Will there be another Power Snooker?

Postby SnookerFan

When this came on in October, it seemed to split opinion, but the thread voting on whether it was a success ran for several weeks after the event did. (Mainly because Wild hated it, and felt the need to remind us. <laugh> ) I remember, a tad more people voted it as a success rather then failure.

People seemed to love the Snooker Shootout, but I didn't see much of it, so can't really comment. Have people forgotten about Power Snooker? Or was it just not as successful viewership wise as we thought?

Is that why it got so many votes for being a success? <laugh> The top moderator was the only one who liked it, and altered the vote count? :happy:

Though I must confess, I noticed a few of the aforementioned retards at the event. Going "oooooh" every time the Power Ball was potted, and being unable to contain their laughter when Michaela said; "Power Zone!" :zzz:

Wild obviously fell into the trap of judging the GAME by the crowd and not the game. So there were some snake hissed hammers who turned up. What the buck does that have to do with the actual game?

there were pised hammers a sky shootout and it was great value unlike the farce known as power snooker

but thats the thing the crowd was dominant to the point there was a presenter in the crowd interacting with them.

they were just encouraging crowd shouting and crowd getting snake hissed unlike Darts where its natrual.

It was hard not to notice the razmatazz they added though. They used to the whole thing as an exercise in adding chessy razmatazz. The presenter/announcer/general bloke was actually encouraging people to get drunk at one point. At one point, after Micahaela Tabb was interviewed, he turned round and went; "Wow. Is she an unofficial Power Girl, or what?" This after the website announced that having all-female referees was one of their 'innovative developments'. Image And those quirky funny coloured bright shirts they made them wear.

Point is, it has nothing to do with the rules of the game, but you wouldn't know it the way they shoved it down your throat like women and drunkenness were part of the game.

Sky Shootout was a pleasent surprise for me.

it was like 5 a side football they used to play during the summer dont know if they still do that.

but where players could snake hiss about for a weekend having fun...

the only thing i was snake hissed off about that was this talk of ball in hand rule replacing the miss.
