Probably deserves it's own thread to be honest. Confirms what we all thought.

Good that they have referred your comments to their programmers. Perhaps now they know you watch it they will reconsider.

Des has obviously known that for weeks..Lakeside have known that for weeks which sort of confirms that Bob Potter is happy to stage it but not put up the sponsorship with no major TV coverage...all of which leaves the BDO in a mess and it's no wonder they are running round trying to get TV and /or sponsorship before they can confirm it's at Lakeside or wherever....very sad really

They have a sponsor.

Remember when Des gave his speech when he put his name forward for chairman ?
He claimed to bring in sponsors he had already lined up, I hope you are not suggesting he is a liar ?

So does this effectively put the final nail in the coffin for the top end “professional” side off the BDO.

Did Des tell everyone at the last meeting the contract wouldn't be renewed? Can't imagine this is a recent development, he would have known weeks if not months ago.

Depends who does broadcast this. If some 9th rate channel then I think it is the final nail.

The impact on morale will be unbelievable.

When on previous topics on fanatics folk say things like "let's get it back on the BBC" etc then I do wonder are they on the wind up or deluded.

The lack of discussion on both fanatic sites recently indicate though that a realisation that things looked doomed has set in.

unless they think there is still hope and a surprise is coming
