I liked the telecast yesterday. It was cool see both semifinal matches bowled at once, and interesting to see the title match bowled on the right lane of the 1st pair, and the left lane of the 2nd pair. I wonder why they did that. I hope they do that for the rest of the telecasts

The reason for the final match being bowled on 1 lane of each pair to eliminate the advantage a bowler might have for being on the same pair for both matches.

I don't like this shortened format for the WSOB matches for the sole reason that I want to see more bowling!!  Give me a 5 man stepladder.......

They need to chance what they call it it isn't "PBA tour title" they don't tour anymore it can be a PBA title but take out the word tour.

I'd imagine it cuts down on what the PBA has
to pay ESPN to broadcast these so called PBA Tourneys.


In all reality there is no PBATour .....just a bunch of shows
taped at the same time.Championship Bowling was a lot more
exciting and fun to watch.

Wonder who the lefties will be on the next show?

I always thought it would be amusing if the "tour" came to our town and they ended up having to hold the finals at the 8-lane hall I bowl in.  Watched the Cheetah Championship last night, and come to learn it was being bowled in a 10 or 12 lane hall.  Interesting....

Just the finals were bowled in the 12 lane house.Another gripe of mine is
moving the finals to lanes that weren't part of the qualifying

I couldn't agree more!!  Changing the venue for the finals is pure insanity.

That's the TEN LANE center I was mechanic at during my time at the NBS. That center has four lanes, support poles and six lanes.

They didn't use 87-88 because that's where the booth was. 79-82 was the practice area, and 83-86 was the tv pairs.

I liked the two pair championship match. It's like how they do it in Europe.
