My eyes werent working when I first read the options although I do like the PTC's. As for the Shootout, well it's a bit of fun and ok to watch but this new Premier League is rubbish and I have no time for it. The ld format was much better. I do applaud them for trying to change it a bit, but frankly, it's a disaster.
well basically why i could not differentially between UK and the rest now.
nonsense to group it in with the rest just cos its been reduced down to best of 11s.
believe me best of 11 is a massive difference to a best of 9 just as a best of 9 is a massive difference to a best of 7.
funny how snookerfan is nearly in tears when he talks about best of 7s pleading for them to be best of 9s cos its a big difference but best of 11s are a disaster.
sure id have liked best of 17s to stay but best of 11s are still more than the standard rankers so should be a seperate vote for these.
plus the prestige, history of the UK, ranking points available, the new venue , the buzz just before Xmas and the fact its the first full ranker after a 3 month gap etc etc
of course its still the 2nd biggest and worthy of its own bit in the vote.
