Whitlock would have reason to feel very hard done by if he doesn't get in
You never know though with Mr Hearn

That is a truly awful idea! The main reason being if a Premier League players draws or wins against a 'contender' they win points for the Premier League. So how did they decide who would play who? Clearly they are all at different standards so some players have much easier games than others. Not to be too harsh on Steve Lennon but you would have to be happy playing him rather than Gary Anderson!

And to add insult to injury, Whitlock is not even one of the 'contenders'!

As if the premier league wasn't bad enough, that is a shocker of a decision.

That's bizarre
Suppose it makes you realise it is just a travelling exhibition
And ya, Whitlock will feel completely screwed

A whole new level of stupidness. Anything to get Max Hopp in I suppose. Whitlock,lewis an chizzy must be absolutely fuming unless they turned it down at such short notice.

The Premier League needed shaking up IMO but not like this last minute decision.

But in this case they should've gone the whole hog and allowed wins by the contenders to count in the league table, giving them a chance to get beyond judgment night; rather than only allowing points picked up against them to count.
