It gives one player way too large an advantage, all other things being equal. Keeping tradk of number of balls pocketed would be a huge task, but i still feel that is the best way i can think of to "solve" who should get the right to break hill-hill.
chapo, chapo, chapo
how can you say the lag is the most underpracticed and IMPORTANT shot
yet
hope that one day it becomes unimportant?????
also since i dont agree with your premise
"we all cant probably sort of agree it should be unimportant."
its a skill shot
and whoever shoots it better is rewarded with the break.
shouldnt we reward a player for his skill?
just askin...
btw i enjoy reading your contrarion way to look at things since it makes me think....
