Default Who is really washed up?

The other thread was a joke, here are a few guys who are getting long in the tooth.

I'll see Dave, Brian and Will playing in the King of the Hill Alaska tournament at the end of the month. They're fortunately playing Open since I had to drop down to Pro Master 40+ with not enough pros 50+ heading to Anchorage.

My gut says Feldberg. He was better than McBeth when he was on top. Literally amazing for a couple years. Then poof, drops Innova, drops into obscurity. I have heard more about some advanced players than Feldberg over the last couple years.

Some of these guys have been around for a while. So is "washed up", "fallen off" or what ever else really applicable? Shoestrings is the only one on here not 40+ or pushing it right? IDK if I was gonna call someone "washed up" I'd have to know I could beat them.

Washed up means no longer the same player they were. These guys have all dropped 20+ rating points the last couple seasons.

Feldberg played at an amazing level into his late 30s while not being a physical freak.
McCabe was hot mid 30s and won worlds but really hasn’t fallen off a ton, he’s probably doing the best of the bunch.
Schwebby is probably late 40s now and is a big guy who probably is losing mobility. Great thumbed though.
Avery is a physical freak, always hyped up for being about 6’4 and 250, innova really hyped him to make you think bigger is better. Had one great week and won worlds.
Rico has really fallen off the last 2 years, broke his 20 year cashing streak. Never had a big arm but his putting and diversity of shot always gave him a chance.
Shusterick got married and has really seemed to not care.

What a churlish and ungracious thread topic.

When asked about his reasons for retirement from the sport, a well-respected Hall of Fame member told me he simply couldn't put up with the mentality of the people anymore, and the more I read stuff like this thread topic, the more I understand and agree with his sentiment.

It strikes me as the mentality of someone who steals while being given...
