    Yeah darts builds up tournament by tournament. Also imposed by Hearn.

            It's like in someways us working for a big massive company, where we've been the driving force, we've took the company to new heights, we've made the company bigger, we bring in more customers then anyone else, then we get a £10 bonus in a wage slip.
            Might be another stupid statement from me but you can see where I'm trying to come from here.

I don't believe any other player would have 'spoken out' like this and it seems to have been noticed as I heard it read out on national news shortly afterwards. It sends a clear message about what he thinks of snookers slow decline from the golden years and I think he let a lot of people down in the crowd by denying them perhaps the only chance they'll ever get to see a 147 in person.

              Exactly, he's let the paying public down once again and especially for the folk who've never witnessed a 147! Why not make the maximum and give the £10k to a worthy charity?

                  A worthy charity who's boss's earn 10k a week maybe, or do people also forget that Ronnie took time out of the game to earn thousands for the pink ribbon charity

                    +1 i know its not the same but an old company i used to work for used to pay our hourly rate then a bonus per day productivity, when you see someone work less for the same bonus or more it does stick in your throat.

                    I hope this causes Hearne to re think as it is worthy of a bigger prize.

                      He can pot around corners, simply put he could easily have made an angle.

                        Ronnie just turned it around big time, he looked fed up earlier and then to go on and do something like that !!

                        Good show - he has made his point now.
                        You're correct here. This is the most news coverage of snooker that I've seen in a very long time!

                          Exactly mate, its woken everybody up, got people talking, comments flying everywhere etc.
                          Its like a love / hate divide lol.
                          How about yourself - did you approve of his 146 or do you think he should have made the max ?

                                +1, snooker in the limelight can only be a good thing.

                                what about players such as M.Williams not trying too hard once the frame is won, he could have had plenty more centuries if he had. Does he deserve a ban for not trying his hardest?
