The mere suggestion by two legends of the game took me by surprise. We all know Ronnie hasn't got the attention span to remain comfortable in Sheffield for 17 days (well, that's the excuse given by his fans when explaining why he hasn't won more World Championships) but the World Championships is all about stamina, staying the course. It's a marathon and may the best man at the end of it win and be totally exhausted and spent mentally when they lift the trophy.
Steve Davis took me by surprise and his comment about maybe having the final over a single day had me shaking my fist at the television in anger. He has dropped right down in my estimations. He is meant to be a die hard snooker fan who wants the best for the game and the fans. How dare he suggest shortening the format when there is no call to do so? How dare he publically mention shortening the World Championships and the exposure our game gets during the the main snooker festival season of the year?
So let's have the debate
