Has he shown in face in public again?

I guess if you're a money hussy then no amount of shame will keep you away.


Maybe they offered him some ranking points.

Bill was my favourite player. I guess you might have met/played some of them (don't want to assume your age)


I never got to play Bill unfortunately but did meet him once, real nice guy, sorely missed.

I've played Cliff, Kirk, Jim Wych, Alain Robidoux....pretty much all the whose who of Canadian snooker. They're great players and gentlemen one and all. I still see them all fairly regularly with the exception of Alain.

Turning 50 this September.....God time flies :-(

Higgins supported it in an interview after his match with Bingham. He was critical of the schedule in general.

He is old and out of shape.

I guess too many aspects of his game are just below top tier.


His health problems can't have helped.
