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

Eurosport though don’t care about no crowd watching at the venue. Most of the snooker tournaments they screen from China have no one there. The promoters price the tickets sky high so the locals can’t afford to go. Is all about the massive TV audience in China. Those promoters are well prepared wit...

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

A whole session of Ladies games on a Friday afternoon may be worth doing as an experiment, to see if there is a market for it. Saying that, people happily bought tickets for this before knowing the schedule. When you say "swap it", you want them to play the mens L16 before the mens L32? A novel ide...

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

Eurosport know that not many people will watch the ladies so have shifted it on when football, cricket & rugby will be on Personally I’d swap it and have as much of the ladies on the Friday afternoon. It’s just poor planning. the ladies is secondary, playing ladies after every other men’s games is ...

Re: The BDO Annual General Meeting

There is no sponsor that YOU know about. Des isnt an idiot and he clearly wouldnt have signed up to such an expensive contract if he didnt have people to pay for it.

Re: The BDO Annual General Meeting

Still find it odd that when there is any problem in the bdo it’s sportotals fault as they have a contract stating they must make all commercial deals for the bdo and will take the bdo to court if they try break it again. But then when things are announced that are good news its Des that’s done it al...

Re: Road to The O2 Indigo (BDO Worlds 2020)

Disney on ice at the same time is going to be an interesting cross of families and darts players chugging pint after pint.

If I’m honest I’m more likely to come here than lakeside

Based on some comments on Facebook a month or 2 ago I think Wayne worked with des/sportotal to get this deal, hence the need to push it

Re: One80 LStyle World Masters (Oct 25th -27th) Venue Circus Tavern

Reading the amount of people on Facebook saying they won’t be nothing makes me think that the reason the seeds are back at round 1 is because so many of them said they weren’t bothering to play anyway. Like tony says this could be the worst attended masters ever. And from a purely selfish point of v...

Re: Mardle on the BDO and Jacklin

Watched that yesterday. It was a good interview overall. Mardle thinking at1st Des the right man but now not so sure. makes it clear a healthy bdo is good for darts but he says that if the bdo folded darts itself would be in trouble. I don't think so. Surely if that happened opens , super league, c...

Re: Dundas Resigns as BDO Referee

Whilst I don't know everything, it seems to me that some bad decisions have been made which are restricting the move forward for the BDO, from what I am led to believe these contracts are now putting in jeopardy the future of the company, if this is the case then, I would dissolve the company and s...

It's feckin nearer Preston than Blackburn. Accomodation Premier Inn Blackburn 7 min walk from venue Premier Inn Darwen. 40 minute walk with a few pubs on the way, also loads of buses and a taxi should only be 3.00 Fernhurst, Ewood. 25 min walk. Still nothing in the local paper or on Radio Lancashir...

Re: Ashowdown and out

Full time spotting/MCing/calling for the PDC I would surmise, like when Georgie Noble or Huw Ware switched. It's not just the best players that switch.
