Business as usual then...

What an idiot.

You'd think he'd mellow a little in his old age.

I was chatting to Kevin and Jimmy who were doing the tour last week with Alex and apparently these weren't the only incidents.

A far cry from the fabulous entertainment that Jimmy and Ronnie dished up for the Irish fans only a week before, with back to back 147s amongst a barrage of big breaks.

Why does Jimmy continue to go out of his way to help him if this the thanks he gets?

Hopefully this will put a stop to all the fools who defend him whenever he behaves badly.

Probably not though.

You're right anonymous. The fools who defend him did indeed come out and, as read in comments at various online news articles, some still claim that he was responsible for O'Sullivan and Hendry having made millions due to him making it a popular sport...! Perhaps Richard Dawkins should do another book titled The Hurricane Delusion.

Agreed Claus.I don't understand people feeeling sorry for Higgins because he has no money when he made millions over tge course of his career and blew it on drink and gambling.
