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

Now the BDO have no credible players the Grand Slam has no interest. At least before Durrant and in the past Waites had realistic chances of going a long way.

Re: BDO close to running out of money

Prize money should have been cut years ago. A cut of 2/3rds would be about right given the status it has now.

Is the 75K a year deal the amount they are paying Jacklin to screw it all up.

Re: One80 LStyle World Masters 2019 - Eurosport TV Matches

Been a good day of darts. Much better than watching the likes of Harms, Mitchell or Robson. Very entertaining.

Re: Should the BDO pick Durrant for the Grand Slam

Pity Waites isnt in it. He might not be the player he used to be but his past record makes him a creditable opponent and he would add interest.

Re: Should the BDO pick Durrant for the Grand Slam

Is there anything in selection criteria that says " the reigning BDO champion so long as he remains a BDO player" if it just says the current champion then he should play

Re: Should the BDO pick Durrant for the Grand Slam

He is the current BDO champion so yes under the rules he must be in.

Re: BDO Worlds (in the small sideroom at the o2 Arena) Ticket Shambles

Yes lots of impatience from non business people. The people who actually buy tickets (not just post on forums) will be following events closely and as long as tickets are available a couple of weeks before will pick them up.
I mean who books to go and see some darts 3 months in advance. Thats bizarre.

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

Watched most of it but its lost something now that Durrant and to some extent the other mains switchers have left. It just seems so low key.

Re: Paul Booth is BDO’s new MC

Des certainly knows how to build the excitement up pending the big announcements. I mean how many people countrywide are now waiting to see what he announces? A masterclass really.

Re: The BDO Annual General Meeting

Des doesnt seem to be the sort of guy who is forced into early announcements just to please darts forums. What people here seem to be saying is he has signed up a new major venue for a tournament costing a fortune with nobody to pay for it. Thats more than risky isnt it? It would be far stupider tha...

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. He is just announcing the news piece by piece. When he announces the sponsors for the earlier tournaments its likely you will know who...

So according to that he has got a 10 year deal for the WC. Impressive indeed and should silence the doubters once and for all.

Re: Players Championship Tour 2019

THe difference is that the BDO dont have 8 creditable players that people want to watch and Durrant adds more interest than anyone else on both sides. A GSOD without Durrant would be a far less entertaining event. Apart from a few on here nobody would care how he qualified. After all he is still the...
