    I am kinda new posting here and I am unsure about the relationship that San Jose Dick has with other posters is all the comments in jest? One thing I have noticed is Freddy the Beard seems to add a lot to this site whether it be his stories or input on what would you do scenerio's? I don't understand everything I read from Dick seems to be an attack on people and there is no redeeming posts that I see. Is it all an old boys club written in jest? I really want Dick to contribute something worthwhile to this site he is a legend no doubt but I find myself turned off from this site by the attacks on other members reminiscent of Fast Larry on the old RSB board except Larry couldn't play like Dick

      Freddy, Mr3C, onepockethacker don't like to admit that SJD was a great player, superior to them.
      SJD took offense at all the braggadocio that they posted.
      The result has regressed into a ridiculously juvenile banter from all sides.
      It's really sad on everyone's part including people who don't post often and lurkers, as it takes away from the aims of the site.

        I just wish it wouldn't have gotten to this point San Jose Dick was a great player according to my grandfather (I am no youngster by any means) but the site is filled with great players that contribute and dont attack guys Like Pittsburgh Billy, John Brumback etc that contribute reason I lurked here is there was times AZ billiards became so redundant and this forum seemed to have a large amount of onepocket history and knowledge. Instead its kinda developed into little clicks that seem to genuinly dislike each other maybe Im wrong though and I just don't get "it"

          Androd; Obviously you really don't know anything at all about me
          I NEVER boasted on this site about my play for money or tournament. But, since you brought it up, I'll give you the skinny.

          I played for and won more money at my little "niche" game, than SJD has ever seen in his life time, that's #1, #2, I lost ONE time in my life playing 3 cush, 1988 in LA, a mexican beat 50 - 49 for $500.00 a game and would NOT play another game. NO ONE was a better MONEY player than me at 3 Cushion, period! #3, In tournament play, I hold a WORLD record for winning 62 CONSECUTIVE games without a loss, and winning 9 tournaments in a ROW in 1983, I've won over 100 tournaments in my life, but, always pefered to gamble!

          NO ONE has ever come close! So, you wanted braggadocia, you got it in spades!

                I agree, for the longest it was entertaining but recently it has turned real ugly, hopefully we all can agree to put this all behind us and go forward. All of us.

                      Hell no--it would make the HOF a complete joke. He does, however, belong in the Keno Board HOF and Mega-Woofing HOF (would be a cinch for first ballot).

                            Sorry, I was occupied with work and family the last few days and have not kept up with this thread. I have cleaned it up a little.

                            Pool has always had quite a mix of characters -- at least in all the poolrooms I have been in and out of over the years -- and often some strong personalities that tend to clash. Consequently we get some of that here too.

                            At least here on the internet it is generally just talk!

                            Thank you all for understanding,

                              I have tremendous respect for "Jew Paul" Brusloff even though I only was able to see him play a handful of times (in his later years) and got to play him once myself. I knew of him since very early 70's (I'm originally from Detroit). Paul was by far a more straightaway, serious and high betting action man than what I've seen from Bucktooth. Paul had real steely gamble. He didn't have to have the triple nuts to play and bet high. Paul should be a cinch for any kind of action in pool award. He helped put Allen Hopkins in business!

                              I've only seen Bucktooth at a handful of assorted venues since about 1983 (Great American in Sacramento or Caeser's Tahoe Tournament). I was actually surprized when I read in Winning One Pocket or More Moves, Shots, Etc. that Bucktooth was once an accomplished player. I'd like to hear more about his battling with known players and shortstops.

                              Overall, while I believe Bucktooth is a decent human being, I have little to no respect for Bucktooth as a pool player/ gambler. What I have witnessed has been loud-mouthed bluster and extremely cowardly/ insulting attempts to match up. How can anyone earn an award for that?

                                This part below is sensible, the above is not.

                                To Steve Booth. As long as you are going to be the conscience of this forum, and that is understandable, understand that I will not let this inaccurate, unjust post go unanswered. You deleted my response, but I kept a copy of it. Anyone curious, it is available via PM.
