Talk about killing the game singlehandedly, what a boring player he is.
The people who run the game must be going crazy watching this shiite.

Win or lose Ding plays a good brand of snooker, the other guy is just a strangler and where on earth did he get the jester from leicester title, as he has the charisma of a turnip and as boring as ditch water.

Total admiration for Selby; he was not born with the talent of Jimmy White, Trump or a few others but look at his results compared to theirs. I guess you guys prefer 20/20 to test match cricket too? This is test match snooker, the biggest test Ding has ever had or will ever have. I think he stood up pretty well to it so far but what can he find this afternoon? Epic stuff and enjoying every minute of it.

posters a bit hard on Selby here - he's not the most exciting but many worse than him. His main strength is his ability to hold concentration over these long matches. Ding is more talented but his mind goes walkabout too often.

Selby is actually quite an attacking player but for his inconsistent cue ball control he would be making more frame winning clearances in one go.
So he reverts to his mastery of the safety game.

So what? True fans of snooker should never fans should be all embracing for Selby's craftsmanship of the game.
Hendry, Jimmy, Ronnie just want a potting fest, they should show the respect that Steve Davis shows Selby.

I couldn't agree more Zen. Before the Hendry era, this is how the top players played, and it's fabulous to watch. Players then didn't score the century breaks of today, but their all-round craft made their opponents work so hard for their chances. You see Selby winning playing like this (and let's be honest he can play better) and it should remind those of the opinion that today's standard is so much better than before, that it isn't - it's merely the way the game has evolved. Absolutely no-one will convinvce me that S.Davis wouldn't win multiple World Championships in this era.

Davis would win just as much in this era - as would Hendry, the best ever to play the game. Selby is very much like Davis - but not as good.

I see where the likes of jimmy and ronnie are coming from. After all, lots of us wouldn't be snooker fans now if it hadn't been for alex and the explosive way he played. But snooker has always been a game of contrasts, that was the key ingredient that made it so great in the 80s, and watching higgins and white potting from every angle would have quickly become boring if there'd been no other standard to measure it against. It's disappointing that Ronnie, who knows and understands his snooker history, can't appreciate this. He should be focussing his ire on the likes of Murphy and Trump, and increasingly maybe even himself, for continually coming up short where it really matters.

The argument is  while it may be effective, it certainly isnt pretty. Looking at the bigger picture, this final is doing plenty of damage to the game

the hundreds of millions that are watching in china because of ding will outweigh the people that turn it off because they find selby boring
