John Higgins has given an interview to the Eurosport website in which he speaks of his frustration of how the sport is being run by World Snooker.
Higgins has become the most vocal critic of the governing body among the players since setting up the World Series earlier this year.
As a twice world champion he is entitled to his opinions and I think most of his fellow players would agree with them.
The World Series has shown that there is a huge appetite for snooker in Europe and credit goes to him for taking tournaments to the continent.
However, I am slightly alarmed by the mention lower down the interview of reducing the traditional game from 15 reds to six or ten.
John is right that there are many, many things that could be improved in terms of how snooker is run.
But one thing that does not need changing is the game itself.
