On the eve of the Haikou Open (
), the Daily Bash asks the key question: should big Baz cough up the dosh for Ronnie? Appearance money was ruled out a while back and the Daily Bash has no truck with it normally, World Champion or not. But are the snooker fans in China going to miss out on seeing the Genius this Spring because Baz won't dig deep in the snooker kitty? Let's put it this way; the Genius won't go on forever, and when he's gone, he's gone. All the money in the world won't buy a Tardis so we can go back and give Ronnie some money to appear in more competitions, or failing that, buy Ronnie a DeLorean so he can play all the major players throughout history, at the same time, and not only be the greatest of all time, but also have eternal, omnipotent, kick-ass domination, m-wah, hah, hah! Would it be right to make an exception for the exceptional and pay the maestro
to appear at a few more open tournaments before he retires?
