SnookerEd25 wrote:THE BALLAD OF PETER LINES :
Oh, Peter Lines
They’ll be handing out fines
Because you spoke your mind
You should have left it all behind…
On the table where you ply your trade
Once match is lost, just let if fade
Come back to fight another day
Or practice hard upon your play
Take a leaf out of your son’s book
He knows his way round this game, snook
Sinks balls, makes plants, shakes hands and goes
Never makes trouble for other pro’s
So what have you learned from this, old Pete?
To keep it buttoned, when you do meet
the gent who best you on the baize;
come back and play, on other days…

That's what Selby did at the World Championship.

Peter's surname is variously "Lines", "Lanes", "Lions" and "Lins", plus there's the memorable sentence "Xiao Guodong revealed that after the game, Lions spoke rudely to himself and vomited fragrantly".
Still no idea what went on.

Just over 9 minutes into the video.
There wasn't any outburst at the table, it all happened later.

Was a dotcom bubble word back in the late 90s/early 2000s
