I'm looking back at some of the comments on Kelly Kulick's match against Chris Barnes in the TOC and now people are saying that Chris purposely threw the match to promote bowling more and to boost the PBA's popularity, and how the PBA is rigged today just like a typical WWE wrestling show. That's just crazy if you ask me. What do you guys think?

I strongly disagree that Barnes threw that match. If it is ever determined that he did, he should be banned for life from professional bowling.

Barnes isn't the type of person to do that....who would purposely give up the crown jewel of professional bowling?  Honestly...lots of quacks making comments methinks....

The people that say the whole moon landing was faked are the same people who'd say that Barnes threw the match.  Just ignore them...life is much more enjoyable that way!

Barnes throwing the Kulick match about as likely as:  Bigfoot......Y2K........Elvis still alive........area 51........ivory billed woodpecker..........nostradamus predicting 911...........war-of-the-worlds broadcast...........bermuda triangle.............crop circles..........a second term for Obama............single-digit unemployment.......me winning the powerball..........Pete Rose in the hall of fame.............bats lay eggs in your hair and you go crazy...........and............a second term for Obama...

Just saying

Ummmmmm......she shot 265.  Conspiracy?  Not.  Did an alien throw the ball for her too?  265 will win 90+ percent of titles matches.  Didn't matter what Chris did.....she wasn't bowling Chris, she was bowling against the pins.
