Doesn't this prove that there is a market for non-PDC darts?

Why would Eurosport be investing in a dead product?
Eurosport invest (and I use the term loosely as I've heard they pay nothing-very little for pretty much every sport they cover) in a load of crap. They've got to fill their channels with something. Put the channel on at aany random time and very rarely will you find anything worth watching.
Cycling coverage is excellent.
Apart from Sean Kelly's appalling punditry.
Aye, I turn on the Dutch comms these days. Female commentator part of the duo which would probably annoy you. :)

Is his punditry appalling?

I'll be honest, I can't understand a word the bloke says.

Kelly would drive rats. He is bloody awful to listen to as is Rob Hatch. You can't understand what Kelly is saying and Hatch interrupts fellow commentators when he feels the need to take over the comms.

The best one is Carlton Kirby. Very amusing. Magnus Backstedt is good former cycling pro on comms.

even better today on 601, JV with Terry, commentating on ronnie moaning about the draft (he's been watching darts) and about to get turned over by the sheriff of pottingham

Wouldnt you expect a media company to be quite active on social media channels?

Two Tweets since the 16th September, nothing at all since the 7th December.

Last thing they did on FB was change the profile picture...over 6 months ago.

Haha perfect fit for the BDO

Yes. You would still expect more than two Tweets and FB updates in the last 5 months from such a company though. And they had no qualms with plugging the British Demolition Awards on them last year.

You seem a bit uptight about this, Timmy. Whats your interest here then?

Not uptight at all, sweetheart. Just passing along a message.
