    It seems Alex and his antics (entertaining the fans as he calls it) is being put in the spotlight as an excuse to put a shark label on him. The question is, has he been doing it all his career? If so, to make an issue of it now would almost sound like sour grapes because of the disagreements involved between him and the Billiard and Snooker Congress.

    If his antics border on sharking he should have put a stop to them a long time ago out of respect for his competition in matches. Or, maybe no one wanted to upset him because he is a draw. I think that there is definitely a double edge sword swinging in the wind there.

    Alex was suing the organizing entity; ...of the sport he makes a living from. Was that the right thing to do?

    Ginger, in my opinion he has every right to take the action he is taking. I'm not saying it is the right action, but to stand still and let an organization put a label on one that will have a negative effect on ones career creates a potential power play that could extend to other players. As I mentioned before, it sounds like nothing more than sour grapes by the Congress. Of course, like all media info, it could well be slanted one way or the other. The fact that Alex called their hand will put an interesting spin on the story. In other sports there are Commissions that a player can take their grievances to in order to settle disputes.

    You want to talk about sharking? It's spelled Earl Strickland.

    After hearing him in a interview where his antics were not well received in a certain country I have no respect for this man. Especially after hearing such a foul mouthed vulgar reply he gave about these pool fans.

    I'm sure you've heard someone go off the air into a cussing insane mode. Well this was what it was.

    I was even more disappointed in the ones doing the interview who claim their goal is to promote pool in a good light, when in reality, they were laughing the whole time which just made it worse.
