Re: 6th BDO World Darts Trophy 30 Aug - 1 Sep

Re: 6th BDO World Darts Trophy 30 Aug - 1 Sep

As was predicted on here within hours of the Sportotal announcement back in the day, this deal was always about Holland recouping some of the losses of BDO Events. Sue had to sign otherwise I suspect they would have sued the BDO for their losses, or at the very least come up with some significant d...

Bet Sid had 6 shops. He shut 3 and sold 3 in Feb this year. He lost £2m on them by the end of 2017 it was reported and they were running at a loss when they shut down. Yet another rich lucky property developer who got rich on property values and when they came to actually try run a business.... well...

It would be ironic if Des has been led down the garden path by someone who keeps promising that everything will be fine... in a week or two....just crossing the t's...... just some last minute glitches......these things in business always take time....got it all sorted just need a box ticked.....

Re: England Open 14-16 June, Selsey

Nothing surprises me any more. And that's on both counts. The World Masters at Selsey? It would be signalling the end of the BDO , might as well just let the EDO and other orgs run it all and just have the BDO run the BICC. In other words sack off BDO enterprises, give their money to BICC to try and...

Re: 6th BDO World Darts Trophy 30 Aug - 1 Sep

10 weeks Friday. Not one ticket sold. Will Des yoghurt another £100k of BDO money to keep it and save face ala Williams, on or take the brave decision to cancel..... Or wait another few weeks to see if he can bag a huge sponsor from no where to pay for it.... (and will that sponsor be interested in ...

Re: 6th BDO World Darts Trophy 30 Aug - 1 Sep

I think most realise (certainly on here) the number of problems that Des has when he took over. Problem is I don’t think he realised. You have to think he had plans of going to Preston. spot on. The problem were/are obvious. They cant compete wit hPDC and try to run vanity comps like the World Dart...

Awful format. So easy to improve it. Just doesn't make any sense how they do it, none at all. You must guarantee at least some pairs on every game.
