Have these high prestigious invitional tournaments for the top players, and maybe one day have a big brand sponsoring these tournaments, e.g, something like a Rolex, big car brand, a big sponsor like this would put Snooker even more on the map. I think Snooker is too reliant nowadays on betting sponsors, similar to the old days with tobacco sponsoring.
The problem as i see it is Barry Hearn wants everything Ranking.
Next season the China Championship will be Ranking for 128 flat draw. then the dreaded hoot out and the World Grand prix ....
and then he perseveres with this championship league crap...you dont need that rubbish.ranking events
World Championship (top 16 in to venue)
UK Championship (top 16 in to venue)
International Championship (top 16 in to venue)
Players Championship for top 16 on the one year list (last event before WC) Flat 128
2 Home nation events (rotations between Scot, Eng, Wales and NI)
then play invitationals based on Rankings, one year list and Champion of Champions
