Well they have said they have no interest whatsoever.
Besides you can't just take over, need to be voted in and they failed to get a spot at the last AGM so i doubt they could do better.

I'm assuming they are only defending the current board for trolling purposes then?

Hard to tell if they are really the only ones in the loop or are defending for defendings sake, the thing is backing this board is not going to ingratiate themselves with anyone.
To say give them time and wait and see is bizarre considering they have lost money 2 years in a row and now all this that's happened over the last few months.
Logically they must know something, it's the only thing that does make any sense but of course nobody could believe that surely?

They certainly have an agenda against the EDO.

Are the BDO going to officially announce the cancellation of the BDO Festival of Darts or are they going to pretend that it was never ever scheduled and say nothing?

He has gone very quiet since I asked him if he had stuck a forum members partners head on to some dodgy pics.

Yet they are privately canvassing support then going on social media talking about how they have the support of players in private and the players want them to stand up for the BDO against the people shouting it down.

It's obvious what they are doing, staying loyal to the BDO whilst trying to keep the opinion of them high. Then when the inevitable no confidence vote comes they jump straight in and say they will "reluctantly take over for the time being because they have the support of the players" then we're stuck with them.

The Jackin's taking over would just hasten the demise of the BDO.
No one in a commercial capacity (the world of big sponsors and TV companies) will take them seriously within 10 minutes of meeting them.
Their social media rants and alleged problems at their County have proven that

just things which were mentioned here a couple of years ago, they were brought up again a month ago.

Would you hand them a major sponsor/TV contract if they were running the BDO?

- BDO/their solicitor sent letters out to players at 1730GMT Friday cancelling the meeting, citing the agenda as being the reason they couldnt attend
- BDO Festival of Darts has been removed from the BDO diary on their website so that is now cancelled
- BDO accounts are due to be filed today or they will be fined

Those are the main three.

As an aside, does the name "Gilson Gray" mean anything to anyone?
