Just observations! I felt JJ's commentary of this hit or miss episode was very good. Obviously Mike being seated several feet away, and the cb crossing the 12 ball impairs his vision, and this combined with Efren's hand gesture created Mike's judgement call on this shot!
I've had this very same call made by an opponent, where he accused me of making a foul in which I did not. It ruined our match for he honestly thought I fouled, and I honestly did not, and told him so. I called over a ref. and he would not comply with the ref. and the ref. got mad at him, and I finally got so mad, I said here; "take ball in hand, I do not need to cheat to win". Then the ref. got mad at me for giving him ball in hand, and then chewed out that guy again. That is probably why I posted this, among other reasons!
Efren, handled this like the true champion he is! Whitey
