I will be back for the new season (Ronnie's next tournament). Until then I'm gone and disappeared.
Selby's own brand of snooker is horrible to watch. But he doesn't care. Unlike entertainers like Ronnie O'Sullivan, he is quite happy if a frame drags on for over an hour.
Unlike you though, I quite enjoyed the tournament as a whole. There were some great matches and had Ding won, it would have been a great story. Too bad though, that a boring turd won it instead.
This is why I will never regard Selby as a great ambassador for the sport. He's too selfish for that. It's a win at costs mentality with him and he doesn't care what brand of snooker he employs to get that win.
He is quite happy to bore his opponent and the crowd into submission if it gives him a greater chance of winning. Retards like Wild don't get this.
Whereas with someone like Ronnie, he is very mindful of the audience and the need to entertain and give something back.
Anyway, it's a pointless debate and we all have our opinions on it. Happy off-season everyone.
