You can see it !

An overhead camera that can project the image of where every ball is on a reset foul shot .

It's a simple idea that takes out many equations .

Bob , patent the idea to Emperor Barry Hearn !
It's a little rough right now, and there is no automatic way to get ball positions into it. It would need to talk to Eagle Eye. It could work but it needs work.

Hi Bob !

It's a little rough right now, and there is no automatic way to get ball positions into it. It would need to talk to Eagle Eye. It could work but it needs work.

With all the prize money in Snooker nowadays it seems so outdated for a match referee to rely on a second referee sitting at a monitor saying left a bit , right a bit , up a bit and down a bit .

There got to be the technology out there somewhere to project the exact ball images down onto the baize for a match referee to reset a more precise ball location .

Whoever invents such a device is onto a winner , ends arguments and save TV companies some time for their coverage schedule .

Adrian Goldstein -Talksports Radio .

Adrian , who also fronts Eurosports Snooker coverage suggested why doesn't the BBC rerun matches of famous football matches but they are showing Mrs Brown's Boys instead .

So there's no Snooker for the foreseeable future so what if we post some memories until things get back to normal ?

Stay safe and well folks and look out for the elders XXXXXX !

Get well soon Willie Thorne !

Well that was fun , not really a 147 but a good insight into what goes through a players mind on a Maximum break .

It doesn't look like Snooker will be returning anytime soon so what about some old match reruns from the vault's of You Tube to tide us over ?

Should be fun ! :wink::grin-square::cool:

Stay safe folks ! :wink::cool:

Mindset of a referee

https://wst.tv/mindset-of-a-referee/

World Snooker Home site offer us a referee insight .

I took the piss out of Barry Hearn once and swore never again but Emperor Barry Hearn is all about 'Bums on seats'

The Corona Virus is bringing Emperor Barry Hearn's Sports World crashing down into free fall .

What will this Corona Virus mean to Emperor Barry Hearn ?

It could very well send his Sports Empire into meltdown but knowing what emperor Barry Hearn is like he will take the Sports to Saudi Arabia , it's all about bums in seats to him !

Mindset of a referee just after the Willie Thorne 147 post , what a laugh !
