Higgy let himself down, not game

I do not want to disrespect the late Alex Higgins, but I think Ronnie O'Sullivan was wrong to suggest that snooker let the late champion down.

Alex squandered the fortune he made from the game, so why should other players, who were obviously better at looking after their money, give Higgy hand-outs?

The vast majority of the population will never earn a fraction of the money Higgins made - and yet most of them will, God-willing, not die penniless.
