Long live the BDO. Long live proper darts. Long live the official body of darts. And long live the BDO die hards who defend the BDO on social media.

Probably just the Sol Principe all-inclusive sangria talking, won't believe it until I see it on their website.

John Rawlings reaction to the initial Tweet: "Go Wolfie".

Yes, because a man who has been on the board before, and failed, is the answer to everything

It is good news, but probably too late to save the BDO. Let's hope not.

I think the BDO must be on the verge of collapse, hence the resignations.

What a coward.

Well there you have it, the great business man finally leaves with his tail between his legs.

If he makes a longer statement then we need to play Blame game Bingo.

1/ social media

So Des blew all the cash in the bank, now leaves the BDO in the shit with dealing with refunds for the torremolinos debacle

Is it even worth saving?

Or just put it into administration

Wipes out the BDO's cash reserves in less than 18 months,fiddles draws to get his wife seeded, pays out the lowest world championship prize money this century, owes £1000's to production companies, signs the BDO up to long term contracts that they cannot fulfill, cancels all super league and county darts, encourages people to travel to Torremolinos then cancels the comp and gets them stranded. Resigns. What a guy!
