No they havent. They have been paid as per the letter 4 weeks ago.
Yeah contract probably not the best word to use.

They got paid what was on that anyway

It was only up for about 5 minutes and then deleted Ginge - Looking at the grammar I thought it was an official BDO statement

Another person involved in darts who can barely speak their mother tongue. I know she's Welsh but that's no excuse.

They are entitled to be annoyed. If Giovanna doesnt like the actions of her employer (?) she knows what she can do about it.

Welsh is certainly not vowel language.

Chambers Media have their work cut out

Not with the usual trolling posts either, but players and employees/board members playing it all out over social media
They will never learn

I can't understand why they cannot pay all players on the same day.. Its hardly a cast of thousands... What an amateur hour it all remains... and fancy dart players who have not been paid and not sure how much and when they will receive anything being a bit annoyed..
Even the eventual issuing of the payments is a farce..

This supposed 150k from Eurosport that's enabled the payments... Is that all from Eurosport or is there more to come from other events?... It all looks very dodgy going forward..

I still ask where the ticket income has vanished to. Addicks worked that out to easily be the same amount again.

Eurosport actually paid £150k for that product?

Would that be stashed to fund the WDT ?.... or maybe a 10th bedroom for Des's villa ?

If they don't pay these players Des and the rest of the board should be barred from any and every darts event and barred from organising any future events. The players turned up and played in good faith, that faith needs to be repaid in cold hard cash.
Already beyond this stage Nick. They should’ve been banned after the episode at the World Masters.

That might be for all 9 televised comps.

Hearing now that the e-mail that went out with a "payout" of 282K was for all associated costs including prize money.

Due to ambiguous wording my source (and others reporting the same thing) have assumed that that figure was purely prize money.

I assume the other overheads are the stage backdrop, the production company (stop laughing, Babcock), the stage officials, venue set-up, Des and Paula's food, drink and accommodation and Toplad's bar bill.
