Re: PDC Grand Slam of Darts- 9th-17th November 2019- Wolverhampton

Will the BDO still be in financial existence this time next year to even be in the equation of having choice of whom they send ? Regardless; I do not see Barry Hearn keeping this format as it currently exists given what we have seen this year. Does he continue with the BDO v PDC novelty which is be...

Re: PDC Grand Slam of Darts- 9th-17th November 2019- Wolverhampton

My thinking is not meant as a personal criticism of the players per say, but an observation that the representation of players currently playing within the BDO system is now detrimental to the event and this needs addressed before next year. Just needs a chnage of mentality - Everyone (mainly the B...

Re: BDO Worlds Tickets 2020 "Explosion" and Extortion Watch

Apology accepted. That's very gracious of you my friend, if only I had realised the plan was a major marketing fail, followed by a complete reversal in policy in the hope loyal customers would stampede back to Lakeside next year. Perhaps Coke would be interested in a sponsorship since that is the m...

Re: BDO Worlds Tickets 2020 "Explosion" and Extortion Watch

Coke changing its recipe, which of course, led to increased sales of Coke Classic when they brought it back. Unfathomable stupidity indeed. Ah right. Sorry - I didn't realise the master plan was to take this away from Lakeside before returning in glory with even greater success. I must have missed ...

Re: BDO Worlds Tickets 2020 "Explosion" and Extortion Watch

I haven't really commented before but the decision to take this away from the Lakeside was unfathomable stupidy. It was the one thing it had going for it. Apart from the money Potter put up, it had a claim on being the historic and spiritual home of world championship darts. It had a loyal fanbase w...

Re: PDC Grand Slam of Darts- 9th-17th November 2019- Wolverhampton

The Grand Slam of darts is finished if this continues. The BDO was able to send Hankey, Waites, Anderson, Chisnall, Fitton, Whitlock, Webster, O'Shea, Kist, Adams.... this is now beyond embarrassing. The worst ever.

Re: Chaos and disaster-2019 One80 LStyle World Masters (Oct 25-27) Venue-Circus Tavern

Seems like a pretty thankless task to me; not sure why Des - or anyone else for that matter - would want to do it. Don't know why they won't go to Hearn and come up with something. Incidentally I find it very hard to believe the PDC picked Wayne Warren and Richard Veenstra for the Grand Slam. I'm g...

Re: PDC Grand Slam of Darts- 9th-17th November 2019- Wolverhampton

The PDC should set the criteria - it's their event. I don't know why they leave it up to the BDO which has proven time and again it couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery. It's simple - current world champion and runner up, current world master and runner up, Women's champion, youth champion and ...

Re: Tickets for the BDO Worlds in the small sideroom at the o2 Arena

In my experience i definitely cant see it being anything to do with the venue why the tickets aren’t on sale yet, That would be a promoter / organiser issue. You need to ask Des & Sportotal why. Des told everyone at the AGM he had it sorted that was 8 weeks ago. I know one thing I wouldn’t want any...

Re: Glen Durrant

Met him a few times at Lakeside,top bloke. The vile abuse he gets on Twitter is disgraceful. No wonder so much players leave social media. He is a smashing guy and he goes get a lot of stick for no good reason. That tit with the knob of the week blog is always being nasty about him. God knows why. ...

Ed can use all the stats he likes but it is clear the boards are not up to scratch. And, as he acknowledges in all fairness, some players suffer more than others.
