Saw the video. Was amusing, but I'm not going to read an article about it.

What next? An article on Ronnie going to the toilet? Analysis of what he watched on TV? Explaining how crap he is because he scratches his foot?

Ronnie fans are so determined to prove decline, it's worrying.

He maybe SLIGHTLY past his best but he's definitely 100% not in decline, I mean he's the defending Masters Champion!

Being in decline IMO you are no longer wining or in contention (or rarely in contention) for tournaments. Hendry for instance was past his absolute best by about 1998 yet he was still a major a force for many years after and even won his seventh world title after this. I'd say Hendry was in decline from about 2007 onwards. And Davis was past his absolute best by about 1990 but was still a force for years afterwards and won The Masters in 1997.

Ronnie still has at least another 5 years where he'll be winning and in contention for big titles, and it wouldn't surprise me if he retired before he goes into too much decline.

He lost a frame in the Masters final, y'know. It wasn't a whitewash.

He lost even more frames when he won the Welsh Open final in February.

He didn't even win the final he got to a few weeks ago.

Anybody can see he's got worse all of 2016. Pathetic play from Ronnie, he is embarrassing the game.

Or something. :gag:

It wasn't aimed at you. In fact, you seem to be one of the few people talking sense on this subject.

In fact, there's not much of a subject to discuss in my opinion. Just he seems to have a lot of fans obsessed by proving that Ronnie can't play any more. I just can't understand why this is a big issue.

Every time he loses a match, or misses a shot it's decline. We've been saying he's in decline for at least three years now. He was in decline when he missed a pink in The Crucible final compared to some. rofl

Are the rumours true that Ronnie pulled out of the China Championship because he's not good enough to beat John Higgins anymore? #decline

That's horse manure. But why he didn't stay on a couple of days and pick up £15k for the first round is beyond me!!! He must have made a shit-ton of money doing promotional stuff while in China.
