Snooker's Biggest Stars Play At Metrodome

Monday October 7 2013

SNOOKER'S biggest stars came to Barnsley last week - and one had a Chronicle photographer thrown out.

The Metrodome has been staging qualifying heats for a tournament in China.

Among those playing were Ronnie O'Sullivan, Steve Davis and Jimmy White.

O'Sullivan, arguably the game's biggest star, had Chronicle photographer Scott Bairstow thrown out for distracting him by taking a picture in his eyeline.

Opponent Joel Walker said: "It must have been distracting for Ronnie but I thought it was pretty funny."

He is a complete arse hole. A friend of mine asked very politely for his autograph as he was a massive fan, Ronnie's response was f..k off!!! And get him out of my face, taking into consideration my friend is one of nicest people you would wish to meet.

I used to like O'Sullivan when he was in Man about the house, but when he did that Robins nest thing it was utter tripe. Me and the wife have never watched him since.
