This, is a travesty of justice, I just got finished watching the 2014 PBA Wolf Open where there was some absolutely solid bowling by all 5 finalists, with Sean Rash coming out as the champion, but what does Sean Rash get for his 110% effort running the table in tonight's CBS Sports Network telecast?
The answer, a measly $10,000 for winning the title, and he had to bowl a perfect game (in which he did in his first match against defending champion Chris Loschetter) just to double that ($10,000 more), that being the bonus for a 300 game on TV
, the 23rd ever televised 300 game, but it shows that the PBA is in serious trouble and it's getting completely out-of-control and getting worse.
Now as for the $10,000 for winning the title, that may have been acceptable back in 1968, but not in this day and age, just think of it, 10 grand back in 1968 could buy you a brand new Cadillac, but now, it won't even buy you a Kia or a Hyundai, maybe a down payment on one but that's about it.
Face it folks, and fellow bowlers and PBA fans, it will take either Lord Jesus Christ or another kind of miracle to even come close to saving the Tour and maybe some of the players who happen to have that "perfect back-up plan" called a college degree should think of maybe another career or maybe putting some of their winnings into some stocks and bonds, and all of you fellow fans should stock up on some of those great-looking High 5 Gear PBA Player and League jerseys for collector's sake because we will probably see the demise and ceasing of all operations of the PBA as we know it within about a year or two.
