It’s really time to chill, BBN.
Things have gotten so out of control that if you call John Higgins’ roofing business, you will be greeted by the FBI.
After hearing reports that this was the case, I tried the number myself to confirm. (Because I’m a reporter or whatever, allegedly.) When I did, the voice on the other line said, “Federal Bureau of Investigation” — not the usual phone introduction from Higgins’ roofing business.
Of course, this could be Higgins’ secretary pretending to be the FBI. Either way, someone, legit or not, claims to be with the Bureau.
We all know Higgins called a crap first half and he was a part of four UK tournament exits, but the threats against him and his business are way out of line.
It is fair game to make fun of his officiating, because he sucked; however, there is no reason why the FBI should be involved, if it indeed is.
