I don't think we've gone to bump limit on a single thread so far this Masters. World Championship final threads can get quite busy and these threads will probably pick up on the weekend when the normies get their time off.
The World Champs are still popular (not spammed to death like football match thread so it's good). The threads for these events are usually way slower and comfier.
If looking at this, it more or less hasn't really changed, ignoring the WC. I started browsing in 2009 so I remember how slow it was back then. I can't find any better stats unfortunately.
There is more prize money, more tournaments, more opportunities to get involved than ever before. There's no reason why any talented young player would struggle to make a living.
Trump and Selby are obviously soft as shit so it's pretty much Bing v Ronnie. Ronnie would lay into Bing's mass of flab and do no damage then Bing would land an elbow on his head and KO him.
Bingham is way too soft of a person and Trump would fall over his feet. Selby would use his immense gluteus maximus to fuel his punches and Ronnie would fight dirty with a roll of quarters or something. It would be bloody murder.
Old /sp/ - the second one - was like ESPN 2 back in the day.
Days on end.
Then we got flags and discovered 90% of the back and forth were Australians. Fuck those were good times.
He's the most naturally gifted sportsman of the generation. When he wants to win there is nobody in the world who has even a fighting chance. I can't think of anyone in any sport who is so obviously the best. As you say though, he doesn't show us this side very much, and to be honest he never has been consistent anyway. We all know about his internal battles and that he probably just doesn't care that much any more.
I took a wrong turn and now I'm here and I'm scared and confused.... I don't see a single burger near.
