Yes I am and I'll tell you why. People say that bowling has lost it integridy and they blame the lane conditions and new dynamic balls. But the way I see it is that the competators do not have integridy with lack of competativeness and scorn of the rules put in by the governing body. The excuse of not knowing the rules is just another example. Who competes in a game where dues are paid (oh yeah I forgot, subs tend to not pay dues and therefore are not invested in the game), and prize fund is given without knowing anything about the rules? Happens in bowling all the time, but you don't get in a car and drive without knowing the rules. And reguardless of the conditions and equipment, if the competators do not honor the game then what's the use? I mean coming in one week bowling right handed, then left handed, then right handed.....what the heck. What kind of honor does that give the game you're just playing not competing. And I understand that we have handicap and therefore it seems that it shouldn't matter after all handicap will balance it out either way. But when you start playing with the ethics of the game and treating it like a joke, then its hard to regain any honor and integidy that's been lost. Right now its just a game, switching back and forth, but it won't be long before one night you hit a tough team and you make a choice of hands to use instead of just arbitrary back and forth. The players don't honor the rules, the league officers don't honor the rules then how can we ever have this sport taken seriously?

Olympics??? don't even bother to bring it up.
