Rant over

Not at all, if I were eloquent and patient enough I'd have said exactly the same, its the tip of that iceberg that I was responding to in the first place ;)

0.4m peak for the first day of this bizarre competition. Much higher than it's equivalent normal times competition could dream of and especially high given players involved.

 

For context 0.78m was the peak for last years Tour Championship semi-final on ITV4 between Judd Trump and Ronnie O'Sullivan, on a Thursday evening in March.

This seems as good a thread as any to tell you I've create a snooker forum

You absolute hypocrite :lol:


1. Don't post adult content on the main forums (logged in members will see a Saturday Night Bar area where this is permitted.)
2. Don't post purely for the sake of inflaming other posters (known as trolling), we're looking for your opinion not how good you are at riling people up.
3. Treat other posters with respect and courteously

I mean that's literally the bare minimum not to get into legal trouble iirc.

 

Did you get to the bit where the former owner of a snooker forum I used to frequent years ago and got banned from 4 years ago turned up to have a go at me along that vein. Apparently I drove him off his own forum (this is bollocks, he was still posting years after I was banned - he just couldn't cope with the responsibility of adminning....:lol:) - tbh I thought he'd died or something, turns out he's the world's longest grudge holder.....

RIP Willie Thorne -

 

Willie was a true snooker obsessive and fan as well as player, I'm not old enough to remember him playing but I've listened to thousands of hours of him talking about snooker matches and providing valuable insight over many years. I'll miss his commentary. 

 

It's a shame his life has ended at a relatively young age and been somewhat marred by off table problems - but it's always been clear he was a damn good player and damn good commentator.
