"A massive failure on the CV of Ronnie." That's such a stupid thing to say Wild. What the hell does Ronnie have to do with what kind of fans he has. Is it Selby's fault he has hammers like you among his fans?
stating facts mate.
yea nothing to do with Ronnie and i have it on good authority that he is embarrassed by some of his fans.
Of course he's embarrassed by some of his fans. He has thousands more fans than most other snooker players so it's only normal he has some obnoxious fans as well as real snooker fans. But you can't blame Ronnie for that. He has so much fans because he's such a great player.
What I find a bit ridicilous is the obsession you have with Ronnie and his fans, Wild. It seems every chance you get you want to say how ridiculous Ronnie fans are and how ashamed Ronnie should be because of his fans. You act like a little child, Wild. Grow up and act like a grown man. We've heard it all before. It's like you're jealous of Ronnie or something.
Take a football player like Messi for example. He has millions of fans. Some of them will be real football fans who act respectful, and some of them will be idiots. Same with Ronnie. You can't blame Ronnie for being popular. How many loud fans did Alex Higgins and Jimmy White have? It's only normal. I'm sure Ronnie would rather be less popular and have less pressure and less loud fans and expectations, but that's just how it is.
There are some great Ronnie fans out there as well you know. Ray Reardon, Jimmy White, Stephen Hendry and me for example.
Even Mark Selby was a Ronnie fan when he was a kid.
If you love the game of snooker, it's impossible not to be a fan of how Ronnie plays snooker. You obviously have some issues Wild, get it sorted. We've heard it all before. "Ronnie's fans are idiots. Ronnie should be ashamed.." Grow up, you jealous baby. Talk about snooker, not about fans. When we talk about Alex Higgins, we talk about the way he played, not about what kind of fans he had. When you talk about Ronnie, talk about his talent. He deserves your respect. All the great snooker players respect Ronnie, so there's no need for him to be ashamed. Stephen Hendry once said the only player he would pay money for to watch him play is Ronnie. That's how special Ronnie's talent is. I bet Ronnie is proud of that. Yet, "real snooker fans" like you seem to only talk about Ronnie's fans and Ronnie's behaviour, instead of the way Ronnie plays. It's ridiculous.
