When will Barry Hearn finally grow a pair and deservedly chuck this guy out of the game for good?

Still, hardly crime of the century. Awful photo though!

In one respect, I'd be somewhat hypocritical of me to have to a go at people for going out getting drunk. I've done enough of it in my time, if I'm honest. And I can be quite lairy.
Saying that I do think that doing it the night before a quarter-final match in a ranking event is a bit unprofessional. Doesn't sound like he's taking the tournament seriously.
Kind of feel bad for the taxi drvier too, I mean it is his living. £5 isn't anything to somebody as rich as Higgins.

If he wants to harm his chances of going further in a tournament, then that's his own stupidity. (Though it does his own family out of the extra prize money as well.)
It just seems such an odd thing to do. If he's bothered enough to enter a tournament, why hinder your chances like that? He's won so much in the game, he could retire with his legacy intact. Why enter tournaments that you aren't bothered about trying to win?
