That sort of corruption would not surprise me with Higgins.


Williams does it all the time. Was in Ken’s book

Ronnie says something stupid and he gets a 100 page threads worth of condemnation.

Selby says something stupid and is met with silence from the hipsters.

To be fair, even Ronnie wouldn't have a 100 page thread within two minutes of him saying it.

Imagine you fell in to a coma after the 98 final. You have just woken up and a nurse says to you "Ahh! You have woken up. You're just in time to watch the World Snooker final. It's John Higgins vs Mark Williams."

Your memory is rekindled and you turn to the nurse and say "What? Have I been asleep for a whole year?"

Probably.

He wanted it moved from The Crucible too.


Ronnie said it too. The exact quote being, "If the money's right, we'll go anywhere", when asked about the possibility of the World Championship moving to China.

Ronnie doesn't know what he wants.

This week he was saying that there's no other venue that comes close to the Crucible.

Your going to need to cite that, that would be corrupt and certainly against World snookers rules.

When’s your son going pro?

The way things are going nowadays he'll end up a World Champion even
if he never hits a century.


The fact I can only practice a few hours a week doesn't seem so bad now...
