With this gone will the NDB now want to partner with the PDC
And to think the William's have chatting to the PDC this week. Something is afoot I tells thee
They’ve been at a venue of a PDC event at a location they have been known to go to. Am sure the PDC are not talking to them over the current affairs of BDO/WDF darts.
Why so sure ?
What do they bring to the table that the PDC need? Absolutely nothing.
Nothing the PDC 'need' no. Intriguing really
. I think anyway.

Maybe Hearn will use the BDO's temporary issues to launch an opportunistic takeover bid.

Does he need to 'take over' anything.
Or just do it himself with people who know the system...

Would love to see a breakdown of the ‘500k’ cause the prize money was always piss poor for this event. €5k to winner.

Couldn't the BDO have stepped in and saved the event? They saved small Spanish event last year when that was going under


Make your mind up.

Oche, think about it ffs. They paid €35k out. Its a three day event. In a hotel. On a tiny channel.

How do you think it costs half a million to run? Do you believe everything you are told?

I think someone added a 0 to the actual cost.

Some folks clearly think nick Kenny wrong with his opinion as to why it is cancelled. Wonder if he will retract his statement.

Hearn doesn't want a takeover now, he just wants it to drop "Professional" from its World Championships name so it's showing it's not trying to compete, and then it might throw a few quid the BDO's way to help support it.
