one tour for all, everyone can have as much prize money as they can win, there are no limits

sponsors will not pay good money for womens darts (or football, or snooker) because the standard is, relatively, shite

keeping it totally open eliminates any possible claims of discrimination also
No, no, no. If you hate women's darts it must be because you hate women.
It can't be that it's usually complete shite.
Yeah, it's a bloody stupid argument. I'd be quite happy to see a woman competing well at the top of the PDC. And they have the opportunity to do so, with Q-school. There is no limit on the number of females that can enter Q-school, so where's the problem?

I honestly don't know what Fallon expects. Does she want both? A woman's tour AND the chance to play the men at the Ally Pally? That's hardly fair. There's no market for a woman's tour, and you certainly shouldn't be able to have it both ways.

10 minutes of "we've proved we're as good as the men"? - Its the same interview every time.

No, thanks.
In reality she means "I am as good as some of the men and most of the other ladies are a long way behind"

True though she is the first one to truly earn a tour card. Be intresting to see how many men she can out preform in terms of money won over the two years.

Mason calling for a woman to be put in each group at the GSOD, instead of BDO Men as the BDO Men dont add any commercial value lol

Ticket sales for the o2 show he has a point on the value of the men, and the women have been a successful gimmick, if you want to call it that, so far.

Hope he can get himself together and give it another proper go if that's what he wants.

He always comes across as a decent bloke.

Article about Jonny Clayton and how he still works as a plasterer.

Terrible journalism considering Davidowen told us all we were wrong a week or two ago about that

I see the twit who puked up at Q School posted the Rambling blog win on his FB and IFM chimed in offering details of Gazmong's address etc.

Totally out of order.
Not that he knows the details.
Jesus. I'm defending an idiot who posts made up details about my life every day. WTF?
