    After arriving home from the Grand I finally got some time to sit down and catch up on TS.com.

    Getting quite a chuckle, 2 posts with a couple of replies with regards to the GAH Champion and a dozen or so with hundreds of replies about the money and other BS. Don't know about most but I shoot for the fun of it...sure its nice if I hit for a couple of bucks on the lewis. And don't get me wrong I would love the money!

    Curious to see when T&F is published after the Grand who makes the cover? Will it be the person who won the most prestigious Handicap Championship in the world or the one who collected the $100K.

    Don't take me wrong I do appreciate the Martins and how they are attempting to help the sport, but most are getting a little carried away with this $100K thing.

    Can remember years ago walking around Vandalia a seeing some of the past Champions wearing the big gold rings, very impressive!! What will we see in years to come sashes with $100,00 embroidered on them?

    Just think we are putting a little to much emphasis on the money and not enough on the actual shooting achievements!

    Just one person opinion!!

    The guy probably had to do some pretty good shooting to win the money too.
    Rings are overrated, and to me, uncomfortable. Show me the money.

    Pretty nice to have won the big handicap. And get a beautiful champion ring.
    Money or ring all adds up to pretty good shooting, Only in my dreams.

    Go sit in a lounge with a bunch of good looking younger ladies sitting at the bar someplace and flash the ring and see what happens, then try the same thing on another night with the cash and see what happens ... Now, you have a good reason to make the Logical choice, then get out of Dodge ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Maybe, WPT, but, when the cash is gone, I could still pick up the ugly ones with the ring....

    Just how long do you think your life span would be if you got home and told the wife you took the ring instead of the 100k if it was a choice? On the other hand it might be just a short......
