Isle of Man date error

Isle of Man statement from Tommy Thompson.. BDO.. EDO.. makes no difference on the cock up front! Special and important announcement England Darts has to clarify that the Isle of Man Open 2020 will be held in Douglas at the Villa Marina between Thursday 12th March to Sunday 15th March inclusive. Thi...

Just saw it was a mistake.. Mistake my arse.. They've been forced to backtrack because they promised the same payout.. Paula been on the war path?.. More money down the drain.. How embarrassing

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

The company who did the Worlds were OK actually.. The coverage was decent..this whole event is going to cost a fortune though.. Venue hire.. Prize money.. Running costs.. No proper sponsor... Like Des said it shouldn't be happening this year..but I cannot understand him saying if it was down to him ...

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

Oh, a titbit of information reaches me that Ricgard Ashowdown is no longer the MC. True or not, I have no idea. Putting it out there for discussion. Why he would turn down easy money by trying to whip 50 people up into a frenzy every night.... PDC beckoning? He works for the PDC anyway, unless Mcdo...

What would be the chances of Winmau becoming the board of the PDC ?.... Or are Unicorn as shareholders totally irreplaceable at any cost ?

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

Has it taken 6 years to work that out :) 6 years ago people were saying the BDO was shite but those days seem like great days in comparison! I suppose it was Barney going that started the big slide.. Back when they had Lakeside and the Winmau on BBC.. They had the IDL and WDT in Holland.. They had ...

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

Hamilton would t give a monkeys about the WDT if he'd got a Tour Card.. Ditto for the likes of Jim Williams etc.. However as it stands this is one of THE major events for the BDO players to aim for and at least get some coverage on TV and some half decent prize money Even if its announced today that...

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

It's not easy getting TV and sponsorship and zDes has found out..... I read on the BBC website that the Women's Super League in football receive no money from BBC and BT and give away the rights with the broadcasters just paying for broadcasting costs... So there's no reason that the BDO will be rec...

Looks like this could be the most open Matchplay in years. Draw Tuesday at 3.30pm live on Sky Sports News.

For me Aspinall, Durrant, Hughes and De Zwaan the unseeded players to be avoided.
Aspinall is seeded.

Aspinall is really good to watch.. and some talent... Pity we'll have to suffer Barney's face in some of these rather than a player on the up who really wants it..

It's easy this running the BDO lark.. anything goes wrong just throw in the word Sportotal.. not my fault guvnor honest.. Sportotal and its contract whatever it may be was around way before Des took over. He must have known about it way before he took over and way before he started spouting about ma...

It's just a couple of days off getting a nomination for this year's British Comedy Awards now... and I believe the BDO are on the shortlist for Lifetime Achievement at those same awards.

Every post Paul now writes harks on about the 7 year Sportotal contract meaning no info can ever be given.. Well if such a contract exists then Des will have been well aware of it and surely should have looked into that before he took over and started saying he had plush venues and sponsors all sort...

You have to think it can only be legal issues with various things signed by the old board and they cannot publicly blame anybody for ongoing legal reasons... Not sure why they cannot publicly say legal issues are delaying things without blaming anybody publicly. As it stands now its a joke.. and wil...
