I do love the old game and the players that put bowling on the map and allowed us to have everything we have today in bowling.
To minimize them, or disparage their styles and achievements is an insult to them and bowling itself.
That being said, I am willing to improve and work on things that can help me to bowl better and with less, or no pain.
I have already stated earlier that I am not entrenched.
So just saying "Nord doesn't want help and wont change" is not true and not valuable.
Who is minimizing them? I have not seen one person disparage their styles and achievements.
Today's bowling is such a different sport than what it was in the 50's and 60's, that's why its been said over and over again, and the word "modern game" has been used so often. what they bowled on, what they bowled with, it worked for them, Just like football, the game is so different than your 3 yards and a cloud of dust,run heavy offenses. Everything changes, and we have the ability as human beings to adapt and change with them.
You went and practiced, so you did you normal throw down 10 and knuckled the ball, you were so happy with that, you even gave it a nickname. You were keeping track of strikes. That's not practice, and that wasn't giving what Eric asked (numerous times) you to do a fare shake.
There is nothing wrong with what you want to do, what you are in love with style wise. Kudos for bowling even with injury, just don't expect to see anything change. I just hope you keep enjoying bowling.
