Head Of World Snooker Responds To Ronnie O'Sullivan's 'Disrespectful' 147 Refusal

Head Of World Snooker Responds To Ronnie O'Sullivan's 'Disrespectful' 147 Refusal
By Gavin Cooney

The head of World Snooker Barry Hearn has responded to Ronnie O'Sullivan's refusal of a 147 at the Welsh Open yesterday.

In the event you missed it, O'Sullivan was set for a maximum 147 break in his first round in Cardiff, only to refuse it and break for a 146 in protest at the £10,000 reward.

O'Sullivan's decision caused much controversy among supporters, with many aghast that O'Sullivan rejected money that could have been donated to charity while others complained that it was unfair to deny the crowd the opportunity to witness a maximum break.

From our point of view, we would find Ronnie refusing a maximum break more memorable than his execution of one.

Our favourite reaction, however, came from this Balls.ie reader:

Hearn has taken to twitter to comment on the issue, telling fans that he considers O'Sullivan's decision to be a shame:
