To Willie Thorn
I was watching the Murphy v Robertson semi-final while Mr. Thorn was commentating. I got so fed-up with Mr. Thorn’s inability to keep his mouth shut, his colleague, Ken Docherty couldn’t get a word in. In the end, I switched the commentary off!
Please,please please ask Mr Thorn to learn that he does not have to fill silent gaps in the commentary with his verbal diarrhea. Virgo is much the same as Thorn. They really should take a leaf out of Dennis Taylor’s commentary style and skill with the computer. – Far superior!

I agree– The general public do need little breaks of breathing space from the commentary. When all said and done majority have basic knowledge anyway.

Mr Robertson, you are quoted as saying you would like to change places with someone who is poor.
When are you going to do that?
About a month ago I sent an e-mail about my idea to make snooker a
much better and honest game to the WPBSA ,I din not recieve a reply,so I have
decided to send this open letter to
various media institutions and will give the first one to react the
exclusive rights to my idea.I am fully confident that it”s going to
blow the roof off snooker and only in a positive way.
My name is Michael Mc Auliffe I was born on the 23rd of June 1958 in
Cork city in Ireland, From a very early age I fell in love with the
game of snooker.I must have seen every game
since it was first broad casted on the BBC. Of course my heroes were
Jimmy White and the famous Alex (hurricane ) Higgens.I remember the
first time Mr Barry Hearn entered the
arena to congratulate Steve Davis on his first world title. Who s this
guy I said to myself,and from that moment I have followed his
involvement as a sports promoter for the likes of
darts , golf , and The Matchroom snooker players.When I heard that Mr
Hearn was to be the new chairman of snooker I was delighted,because
the game I love would be in good hands.
The reason for my enthusiasm about Mr Barry Hearn goes back to the
eighties in Holland where incidentally I have been living for the last
thirty years. I was involved in snooker as a
player and as an advocate to get the two organisations in Holland to
affiliate with the WPBSA but to no avail.I enjoyed the sport and
played it to quiet a high standard, ( armature champion 1984 &1985).
I lost interest in the sport because of the lack of motivation shown
in Holland at the time. Well thanks to Mr Barry Hearn the situation
has changed and some old friends are crawling out of the woodwork
to play on the green Baez once again.The new ranking system to my
understanding gives everybody the chance to pursue his or her dreams
and enjoy playing this wonderful game.Now ! I have come up
with such a simple but extremely effective way of bringing a huge
change ( the rules do not change) into the television and
entertainment side of the game. I am like the guy that walked into the
company and said CAN it.This idea of mine will also enhance the
integrity of the sport and I know as a player will give peace of mind.
Are you intrested..
PS please be.
Kind regards Michael J Mc Auliffe
Did you known that Willie Thorne also commentates on Sky Sports.
Please add Willie Thorne to the list of Sky Sports Commentary Team
What is the point of a snooker commentator? I wish they would all shut up. All they tell us is what the player is going to do next. If they think they are so good, why aren’t they playing in the tournament. Pity there isn’t a channel where all you hear is the sound of balls hitting each other. That’s all the audience hears!
I wish John Virgo would stop predicting what players need to do next to win the frame/game. It’s a sure commentators’ curse!!
