It's funny that you never had Higgins in your top player spot, it was always Hendry, because 7 > 6 as you always said ad nauseum. This algo comes along and you change your tune completely simply because it doesn't have Ronnie as the GOAT, and so you wish to dance around his ashes. If it had had Ronnie at the top, you wouldn't have contributed to this thread or this conversation and you know it. This trolling is transparent even by your low standards. Well it's a bit of fun, I suppose.
Ronnie has more majors than Hendry or Higgins, so that gives me all the info I need.
But you know Dan is right Vodka. If this very same "study" had O'Sullivan as Number 1 you probably would call it a biased study, not worthy of discussing. Since someone, in this instance not Hendry, is number 1, you fully credit this crap study which puts players like Ryan Day and Carter above legends of the game.
And in the one major there is in Snooker, it's 6 - 4 in O'Sullivan's favour compared with Higgins, plus both are from the same generation.
The GOAT debate should always be, in my humble opinion, between Hendry and O'Sullivan.
