Your loss

In one day, we got the greatest frame since the 1985 decider (the McGill-Wilson decider) and the greatest match since the 1985 final (O'Sullivan-Selby).

It was a better frame.

Did he sit down?

he should’ve sat down and shut up instead of crying to the ref. A good player let’s his cue do the talking.

So he should’ve let his opponent keep moving in his eyeline? I strongly disagree.

No he probably wouldn’t but that’s not the point is it? Clarke did the same against Perry in qualifying as well. It’s poor conduct.

And McGill did ask Clarke to sit down, if you watch the video he goes over to Clarke and then the referee intervenes when it escalates. I actually thought players were supposed to address the ref rather than the other player? That’s what Ronnie got criticised for against Mark Allen.

that's part of what the referee is there for.

The players only had their verbal altercation after the ref had spoken to Clarke. I felt Jan handled it all wrong actually. When McGill complained to him he should’ve said “OK, I will keep an eye on him [Clarke] and act if necessary”. As it was, as soon as Clarke returned to the arena Jan steamed into him with a formal warning and instruction to stay seated and still. In so doing he was taking sides with McGill, which he isn’t there to do.

Oh please Clarke did the same against Joe Perry and then made the situation worse with the you wanna dance. Guy's a parakeet as far as I'm concerned.
