm not sure how to negotiate the shots with that veil over my face. I'm sure all those women pool players over there have it figured out. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Talk about pressure. If you miss they cut off your right hand.

I agree that there is more good news about billiards out there than bad news. But the bad news seems to get more media attention than all the good stuff. All the recent killings around pool halls are good examples, the media has been awfully quick to jump onto these stories. As a result the average person who isn't gonna search high and low for news about pool is probably only going to see this bad stuff. If this bad stuff stopped all this attention might be focused onto the better things that are happening with the sport.
