View Full Version : Scathing attack on the UPA

No, it's not me with another long-winded diatribe. This time it's nothing less than the most respected and widely read magazine in the business, Billiards Digest itself.

The July issue has an article by the publisher, Mike Panozzo, that calls Don Mackey the "Prince of Peace" compared to the UPA. He outliines the UPA's latest attempt to ruin a pro tournament by causing the WPA to withdraw its sanctioning of The Big Apple 9-Ball Challenge and threatening its own boycott of that event.

Charlie the Dragon and his mob of "mucky-mucks" are showing their true colors and Mike has said it better than I could and in fewer words. I guess that's why he gets paid the big bucks.

Yep. And it was that same Mike Panozzo who wrote so many years ago that the WPBA was slitting it's own throat by walking away from the PBTA. Turns out we were right and he couldn't have been more wrong.

Mike's job is to stir up controversy. That's what the media does.
