I’m not surprised by how optimistic the guesses are. The majority of the forum believes that there will be a huge surge in ticket sales in the next month.

Paddy can no longer call this a hate forum, we are truly behind the BDO in this new and exciting venture.

I did, it's bad management, no proper advertising, spelling mistakes, charging more than the PDC one at a time when many tighten their belts, lost the loyal Lakeside regulars who don't know about other dart events (Lakeside was part of their new year routine), I presume Bob Potter has the contacts/database for Lakeside regulars, players that not known by many dart followers never mind the casuals.

Also BDO fanatics had what 10k or 20k members on facebook surely if your a fanatic you would be getting tickets no matter what. They would not be influenced by comnents here.

I just think let it go ahead then criticise afterwards if warranted. At least give it a chance.

It is so sad to see the usual suspects belittling and slagging the BDO
Shame on them

A lot of posters predicting a lot of free or discounted tickets. Clever move.
Because they can’t sell anymore than a couple of thousand at the exorbitant prices

Paddy and BDOfan can you answet these 3 questions.

1. Is Des the right person to run the BDO?

2. Should they stop trying to compete with PDC, reduce prize funds etc to suit revenue?

3. Would you think it would be better to adjust the calendar so World Champs are played March/April time?

If they don't sell a few 1000 more at the full price what date are we predicting the winners cheque will be post dated to ?

Anyone running a comp for this ? ;)

1. Is Des the right person to run the BDO? Who else would you rather with the tools at their disposal?

2. Should they stop trying to compete with PDC, reduce prize funds etc to suit revenue? They do not try and compete with the PDC

3. Would you think it would be better to adjust the calendar so World Champs are played March/April time?
Absolutely, later in the year but in principle yes
