In seriousness, if it would be O'sullivan, everyone would go on the band wagon and say its another excuse not to play. I only can assume
White did not want to go, as hes been on the circuit for a couple of decades and travelled all over the world
I was waiting for somebody to bring up Ronnie O'Sullivan's name. But the difference being that Ronnie has pulled out of so much in the last few seasons, that it's going to make people suspicious of his reasons.
With Jimmy on the other hand, the highlighted bit in your quote leads me to believe that Jimmy isn't pulling out because he doesn't want to play there. He was playing in India a few months back, on a voluntary non-ranking event. Why would he want to pull out when there was ranking points at stake? That doesn't make sense.
For me, Jimmy's love of the game is not in question. If it was, why would he still be playing on now he's a gazillion years old?
