So yesterday, the USBC announced that the 3-unit rule in regards to lane dressing is dead. No more inspections needed. They acknowledged that the balls beat the oil so badly it was not an issue anymore.

Now there were a couple of immediate reactions, with the most prevalent being No kidding, glad you finally figured it out.

My reaction was how this furthers the perception that league bowling is not a real sport anyway, just an activity. I also think it furthers the perception that sanctioning is not required, and this is becoming a bit of a joke.

I fully understand how things are, many centers, including the one I have left, don't take the house shot seriously anyway. But as an old guy, I expect to find lanes so dry that I can no longer bowl. I just think it puts sanctioned bowling in the fast lane towards meaningless.
