You'll recall it was only a few weeks ago that Sir Rodney Walker, chairman of the WPBSA, roundly rubbished Ronnie O'Sullivan's claims that snooker was in serious trouble.
Today, Walker has told the players that the salaries of the staff and directors of the WPBSA will be reduced by 10%.
So everything's going great, then.
The truth is that the WPBSA is seriously cash strapped and the circuit will not be far from collapse if extra revenue is not found in the next year.
I feel very sorry for the staff of the WPBSA, most of whom have done nothing wrong. These are the footsoldiers, not the people who make the decisions.
Walker's letter says there will also be redundancies.
Presumably he won't be one of them.
