        For a start, he doesn't like the game. He only does it to earn money. That's not the sort of attitude we should be rewarding to inspire our kids.

        Adam Peaty or Harry Kane for me. Probably Peaty.
        You completely sure about that? Surely the best sportsman we have ever produced. He's a genius and will never conform to social norms. Look at Mozart etc all the same just the way they are otherwise they'd be gracious but average like Sean Murphy etc.

          Fair point.

          I am completely sure that that's what he's said, very categorically, within the last 2 or 3 weeks. But it is fair to say that he is unusual, and what he says this week might be very different to what he said last week.

          No doubt he's an amazing talent and having won the UK Open again, and with your continued pleading, I think you've won me over!

            Spot on. You'd put your house on him winning unlike other so called English sports heroes. He wins when he wants to, entirely at his discretion. He just does not quite fit into the BBC middle class mould. They love him for boosting their ratings but can't embrace him like other also ranks like Henman, Wiggins or Farah. How ironic. Hes much more of a winner, streets ahead and has no baggage around his status at the top of his sport. As for Kane, when he erases his last disastrous World Cup, he might earn his place as a contender.

                He is good to watch on a bad day but when he plays like that it's just superb, the ref was having to speed walk around the table to keep up with him!

                  Just witnessed a sublime win at the guild by O Sullivan, he is on a different level to the other pros, and yes snooker is a sport and a blooming good one.

                    Yeah I watched it as well, Ronnie reckons he wasn't cueing well ..
                    He just makes snooker easy to watch, no fannying about taking ages over every shot .
                    The guy is absolutely class

                      The other factor is that his talent is properly tested against a wide competitive base. Snooker is not an exclusive sport and has been open to all classes. In addition the Far East interest is massive so his success is all the more notable.

                        I think they might well be rather more worthy of that title

                            Why? Because they are largely BBC faves that conform and never say a word out of place?? If Ronnie had never challenged the cosiness of the sport might he also be up there. In which case, is this not a tad unhealthy. In any case, some names on your list are at least a little tainted by association by recent events. Any british cyclist has had a huge advantage of the UK's 'professionalism' that has given them an edge. Ronnies skill is pure and not attained by being blessed by a special cue for example. Apparently!
