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

Unfortunately you are right. Hard to swallow after many believing things were gonna change for the better. There maybe issues from signings by the previous board, but to not even inform the players is a joke as people need to arrange times of work, hotels, flights, babysitting lol etc. A lot of peop...

This event is in Lincolnshire, so it's a hard pass from me.

Any more news on the "Wristband rumour" from JC's blog?
Seems like zero comments about it around fanatics.

think the thought is that it is fake news. So folks ignored it.

He was on local TV when he rescued the guild hall.

It was a dump. Done it up etc.

think it was a labour of love (he w r entered as a kid).
So maybe a good guy with money, who bit off more than he could chew

Re: Six Nations, 20-23 June 2019, Assen (NL)

Come on folks. I don't want to appear disrespectful but those line ups are not great, are they?

are these international events dropping in value year on year? Are they worth the the finance and effort?

I know I can be a bit naïve at times. But is the fixers post genuine, as in a credible rumour or just made up stuff??

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. Surely venue cannot be a problem. There are loads out there. The sponsors changing their mind? Is that the issue....

Re: 2019 PDC World Cup of Darts

That was a cracking interview with Rod Harrington. PL possibly changing. Forward planning all the time. The P does stand for Professional! I liked the point he made re players complaining. he challenges them because their complaint is just about them and not the bigger picture. But then sometimes, h...

Re: 2020 PDC World Championship- Alexandra Palace- London

Makes me laugh re folks moaning about Wigan. The venue is about 15 -20 mins (?) from a motorway junction. The entire town is surrounded by the M62/M6/M61 is it not, as well as being on the West Coast Mainline and a direct train journey away from the UKs busiest airport outside London? Not that the ...

so only talking to interested sponsors, not saying they were definitely on board.
The venues are on board though, look at the other paragraph in red. Surely he wouldnt have lied.
And he does say new comps with high incentive sponsorship are sorted. Wonder what these are.

I hope you two are not suggesting that Des exaggerated his sponsorship contacts in order to win the Chaimanship of the BDO, totally out of order if you are. Did he say he had the sponsors or was working towards securing sponsorship? And just a thought ,with winmau not sponsoring the masters anymore...

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

I guess we can only judge how Des has done when the news comes out re venue, sponsorship and prize fund. And then see how many tickets are sold. Its not looking good but there is confidence in 'some quarters'. One guy did ask recently on fanatics and got about 3 replies. If the news is bad Des will ...
