RE: Balog on BPT opener – Mr Balog, I agree with what you said. You don't need me to say that, though. I was entertained the whole time watching this tournament play out. Watching Jordan at the end, the moment he knew it was over and he had won, was pretty cool. And the live scoreboard for the other guys, knowing where they are at, and that they are close and have a chance. Wait until the tournament when it's a little closer and someone is making a genuine run at the leader, kind of like Evers was doing, where it's a pound and ounces deal and not pounds. That will be exciting.
The one thing I see that may cause some to scoff at this format is the overall weight. Jordan caught the most weight on the last day, true, but Gagliardi had him beat by 5 pounds! I'm sure that Gagliardi is thinking, "Dang, I won that, but I didnt win." Still, he knew what he signed up for, so he gets what he got.
Honestly, I enjoyed it. But right now, I am watching the Elite Series weigh in at the St Johns. I enjoyed watching them fish today. I enjoy bass fishing! Not gonna knock the FLW, but they have some ground to make up when it comes to coverage and their website.
Enjoy your stuff, Mr. Balog. Thanks.
