The sport is heading in the completely wrong direction, Hendry pioneered the modern game, followed by ROS, MJW & the likes of Higgins, Hunter etc. Now we're going backwards into the 80s game.
Sure, there's still a lot of breakbuilding but in order to win these days you have to be willing to slog it out in a game of chess, and yeah I appreciate that's hardcore snooker but to the audience it drags on too long.
The modern game should focus on long potting and one-visit breaks to create a nice consistent flow to the game, not stop-start snooker with the winner emerging completely exhausted and only claiming victory through intense, boring, grinding late hour safety play.
It's a shame it's going backwards.
