Doesn't really matter what the competition was, that is neither here nor there. Fact is Hendry has more world titles than Ronnie does, that is the bottom line.
And I think Ronnie would say the same. He'll be the first one to admit he's bottled it at the Crucible many times when it looked like he could challenge Hendry's record.
One match shouldn’t change your opinion of who the GOAT is, Cloud.
I know why you say it but in reality nothing’s changed in the last two days.
It's not just one match though, is it? It's the last 6 years. I always felt Ronnie would win a few more times at the Crucible, so for me Hendry's record was a moot one, Ronnie was always going to beat it, as far as I was concerned. Now that hope has been extinguished, it has allowed me to look at the GOAT debate in a new light.
PS - I think it's a good thing if people change their minds or opinion on something, it shows flexibility. If more people did it the world would be a far better place. Too many people are stubborn when it comes to their own viewpoint and are unwilling to take on other differing views. Not having a go at you, just speaking generally.
