Re: Sick, Pathetic, Greedy Fixing Will Never Go Away- Amazing Snooker Scandal

I don't understand snooker at all, but sometimes I watch it - waiting for tennis on Eurosport to start, LOL. So, I actually know who Higgins is.

Ouch. Just - ouch.

Why does he need 300,000 Euro? Doesn't he make enough money as it is?

How could he ruin his legacy by doing something like this? He earns enough money. What a blow to the sport to have one of its greatest players ever involved in something like this.

Not to mention a board member... You'd think he has enough money, especially since it didn't seem like there would have been some threats made to the family (as I think the case with Davydenko might have been).

Though at its heart, match fixing is about money laundering.

As someone who's liked Higgins I'm disappointed. I've always enjoyed listening to his Scottish accent, not to mention his great play.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Lovely.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Sick, Pathetic, Greedy Fixing Will Never Go Away- Amazing Snooker Scandal

don't know what's more disturbing, the fact that Higgins appears willing to take the cash or the disgusting tactics used by this absolute rag of a newspaper.

Would this stand up in the Court of Arbitration for Sport if he was banned? Entrapment by scummy journalists can't be legally watertight...

Quote:
John Higgins has insisted he would never fix a snooker match and declared his conscience was "100% clear" following the newspaper allegations that he agreed to throw frames in return for money.

Commenting for the first time since the allegations emerged in the News of the World, 34-year-old Higgins claimed he only said he would participate in the deal so he could get out of a potentially threatening situation.

He said in a statement read out on BBC2 prior to the World Championship final: "Can I say I have never been involved in any form of snooker match-fixing. In my 18 years playing professional snooker I have never deliberately missed a shot never mind intentionally lost a frame or a match."

He explained: "Those who know me are aware of my love for snooker and that I would never do anything to damage the integrity of the sport I love. My conscience is 100% clear."

Higgins, the sport's new world number one, was suspended by the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association, and his manager Pat Mooney resigned from the WPBSA board.

Both men were secretly videoed by an undercover reporter who was posing as a businessman at a meeting which the News of the World say took place in the days following Higgins' World Championship second-round defeat to Steve Davis.

"In all honesty I became very worried at the way the conversation developed in Kiev," Higgins said in his statement.

"When it was suggested that I throw frames in return for large sums of money, I was really spooked, I just wanted to get out of the hotel and onto the plane home.

"I didn't know if this was the Russian mafia or who we were dealing with. At that stage I felt the best course of action was just to play along with these guys and get out of Russia."
