Great player rubbish pundit
but he typifies 10x over everything Witz dont like in other players.
I'm not sure people would agree with me here, but I always felt that Davis was actually jealous of Hendry's achievements?
Up to a few years ago, Davis and Everton were by far and a way my favourite contributors on the BBC, but while Everton maintains that position, Davis has plummeted and been replaced by Neal Foulds. Why the BBC persist with muppets like Virgo and Taylor ahead of Everton and Foulds defies all logic.
In a small way I think he did feel some jealousy. At least in his prime. Davis was top dog until Hendry came along. And if it hadn't have been for Hendry's dominance, Davis may have won more and held more records. Like the story I've told of Davis being arsey to me when I met him and mentioned him winning titles, I think there is still a small amount of professional jealousy there. He may well not dislike Hendry. But it's only natural when you're winning everything, and people are telling you that you're the best, to suddenly feel aggrieved when some kid turns up and it starts happening to them.
