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.
Of course. How they still have supporters after that is beyond me.

I don't have it.

My source does not want to be identified as they don't like to speak out on issues normally. They are worried it may be linked back to them.
So all I can do is report the content of what I get from them via e-mail and PM.
As above.

So the Eurosport payment received covers all future events they are scheduled to show ?... No more lump sums from them ?
It does look they are living from hand to mouth which is never sustainable for too long

I think the prize money being cut to the bone is proof enough they have no large cash reserves to fall back on.
This shouldn’t be a shock to anyone

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

Why would Eurosport be investing in a dead product?

Nowhere near.

People who openly profess a liking for the PDC on here spend all their time and effort slagging off the BDO and bizarrely the players within the BDO.

The same posters say PDC darts is more popular and so more will post about it, but look around, that simply is not true, the activity for the BDO's biggest events is more than the PDC's biggest events.

The fanboys show no interest in the PDC yet are very interested in the BDO. It doesn't make sense does it?

They need to offer more to fight off rival broadcasters like Comedy Central who could be interested.

Isn’t the Eurosport deal null anyway?

the masters and worlds are wdf events and surely they will be taking them back now leaving the bdo with just 1 event out of the promised 3?
