It's because the BDO isn't part of the WDF anymore mate, there's a thread on it somewhere.

What a muppet
“Deluxe have put together a seriously good team behind this , who are used to events at the very top of British and international sports.
They are certainly not muppets and must truly believe the BDO is marketable”

Only 1 event from the whole of the UK all year. First time ever there will not be a Brit in the top 64 of the world ranking with no BDO and 1 event
people can afford to go to at home. Mind you everyone might travel all over the world spending tend of thousands for a badge. Am sure all the young people will be flocking darts outside of Q school or the regional tours.

On the WDF Calendar virtually all the England Darts events are now on there..plus Scottish/Welsh etc .
Which means they will all be WDF ranked.. which surely means they will use WDF rankings for seedings (they have to) ... so surely means that they will not be eligible for BDO points - as they will not be seeded using the BDO rankings...

This is a bit of a mess isn't it.. ..which seedings will these events use.....??

Ah ok, I have not had a look.

Was told they applied for points so people will attend there events for the new TV event the WDF are doing.

So were does this leave the bdo? What does it mean for bdo points?
I guess clarity will come at some point but could this be the last bdo world champs?

All we can do is to sit and wait,

I think it may well be the last WC under the BDO Guidance/Banner unless they magically pull back in some massive money and also rectify themselves with the WDF.

I personally think this is the chance the WDF has been waiting for to take over and use the money that is being invested into the WDF system to get there own WC.

I am awaiting the news from the WDF they promised before 2020 about there new ranking system structure as this will show some clear indications to there intentions.

The WDF rules only mention there must be a single draw, they have categorisation, and that there are some rules about seeding introduced in later stages, having to win at least one game and reducing the player's points by 25%.

The seeding stuff they mentioned related to the BDO was because the BDO women's draw stuffing meant the BDO ended up not following it's own rules.

I don't think there's any obstacle to BDO ranking other than having to pay money.

"some rules about seeding introduced in later stage"

Well indeed. So what are they?
There will be 'some rules' about how they seed players I'm sure.

Sorry, but don't care x 3. No one has yet articulated how the demise of the BDO will have any overall negative impact to the darting world, and with Fallon's recent exploits most of those attempted justifications can be challenged to absurdity.

No no no no Darren on Digital Spy has said that if the BDO goes, nobody in pubs will be able to play darts anymore! Nobody!

I've already stopped playing darts in pubs. Just in case.

Also, I'm shite.
