This constant praising of players for owning up to fouls and looking down on footballers for not doing so isn't logical. In snooker its either a foul or it isn't - in football its always debatable. Also a snooker player only represents himself - if a footballer owns up to a foul he faces the anger of his manager, teammates and 50,000 off drunk, angry fans.

Let's stop this sententious nonsense!

The key word there is ;debateable' because often it is nothing but cynical..........you miss the point...

Snooker doesn't give you the opportunity to be cynical though.

football spur of the moment and hyped up where snooker is methodical and you have time to think

Well I have never seen a snooker player dive or foul another player, err unless this counts.

What happened in that clip Trebor? Drago concedes then wants to play on but mcmanus wont let him retract? The audio is so poor...
Report trebor April 25, 2016 9:49 PM BST
Yeh that's correct, then Drago fouls himself
Report razz April 25, 2016 10:08 PM BST
then why don't footballers admit to a foul when it's obvious?

Someone mentioned in another thread that snooker was now a middle class game at the professional level. I think this issue betrays an undercurrent of class snobbery.

I honestly never noticed snooker people (ie players or commentators) praising themselves for calling fouls and then comparing themsleves to footballers which they have no business doing. Personally I believe cheats are ruining football but that has nothing remotely to do with snooker.

I think snooker players would cheat more if they were not on the box and no they would get scrutinised 4 it

Terry Griffiths did it earlier in the day John. I have heard it a few times now.
I agree Bob.

Ok i dont doubt you at all ccd, i'm not in favour of that at all. You cant cheat in snooker because the camera will catch you out, same in golf to a lesser extent. In rugby all manner of shyte goes on in the scrum where the players assume they can get away with it.

Not true, it's about the culture. People in clubs own up every day of the week, no cameras .
