Also, why does he rake up losses of fellow commentators in the comentary box? Is this a jealousy because he only won the World champs once (and was lucky to win that one. He's probably just a jealous old Irishman.
I legitimately think he is trying to hide his woeful lack of knowledge about the professional game from the audience at home.
At a previous tournament, Dennis Taylor admitted live over commentary that he didn't fully understand the miss rule, and had to have Steve Davis explain it to him. Embarrassing.
Taylor is a nice guy off the table, but he just doesn't know enough out snooker to commentate on him. He probably is proud of himself that he knows Neil Robertson's nationality. That's probably the only thing he can ever remember about him.
His joking around and golf stories, are further proof of his hiding his lack of knowledge.
