Tonight's 'action' was what I would describe as 'total garbage'.

They have to rethink this four Irish players thing. Between them they won just 3 legs. Yes, I know they played nos 1-3 in the world but it's not good enough to justify their inclusion.

It's not good viewing, contrary to what Sky think, and it's surely unfair how the players that draw them practically have a bye.

With the first round format they have here it should be really exciting, with a genuine chance of the big guns, including Taylor, being elimintaed. The draw totally took away that opportunity. Okay, that was how the draw came out, nothing they can do about it, but it's equally unfair when two Irish players get to play each other first round, as in previous years.

It's a farcical situation.

Also, too many overrated players without the nerve and mental capability to be a top player dissappointing for the thousandth time. I hope Wes Newton can book this trend and not become one of these players; he seems comfortable and confident on stage these days.

Heaven forbid they give the crowd something and try and take the game worldwide.

Do you want Ally Pally to just be the top 64 in the OOM?

No, its called debating, give it a go. I dont feel the need to post "well done xxxxxx" after 20 other people have, but if someone posts something that I dont agree with I might engage in a discussion.

If thats too adult for you, don't talk rubbish and it might not happen.

In an ideal world, every tournament, regardless of location, would have an equal and diverse representation from all over the globe and there would be little to no advantage to your geographical location when trying to make it.

Each tournament has to pay attention to a number of things - what it is, its identity and where its held being just a few. Darts is so heavily favoured to English and has been throughout time - in the PDC all the PC events are in England, in the BDO/WDF there are more ranking events for the majors in England and Scotland than anywhere else. Therefore people based or born here have that advantage. Yes the competition is fierce, but do you think many of the players would swap that for trying to build a darting career oversees?

The small consolation from living in certain areas where big tournies are held is that they work in this way - that a seperate qualification criteria is there to recognise the location and it happens in most individual sports. Its there for a reason, Irish fans want to see Irish players for a start and it creates more balance to the onesided tour - plus its taking the game to a worldwide plane - which should be encouraged.

Guys, just a question about the double in rule that I can't answer for sure.

If a player hits tops first dart, then treble 20 with second dart, then treble twenty with 3rd dart but knocks out the first dart with his 3rd, will there be no score or will the 160 be deducted by tops so 120 score ?

Thansk for the answer.

Routy disagree with you about English favoured in BDO /wdf as more events in England! Steve and Tony west both based in holland both qualified for lakeside , steve didn't come to Brit open , welsh festival.
Belgium holland France and Germany plenty of ranking events even allowing for didam and tops of holland folding
Steve Tony gino joey and willy travel to some uk events but score heavily in Europe .
Even had time to snub ranking event to play in pdc on day ticket

Well said rout, where does this idiot get off, I watched the Irish contingent over the weekend and they were very talented players, how does he expect overseas players to break through if they are not given an opportunity....
