Is this called 'when I put a site togetheralitis' ....?
Tell me your on about players themselves, not using the Cue ball as a reference, because we've already had one of these players..."How about allowing snooker players to play jump shots?" & it was Alex Higgins when he hit the ball, amazing, & he still f**kin potted them. Tho I'm sure all the movement came before & after he hit the ball.
Now, if your trying to tell me that society won't let them type of people into our great sort anymore, then we might be onto something.
Obviously I'm on about jumping the white ball over object balls. It's just an idea for discussion - how would the game change? It's not like it's actually going to happen, but I've never seen anyone talk about the pros and cons of the jump shot before, just that in snooker it's not allowed and that's it. What's wrong with playing the jump shot? Watch pool and tell me there's no skill involved.
Your taking me just a little bit too seriously 1ball.
Yes, I do know what you are on about, & to be honest, having given this some thought, it is quite an interesting concept because yes, I agree, when I have watched some of the pool players play the jump shot, some players can even play position & maintain control of the cue ball after playing the jump shot. That in itself is a pretty hard thing to do & the skill level to be able to master such a short is quite high.
By the way, now you've switched the lights on in this site, from a cosmetic perspective, I like the look of it.
