I am sure you are aware, John, that he can't "roquet a stationary DB
ball" (nitpicker alert). His ball may strike a stationary DB ball, but
that is not a roquet, any more than a collision with a dead ball is a
roquet. What you should have written was "if he purports to roquet a
stationary DB ball". Then you'd have got away with it.
