The game is always the same. 

The players change. The mentality of things changes. 

for example watch bob anderson play, even a little Phil. They stay on 20's, even start on them on a number like 306. They just muscle their way down the board. Players today know that from 309, two T19's and a 25 leave an out. Its brought a new level of mathmatical finesse to the game in the last 10 years. We have seen 134's, 174,177's rise dramatically. I blame MVG a little for that. I blame Phil for the use of 19's in the 134 combination. 

The sports science has changed. Guys throws are more fundamentally rooted. Solid Rhythmic backswings, good firm forward motion with a good follow through. gone are the days of a jocky like thrower, or even a Priestley style.

Your spot on..............  my sentiments exactly.
