Port City Open will not have BDO points
Will any of the American events carry points?

Re: NDB vote NOT to apply for BDO points-CONFIRMED HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

When i first started playing a darts tour in the 1980's some events were BDO ranked whilst others were WDF ranked , some events were well run others not so well run but the majority were good fun . 30+ years later it looks as we have gone full circle and looking increasingly likely that a WDF tour ...

With the bdo now backtracking does this mean the Dutchopen now has bdo points?
Probably not. Think the ship has already sailed, it’s all linked and as the BDO aren’t inthe WDF there isn’t anything for them to go back to

Re: NDB vote NOT to apply for BDO points-CONFIRMED HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Interesting the the NDB haven't made the decision on all events they have with BDO points ( they must have more). How long will the BDO take to acknowledge this.

Re: BDO tournaments no longer recognised by WDF and BDO relegated to Associate Member

Pity that WDF has less commercial nowse that the BDO. They are the governing body and are trying to act as such but does not change the fact that 6 months ago they were begging the members for 50K to pay for their ICO consultant. Worse still the team appointed to build the event structure have no m...

Re: BDO tournaments no longer recognised by WDF and BDO relegated to Associate Member

Do you think the overseas players will still go to the expense of travelling to The O2 if the prize money money isn’t guaranteed? I have seen at least one player expressing doubt. Apart from maybe getting to the final the prize fund isn't great. After that what are the player now playing for? The B...

Re: BDO tournaments no longer recognised by WDF and BDO relegated to Associate Member

No matter whether the BDO have broken any rules surely the WDF have the right to remove members as they see fit.

What they need to do now though is remove Catalonia as they don't represent a country. Otherwise part of their argument doesn't stand up.

Re: NDB vote NOT to apply for BDO points .....

Wonder when the BDO will start taking events off their calender. All events next year still showing they are carrying ranking points. The World's apparently doesn't carry ranking points anyway.

So when do the PDC step in and make comment on today's revelations. With the link of the GSOD they have every right to as this event has to be thrown into question.

Re: WDF has chucked out the BDO .......

boom. you heard it all here on TSOD first folks Good work. Looks more a removal of full membership to associate, though. Interesting because in the letter they also state the BDO shouldn't be a full member because they don't represent a Nation? So have they just removed something they didn't\not su...

Re: BDO Cash Grab!

They have to backtrack, at least delay it until October, and even then a lot of orgs will tell them to do one. But can they financially leave it till October? I think not. Two more majors have to be planned and played by then. The Worlds would have to planned and in place. With all the rumours and ...

Re: BDO Cash Grab!

Interesting that this decision was made by the BDO board of directors. First one isn't it :grin:

I wonder why!
Normally it's just Des that announced that he has done it all.

Re: BDO Cash Grab!

A good example will be the Dutch Open. NDB will be getting an invoice for about £1100 in January. They are usually the kind of organisation that will put out a quick reaction to something like this. So would expect them to let people know soon if they are carrying BDO ranking points or not. I would...

Re: BDO Cash Grab!

Dutch open will be about £10k as a rough guess with 5% paid and £2 from every entry. I have said for years countries should pay to have BDO points, It makes business sense to me, But they have never done this. Making the £2 levy is the BDO's way of trying to compete with the WDF IMO as I feel there...

Re: PDC 2020 Asian Tour

Nice to see some further growth. Wonder if they will try and go to India. Hong Kong and Malaysia must be other targets as both previously held events. Going to Japan or Philippines for a 2nd weekend would be the worst idea though. Why such a bad idea? I thought Japanese darts is on the up. Should h...
