    I googled 'coughing snooker' and there's different links to people being annoyed saying it's silly and attention seeking, why would people try to distract players, and to disturb other people's enjoyment?

    I had to google what that even was. I have never heard of it before!

    I think in general anything that involves an expectation of silence and a big crowd of people is a recipe for disaster. Whether people are being disruptive intentionally or not, there will be disruption. (And now that this is "a thing" people will be judged for inadvertent coughing, farting etc. which of course cannot be helped.)

    Maybe this is the sort of game that should be observed from an operating theater.

    Maybe they should practice in the local pub with a bunch of loud obnoxious people around trying to talk over the jukebox so they learn to not be distracted by it.
