Re: Disqualification at the USBC Open Championship

Good on the USBC for enforcing the averages! People committing the time, money, and effort to participate should be assured that the rules are being followed and enforced. This should bring some peace of mind to bowlers with doubts about the USBC's commitment to their own rules. Hopefully it will also deter other people from trying to buck the system.

Incidentally, I have also noticed in increase in average verification and rules enforcement at local run-of-the-mill tournaments. Perhaps this is a growing trend, and it is definitely for the better!

USBC (and formerly ABC) has failed to enforce its own rules in so many documented instances, so it's good to see the enforcement of the entering-average rule in this year's Open tournament.

Re: Disqualification at the USBC Open Championship

Funny, this only happens because usbc posted video of said bowler taking the lead in the event. That leads to several people posting how there is no way this guy averages under 209 and then starts questioning his previous tournament averages etc.

USBC only followed through because they opened a can or worms on social media and got a lot of backlash.

Bet we see a lot fewer highlight videos now, particularly from the Standard Division.

Holy [redacted]. 'Bout time.
