They should pretend they're lying in some foreign hospital bed having not bothered to get travel insurance.
Works wonders on the donation front, so I'm told.

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...

"Well, the media is regularly labelling us as amateurs. Maybe our prize money is lower and some of us are working behind their darts career as well, but that doesn’t mean we are amateurs." Erm, yes it does. If you're not making enough money from darts for it to be your main / only source ...

Re: Harms criticizes media at Grand Slam

Whilst I still prefer a simple professional / amateur definition, like Nikki's, I would say if you want to call yourself "semi-professional" you need to show you can regularly achieve at least (let's pick a totally arbitrary number) 20% of your annual income from darts. If you can't do th...

Re: Harms criticizes media at Grand Slam

I think the difference between amateur and semi-professional in this case can be broken down to those who travel around chasing points/cash/rankings, and those who go to the odd weekend open where the get together is more important than winning a few games of darts. You Buzz would be an amateur bec...

Re: Road to BDO World Championships 2019

Perhaps this is a silly question but presumably players in the PDC world championship have to fund their own flights, accommodation, etc?? I think that is the case, but as I saw mentioned elsewhere, the difference there is you can pay your own expenses and don't need a deep run just to have a chanc...

Re: PDC Grand Slam of Darts- 10th-18th November 2018- Wolverhampton

The only one of those "BDO player to get out of the group" odds that is even remotely enticing is Mark McGeeney at 7/4, and I'm far from convinced I'll be having a go at that.

Re: RE: Re: PDC Grand Slam of Darts- 10th-18th November 2018- Wolverhampton

Very good day for Martin Schindler then. Also should see Gilding keep his tour card by remaining in the top 64. Might also qualify for the worlds if Cadby pulls out. I would bet me house on it he is in then. Cadby has pulled out of everything lately so cant see him being in the worlds in the next 6...
