I don't see why people feel this way. I mean, like most people I can take or leave shot clock snooker. But is Ronnie really that vital to this tournament? I get that he's popular, and wins it most years. But surely the fact he's not in it, and somebody else having the opportunity to shine gives this tournament an edge it hasn't had in recent years.
We got Judd Trump there, who is close to Ronnie in levels of speed and popularity. And the humerous site of Ebdon trying to fit his thinking time of each shot into a matter of seconds.
Or is the Premier League really just an excuse to show Ronnie to the masses?
