Why is this cheat still allowed to play in this great sport?       And what he did in the past is never brought up.

Betfair to blame unfortunately.They censored all the outrage at the time because it was damaging to them. Then when the notw sting was carried out and Higgins was investigated, Betfair mustn't have come forward with evidence that match-f1xing in exactly the same way as envisaged in the notw sting, may have been done in previous matches.

Betfair to blame ?? Give over.  The only ones to blame are Barry Hearn and world snooker who should have sent him packing from the game.  And what's even worse not one pro or commentator / pundit has the balls to say it how it is

The fact he's looking like beating everyone again is rather ironic too - bet some hoped he turned into a Steven Maguire in results terms, but erm......Blush

No previous matches have ever been investigated and that has to be down to Betfair not providing evidence.

Two words  for Higgins. CHEAT, CHEAT.

I've always been in the cheats should never prosper camp,

but it will tickle me immensely if Higgins wins his 5th world title, further denting O'Sullivan's so-called legacy Laugh

He's the RBS of snooker. Too big to be allowed to fail Grin

In thegiggilo is correct, that's definitely the action of an unpleasantly greedy dude.
But not technically a cheat

That's not someone who loves snooker that's someone that is not to be trusted thus the other accusations fsr more believable,we all know people like that a world final and your thoughts at the interval to cover yourself in a bet to actually have that mentality to do something like that just find unbelievanble for someone who's a multi millionaire..Shocked

that was the same world championship that Stephen Lee was found guilty of conspiring to lose 10 - 4 to Ryan Day

Yes and that along with the unedited tapes is how the verdict was reached on Higgins, unlike the edited version that was seen on TV.

Worth watching the Higgins v Davis premier league game where the betting suggested it would be a draw and poor John 3-2 up could hardly pot a ball in the final frame and even fluffed a few safety shots. Must have been embarrassing for him that Steve was such an average player by then it took him about 10 chances before he finally crossed the line. (No suggestion by the way that Davis was anything other than a player miles past his best.)

A report today says that Higgins has lost his appetite for the game. He will just have to 'swallow' it I guess!!!
