Grady is brilliant. I believe he is not only looking out for the TD but the TV. Common sense tells you One Pocket can never sell on TV in its current length. I don't know if it will ever sell on TV. But, you have to give Grady his dues, he is thinking positively. This is the greatest game ever invented on a pool table and I hope, some day, the general public will enjoy it as much as we do. Hang in there Grady. Keep up the good work.SactownTom said:From a players perspective, I don't like the idea of trying to speed up the game. It changes the strategy. This last week, I saw a match (race to 3 games) last 3.5 hours with the first game lasting 1.5 hours. In the same tournament, I saw 3 matches last less that 20 minutes, one match was 8-0, 8-0, 8-0 in less than 12 minutes. The majority of the matches were less than 2 hours and we were allocating 2.5 hours per match.
From a tournament director's point of view... I love the idea.
Two slow players can screw up a bracket for the entire tournament.
Absolutely, Yo. I totally agree with Tom, as far as a players view point. The longer the game lasts, the better my chances of winning are. Especially the older I get. But, I don't play tournaments, never did for that matter, needed too much weight. I am looking at the possibility of putting more money in the game by shortening matches. Just as I believe Grady is doing. Efren, Cliff and alike could care less if the match takes less time, if there is more money in it, I'm sure.yobagua said:Tell me though Hemi you must like those long games where you can just torture those nine ball kings. Frozen to a ball and shooting from the rail!!!! That and 2 hours for one game always puts them out of stroke. LOL!!!!!!
