I think he always had a dry sense of humour.

He was just very bloody professional!

8 finals in 9 years.
Have to say, he is one of those that I've grown to like in retirement after absolutely hating him all thru the 80s.

Selby is probably the modern equivalent. Likely too consistent for Ronnie over 33 frames.

btw Here's a tenuous link to fame. I played snooker with John Parrott's brother in the early 80s. Decent player, if not in his brother's league, and capable of beating anyone in Liverpool Student Union even when giving them a healthy start.

Ironically, it was Selby who cracked under the mental pressure.
Ronnie not treating his safety shots with the respect they deserved? WTAF? Done up like a kipper mate. :lol:

My favourite here was at Avoniel near the entrance to the leisure centre: " Tom King is a specky bar steward". In-depth political analysis.

Except it wasn't bar steward. :roll:
