Hope he gets better.
Why not just play left handed?

I assume this means he won the WC with a sore elbow.

RONNIE O'SULLIVAN FINED £4,000 BY SNOOKER CHIEFS FOR 'LEWD AND OFFENSIVE GESTURE' AT UK AND WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP​

World champion Ronnie O'Sullivan will be forced to pay £4,000 after being fined by the sport's governing body for bringing the game into disrepute.

...
Seems a little late for this to be resolved. Did he do the "I'm such a wanker" motion? Didn't happen without video. ;)

It was on video, they replayed it multiple times during that tournament.

I am a huge Ronnie fan, he just did the wrong thing this time.
So, no argument really.
Pay the fines, move on.

World Title 8 awaits.

Ronnie O'Sullivan's brutal assessment of snooker tour: 'I don't think anyone has it' :​

"People do it in spells, but to maintain it is the hard thing."

This is the context, and he is not wrong.

Nobody is dominating the game.
A few season with some players winning 3 or more tournaments from much larger circuit these days.

I thought Mark Selby would be the man to dominant at one point, he has some issues now to work through.
John Higgins is still playing, and his hard to beat.
Neil Robertson, has spells again - but can't repeat his 2010 glory.
Judd Trump had a good patch, but has not sustained it.

It's hard to argue with what he is saying really...

Ronnie O'Sullivan ensured the Scottish Open began with a bang as he recorded the second-fastest century in televised snooker history.
O'Sullivan needed just 214 seconds, narrowly falling short of the record held by Tony Drago on 211, as he went on to register a sensational 118 to the delight of the crowd in Edinburgh. :

Ronnie should stick to Snooker because when it comes to Darts He knows next to nothing . Phil Taylor came out of retirement to sign up to the World Seniors Darts tour . Chris Mason accepted invitations to come out of the commentary box to play some events , Glenn Durrant retired from the PDC , it's what happens when you get older , the body or mind can't cope with the tour :

Meanwhile at last weekends PDC Players Championships I looked up the betting for a 9 Darter and 170 finish but thought no , never happens too often in a final so this happened :

Michael van Gerwen calls out Ronnie O'Sullivan after darts vs snooker claim :​

Michael van Gerwen responds to Ronnie O’Sullivan’s claims

"It didn’t take the three-time World Champion long to respond, tweeting: “I’m up for this, me v @ronnie147 at the Palace? @OfficialPDC any takers?”

Shaun Murphy on achieving the 147 break, nine-darter and a hole-in-one as he reopens debate on which is tougher :​

https://www.sportinglife.com/snooke...-he-reopens-debate-on-which-is-tougher/205681

I've never had a 147 but a few maximus on a 6X3 table , i've never had a hole in one at the golf , got close a few times on par 3's with the tee shot to within a foot , I've never had a 9 darter maybe the closest was to hit 7 treble 20's in a row .

My opinion .

A 147 is the hardest , lose position and the chance has gone , a hole in 1 at the golf , well you could tee off and hit a hazard like a tree and the ball bounces onto the green and rolls into the hole . Modern day pro dart players make a 9 darter look easy but they're constantly playing tournaments and practising and once in the flow it's all natural.....
