What can I say?
I am just a great fan of the sport I guess :)
I can understand why people resent Ebdon, but IMO Selby is a class act and his safety play is top notch.
Yeah, I'm not a fan of Selby, but unlike some Ronnie fans I always respected his game and you're right his safety is top class.
Who isn't a fan of Ronnie?
I wrote a post on here last year explaining why I'm not a fan of Ronnie, unfortunately it was removed. In given a fair overview of my opinion of Ronnie to you now I'd run the same risk. To put it mildly I think he is a brat who thinks he's bigger than the sport and has persistently shown it disrespect from walking out half way through matches to taking ridiculously long breaks just because he had a free ride into the next years world championships. He is a very good player that can't be denied, but he doesn't have the temperament and respect for the game and ultimately class that Hendry and Davis had.
Hmm.. Interesting opinions there,
But let us face it, Snooker would come off as drab and boring to anyone who does not play the sport, and Ronnie is by far the biggest ambassador for the sport.
He did go through a tough phase earlier, but that is all history now.He walked out... once?
He has certainly grown past it, and many commentators would say, battled his mental demons and come out successfully.
