I'm quick-failing this article for numerous instances of non-neutral language. For example:
- "Four months later, Hunter caused a major sensation at the UK Championship by beating world number six Alan McManus 9–4 in the first round".
- "at the age of just 17 and three months"
- "Hunter's achievements earned him high accolades throughout the game" (also unsourced)
- "it was to be the start of a great love affair that he would have with Wembley" (also unsourced)
- "where he defeated no fewer than seven players to lift the title "
- "he announced his arrival as a genuine force at the top of the professional game"
- "but he saved his best form for the 2001 Masters."
- "on his way to a famous 10–9 victory,"
- "but it did not get any less exciting along the way. After a relatively straight-forward 6–3 victory at the round of 16 stage over Stephen Lee, Hunter triumphed in final frame shoot-outs against Peter Ebdon in the quarter-finals, Alan McManus in the semi-finals and most memorably coming from 0–5 down to beat Mark Williams 10–9 in the final"
- "It represented a fantastic start to the year for Hunter,"
- "After his best ever season, in which he had been a contender in virtually every tournament he played, it was time for the Yorkshireman to perform in the biggest tournament of all, and that he most certainly did."
I could go on, but the point is made.
- Other problems
These are not quick-fail issues, but might help for a future submission.
- "As well Hunter compiled 114 competitive century breaks [...]" - not grammatically correct
- "In March 2005 Hunter was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumours, he died from the disease in 2006[...]" not grammatically correct
- Early life
- "By the age of 12 had become an outstanding junior talent." not grammatical, and "outstanding junior talent" is a direct quotation from the source so should either be acknowledged as such or reworded.
- "He has won many junior tournaments" - wrong tense
- Early career
- "the youngster from Leeds made his debut among the professionals" / "before bowing out" - not encyclopaedic tone
- "before he overcame the John Higgins" - not grammatically correct
- Masters champion
- "knocking in four centuries in six frames" - not encyclopaedic tone
I could go on, but again, the point is I hope made.
The "death and legacy" and "personal life" sections have too many one-sentence paragraphs, which ought to be merged together, moved elsewhere, or expanded.
