Jim Williams showing here that he is the best player in the BDO at present and should easily be the favourite at the 02 in January in my opinion.

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

When the Grand Slam first started it had Gary Anderson coming in as BDO player on the back of his WDT and IDL wins against PDC players.... The event had genuine needle and genuine rivalry.. The BDO representation today is so weak in comparison to years gone by that it does take a lot of shine off th...

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

Lisa plays okay and the call for equal prize fund in the bdo, for the ladies, is raised on fanatics again! Will be equal soon enough. But men's brought down to the ladies payscale. It is equal at ally pally and the slam. Rightly so. No reason a woman couldn't win any PDC event if good enough.True e...

Re: PDC World Championship- 13th December 2019- 1st January 2020 Alexandra Palace- London

I see the PDC Worlds will be completely cashless this year as a deal has been signed with Weezevent.. I'm not sure about this.. Cashless at major events is the way to go for sure.. tapping your phone or card is quicker and easier.. Many bars do it... But I think you have to have a pre paid Weezevent...

Re: BDO Worlds Tickets 2020 "Explosion" and Extortion Watch

It's a real niche event now.. plenty of niche events out there but surely none with a 100k first prize.. Without big sponsorship coming in the BDO cannot continue at this level offering these prize funds with those ticket sales.. Its very worrying times.. Of course there will be no proper advertisin...

Re: Hungarian Open (1st-3rd November 2019)

Haha I added the Des one, I thought in the current climate it would have been construed as a joke, which it has been. I added no others. To be fair adding the name of Des Jacklin after the Masters fiasco is funny and even Fanatics should smile at that... Can't be doing with other names being added ...

It is an awful time to try and start to sell tickets with the run up to Christmas.. December even worse...

Re: BDO close to running out of money

If they don't get proper sponsorship then to stage the event with that prize fund would be ridiculous and suicidal.. Of course it will be on.. Des says he isn't getting involved in the sponsorship personally.. Funny how he can always wash his hands over things that may go wrong..and didn't he say wh...

Cue people on fanatics screaming that prize money should go up, not down. they never say were the money should come from just call for an increase. Even at times folks asking for ladies payout to be equal with men (£100,000!). But am I right in thinking ladies has gone up by 54%? short term game if...

Re: BDO close to running out of money

I wouldn't have thought there were any sports at all with the live fan base numbers of the BDO and very few meaningful sponsors that would offer anything near 100k for a prize, let alone the rest of the payout... Its a ridiculous amount to sustain and without sponsorship of note truly impossible..

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. Exactly 100k is far too much It was only ever put to 100k to match the PDC at the time.. It was a ridiculous decision back then which looks even more ridiculous now.. Its an enormous burden...
