I like both players, and they're both fantastic at their profession. I don't think it's ever really been doubted that I'm a bit of a Ronnie fan, but my respect for Higgins is there.
For me, O'Sullivan will always be the better of the two players, IMO. He has acheived more than Higgins with far less commitment and effort. I expect Higgins to overtake O'Sullivan in terms of ranking wins, and right now I think he's the more likely to win a fourth World Title... but nothing will change my opinion.
At his best, I've always maintained I've never seen anything like Ronnie in any sport. He's ahead of Higgins right now in nearly every head-to-head, and I think that's a testament to him considering he's had a lot less interest and commitment, IMO.
I haven't watched much snooker this week. I'm very sad to see O'Sullivan struggling, and winding down. To watch him against Bingham the last night, a player he has always crushed, was sickening and left me thoroughly snake hissed off. But my love for the game won't fade with the decline of my favourite all time player...
