Yes I agree with you, Mr Incardona. We cant forget Rodney Morris who has had a great comeback in a relatively short span of time as well as I believe Dennis Hatch. People make mistakes but in the case of Tony Chohan I think he has an exceptional talent for one pocket. I hear he did have a 4X8 in the joint to play on. I hope he used that time to keep in shape. Mentally as well as physically.What spurs my interest is watching younger players with talent compete against the best and do well. It doesn't just have to be young players, I also love watching older players that supposedly are on their way out, playing against the best players and "kicking but." It's this kind of action that makes people feel good, we all love watching a legend in the making, or a legend sustaining at an older age. Tony Chohan falls under a little different category, with Tony we're looking at a player that had great potential that abruptly came to an end for doing something stupid in life. Tony's a very likeable man with a lot of talent and many people..including myself would like to see him regain his playing ability and get back in the mix playing upper echelon pool. Of course Tony playing in "high profile" tournaments, or matches, is going to be of interest to many people because it's a great story line, plus he's a good guy. Lets face it, we just like to root for the underdog.
Story lines are the adrenalin that is largely responsible for the popularity in all sports, without great story lines sports would be much less appealing. We wouldn't have Andrew Luck thrilling football fans, or an older George Forman winning the championship at the age of 45. What about all the "Cinderella" teams making their run during the March Maddness NCAA college basketball tournament. What about Cinderella?? :heh
Of course great players are fun to watch as well, they entertain, they impress, they put us in awe. "Make It Happen" June 25th thru the 28th.
