WTF was that?

The Jester and Hong Kong Fuey were waiting to be called on by Rob and someone walks past with a load of hot dinners on a trolley.

For the Champions lounge folk? Are players allowed to have food? Wd be nice to see a big hot meal steaming away next to a player.

I like your thinking on this CCD. Players having meals brought out to them, maybe tucking into a full English breakfast during the morning sessions would definitely add something to the event.

Imagine the ructions when Player X goes back to the chair during the early rounds to find that a sausage mysteriously disappeared from his plate while X was compiling a frame-winning break. There's an entire Press Conference in that.

At the semi-finals stage, when each player has more space and privacy available to them there's absolutely no reason why they can't each have a designated dining area on the stage with well-equipped food and sweet trolleys, and champagne in an ice bucket.  They should be able to call a 30 minute 'timeout' per session to consume the goodies while the knowledgable Crucible audience applauds at appropriate moments.

Nice. Or maybe just a nice buffet for both stars to enjoy between shots. Cocktail sausage or cheese football after each contribution?

What I'd like to see is one or both of the finalists actually being allowed to have a barbecue beside their sitting area.

Imagine the fun the audience would have listening to JV and DT doing a running commentary on the miserable failure of player X trying to light the thing, or conversely mucking up the cooking time and ending up with burnt strips pf bacon and sausages which they'd then try and fob off onto the ref.

I think Trump would anger his BK sponsors there!

I like the idea of big Doug Mountjoy dispatching a hearty shepherds pie, wiping gravy off his chin before lumbering up to the table and contentedly belching.

I think at the end of the tournament chairs should be set round the table and all the players and commentators could sit down and enjoy a big family meal together.

Some fantastic opportunities for extra sponsors too. Think of the business from Ginger McCain's Oven Chips and Auntie Bessie Braddock's frozen roast tatties alone.
