Two minds on this.
I really don't think it's fair that this tournament should affect a proper ranking event like it has done here. (And has done previously.) It shouldn't affect a players rank, it should be invitational. In which case, Ronnie would be at the PC.
Saying that, a lot of people were acting like 'kamikaze Ronnie' was hilarious. Maybe he should've taken the tournaments he was in more seriously?
When it comes to Hearn, I'm sure privately he'll be a bit disappointed that Ronnie isn't there. But not so much that he'll change anything about the Shootout.
It's his job to promote snooker at the end of the day, not promote Ronnie. He certainly won't complain in public.
