My hilarious joke aside, I agree on this issue. Especially with what D4P wrote here;
D4P wrote:If would be nice if WorldSnooker were to at least spread the events out enough such that there were no tournaments ending in China one day and starting in the UK the next day, or vice versa. There should be at least a week between events, especially those that are a long distance from each other.
How many times have we seen a player exhausted in a match, because they were playing in a different country 24 hours or a different continent 48 hours previously.
Hearn comes out with a lot of rhetoric about sending the players back to work, not rewarding mediocrity and other such verbal diarrhea. But if there's so much space at the start of the season, why not move a couple of tournaments earlier, to help ease the pressures on the travel.
Also, why wasn't the Paul Hunter Classic televised in any way. It used to be on the Eurosport main channel. Now it's on even on the player. There was no way of watching it at all. (Not counting any dodgy illegal ways anybody might have found.) And let's not pretend that was the only problem with the PHC.
Seems the ball has been dropped the last few months.
