Nobody watches the Saudi-funded golf league, but it doesn't matter because they have unlimited money and the sportwashing benefits offset whatever monetary losses they incur anyway.

If it's on ES I'll cop it, if it's crap can always turn it off, I mean have you seen what's on the bucking TV these days? Anything better than that rubbish.

I won’t be boycotting it for moral reasons but my interest in it isn’t exactly high.

Shame this tournament is only for 3 days and matches are best of 7s and the Final is best of 9!

Is that right?

Yeah, that's a bit rubbish.

But there is a mega-brilliant golden ball though.

Considering the prize money of this event and the fact that it's the top 8 players involved there should at least be a multi session final.

It's only a test event for the top players, but the real one will be open to every player on tour in late August next season.

Therefore the format doesn't really matter. Yes the Final could have been over two sessions, but it is what it is. There's been ranking events in the past with the final being Best of 9 and that is much worse than this lol

I wonder if O'Sullivan will pull out for medical reasons?!!!

As for the event in general World Snooker have got blood on their hands. The Saudis should be boycotted. It just shows what money whores they all are.

What price for your morality?
