I agree for the most part, but I do feel like Ronnie goes abit too over the top sometimes and should try and tone it down. I definitely think we've reached some sort of tipping point during the Welsh Open, as fans have openly started calling Ronnie out for it.
It's alright to praise someone and have respect for them, however some of the fawning by Ronnie over Higgins, especially during this Welsh Open, has been cringeworthy and just a little bit creepy, if I'm honest. Almost like a stalker. If this is the sort of mindset and attitude he's taking on to the match table against Higgins, is it any wonder he has such a poor record against him?
So yeah, by all means praise someone, but try and keep the fawning and the fanboyism to a minimum please, Ronnie.
