Long live the BDO. Long live proper darts. Long live the official body of darts. And long live the BDO die hards who defend the BDO on social media.

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.

So the PDC will bring her back into the darting world to work under their brand with half the counties?

Maybe if she regained control that could lead to a merger between the two organisations.

I think if it is on her terms it could be a possibility.
A good share package perhaps.

The big problem would be who would lead the combined group her or Barry Hearn.

Does he need to 'take over' anything.
Or just do it himself with people who know the system...
Why would they go to Vegas for this meeting?

Pretty convinced that Skewy is on the right track. Have no idea of the ins and outs, but something is definitely afoot, and if any meetings have been arranged they will happen tomorrow at the Mandalay Bay.

Hmmm, they do appear to be planning some sort of new project/organisation that rivals or takesover from BDO. Possibly with a new investor.

Which of course could just be #neweraTwo ..!!

Just what I think, there is no evidence for any if this.

Maybe something is afoot. But surely Wayne and Sue are a busted flush when it comes to any kind of credibility with the pdc? They do not have a track record of success.

I'm not convinced they were there to meet the PDC per se, I think there is 3rd party involved.

Surely the point is that it speaks volumes about how Des has done so far if Sue is confident enough in her own current standing within the game to be considering a comeback.
