Read it again properly.
Nowhere in that article is Ronnie "whining" about "his money troubles".
Everything he says is actually quite correct. Most things, especially property, is much more expensive now than it was 20 years ago. Snooker has, more or less, stayed the same whilst other things have moved on, but as he says things are improving under Barry.
This article is a non-story, IMO.
what he fails to mention is that when there was a offer on the table in 2000 for improved prize money and tournaments Ronnie was one of the players that backed against that.
the reason the money stagnated and went nowhere in snooker for the last 20 years has been down to the players backing the previous regimes "better the devil you know" scenario and lack of ambition to get things better that is why Barry Hearn was insistant on that 51% because without that players would still have a massive voice in the Running of the Game which has been a downside for donkeys. it will take years best part of 10 years for Barry Hearn to pull things round it wont be a overnight thing.
