Oh I agree, that is over the top. But this is what proper marketing looks like. Hello, Ben.

Yes it's interesting that a BDO player has breathed new life into the PDC.

Theres definitely some irony in the way that a female player is now the biggest marketing gimmick that sky and the pdc have got, given how derogatory the fanboys have spoken about the womens game over the years.

Like football fans (most of whom make up pdc crowds, lets face it), its very fickle stuff.

Skewy is offended. His dream is to imprison all people that slag off the PDC

The only problem I've got with the Rise Of Fallon is that my missus (who can be a bit of a feminist when she wants to be) is now taking an interest in the darts as a result.

Which means I have to talk to her about it, and I could well do without that if I'm being honest.

There’s a narrative out there that the Sherrock phenomena just sort of dropped into the lap of the PDC and they ran with it. This ignores the fact that they planted seed of this by opening up the World Championship to women. Some might call it reaping what you sow (in a positive way).

Deta Hedman was a pointless answer on last night's show. Ladies darts is on the rise.
