Re: Harms criticizes media at Grand Slam

Durrant still has a day job (housing manager or something), although these days he clearly earns more from darts every year, so is pretty much a unique case. One would imagine if he quit his job he could more than compensate through extra exbo work without having to worry about moving over to the P...

Re: Harms criticizes media at Grand Slam

THe GSOD is advertised on the basis that "amateurs get to compete with the top players. Thats how Harms will end up with his biggest payday of the year. In fact the PDC repeatedly says 'stars from both the PDC and BDO systems' without a mention of the word 'amateur' so I'm not sure where you g...

Re: Harms criticizes media at Grand Slam

I don't know how 8 players who so far this year are guaranteed to earn £225,000 without taking exhibitions into account can be called amateur. Harms has every right to question it, particularly when its second meaning is a negative one, ie 'amateurish'. That use of the word certainly has applied to ...

I wouldn't worry, he'll be too busy preparing to head off to the Czech Republic for this weekend's Czech Open. Robbo planning to join him there as well!

Re: RE: Re: Road to BDO World Championships 2019

Why is Hammond only mentioned towards the end of that message? Were her flights never paid for before? As for no players getting a free room, then its just a sign that Potter is putting less into it. He wont have a full hotel as if they arent getting it for free many will just stay elsewhere. Off t...

Re: Montgomery calls for BDO worlds to leave lakeside and tour globe

His alternative really is a pipe dream. Comparing attendances at Lakeside to the Dutch Open - are there any similarities between these events at all? The BDO will not let it go abroad whilst they have control of it, only the WDF can change that.

Re: Road to BDO World Championships 2019

It stands a chance of selling more than last year (just over 70%), which would surprise me to be honest. Bob Potter still able to make a tidy profit anyway!

Well, we have the results of her 3 Challenge Tour weekends to go on. 2 of those sets of results would leave her miles away from the tour card, the third set would give her barely enough Q School points if she were to reach the same rounds there. However, Q School is significantly tougher than a Cha...

Re: Looks like no more Turkish Open!

You must admit it is truly a masterstroke to move this event from the Turkish mainland to a disputed territory you cant get a direct flight to except from a handful of Turkish cities. :DDD: That, and people thinking it is a warzone (which it isnt, by all accounts it is rather lovely) will no doubt ...
