    ...yet.

    Relinquishing trident is ideological folly. Beware the great bear.

      Wait til you get Osbourne, then.

      He's played a blinder so far - cozying to right and left equally. He'll be the next PM, and for at least a decade.

          • So, to summarise. Ronnie has not done something. Something that other players manage not to do all the time. Ronnie not doing it is brilliant, and even rarer than him doing it. To say otherwise makes you an enemy of snooker, because Ronnie is snooker. Argument closed, engage political debate.

            Does that about cover it?

            Has Ronnie not done it again today? Does that make not doing it less rare, or are we still supposed to drown in our own ecstatic ectoplasm, because it's the rocket playing?

            Guidance required, because I'm still not getting it.

              • Late on the topic but here is my two cents: ROS is a bloody genius on the table and always a joy to watch BUT denying a blatant 147 to protest about the prize money allocated to a max is such a disgrace. OK, this guy knocks maxis for breakfast so it might be 'just another one' for him but man, just think about the fans, the audience, the people that actually PAID to see you play.
                Had I been in the audience, I would have been mightily peeved to see this guy potting the pink on purpose and denying all the fans the chance to see a maximum live. I understand ROS's intention was to make a statement but this was disrespectful for all the people watching it...Geez if ten grands is nothing for him, he should realize it's a great amount of quids for a lot of people!!

                      I'm pretty sure during the tournament most players knocked one out TBH.

                      • in my opinion the "rocket" man has delivered his point by declining 147. only he knows true reason behind it so everything else is a speculation.
                        nonetheless it was a pleasure to witness it.

                          I'm in complete agreement with you on this. Whichever way anyone wants to look at it, making a statement in this way is the wrong way to go about it. And I'm not even going into his reasons or if Ronnie is even in his rights to make such a statement the way he did. It all boils down to Ronnie disrespecting the (his!) audience watching the spectacle live...for them a 147 is a definitive highpoint in watching their beloved sport. Ronnie should at all times recognize this and go for the 147 (unless of course other factors deem it impossible to make the 147, in which case he should go for the highest break possible).

                              I bet Selby has a few snaps in his wallet for such occasions.

                              • Ronnie could have gone about it in a much more constructive way. Just complaining that the 147 prizer is too low isn't enough and the players need to work out a way of improving it. Did Ronnie actually suggest anything that could be done to improve things? I doubt it.

                                Maybe a new way of calculating winnings for a 147 is to take in to account the players history such as ranking and years as a pro. The least experienced the player the more they win for a 147. Or there is a set fund and at the end of the season it's divided by all the players who scored a maximum.
