    I used to love snooker both watching and playing it after work.
    I especially loved it when Dennis Taylor beat Steve Davis is what I think was and is the best ever final.
    Since then I think snooker has gone down hill abit...sorry ? 
    I turned on eurosport the other day and was surprised not to be able to recognise any of the players...guess that tells my age now.

    I'm sure there are other members on the forum who like snooker.
    Do you think Barry aherns changes made it worse?
    Best Wishes
