Might be so, but something once again should be done in order to keep the interest. The Power Snooker was an interesting idea but it always was just too posh. If you know what I mean. The Shoot-Out just sees the lads to go do reveal it all for once and all. Can´t be that much great idea either. The game works with concept of patience, and that´s how it always should be.
So called yellow maximum is something which has highly interest me for some time now. Years ago I read that at least Alex Higgins once made during a practice match! Given how many normal maximums there just is going on, all the time, it can´t be the only a yellow one. To put it a very mildly lol. And given how many truly great mental strenght great players there currently is around. And given how many practice hours there just is. And so on. But my point is that making the "yellow maximum" there could be a bonus of perhaps even rewarding something really heavy.
Or then just receiving a hand ball after any given foul.
But the "yellow maximum" really "rewards" (it should reward...) the ones who can really see and keep the clear lines even when the cue ball really needs to travel.
Use both of those thumbs simultaneously and there´s your freedom.
I do understand his reasoning to withdraw from the Masters. Currently we realistically have Mark Selby, Ding Junhui, Ronnie O´Sullivan and Judd Trump to battle it out and to share it all. After that comes Mark Williams with his rock solid-contributions and John Higgins with his ever present "green" shot selections.
Ronnie O´Sullivan always prefers when there are more than that. Stuart Bingham usually is more than that, but currently he´s bit struggling. Too many "Smirnoffs" with Mark Allen.
What are the colours of the working class (currently)? YES, orange, yellow, green. They would wear those any way…… Great! A few neutral colours as well now available. They all can´t be working class people, but at least they would bull the people either way.
Ronnie O´Sullivan´s personality is too loose lol. Too relaxed. He also should have few those Smirnoffs with Mark Allen and Stuart Bingham, me thinks. But his attitude always is from superb to great. From superb to great. He always prefers the advantage of the whole sport of snooker, instead of his titles and winning percentages.
Fair play to Rod Lawler and to Mike. Just the PIIP is enough to them to call it as a profession! But I always need both of my thumbs, and really fastly so.
