could be argued Davis should have got one last season on the back of his efforts in the WC
but they were done away with last year so i dont think Hearn will do a U-Turn this year.
Personally id like to see all previous World Champions on tour invited back to play the Masters since thats the name of the tournament, similar to the golf Masters.
So that would be Davis, Doherty, Ebdon and Hendry would be invited plus as a legend of the game Jimmy would also take a place.
Its invitational anyway so i dont know why it ALWAYS has to be the top 16, in theory it could be any players at Wemb, er Ally Pally
Your proposal is ridiculous.
Hows it ridiculous? Heantr should give the fans what they want to see, we see the top 16 every week virtually, pick the creme of them and throw in some legendsto the mix i say.
Im sure Joe Punter would rather see these 5 players making up the 16 man field than the likes of Mark Davis, Bingham etc
Anyway there was once talk that previous WC would get to the Crucible, even as far back as the early 90s so Reardon, Spencer, Higgins etc when they 1st started failing to qualify.
You could do a new event with all active world champions but you can't trash the 3. biggest tournament.
