And I think you're wrong on that - the 100% I mean. Snookerbacker doesn't come across to me as a ROS fan, far from it, and he doesn't like Selby's style of play. Dott is a player, someone you like BTW, and he isn't close neither to ROS nor to Selby, but go back to the interview he gave you: he branded Selby "the most negative of them all". Why can't you accept that Selby is not everyone's cup of tea and that he IS negative at times, especially in important matches. Even him admitted to it on his blog: he tends to play not to lose rather than to play to win when put under pressure and he knows he has to change that if he wants to built a record to match his talent.
monique with respect Selby doesn't even come close to the most negative in the top 16
