Editors Note:  A few things regarding Roberts comments about PBA averages.  Jason Belmonte’s highest average over the course of a season is 228.81.  Also during the 2000’s many players averaged in the 220’s including Walter Ray Williams Jr. twice leading the tour with a 227.04 in the 2004-2005 season and  a 228.34 in 2007-2008 season.  Thanks to Jeff Richgels for bringing this to my attention.
