This is Greg's son and I just wanna say one thing. Before people start posting about my father over and over, you may wanna give him a chance to speak or I'll speak in his place. Next time I'm in town I'll back him for whatever you'll want to play for. and i'm not talking about a couple of hundred... We'll just let everyone put their money where their mouth is... I'm not saying who is better. I know Joe Keith is great. I just don't like people using my father's name when he don't even get on the internet to know what everyone is saying...

Dude your dad is a good player. He is definitely one of the best around here. He is not near as good as he was back in the late 80s and 90s when he was barnstorming Jackson on a daily basis. I met Greg about 15 years ago and he gave me some great advice on pool and pool players alike and he was dead on. I like his style of play- fast and loose. He shoots hangers in at 100 mph and the cue ball goes flying 8 rails for position.
I wish Joe and Greg would play again. I will definitely be there to watch it. Pool action has gotten very lame around here for a long time. Characters like your dad and too few and far between and that is what is wrong with pool around here.

Yeah I enjoy a good game myself.... Whether it be watching or banging around a little nine-ball for a couple of dollars... However I play purely for the love of the game because lord knows I couldn't make a living at it... I'm going to be in town this weekend, and I'm going to try to convince him into getting some action going... However, most of the time he is wore out by the time he has free time... but we'll see.

My late husband, Daniel Watson, was one of the good pool players in the 70's. He played with Ted Pitts and Monday, just to name two.

Little Joe Keith, PERIOD.
Look I have been around the pool scene for a long time and have known Joe since he was Little Joe and have seen all the others come and go. I was one of Enlow "Pops" Adkins close personal friends and roadie so what I say you can take to the bank.
Now let me get this out there. Joe has been the best for about ten years now and he is not even 30 years old so what does that tell you?
He took the reigns from a man named Dennis Alsup. If you are not familiar with that name then you have no business even participating in this discussion on local pool players. Dennis died a few years ago but back in the 90's nobody had the nuts on Dennis. You had to get Larry Blackburn from Paris or Cookie or Christopher or Bo from Memphis to get there. If you are not familiar with those names then just log off now.
Waylon would probably be second best but don't get me wrong, he plays strong as hell especially on the box. He just is not going to get there playing Joe. Joe is a bit of a smarter player than Waylon and he will win more in the long run. Yeah Waylon has beat Joe in tournaments and stuff but Joe is way ahead of him in gambling matches regardless of what Waylon says.
Greg Hunter? Shit! He sure can talk a bunch of shit. He is good though. Very fun to watch but he aint getting there against Joe and he knows it. Joe beat the brakes off him one night in Union City when he was about 19. It was brutal! Whoever said Greg needs to go to the ATM and empty out and post up is all I got to say about that. I have a lot of respect for Greg but Joe is just a little better player that's all. I don't mean that as an insult.
Bruce is better than he thinks he is. He ain't beating Joe or Waylon or those guys but he sure is a 100 times better than he was when I first met him. Hell I remember when I used to torture Bruce and now I can't hang with him, not that I'm any good or anything. Bruce doesn't gamble as far as I know so it is hard to judge how he plays with competition. From what I can tell Bruce still has it in his mind that he plays like he did years ago when in reality he is much better. It would be nice to watch him stretch out.
Brooks Brothers???? uh........no.
Now this should settle this once and for all. To recap:
Best Player - Joe Keith
Second - Waylone Bane.
if you knew inlow and dennis so well whats your name

It would be fun to watch to say the least. Joe, Waylon, Greg Hunter, Bruce, Daniel Callens, Brooks brothers, and maybe brad shamlim. It would be a stacked tournament and some strong pool to say the least

hello my name is bubba scobey i dont play no more dont care to but i have a idea instead of everyone talking crap about everyone else why dont you just all get together name a time and place a month from now or 6 months from now and play i would suggest a 250 or 500 dollar buy in and i would also suggest a race to ten in 9 ball ball in hand no bar games such as 3 ball a good honest game with a offical roadhawgs would be the perfect place joe would welcome it he has a nice pool room no fighting no crap talking just play and no side betting like a tournament but unlike tournament you know what i mean kind of invitation only gig not just anyone can get in i would also suggest do it during the week in the day that way there is no distractions if this sounds like a good idea post your thoughts and i may ask joe at roadhawgs about it i would also suggest do it in the wintertime people play better in the winter and it will give every body time to practice i will say not to argue but joe keith would come out on top if this sounds like a good idea lets get it rolling

Daniel Callins is a strong player and One hell of a nice guy..! and can play with anyone when he has been playing...! But i think what it is that Joe is joe no matter if he plays once a week or once a month you are going to have to bring your AAAA Game to beat him not that he can't be beat cause he can just like anyone else he is just more consistent than any pool player around here..! Waylon is just as good as joe but if he don't play everyday he loses a little and takes a little time to get it back ( POINT BLANK ) anybody can beat anybody on any given Day if your hitting them good and getting the rolls...!
