He’s not packing in anytime soon. Those comments were made a canny while ago. His performance this afternoon was a mixture of genius and incompetence.Cracking player but loves the attention.
If he wants to quit then quit. Snooker will move on like everything else.
It's semi-valid one I don't know about good. I've met Ronnie and he is very much a knob. All I read in to this statement is that he thinks he is/wants to be thought of as the greatest English/British sportsmen of the current age and there's a bit of the old green-eyed monster coming out, either that or he's a nazi/racist.
