    1. That’s not the PBA playing rules and Belmo should have complied. I don’t care if the two hate each other’s guts, the rules of professional behavior are to be followed. Very unprofessional of both players.

  1. The PBA has to be organized to avoid cheating and a negative image of the game. If the rules say you must write down the scores DO IT!

  2. They despise each other! I wouldn’t wanna write his score down either. I wouldn’t wanna make a mistake and instantly be called a cheater.

  3. It should be up to tournament officials to go around the lanes and write down scores. No cheating opportunity allowed.

    1. @DoomLordDeekus Derek I’m not sure about recent rules. I know in our league play that is ture, so it would make sense that each player signs the other’s scores.

    2. @pdef1949 if it were me I’d take a pic with my phone of the score monitor just in case lol. But I doubt this is ever an issue much at all. We just know the rift between Belmo and Rash lol

    3. @DoomLordDeekus Derek Yeah, no love lost there. I saw another video of Pete Weber talking trash to Belmo. And someone else replied that Belmo is not well liked among other pros. I don’t know if that’s true or not but rivalries always seem to exist. In my time in the Eastern Region PBA I knew of more than one.

    4. @pdef1949 I just wouldn’t want to be accused of cheating. I don’t follow golf at all so I wouldn’t know.

  4. Why can’t you write down your own scores? If you’re worried about cheating then have an official do it. Having somebody else or your opponent do it is risk of cheating as well. It doesn’t happen much I’m sure, but have them do their own or have officials do it…….end of stories. It’s like they want the rivalry to escalate or keep going instead of having it resolved. They are going to bowl each other every now and then, so just let them bowl and move on. Let’s be a bit more mature about what’s happening.

    1. So you think that letting someone break the rules, is the way to end the rivalry? There is no cheating involved. The scores can all be verified through the scoring system. They keep the scores on paper, so they can track them, and know where everyone stands at any given time.

    2. In archery tournaments, there’s always two scorecards where two separate people write them down. At the end of a round, it is then your job to check for any discrepancies and get it fixed

    1. @Darrin Lindsey πŸ˜‚ Lol… You’re being veeerrry unDude. I thought you trolls had senses of humor?! Hmpph

  5. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times…..bowling is one of the most extreme, heated sports EVER!

  6. Wait–why on earth would they have to write down each other’s scores? Is that some archaic, old-timey rule or something?

  7. I changed my mind … golf commentary is no longer the most boring, sleep inducing commentary. I’ll sleep better now. 😴😴😴😴😴😴😴

  8. This kind of thing shows that many professional athletes are protracted teenagers and that even grown men aren’t always grownups. Had similar thing happen in my league play last night. Tenth frame of the last game, and teh game is close. It was anchor man against anchor man…….their anchor threw a good shot, left a solid ten pin. I threww a good shot, expected a strike and ran it out a bit. He got all hot and bothered saying You ran it out against me? I jsut looked at him, packed a second strile while he amde hsi spare and got a strike. I nailed the third one for a one-pin victory. We had a few words but basically he was telling me I wasn’t that good, wasn’t a pro….until I told him Ii was a PBA member for two years. He shut up after that, but we went head to head the rest of the night. But I was so far inside his head it wasn’t funny.
