She would have been means tested and not been eligible.

It would be better to start a GoFundMe page for players that have the balls to boycott this mess

Parletti made 6k, surely the women can get higher than that figure.

But they didn't deliberately skimp on their insurance, then go begging when the chickens came home to roost.

I suppose they could keep raising the bar and keep the profit like Parletti did.

I have tried for the ladies that is all. I think they deserve better.

The BDO have not been able to add any money to the prize fund for the ladies or Sportotal.

So what should we do.

Boycott the event.

If I walk into work on Monday and my boss tells me he can't afford to pay me the amount we agreed, I'm not about to phone my missus and get her to set up a crowdfunding page.

I appreciate the sentiment, but IMO your energy would be better spent trying to hold those responsible to account for their lies and ineptitude.
