I notice that Mardle's tweet about negativity hurting the BDO was liked by over 100 people. I expect you think they are all trolls as well, right?

Just look at the thread title. It's just encouraging people to mock the entire event. It's a shame, because the BDO need our support now more than ever. By all means criticise them when it is constructive, but also give them credit where it is due and don't nitpick everything for the sake of it.

It sounds like ticket sales for this weekend are better than expected. Why not celebrate that? Why concentrate on all of the negatives all the time? I hope the trolling and mickey taking stops a bit once the event begins. It isn't helping and some of you come across as haters to be honest.

Well, yes. Being as that is less than 0.1% of his 111K followers, it's clearly not a popular point of view.

But thanks for your in depth and penetrating analysis, Routson.

if the BDO were not so inept at everything they do, then people would not be so negative. They are the ones that failed to advertise their tournaments, so blaming others for low ticket sales is embarrassing.
I suppose the WDF debacle and the draw rigging was the fault of people tweeting negativity too

Yeah, OK, I'll bite. It's exactly this type of thinking that Sue and Des have relied on throughout their respective tenures.

The BDO need to be in a state where the basics are covered (performing a fair draw), the fundamentals are in place (the promised sponsors materialise), the decision making is sound (not announced apparently on the hoof from a FB account to whom a BDO player has access) and some form of strategy is clear defined, articulated and starts to be implemented. None of these things should be beyond the grasp of "a successful businessman", yet none of them appear to being put in place and instead any note of dissent is met by a level of windmilling that even the entire nation of the Dutch would struggle to match.

You're wasting your time with this lot, the majority are immature trolls. The whole purpose of this forum is to criticise the BDO whether it's warranted or not. It's why they exist.

There's a thread on some page where people are saying Bob Potter should have put this on the big screen at Lakeside and charged a couple of quid to get in.. They reckon he'd have got loads turning up and sold loads of beer and food..

The crowd will look OK today for sure.. Cue loads of comments saying we knew Des was doing a grand job.. Crisis over..watch those comments roll in...

Forget the rest of the week.. Forgot they cannot fund this.. Forget they are not recognised by the WDF.. Forget how there's not one sponsor on that stage design no matter how nice it may look.... So yes Des is going a grand job because a half full venue doesn't look bad on TV one afternoon

Aye fully expecting the "people will have to eat humble pie" comments in about 50 minutes time.

because the ticket sales are apparently why there is no prize money, not the increase for the ladies nor anything at all yet announced for the mens even though it has started - polish bloke on the way home not yet knowing if he won bus fare :?
