That barrier has gone already, 100% so if lakeside is only streamed. That's just not a Worlds anymore.Zapp Brannigan wrote:oche balboa wrote:Zapp Brannigan wrote:oche balboa wrote:Brett just wants the bdo to vanish
Just rang Lakeside asking about Tickets
Was told to expect some positive news within the next few days, BDO have messed around for far too long. It was a bloke I spoke too
At this point yes but only because we are so close to a unified darts again
If the bdo just gave up on lakeside instead of the embarrassment they are doing now we would be there.
Why does 2 world Championships bother you
I think it creates confusion in the sport and its the last barrier that the game has to sort out with the general public, 25 years on and when we talk about darts and world champions the media has to still go on a tangent and explain there is 2 world championships because of the split ect ect ect.
The problem is the divide is pretty much over bar the 2 world championships, darts could be unified in 12-18 months if the BDO just gave up that one tournament. I know its hard for some people as lakeside and the BDO worlds has the history, but at this point its like the japanese soldiers that were still fighting on years after Japan had surrendered.
Yes, there are 3 or 4 players who could do ok in the pdc - and plenty with potential, but the latter will end up in the pdc and the former ones, waites , Mitchell and Durrant will become a foot note in the history of darts.
There is only one World champion now.
