Ideally, I'd like both. But if I have to pick, I pick Dale. He's barely ever played at The Crucible, and Jimmy would have trouble getting to the second round if he got an automatic bye.
Not at all. He is a legend, and a undeletable part of snooker history. He's the only player whose autograph I have twice. If it was a straight choice between these two, I'd pick Dale. It's been good to see Jimmy qualify for a lot of tournaments, really it has. And despite it being a blah match, it was good to see Jimmy play Hendry at Telford. We just shouldn't pretend that his appearances in ranking events are anything more then pleasurable nostalgia any more.
Also, I like Dale. Because he's random, and wears funny suits.
